10 for dinner went off splendidly. Great service, pretty good food at a very reasonable fare. Service great and we were pleased with selection, though I would not call the food 'real' Italian.

This restaurant is way too expensive for the food it serves. We went there to get lobster and even if the lobster in this part of mexico are smaller, the preparation left a lot to desire. This is not the lobster you are looking for.

We go here every time we visit, but they changed the menu and was not up to par. They also changed the staff and they were not very knowledgeable to the new menu.Very Disappointing.

We celebrated my wife birthday with our daughter, son-in-law and granddaughters in the restaurant. We did not have a reservation but within a few minutes we had our table by the marina. The food selection accommodated all our taste buds from grandparent (us), daughter, sos-in-law and our granddaughters. The waiters were friendly as usual, answered all our questions including food...

We ate here three times during our stay at Paradise resort. It specializes in Italian food and seafood. The salmon and sea bass were both good -- make sure to tell them not to overcook it. Fettucine Alfredo and lasagna were good. Overlooks marina with indoor and outdoor seating. Pleasant staff.

We ate 3 dinners here, all wonderful, great service, reasonable. We are not big eaters and they were gracious regarding split dinners. The salads they served were always crisp with baby roasted veggies and a great dressing, not at all oily

We had a group of 6 for dinner and enjoyed a lovely evening with excellent service, good food, and a pleasant view. I had the filet - was it the best steak I ever had? No, but it was a delicious dinner. Excellent salad, full meal, very good strawberry gelato. We had 3 bottles of an excellent Pinot Grigio too.... More

Cold pasta (when it should have been hot), raw lobster (which had to be returned to the kitchen), overcooked salmon (which was so dry that even a margarita didn't help!)...what could be worse? The management caring little about these inconveniences and offering not so much as a drink to compensate. The couple at the table next to ours had the... More
