The restaurant is beautiful, the service. it's a set three course menu, and a little pricey. Not impressed at all.

My husband and I are staying at Casa Que Canta, so we have dined at Mar y Cielo almost every night, including Valentine's Day. We have tried the daily catch of red snapper & buzo, prepared grilled, fried and steamed in a banana leaf - all delicious. My husband also tried the Angus beef and rack of lamb, which he... More

A favorite of ours for a long time. No more. Our last visit will certainly be the last. The a la carte menu has been replaced by an ordinary menu of the day of three choices including desert for a fixed high price. The wine list is expensive. The food was well prepared and good but not the level we... More

Fabulous location on a deck high above the bay. Attentive service, but the food is far below the level of another close-by restaurant with sweeping views, Tentaciones. The main course of red snapper was prepared well, but was very simple. The accompanying rice and vegetables were Denny's like. However, the corn soup and ravioli appetizers were excellent. I'm torn between... More

WE had dinner on a lovely evening - obviously the location of the hotel and the restaurant are great selling points The food is highlighted as Mexican / French - uuhm - not quite sure about that - shall we split the difference and call it interesting! A limited menu - which is probably a good idea but might be... More

Dear Loraine W Thank you for providing us with your feedback regarding your dinner at our restaurant. Probably you have a point with the French cuisine. Sometimes, our daily menu includes dishes like Bouillabaisse, Créme Brûlée, Certified Angus Beef Fillet au Poivre, Skate with capers. Maybe none of those were in the menu the day you join us.

Food mediocre, lacking flavor Ambiance spoiled by large round lights that detracted from the view of the bay Staff professional and friendly but honestly there are many better choices for excellent food in the area

This is the restaurant at La Casa Que Canta. The wine list is extensive, the menu selections very broad ant the service exceptional. We celebrated our anniversary there and they presented us with a dessert that included our names and their best wishes. It is well worth a visit whether staying in the hotel or not.

Food was average (didn't taste nice, the portion was really small and overpriced). We ordered michelada and they charged separately 45pesos for the beer and 45 pesos for the clamato. However, the music (live music), service and atmosphere were excellent. Don't try the corazón de lechuga salad. It's horrible!!!
