Pili and Mon's kitchen is not to be missed. Even though the place gets packed at night with regulars, you will feel as though you are the only person there. Thats the kind of attention Pili gives to her customers. There is an awesome calm yet fun vibe that starts with the energy in the kitchen and ends with the incredible food that is put out on every plate. Portions are generous and everything is delicious and made with love. It comes through in the food! Salads are great (fabulous dark organic greens) and vegetarians have many options here to chose from. Every week there is at least one new special depending on what is available. An absolute treat! Do NOT MISS this. You will want to go back for more!!!

Went there last night per suggestion and the place is truly amazing. First they will send a truck to pick you up at your hotel for $10 round trip. They drive you to this beautiful open air restaurant in the jungle with dim warm lighting, a sweet flower mural on the only wall you see, with a mix of Latin, French, and groove filled music serenading you. The sangria was to die for, along with the variety of buschettas and organic salad that had an obviously home made warm honey dressing. Pili then informs us they are out of propane and cooking the main dishes were not an option any longer. For us this couldn't have been any better news. We were already full from the appetizers of garlic, tomoatos eggplant, deliciousness and it reminded us that we are at the beach escaping all the pressures and expectations of home. Pili was more than apologetic and very friendly, she brought us a slice of her cheese cake that she bakes during here midnight sessions of inspiration. A perfect end to the night! Highly recommended needless to say.
