The restaurant is beautiful and the drinks, appetizers and meal was delicious! The chef came out and explained the menu. I could see through the window in the kitchen while the... More

We visited as we walked past the restaurant on a beach walk. The Menu looked great and we gave it a go. What a lovely place. The staff were delightful, so professional and attentive. The chef, who I believe is also the owner came to speak to us and it was a lovely touch. Really yummy, Great food, great place.... More

Hechizo is one of those restaurants that you wish to find when on vacation and out of your usual hood and selection of great restaurants. This place is truly great and it easily matches any of the 1-star Michelin restaurants that I have visited in the US. Beautiful venue. Personal service and a high level kitchen lead by the owner...

We had our 5-course christmas dinner at Hechizo and can just say: everything was just great. I asked if it is possible to have in state of the desert (my wife had it and it was great) just a little piece of cheese. No problem and I got two wonderful cheeses. I recommend everybody who wants to spend a relaxed,... More

We had he most wonderful evening at Hechizo. Arrived before it opened but they offered to open early for us, which was a very kind gesture. In the end we went next door for drinks and came back. The setting overlooking the ocean was beautiful. We had the tasting menu and everything was impeccable. Service was excellent. We will definitely... More

We walked along the beach to reach Hechizo. The restaurant is perched on the quiet end of the beach. The dining room is very pleasant with a large fish tank for the main decor. The chef greeted all the customers personally and the rest of the staff was fantastic. The food was good. The snapper was particularly good. The almond... More

We went to Hechizo in May 2014 after years of missing their open dates. The experience, from the ambience to the food to the service was impeccable. Chef and co-owner Stefan Schober visited our table more than once and was friendly and very informative regarding each dish. This was for my wife and her friend's 50th B-day and it could... More
