Location is beautiful, you can choose to sit outside with a lakeside view or indoor with a cool setup. Food is very good, big portions. Evenings are generally packed so you might have to wait for a few, but overall you end up content.

While staying at the Marriott, lake front, Guapos is just a few steps from the hotel. I ate lunch and dinner here and each meal was fabulous. A definite "must try".

Tasty food, fun ambiance. Rio always offers a nice view and this restaurant sits on a great spot next to the movie theater. Our kids love it too. The enchiladas are to die for. Good tamal as well.

Not only is this my favorite Catina, but their customer service is Always on point. When you have to ask for service, then it's usually already too late...thats definitely not the case here. This is my all time area "goto" restaurant. These folks get it right...consistantly. oh, and the food....muy bueno!! :-)
