We had heard good things about Emilio's and decided to try it for dinner. The waiter did not seem very invested in making sure that we had a good experience; he was definitely not as friendly as the staff at other restaurants we visited. I can't remember what we ordered for dinner, so it was not bad but not amazing.... More

The quantity of food was good but the garlic fish was kinda bland. The setting is picturesque with a wonderful view, nice music and the all important breeze.

Disclaimer: We didn't actually eat here. Someone recommended this restaurant to us, but when we got there they had a sign outside saying that they don't take plastic, so we just turned around and left. It seemed a little rundown, to be honest, but since it was recommended, I'd be willing to give it a try another time if I... More

This place felt like a locals spot with great food, an amazing view and cool vibe. we loved the food. It was one of the few places that had a locals casado plate in the area.

We arrived at Emilio's for dinner, fresh from the honking horns and jubilant yells celebrating a World Cup win. Emilio's friendly welcome began a charming evening. We enjoyed the pleasant atmosphere, beautiful view, terrific fish dishes, nice wine list, and the on the house limoncello. Wish we had an Emilio's in our home town.

Great views. Yummy food. Friendly service. Highlights include all of the fresh baked breads and goods - it seems everything is made from scratch. Definitely check it out.

I honestly wish we had gone here more. Even though they only accept cash. Emilios is great for a big group and the view (no matter where you sit) is really amazing. Monkeys also came to visit us as we were eating, but they seem to have trained them very well not to actually come inside the restaurant. I wish... More
