Great food

Its rare that i give a 5 point review. But i really appreciated the restaurant. For 3 days we had dinner here. We tried different dishes, meat, fish and seafood. Very good taste and texture. I loved the beef fillet with mostaza. Also desserts are good, like the Narajna surprise. Not so wide... read more

We just went there for lunch we didn't stay at the hotel. The view from the restaurant was beautiful. But the food was appalling, undercooked,cold,tasteless and floating in grease. For such a great setting the food was a real disappointment. Could do much much better.

We were not staying at the Hotel but did go out there for dinner. We had stayed there last year & loved the Hotel & staff. Unfortunately this was not the case for our dinner on Monday night. The staff was unfriendly, the "manager" was inappropriately dressed & looked as though he had just rolled out of bed at 7:00... More

Great food with a good selection of wine. Some wines are a bit overpriced. We had the new year's buffet that was simply amazing. Grazie!

We stopped in for a fresh watermelon drink and took in the most spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. This resort had a swimming pool and lush gardens with a full restaurant on site. I would definitely look into staying here.

the menu was rather restricted but the food was lovely and all the staff were very kind and attentive. The owner told us that there are going to have an Italian chef so it might be better.... perfect excuse for us to give it a try again next year as we loved this setting!

We were guests at the hotel and our first meal was so good, we decided to eat there every night of our stay. There are always a variety of apps (entradas) and a revolving menu of entrees that are prepared with care. My favorite dishes were the Mussels served in a creole sauce and served over tostones as well as... More

Oh, the food is good, but the service is so slow, it's unbearable. And with about six tables, this is really crazy. Been there twice in the past three months. It's not the hassle with such a long wait.

This is a restaurant with a view. Must make reservation because hotel guests get first seating. Good food and great service. It's an adventure getting there because of the road but it's worth the trip even if you don't like the food the view on a full moon night is worth it. Will dine here again.

The food was very good and creative. Breakfast was included and it included wonderful, fresh fruit and usually an egg dish. The dinner menu was different every night and the choices were creative and full of flavor
