This restaurant is play-acting at being a fine dining experience. The food was just average. There was a lot of pomp in the presentation that didn't compensate for the s-l-o-w service or quality of the food.

Good food, timing or service not a forte. Manager dressed as a waiter but with a Jacket. I wonder if it was really the manager?

It is located at the north end of this large city, but more than worth the drive from any hotel in town, unless of course you stay at its hotel. The dessert view day or night is majestic. I recommend you eat at its outside patio. It offers creative cocktails and one of the best mouthwatering steaks in the land.... More

Expensive but worth it!we sat inside but the view from the terrace is beautiful we got to see the sunset. We had a great time and enjoyed the restaurant very much. We went the next night to Proof for a casual dinner and... More

We ate at Talavera the last night of our stay. While the interior seating was elegant and definitely a "special" occassion feeling, we opted for the patio with a prime view of the mountain/terrain during sunset. The food was well done, albeit the menu was slightly limited imo. I appreciated that they went off menu to appease our daughter and... More

We brought friends to the restaurant during their visit. The restaurant is very quiet and is perfect for couples and intimate groups. The view is lovely outside on the patio. The service is very attentive. Everything we have tried from the menu has been excellent, and beautifully presented. I find the menu to be very limited though. If you are... More

This was an amazing venue for the wedding reception. The balcony for drinks overlooked the garden where the wedding was held. The food was amazing. It was such a beautiful night. Great service and top quality offerings.

Excellent restaurant, located in a resort some miles north of the city. The indoor dining area is very elegant. There is also dining on the balcony with a very nice view of the hotel yard. The food is very good. The service is somewhat formal. Expensive, as expected, but a very nice choice for a special event.

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Talavera. The "steakhouse" oriented theme is a bit lost on the beautiful scenery, but the quality of the food is not. We both enjoyed the lobster and corn bisque for starters. We each ordered steaks. My wife had a perfectly prepared filet while I had an equally perfect NY strip. We split a bottle of... More
