Something special

Elegant atmosphere with view of pool and the sea, located in the Costa de esta hotel. Visited for lunch and enjoyed the Cuban influence. The service was great as well. I ordered Mahi and the seasoning was perfect. I will visit this restaurant again.

My husband and I do not dine out frequently because we hate spending hard-earned money on restaurants that are so-so at best. That was not the case last night when we dined at The Wave Kitchen and Bar in the Costa d'Este Beach Resort. Everything was perfect: atmosphere, service, the food and its presentation. Because we were at The Wave... More

The restaurant is lovely but the acusticsl are not conducive for conversation. The service,though friendly, was very slow. The Cuban sandwich was outstanding as was the fish on pasta. The rest were average. The food could have been served hotter. I had to get new silverware because mine had food stuck on it. That should never happen.

This restaurant offers pretty good Cuban food. I just wish there was a view of the ocean instead of looking at hotel guests swimming in the pool

We did not make a reservation and were told there was space at the bar tables. They are low tables with more of a lounge feel. We understand that reservations are often needed but we arrived at almost 9 pm in Vero Beach which is a smaller town and 9 is definitely past the "prime time" for dining. We had... More
