Which nights would you substitute for a la carte?

We will be staying at Grand Bahia Princ. Bavaro.

I understand that the buffet nights are as follow:

Monday - Espanolo

Tuesday - Italian

Wed - Oriental

Thurs - Gala (seafood)

Fri - Dominica

Sat - Mexican

Sun - American

If I am choosing the following a la cartes what nights would you put the a la cartes on?

Maiko Japanese

Le Gourmet

The Garden Grill

Il Capriccio

Thanks

I wouldn't substitute any of them.Restaurans serve the same food as the Buffet but in different way .Bahia has very nice Buffet and we eat there every day.We are just to tired in the evening after " all day fun in the sun" to sit and wait -when everything is ready and in great variety :0)

Thats good to know, but if we are going to do the a la cartes we have to fit them in somewhere. Only there for the week.

We are the opposite - we like to do the a la cartes as much as possible if only for the fact that it is more like dinning out. But saying that I must admit we were a little disappointed in the Bahia a la cartes since they were partly buffet anyway - the only thing you ordered was your main course.

I would ask myself which type of food I eat more of and enjoy the most - Italian, Mexican etc and those would be the nights I would save for the buffet.

I am with sackie dining in the evening is about sitting together and being served and looked after

It is even nice to have an a la carte option for breakfast and lunch as well

Just proves we are all different

I'm with B-Sun. We were at Ambar last week. Out butler made reservations for us (not at our request) at 3 a la cartes. We canceled them. The buffet food is very good and we didn't want to be tied down to certain times/places. We were on vacation. No schedules!

Right, different strokes for different folks.

That's the beauty of going to a resort which does not require reservations
