The place is beautiful with an amazing view, the service from the moment we walked in until we left was flawless, the food was fresh and perfectly made, we had the Tuna wrap, Corvina Taco, Churrasco and Lomito saltado, everything was perfect, the appearance and flavors. Overall we had a delightful lunch

Truly an amazing dining experience! I had the seabass and my girlfriend had some sort of pasta and we were both very impressed. The entertainment for the night really added to the overall tranquil, relaxing, yet elegant atmosphere of the restaurant. It's a great place for a couple to have a nice, romantic dinner with delicious food and excellent service.

First impression was greeted with an amazing architectonic structure of tall ceilings and amazing decor, transporting... More

My wife and I decided to celebrate our wedding at Alta hotel and the attention couldn't be better. The Hotel is very beautiful with great Lounges both indoors and outdoors.

La Luz restaurant and bar offers first class dining as well as exquisite service. I loved the choice of dishes and all of our meals were beautifully presented and very delicious. The proportions were also generous. I highly recommend La Luz to anyone seeking elegant dining in a tranquil serving. Dining at its finest.
