Horrible experience...first we tried to call and make reservations for two days and they didn't answer the phone. We went up on Friday night anyway after failing to reach them thinking it would be slammed but we arrived and we were the only people there. If you don't like looking at those ASPCA ads on tv then don't go here...there are malnourished animals all over the place. After ordering two less than stellar well tequila margaritas and discovering our bill was already $28, we didn't even bother to order dinner. The waiter asked my girlfriend how much cash she had in her wallet and came up with the drink prices after she showed him...mistake on our part. Menu was lacking and food was overpriced. You would think there would be a nice ambience of music and forest sounds, however we were serenaded with the sounds of a buzz saw due to some precariously scheduled dinner time construction...I don't expect the level of efficiency and service you might find in the states but come on....it doesn't take an expert to understand basic customer service. Oh,don't forget to bring at least $100+ for this experience....it will cost you 180mxp both ways (if you barter the prices) for a cab plus overpriced dinner and drinks... Of course they do not take credit cards. Overall advice: rent a car, drive up and take pictures at sunset and then get back in your car and drive away before they try to charge you for taking in the view. Skip it and save yourself the strong desire to throw the wait staff off the porch.
