My wife and I were on our honeymoon for 10 days beginning 9-9-09. We are a "40 something" couple and had been to the NW part of Puerto Rico before. We had also seen the Horned Dorset Primavera online. We decided to treat ourselves on our one week anniversary, but could not make arrangements to go until the eighth day after our marriage.
We made 7p reservations and were invited to come watch the sunset from the veranda. We arrived early enough to see the gorgeous sunset and enjoyed bartender Tony's delicious rum drinks (I had the Barillito 3 Star - rocks and my lovely bride had a rum punch).
The chef sent down a cheese/apple plate while we finished our cocktails, and we were escorted upstairs to the dining room by Tony to find that we were the only guests, save a party of 6 in the private back room. We felt like royalty!
My wife ordered the carrot ginger soup with a grilled lobster entree and I had mussel/fish chowder with medallions of pork. Both the soups and the entrees were unbelievable!
We have both dined in fine establishments before, but the setting, the service, the intimacy and the food were without compare! Between Tony and our Maitre d', Enrique, our every need was taken care of. When asked if it was a special occasion, I told Enrique of our "anniversary" - we finished with a Grand Mariner souflee (just a BIT decadent!!) with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate around the edge of the plate.
While not everyone will be able to go to the Horned Dorset "privately", I can only imagine the same detailed service would be given to every guest of the restaurant, regardless of the number of diners.
We loved every aspect of the Horned Dorset Primavera and will return!
