It's all about the chicken!

We stayed at the hotel for a week and ate at the restaurant every day, so we got to experience most of the dishes on the menu. It was always a pleasure when it was time to eat, and the daily specials were creative and enticing. This restaurant has reminded me what chicken used to taste like when... read more

We were not staying at the hotel but came for lunch. The restaurant was very clean and we were met by friendly staff. The view is great and service good. Our lunch was delicious! After lunch we took a walk on the trail and saw a rather large tarantula-kind of exciting! I would definitely recommend eating here!

This food is incredible! I will say that after 3 days here, I wouldn't have minded a little more variety in the menu, as it changes from lunch to dinner (and our free breakfast was incredible!!!), but those menus don't change much from day to day. So, by the end of our stay, I had sampled most of the dinner... More

I have eaten here several times in the past few years and I have to say I'm done. The food is disappointing for the quality of hotel that this claims to be. It's uninspiring, uncreative, and frankly just pretty average. Given the beautiful setting, the prices (not cheap!), you would expect something much better. They need to bring in a... More

This place is amazing! Everything is fresh and quality. Service is excellent. If we are lucky enough to get to go back to CR we are going to stop here just for the food. The hotel around it is also amazing and very peaceful. A must!!!
