“beautiful setting; extremely expensive, mediocre food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

You should skip this restaurant. It was extremely expensive and the food was very, very mediocre. The setting, however, is spectacular -- beautiful sunset.

“The service is average and so is the food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

When we were there, there were two other couple in the restaurant, and there a couple food servers standing around with nothing to do. It took forever to get our food and our check. The food was average

“Wonderful Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2012

My husband and I had brunch at El Set this morning. For $110 pesos ($9 US) there were more food choices than you can imagine. Every Mexican breakfast dish you have ever heard of plus an excellent omelet station with your omelet made to order. There were also delicious pastries, yougurt with all the toppings and trays of fresh fruit. Absolutely a "must return".
