Stopped with a tour and received horrible, way over-salted food. Tasted like canned beans. We were over charged $3 each from price quoted by tour.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. We are SO GLAD we took her up on it, The restaurant is built into the side of a mountain, and several of the tables are overlooking the mountainside. They are open air. The food was fantastic but pricey. I had the scallops and they were delicious. The restaurant is very cozy and it is sprinkled here and there with film memorobilia. They have several old-tim cameras, on tripods, encased in plexiglass. If you don't go for the food, at least go and check it out!! You won't be disappointed.

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay. Saul is such a great, FUNNY waiter - he is honestly the reason we returned! The view is beautiful and the food is really really good. He remembered us, remembered what we had ordered the first time and comped our appetizer (stuff mushrooms wrapped in pastry - OMG!) The 2nd visit he talked us into the house "special" - lobster, JUMBO shrimp and sea bass for two. TO. DIE. FOR. Would DEFINITELY return to El Set in the future! If you go - ask for Saul and tell him the "nice lady from Denver" sent you! ;-)

Definitely, it's worth going to sit and enjoy a drink with the view. Staff is great. My last visit I had the whole place to myself for lunch. Stick to the basics when ordering your food and enjoy the view.
