We were a party of six staying nearby at the Radisson. We had a variety of dishes and glasses of wine. We enjoyed the food and the service by the owner and her assistant waiter. Some of the dishes were different from Mediterrean dishes we have had in the US but they were tasty in their own way. We felt the prices were acceptable for us. It is a place we would return to and enjoy again.

we went in just looking for coffee and a pastry, but... ended up having a light dinner then dessert !

prices a bit steep, but the quality of food is an A+ and the ambiance is beautiful :)
Equally nice for a family or a romantic dinner. My mom and I sat outside in the patio.

Server was very friendly and helpful, knew the menu plus some history on the place. He always came to refill waters, ask how we were doing etc. Learned that the Wife (owner) is a chef who went to culinary school in France and they also grow a lot of their own herbs and spices in the garden :)

Salads for dinner, mine was a moorish dish kind of like couscous ~ i was pleasantly surprised by the flavor, was delicious!

and for dessert, we expected the portions to be small (as the salads were) so we got 2 to share between the 2 of us: Pistachio Flan & Chocolate Cake. The flan was scrumptious and very different from traditional flan (which my mom makes for every family get together) and the chocolate cake turned out to be a ginormous piece ! torte layers with a smooth chocolatelyness in the middle and a decadent chocolate ganache-type covering ~ we ended up having to take half of it to go
the coffee was also good

it's located in a very nice area of San Joe. Parking is not very good and opening hours are a little limited

If you like nice food, don't go to this place. The waiters are unbearable, the food is tasteless and tiny. I won't come back

Last week we had dinner at Cafe Moro. We were very impressed with the waiter, Harold, who bent over backwards to make our meal enjoyable. Three of us had the sea bass and it was excellent. The desert platter was very good! The pistachio flan was fabulous!
