Ivan made me feel like Dinner was prepared special, just for my birthday. His service was exceptional, made me feel like a queen! Fast, courteous, above and beyond he waited on my family and myself with pizzazz! The food was to die for, salmon cream soup, rack of lamb with lobster....wow!

We visited Le Gourmet at GBP Coba just last week in Nov 2015. We had the salmon soup which was delicious; the salmon appetizer which was good but quite large; the fois gras which I did not enjoy; the filet mignon which was delicious but a very small serving; the duck which was just okay; and the wonderful chocolate fondant...

As usual and knock your sandals off meal that any foodie would appreciate. Great to see the dress code enforced as well.

Our last night was spent here. We had steak which was nice. The place was only about 10% full at 9pm which was strange. No atmosphere and the staff didn't want to make us a flambe coffee at the end because they wanted to close up. Shame

The food here is amazing. It is beautifully presented, but if you are a guy, you may find the portions small. If you ask for a liquor coffee after your meal, you are in for a surprise, the staff make it in front of you, and light the alcohol which burns blue as it goes into the glass.

As with some of the other reviewers, we thought that this restaurant was the best that we had eaten in at the Bahia Principe resort. The service was excellent, Alexander was notable in his service level, and the food was top drawer. Don't know if this is meant to be the best restaurant in the area, but it will take... More

Staff very attentive, food good, seems small portions but we all left full. You need a good 90 minutes for the meal.
