We went to El Palomar for my birthday and it didn't disappoint. The food is good and the service was awesome. We did the flaming Mexican coffee which is a must at the end of the meal.

I have eaten here many times and the food is usually good, the views are fantastic and service is always good. It’s a little hard to get to but well worth it. Be sure to order the flaming coffee after your dinner.

Great view . Over all just a ok place to eat a little pricy for substandard food . To many other places to go would skip this one with a little improvement might be better .

The price for everything that they had was perfect. Not too high and not low, just right. Believe me, after you go there no matter what you pay it will be worth it. You will never stop going there.

Most people would not consider this a local hangout type of place. It is an elegant, high-end restaurant. Prices are not outrageous, especially with the good exchange rate, but it is not a "regular basis" restaurant. More... More
