The best ravioli I have ever eaten

Initially we went there as a group of 7, everyone was happy with their food. I absolutely loved my spinach and ricotta ravioli in sage butter, so much so I returned there for our last dinner on the island. The service was also really good.

Although this restaurant is at the back of a shopping center they have a lovely enclosed patio area with large mangrove tree trunks providing the support. The food is quite good, with handmade pasta & local seafood. We also had mango cocktail that was as good as any I've ever had - mango, pj, rum & prosecco in an ice-cold... More

A fantastic meal, and it was nice to talk with the owner, who told us about all the dishes. Everything we had was really good. Great Italian entrees, and the fresh fish carpaccio was great as well.

We had dinner at this beautiful little restaurant with its own patio. It was comfortable and relaxing. The food was really really nice! one minus- the toilet is really really bad for this restaurant. No toilet seat and you need a key to get in. Its a closed off space with TL lights and lots of flies/mosquitos. But apart from... More

The place is at the back of a shopping plaza but they have tables outdoors on a terrace. The place may be the trendiest I were on my trip and the dinner was awesome. The chef I think it is italian, so we ate one of the best meals of the trip. You have to go. Desserts were delicious.

We went twice during our weeklong stay on the island. The food was outstanding. Both times we had merlot and it was fantastic and not served chilled (as it is in much of the island). The celery/orange/chile compote to put on top of the bread is to die for!! We also ordered salads - caprese for me and gorgonzola and... More

We were wandering around the island looking for some dessert and we found this restaurant. The place is very nice, very Mexican chic. We had the tiramisu, the carrot cake and an Italian cake named Capri which was perfect since my mother doesn't eat gluten! We all loved our desserts! A bit expensive but you can't get picky on an...

Thoroughly enjoyed this spot that isn't easy to find in a small downtown. Owner of Palapas del Sol suggested it, and she was right. Very attentive knowledgeable staff. Great owners who really rake pride in their business.
