Nine of us made a 5 pm reservation to this highly recommended restaurant. Our two cars were valet parked for free ( we added a $5 tip for each car) . The time was recommended so we could see the amazing sunset at our outdoor table overlooking the spectacular view of the city and Arcos. The restaurant is located a few miles out if town and being perched up high on the cliff right above the ocean, one gets to experience a breathtaking view. It is very romantic setting, however , come dresses with an outer jacket, as the wind can really kick up, and when the sun goes down it can get chilly. However, the restaurant has blankets for all who need them.
Our waiter, Irving was great, attending our every need. The service was first class.
Now about our food.
The menu is Italian in style and small with no more than six choices for appetizers, pasta, seafood or meats in each category. We ordered a variety of choices and they were all played beautifully and tasted delicious. The portions are small, especially the ravioli. The salads were very fresh and crisp. The prices for the food are in the medium to medium high range , but not over the top by any means. The entrees were from $17 to about $40. Because we were outside and the trip from the kitchen to our table was close to. 200 feet, our meals weren't super hot, but we understood.
Some nice touches:
The chef had delicious bread brought to the table and before the first course was a complimentary taste of gazpacho in an elegant cup! During dessert he had delivered, a small tray of little finger treats that were to die for.
The dessert list was small and we enjoyed the Italian treats.
The wine list is fairly large, however the prices are high, with the lowest bottle being about $38 and up to hundreds per, if you want to spend that much.
In conclusion, this is Avery fine restaurant and is highly recommended. The bill was lower than eating in a high end place at home but the view was world class.
Brava Mona Lisa!!!
