The cab driver recommended Hemingway’s to us on our way to the Westin from the airport. I was skeptical at first cause I’ve had bad experiences with cab drivers and thought that he probably got some sort of kickback. I’m so glad that I didn’t listen to that inner voice and made it out to Hemingway’s!
On our last night (Sunday) we walked out to Hemingway’s (about 10 min walk from the Westin). Prior to dinner I was pretty stressed because I wanted to make sure I ended my trip with a great dinner. It was a slow night for them with maybe 3 other tables. We chose to sit inside versus outside on the patio because I didn’t want to risk getting eaten alive by the mosquitoes. It was a romantic setting (candles, high ceilings, ocean breeze).
Our waitress was nice (although slow). The chef made us a complimentary tasting of tuna and that was delicious. For appetizers, we ordered the scallops. This was very good (portion was small though). I don’t remember what was in the sauce, but it definitely all worked together. As a main course I ordered the Paella Valencia and my boyfriend ordered the Mushroom Ravioli. Dinner was good, but what made this restaurant hit the top of my list was dessert and drinks. We ordered the sticky toffee pudding and I really wish that I could format this text and make it bold because it was amazing!!! My bf and I already went in with high expectations since everyone says it’s the best and they were not lying. If I knew it would be that good, I probably wouldn’t have filled myself up with the paella. Also, the Mango Mojito was probably the best drink I ordered on the island. It was so good that I ended up ordering 2. My bf started with an Island Breeze and later ordered another Mango Mojito because he really liked mine. We spent about $160 US after tip (pricey) but compared to some of the other meals we had for that price, I thought it was worth it. If you are on a tight budget, I recommend at least stopping by for dessert and drinks!
We walked back to the Westin along the Seven Mile Beach with smiling faces.
