Best there is.

We are here the first night, and every time we thought about eating at another place, we just kept saying, "but this place was just so good!"

This is, by far, the best restaurant in the San Ramon area. The food, the attention to detail is amazing!. The only negative thing I must mention (and I am not sure management can do anything about this) is the deplorable state of the 11 kilometer road leading to the resort from the main highway. Other than that is a... More

Morning, lunch and dinner were all terrific. After coming back from the states I'm still trying to recreate the "typical breakfast" I kept getting. Even as a pescatarian with pretty severe milk allergies there were some A+ options and I loved every single one of them. The dishes are so creative it's insane! I can't even begin to mention how...

I loved the breakfast at this restaurant. Everything was fresh and delicious. I had my destination wedding reception here and everyone loved the food. The staff was amazing.

Just fascinating.... loved the presentation, the taste is just rich and the service is lovely. It is a dinning experience worth having. And being in the middle of the cloud forest makes it even better.

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 I was... 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!
