The food and ambiance here is unbeatable. It's an intimate restaurant with excellent staff, and the food is great. We ate here for breakfast, lunch, and dinner while staying at Villa Blanca, so I think we tried almost everything on the menu. We were never dissapointed. During lunch we would sit outside on the covered patio and watch the clouds... More

During my recent trip to Villa Blanca for business, we stayed in the hotel a majority of the time. This meant we ate at the restaurant for almost every meal. I had no complaints! Their chef was incredible. Every meal was flavorful and cooked to perfection! I was glad we were there for 6 days because it meant I could... More

After enjoying many meals at this tastefully appointed restaurant I was afraid that after my vacation I would split my pants. However, everything was so fresh and perfectly seasoned, it was weighed down with lots of fats. I feel like the meals I enjoyed there energized me for the daily hikes I took on the property.

Dinner & Breakfast were fabulous. Coffee infused steak, fish & chicken dishes were fresh & creative in there use of herbs & vegetables sourced on property or bought local. Couldn't get enough of the homemade yogurt & granola!

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
