this restaurant is located in the super hip new el mangrove hotel, and like the rest of the resort, it has a modern, relaed yet very stylish vibe. the menu is ambitious and sophisticated and the food is delicious--the short ribs were the best i've ever had, and all the dishes we tried, from the pasta with duck ragout to the sirloin to the fresh mozzarella and proscuitto salad, were first rate in terms of execution and presentation. the ourdoor seating area is a bit more tropical and relaxed than the sterile looking glass box that represents the "inside" part of the restaurant though if you fear mosquitos you may want to book indoors. the service is warm and welcoming and they really seem to care about the experience you are having. it is by no means a cheap meal, more like NYC prices, but everything is done beautifully so if you have done your research and know what kind of pricing to expect, you will likely be very happy.
