I rarely write a review or complain about food quality, but this outing was an event where the cost was far in excess of the value. We received the promotional beach flyer for the "sea food-meat dinner" for two which of course looked attractive. We returned later that evening and possibly being the only ones in the restaurant was a promontory sign. The waiter informed us that our dinner for two was the cheaper one on the menu in spite of the difference in name between brochure and menu. We held our ground, he phoned his manager and the 80 peso differential was waived. Given the disparity between the offer and waiter's intention we should have left, which was what we were about to do when the situation appeared to resolve. What followed was wonderful presentation at odds with preparation and taste. It was unnecessary to ask us how we wanted the meat done, as it was all overcooked...with a cold gravy on top to hide the fact. The vegetables were cold, the potatoes had sat in water and were mushy,although presented very nicely in tin foil swans, and the lobster had died of old age...A one star would be generous however the view was magnificent. Possibly the "two for one drink offer", which we did not use, could anesthetize one's palate enough to improve the star rating..there are many other choices and let your pesos talk.
