My two favorite spots for a romantic dinner are Kapi Kapi and the Sunspot Grill at Hotel Makanda.....great food and service at both.....quiet and romantic......Sunspot Grill is a more unique spot.....Kapi Kapi is more of a traditional restaurant.

I agree with Dave. Most private with adults only and served poolside is Hotel Makanda, Kapi Kapi is also quite good, and you might also like La Luna at Gaia or Claro Que Si at Hotel Si Como No.. Issimo is pretty good, but in my opinions the others above are better. Enjoy!
