“Very high end restaurant for La Cruz”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

This is billed as a Mediterranean restaurant. There are some Mediterranean dishes but mostly just superb food with great presentation. It's an open air restaurant (meaning inside but open ) so no air conditioning but was still pleasant. Pretty high end for what you expect in the tiny town of La Cruz but not too expensive and excellent food

“There are two ways to eat in La Cruz, and this is one”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

There is low end eating like Tacos on the Street, which I highly recommend.

And then there is this.

While much more expensive that many other options, this food is worth it if you can afford it. A party of 6 and everything we had was outstanding. From the toasted bruschetta, the beet & apple salad, the exquisite raviolis, the fresh fish, the grilled shrimp to the indescribably delicious desserts, there was not a single complaint at this table.

The service was outstanding and without a hitch.

My only complaint would be the wine list. It is limited and there really are no inexpensive options.

In La Cruz, you can spend too much money and not get what you paid for, but this is not one of those places.

Highly recommended.

“Best in La Cruz.”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Fantastic meal. Servers speak excellent english. Superb food with a wonderful presentation in a unique setting. No air conditioning. I recommend you go after dark. The only "fine dining" in La Cruz.

“Big Splurge for the local”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Wonderful service. I had asked for my pasta to have a different sauce than was offered and I was readily accommodated. The food was delicious and the guitar trio, especially when playing the too few flamenco selections was lovely. The only reason I am giving this a 4 is the price. For visitors to our country, this is average but for many living on the Mexican peso, $17 for an entree is a bit much.

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

This was our first stop and maybe the best. The red snapper was great and the wait staff was friendly and attentive.
