“Nice Valentine's Day Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

We made reservatons for the Jellyfish restaurant for Valentine's day. We looked at the menu before booking and the prices seem reasonable enough and the menu was huge. However after arriving there on Valentine's Day we discovered they had a special inflated Valentine's day menu which only had a few items on it. I understand this happens often at restaurants even at home in Canada but that doen't mean I agree with it. We decided to stay dispite the inflated and limited selection. So they bring us out each a very nice complimentary drink and bread. We ordered the Tampura Shrimp (likely the best we've ever had anywhere) for our app. I ordered the Fillet Mingon And my fiancee ordered the lobster. The lobster was quite large and very nicely done but for 1900 paso or $48 it better be. My steak was 1200 paso or $30. Although my steak seemed very small maybe 6-7 ounces it was cooked perfectly and well seasoned. We decided to skip dessert due to the already inflated prices. Overall I'd say yes we would go back here but certainlly not on a special occation day such as Valentine's or mothers day.

“Wonderful atmosphere on a beautiful beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident. The atmosphere is amazing - right on a beautiful beach. We ate fresh seafood and had a wonderful time. They do not accept credit cards so I had to leave by taxi and go to the nearest atm to get cash.. but it was no problem.

“Nice but expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

The Jellyfish restaurant was very nice, nice atmosphere, a good place for Valentine Day, but very over rated. Food very expensive , $220us for four people. You can go to the beach and eat and drink all day and have very cold beer and great wings at the bars on the beach. Unfortunately The Beach Bar Restaurant and Sports Bar burnt down a few days ago, new one will open next week, great wings and nice people, stay all day, eat and drink for four 80us.

“It was good but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

There was a wedding on the beach at the restaurant so that made the dining experience very nice. We ate dinner there, it was dark so we didn't really see the ocean but imagine the view at lunch would be great. Food was ok.

“Saved by the Jellyfish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

If you are tired of the same old same old bland buffet food of the Barcelo make the walk down the beach to the authentic tastes of the Jellyfish. Really fresh and seriously tasty food but bring your wallet - the prices are big just like the portions
