My husband and I visited the restaurant several times during our honeymoon stay in Malpais and had a great experience each time. The food is excellent, the setting is pretty and the staff (Jeff in particular) are extremely accommodating.

Had the best meal here! The chefs tasting menu was outstanding. The staff was so gracious and welcoming. We ended up wishing we had stayed here! Don't miss the chicken chowder or the walnut chocolate chip ice cream sandwich.
