Great food and good service

We had breakfast here on the outside patio. The wait staff were very sweet and Bernice came out to make sure we were all enjoying our meals. We all ordered something different and the food was delicious.

Food decent, service average. The Bistro down by the pool is more enjoyable, better food and service

I only had breakfast here but it was delicious. Very nice staff, but very slow service. In the past, lunch menu has been delicious as well and healthy!

The chef uses fresh local ingredients with fusion flavors in the dishes. The restaurant serves the plates family style.

A great place to have breakfast during your stay at Bacara. The Bistro on the resort offers a mediocre breakfast buffet, and I liked the breakfast options here much better. Try the egg white omelet and the Acai bowl, you won't regret it!

After enjoying spa treatments take a few steps and you are at the spa café. Delicious offerings and innovative cocktails. The best part is you don't have to get dressed to head over and enjoy. Perfect spot for after spa treatments!

The Spa Cafe is bright, airey and cheerful. Everything about it was excellent: the food, service and atmosphere. We had brunch so be sure to check times: one day we went back and they were closed.
