Awesome! The best meal we had in Punta Mita by far! There were at least 4 complimentary amuse bouche courses, each of them unique and delicious.

This is a real Foodie experience, it is beautiful and the food sophisticated. The service is impeccable and the wine list a dream!

We are staying at Imanta and decided to pop over for dinner... I'm so glad we did! The service, staff, selections, food was increiblé!!!!! Perfect portion sizes, every dish done so well.. My hubby ordered an Irish coffee and that was an experience on it's own. Definitely eating here when we return!

What an unexpected dining treat at a resort restaurant! Carolina exceeded our expectations. The view was fantastic, Cesar - our waiter - was wonderful, and Chef Alfredo Lopez came and spoke with us at the end of the meal. The amuse bouche to start was divine and consisted of foie gras macarons, carrot puree with beets, and 2 others. We... More

Too often, you simply just have a meal while you are traveling and don't really have a memorable experience. Carolina's delivers on all fronts - quality of food, the view and the setting, but most importantly the service from Alberto and the entire team. You will not be disappointed!!

Dinning here is truly a fantastic experience. If you're staying at the St. Regis or even remotely close it can't be missed. Caesar was fantastic to us and very knowledgable in helping us with our wine selections and explaining to us a bit about wines in Mexico, an area where my wine knowledge is lacking. The amuse bouche we were... More
