Name has been changed, food still good but service more disorganized than poor. I didn't get a glass of water until ready to leave, my omelet took an inordinate time to arrive and it wasn't what I'd asked for. I sure didn't send it back...or I might still be there. As long as I'm nitpicking the shrimp in the omelet were overcooked and rubbery. The buffet seemed to have less options too. This is a no return for me.More

Sunday Brunch at Taste was much less than expected. The buffet offered roast beef that was definitely served a day or two before, and dried out by Sunday morning. The pork ribs looked wonderful, but they were hard and obviously leftovers from the dinner menu...days before. The pancakes were the only saving grace of the buffet. And, you had to ask for the maple syrup. Not explained to us when we sat down on arrival, eggs are ordered separately. So, by the time our egg orders arrived, we had already finished food from the buffet. The eggs were now an unnecssary afterthought. For dessert, I had a bland slice of key lime pie - how do you make key lime pie bland? Overall, there are so many better and less expensive places to enjoy a great breakfast in PV, so there is no reason to come here. We will not return!More

We had several excellent meals at Casa Cupula. Two of the best were on the rooftop, including a private dinner for my partner's birthday and a chef's tasting dinner. Juan was an attentive and kind server, and he worked hard to make our meals elegant,...fun, and smooth. Chef Cesar is a fantastic cook, and everything was outstanding. Jesus assisted with the bar and serving. Highly recommend!!More

4 friends went for a Sunday brunch. Value overall was OK but not special and not worth the effort or cost. Service was fine. Food. Was re-circulated and somewhat dismal. I think trading either on past glories or aspiration rather than reality. Could be very...good but....More

Last night we had the ‘dining under the stars’ experience where chef Elvira and her team came to our suite and prepared an outstanding 5 course meal with paired wines. We arrived back from the beach to a beautifully laid out table on our balcony,...including candles and lanterns, with a bucket of wine on ice. We’ve been lucky enough to have some incredible dining experiences all over the world and this was nothing short of perfection. Each course was beautifully and creatively presented and even more delightful to eat - you can tell she’s worked in a three-star Michelin restaurant! Not only this, but the service we received was second-to-none with chef Elvira personally serving each of the courses. This really was the most special way to end our honeymoon and will be something we talk about for many years to come. Thank you to chef Elvira, her sous-chef Caesar, and Juan our server for an amazing experience. We cannot recommend this enough and hope to return!More

We had the "Dinner Under the Stars" on the balcony of our suite overlooking the ocean and we could not have been more pleased. Chef Elvira and her team were fantastic. Imagine an outdoor table with a tablecloth with roses and lanterns watching the sunset...over Banderas Bay...now add in a 5 course FANTASTIC meal. It was truly amazing. We started with the most wonderful tortilla soup followed with mahi mahi a la Veracruz which was delicious and presented so creatively on a piece of slate stone. Next up was a 3 cheese portabello rissoto that was decadent. Honestly, I was getting full at this point, but it was so good, I slowed down and found room. The final main course were giant langostinos cooked to perfection--tender and juicy and not overcooked and rubbery like so many chefs do. We finished with a delicious flan for dessert. To top all of this off, the chef brought the mixologist with her and we had a drink that matched each course of the meal--Thanks bartender Jesus. Not only was the meal delicious, each course was presented beautifully. The creativity of the presentation was definitely pleasing and added to the effect. I really cannot say enough positive things about this experience. Taste restaurant made my 40th birthday dinner a truly special and amazing event. I would highly recommend you spend an evening with the talents of Chef Elvira at Taste Restaurant or with the Dinner under the Stars event in your suite.More

After finding a special for the Sunday buffet on Foursquares, we decided to drive there and give it a try, we drove almost an hour to get there. As we go in everyone was nice and they told us that they didn't have as much...food because it's low season, which I fully understand. Ordered a mimosa which came with the buffet and my husband a virgin bloody cesar. Started inquiring about the special to be told no there is no special. Showed the manager the advertisement, he said that they did not put it there, showed him the date, may16th and still denied. Then asked him how much was the buffet I said 299 is written on the table, he says no that's a mistake it's 329 pesos now but will leave for you at 299. We are for from 2/1, anyways asked if they would honor the special, he said no, By then he was starting to get upset, we got up and left, said to me i'm not charging you the bloody cesar but you have to pay the mimosa, told him I wasn't paying for this small glass and started going up the stairs. He was really rude, started taking a picture of us or a video saying these customers left without paying their breakfast, which is false , we ate nothing and then he told us go eat your little breakfast at 150 pesos for the 2 of you. OMG I was so upset to be treated like this, been living here many years and this never happened to us. Needless to say will never return there. The setting is beautiful, the food looked great but the rest was quite ordinary.More

During our stay at Casa Cupula we visited Taste restaurant several times. Service was always good, and all the food we had was excellent. Sunday brunch was quite a spread with lots of different buffet choices, there were also made to order options available, and...one minosa was included in the price. It was quite popular with guests.More
