Have been there many times over the years. Food remains excelent, the service is the best in town. The menu offers a great variety of choices, including many beef options. Food is consistently excelent, although somewhat conservative in its recipes. We liked the brie with blackberry sauce, the tomato soup and the truffle gnocchi a lot. The beef dishes were... More

I didnt expect this restaurant to be as excellent as it turned out. From their house red to the caprese salad to the incredible entre. Everything was perfect.

Have a fancy steak or a wonderful burger. Everything will be perfect. The place is special and it deserves more than the 5 stars I can rate it in here.

When asked to recommend a good restaurant near to the hotel, the front desk staff told us that the hotel restaurant was excellent. After driving all day, we decided to go with the closest option presented, completely unaware that the restaurant does not allow shorts, probably because they are located right next to the hotel pool. When we walked into... More

There wasn't cocktail sauce, but instead a sort of Russian dressing on some local starchy vegetable, which was interesting, but not a good combination with the shrimp. crab bisque was faintly sea-foody. Salad was simple, but the vegetables were not crisp.... More

An excellent dining experience if you want fine food and a personalized service. Their menu offers a large and exquisite variety of international cuisine with a French basis. Food portions are well balanced and, as you will expect, quality and freshness is always present.
