El Lago restaurant has an excellent atmosphete, a great view, a winderful menu, a great & honestly priced wine list, and very attentive service. Unfortunately for the place, the captain judges the service you deserve. by your looks. We did not deserve the priper wine glasses because we were not formaly attited. The waiters have a better feeling and attitude than their boss.

Enjoy your meal, and give a hardtime to the captain.

The price is not cheap, but its right.

This place is really expensive for the regular food they serve. If you visit El Lago, visit it for the view. It's awesome. Specially in a clear sunset. So you enjoy both settings: the daylight and the night with the color-lighted fountain in the middle of the lake. Make a reservation if you are visiting during the sunset, specially on weekends. It's a really romantic place to be.

I've visited this place in a dinner with my girlfriend; and on another time, in a private event. The difference is huge, the seafood in the private event was superb. While the other was plain regular restaurant food in an splurge setting.
