The breakfasts are phenomenal, plentiful, and prepared with care and the views are unbeatable- all 5 morning we enjoyed them we couldnt stop smiling. Dinners are prepared perfectly and the presentation is second to none. We had dinner here 3... More

The food at El Mirador was delicious. The cooks and server even stayed late because we ended up showing up at the restaurant just before it closed without knowing their hours. I had delicious chicken/vegetable rice and my boyfriend loved the pasta he ordered. We also had breakfast here since we stayed in the hotel. It was so good! Gallo... More

Once you get over the slightly treacherous drive down a dirt road to arrive at this place, you will be enchanted by its beauty and will be glad you made the trek. Once you park, they take you by golf cart to the top of the hill through a mystical rain forest to the lovely restaurant located with a perfect... More

Had the soapa negra, ceviche trio, steak, and snook. This meal was just about good as any meal I have ever eaten. No real complaints. Service slow but attentive. Really wonderful, glad to have eaten here. Lovely hotel and location.

The whole restaurant is in a beautiful resort. The treck down there was an experience in itself, a golf cart had to pick us up and take us up a fairly large hill in the forest to get to the hidden resort/restaurant. Once we got there, the cocktails were to die for. I was in a group of 6 girls... More

Ate here five times over the course of a week-long vacation, so tried nearly everything on the menu between myself and girlfriend. Everything was consistently good...tasty, fresh, perfect portions. Excellent service contributed to good experience.

This is the main restaurant of the expensive Arenas del Mar Resort but is open to other diners - and we see from another review, also delivers meals in the area. As a non- resident diner, the experience begins with a pretty steep downwards road by taxi or car. You then arrive at the resort's first reception area - an... More
