We didn't stay at the Horned Dorset, but decided to try its Restaurant Aaron after having a disappointing "special occasion" dinner in San Juan. We had some reservations about eating there because we had heard that the former head chef had moved back to the East Coast, but we were pleasantly and delightfully surprised at the quality of the experience, both in the restaurant and in the fabulous food. The ambiance is very genteel and lovely; the waitstaff were great. We enjoyed drinks downstairs on the patio overlooking the beach and the waves - very romantic! Dinner was similarly lovely: candlelit, quiet, formal, beautiful decor. Regardless of the ambiance, the food was superb: we split an appetizer of cornmeal and pancetta stuffed quail; our main courses were red snapper and duck; and we split a white chocolate and lime souffle for dessert. All were fantastic - the new chef is definitely a keeper! We would not hesitate to dine there again.
