Thank you Guillermo and the rest of the staff. The food was very good and we appreciated the range of selection and portion sizes.

Food was very good with a wide-ranging menu. Breakfast they tend to over cook eggs, but more than made up for with dinner. Steaks were good but my favorite was various trout dishes.

Visited with my gf for dinner while staying at another hotel. Do recommend making a reservation because space is limited. Beautiful installations and good food make this the best dining option I've known in San Gerardo. Service is good and attentive. Would go again.

We were in the cloud forest and chose Le Tapir for lunch, because the restaurant is all windows and hangs on the edge of the mountain. We thought at worst, we'd at least have a good view. We had the trout with hearts of palm...More

We had several delicious meals here. The chef was very creative. Breakfasts choices ranged from pancakes to bagels with smoked salmon, lunches were excellent and dinner meals were gourmet delights. The atmosphere is romantic especially at dinner time. All was perfect.
