Loved it!! Beautiful setting. Grand and charming. It is a hotel, too, but we just went for a late lunch on a Wednesday.
Food was great! We all tasted a bit of eachother's so I speak from firsthand experience of all of these dishes... I had the Tequila-Lime shrimp - it was very tasty jumbo shrimp and potatoes and asparagus. While it was a solid good, I gotta say it paled in comparison to the two dishes my friends had.
One friend had the pork tibil - big big meal probably good for two to share unless you're really hungry. Such tender and delicious pork - with a lovely delicate flavouring. You get rice with it and onions and little tortillas to warp it up in. Yum!
The other friend had the grouper with zucchini scales and pumpkin seeds. Awesome delish!!!!!
We topped the meal off with a few after dinner drinks - one had the local drink that starts with "X" which was nice - kind of a black licorice taste. I had the Tio Pepe which I kinda didn't like - but what do I know about after dinner drinks (not much!). The other had Ferreiro port - very nice.
Overall a really lovely meal in a beautiful setting!
