I didn't book a room at the hotel, but I did eat several times at the restaurant. The food is simply outstanding. Chef Jose and his sidekick Juan are way more talented and qualified than you would normally find for a small informal dining area like that at La Amistad. The owner Don is friendly, smart, and quite innovative, and he should expand the restaurant to take advantage of the fine staff he has managed to get on board.
Favorite dish: fish with porcini mushrooms, vegetables and mashed potatoes.
