Very attentive service, excellent food and perfect ambience. The waiter actually found us a dry spot to wait (it was raining) and personally came n got us when our table was ready. The place is small but tasteful and intimate, and has a feel of quality-over-quantity which i love. We had a abeautiful evening!!

My husband found this little restaurant by reading tripadvisor reviews and it was everything people said it would be. LOCATION We stayed at Paradisus La Esmeralda so the total trip via taxi took about 10 minutes costing $12 total. It is located one block (1min 45sec walk) from "5th Avenue" shopping strip so was easy to get to then go... More

We have eaten here several times over the past few years. It is a true delight! The continental fare is award winning. From the Oh La La and Mediterranean salads to the Spanish garlic shrimp appetizers the first course tantalizes the taste buds. Our entrees of curry beef, seared ahi tuna and the Madras curry with shrimp were delectable. The... More

All the food we had at this restaurant was delicious. Make reservations in advance as we saw several people get turned away that did not have reservations. There are only 10 or so tables so seating is limited. It is a romantic and quiet place for dinner. The food is well presented and great. You can tell that the chef... More

Small, with a few outside tables (we had our own outside for the 3 of us that was very intimate, with a view on the open kitchen) and a couple more tables inside (were the lights are at the level of a food court...total lack of ambiance inside). Also the patio chairs were not very confortable... Without being pretentious, it... More

This is another fabulous find in PDC. The food was amazing. Highly recommend the tuna dishes (especially the soy butter tuna) - simply melts in your mouth. Everything on the menu sounded delicious and it was hard to decide what to choose. Doubt that you will be disappointed with anything that you choose. The beverage menu was great. I had... More
