An extensive menu of French inspired cuisine, but not overly rich, with excellent service. Restaurant is for dinners age 12 and over.

I see that our good friend Bezerk has already reviewed our dinner at Piaf, so I will just try to add a few new details rather than repeat her comments. As her review noted and my review titles indicates, our celebratory dinner at Piaf ranks as one of the best meals I've ever enjoyed. Remarkably, on this trip to the... More

We dined with another couple at Piaf , the French inspired, fine dining restaurant located in Grand Velas Resort while staying at Casa Velas. This is an upscale restaurant serving adults and children over 12. Personalization is key here. We went on Feb 24, 2014 to celebrate the ladies birthdays one before this date and one afterwards. Raquel was our... More

Piaf is the upscale restaurant at the Gran Velas resort - No shorts, no tank tops or swimming trunks allowed. Children under 12 are also not allowed. This is NOT a restaurant for the masses - It caters to people who want to enjoy fine cuisine The tasting menu was simply delicious - They only have so many per night... More

I stay at the Gran Velas each year and was sad to learn that they had dropped the Lobster Risotto which was my favorite dish there. They did have a Wild Mushroom risotto on their menu and I do love a wide variety of mushroons I was very disappointed when I found out they where just your plain old commercial... More

Ate at Piaf while visiting the Grand Velas Resort and came away less than impressed. The meal was a bit overhyped and under seasoned. My filet was ordered medium rare, and was more on the rare side. The Escargot appetizer was tasty, as were the sea scallops. Another couple ordered the ribeye and its was mostly gristle and touch as... More

The Piaf restaurant is in the Grand Velas resort, so rather a trial to get to unless you're staying there. If you are, however, this is the place to go for a special occasion. It's a little hard to find, being upstairs in the Ambassadors portion of the hotel and reachable by a bit of a hiike through the hotel... More

The overall resort was a bit over the top for us, but this restaurant was spectacular. The service is second to none, and the food equalled the service. Don't be put off by small portions when they start, if you get all courses then you will be more than full, it is just spread out; you are forced to enjoy... More

Our stay at the Velas Resort was the greatest time ever. Our favorite restaurant was Piaf because Chef Marco made us feel so special and the food was outstanding. Every on tray was cooked to perfection, delicious and presented so attractively and the service was impeccable. We can't wait to come back for seconds.
