We went to the Palacio last night for the dinner buffet. When we arrived we were seated on the patio. It was fairly cool and breezy. We asked about being seated inside and they said all the tables there were reserved earlier.
There was one table where the people had just finished eating and had left just after we arrived. That table was never cleared off or reset.
We did have our dinner on the patio but I was cold the entire time. The food was good but they ran out of turkey around 8pm. We had arrived at 7:30 and the dinner was supposed to be open until 10pm. The fillet was a little tough but tasted ok. I will say the desserts were all good and the fruit and vegetables and salads were great.
I was disappointed that they did not take our request seriously and that they did not move us indoors as there was plenty of room. We left around 9pm so would not have affected anyone eating later.
Over all it was an unpleasant experience being cold but we had good company and most of the food was good. I would not recommend it for any big dinners but it might be OK for just an evening meal.
