Not a fancy place, but a beautiful outdoor seating area on Mario and Ericka's porch. We are not foodies, but had to come experience Mario's after reading all the reviews on Trip Advisor. We called ahead to discuss our preferences. Told them I don't eat seafood and have only liked it one time in my life. Loved the first course of papaya ginger soup and crusty bread. Second course had a variety of flavors. I enjoyed the rolled lettuce with raspberry dressing. Hubby loved the rooster fish sashimi. Second course did have a needle fish cake which I ate and actually enjoyed. Way to go Mario, for getting me to eat seafood I liked for the 2nd time in my life!! They prepared 2 different main meals- mahi mahi for my husband and chicken for me- which we both found delicious. I am a light eater and it was too much food for me, so I brought 1/2 of my entrée home. I love my desserts and thoroughly enjoyed the homemade berry gelato with a yummy crusted ring around it. Mario is a very talented chef.
Conversation was great and it felt like we were dining at our friend's house. Great opportunity to find out about their way of life. We discovered things about the local culture that we may not have learned any other way. Felt very comfortable chatting with them after dinner.
