Sometimes you worry about eating in some country's you visit when your on a tour. But this was not one of them, very clean, very good food. The grounds around the restaurant was very clean and well kept. A great place for a bite to eat with friendly people.

The landscape and setting is gorgeous with great service, wines, cocktails and local rum. The chef came to our table and nicely recommended meals to each one of us. The food presentation and flavor is outstanding so repeat visits is a must.

This stop was included in our tour. It is on the second floor of the Mares Restaurant and they call it The Garden Restaurant. We had chicken with rice and fruit salad for dessert. You could go back as much as you wanted. I wish I had that chicken recipe. Something I had never tasted before. After, we had the opportunity to visit the gardens on the premises and also meet the well-known painter Rafy Vasquez in his house where you can appreciate some of his work.

The food is excellent and the setting is beautiful and very romantic but be prepared to spend 200Us or more for a couple with no wine.
