Chef Eric De Maeyer is the master craftsman behind Mb Restaurant in the Live Aqua hotel, where I recently vacationed with two of my best friends. Shortly after our arrival on March 26, 2014, we had the opportunity to meet Chef Eric who most graciously invited us to be his guests at Mb that coming Friday evening. When we arrived at the appointed time, we were enthusiastically greeted by Chef Eric and ushered to our table, which was located adjacent to the front of the kitchen. Chef Eric then introduced us to Eli and Oswaldo, and instructed them to take wonderful care of us which they did! Even before we had one bite of food, we felt that the the service and attention of the Chef and the staff to guests was amazing. Eli brought over delightful appetizers, and Oswaldo was right behind with mango cocktails for each of us and freshly-baked bread. Chef Eric had prepared for us a fabulous meal of filet mignon and lobster, with mushrooms and potato which was to die for! Eli recommended perfect wine pairings to accompany our meal, and Oswaldo was incredibly attentive to us. We really felt like movie stars! Our dessert was a chocolate heaven, and could have been photographed for hanging in an art gallery! Our heartfelt thanks to Chef Eric, Eli and Oswaldo for making us feel so special and spoiling us so! :) We loved every minute of it. After that evening, we returned two additional times to enjoy Chef Eric's fabulous Habanero Cream Soup, and sample several of the other entrees. Each dish was so delectable and so artfully decorated with edible garnishes, that we couldn't help ourselves and we took pictures of each plate as it arrived. Complete food porn! Great big kudos to Chef Eric and his wonderful staff, including Eli and Oswaldo, for making such lovely and memorable evenings for us. We will definitely return to this wonderful restaurant and hotel, and look forward to seeing these lovely people.
