To start with there is nothing extraordinary wonderful or luxurious to justify the price. The assortment of items offered, while large, are plain and ordinary with little difference from the free breakfasts offered by Residence Inn. Yes there is an omelet station but how much is an omelet worth? The omelet Chef Mike is very personable and an excellent omelet... More

Since this is the only breakfast restaurant, they know they have you so the prices are very high. The a la carte options end up costing almost as much as the buffet if u plan to order coffee or other drinks so I suggest just going with the buffet. They buffet offerings are great and they include cappuccino with the... More

To begin with, the coffee which is locally grown is the best that I have ever had. The food is good, although pricey. You kind of forget about the cost though because the service is so good and everyone who works there is so nice.

Excellent food and service. A varity of food, breads, fruits, mimosa, ect at breakfast. An excellent service from the manager, Berta Castro to the waiter, Giovanni. It's a beautifull place for a romantic, family or business breakfast. My husband and me never feel the time run because it's nice atmosphere.

Mares is a very nice restaurant with friendly service. We only had the opportunity to enjoy their breakfast buffet, but it was very good. It was a complete array of foods you would normally expect for breakfast and my wife raved about the pancakes and french toast. One of the most important things about eating a good breakfast is having... More
