Very nice place to eat

We stayed within walking distance of La Finesterra so it was very convenient. We had appetizers to go from there our first night there. The nachos and chicken wings were great!

We took our Mahi over to have it cooked. They did - four ways! It was so good. As was the chicken portobello and the ribs. And the apple crisp was amazing! Eddie and Eric are very attentive and want to make your dinner memorable. Sit outside and enjoy the gorgeous sunset or moonrise!

This is a nice establishment with a beautiful view of the beaches and water. The night we were there, there was virtually no other diners there. The food (BBQ ribs) were not heated through and cold. The waiter was nice, but could not overcome the poor food.

Hello Sir Dave Sorry for your bad experience For the next time the best way is to return the dish and talk to the manager it would be great to settle the problems at the moment I think what happened is that day we had too much windy and the food is cooled too fast. I care so much what... More

Our Villa was in walking distance to the restaurant/hotel. We did not investigate anything about the restaurant as it did not pop up as top 10. That said, my wife and I had drinks there twice on the cliff view patio which is awesome. Then they opened for our family of 5 early on our last night due to our... More

They just couldn't figure it out! In a beautiful location with a fabulous view, they consistently disappointed! With a target customer of North Americans, almost none of their servers or bartenders spoke any English! For a while, they attracted a decent "Happy Hour" crowd, but nobody stayed for dinner. The prices were just too high for the mediocre food they... More

The view from this restaurant/hotel is well worth the hike up the hill. We had dinner and were disappointed in the food quality. My recommendation: go for happy hour (5-7), but have dinner elsewhere.

You cannot beat this view! Word of advice, drive here because the hill is a killer! The food and drinks are great but they are pretty pricey. It recently changed management, I'm hoping they reign in the prices a bit. The menu doesn't offer much, but what it does they do quite well. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the... More

I ordered a Cobb salad, and was pleasantly surprised at their fresh, light take on the old standard. Everyone at our large table was happy with their dinner selections. We dined on the terrace overlooking the bay. No mosquitoes, but we saw a large locust inside on a shelf in the bar area (probably harmless). Our waiter cheerfully took photos... More
