“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Bahia Serena was surprisingly elegant. I expected a beach joint, but its a lovely restaurant for dinner. We had ravioli, baked chicken, and gnocchi and everyone loved their dishes. This place was recommended to us by our boat tour guide as her favorite place, and we see why. It's a local place with good food and ambience.

Cute beach, very relaxing and many locals. Bit noisy because next to street but fishing behind the rocks on the right possible.

“Our favorite regular restaurant in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

For friendly and efficient service, warm atmosphere, a sampling of the local crowd, very good (and abundant!) food and an unbeatable view of the lake and the mountains beyond it, Bahía Serena is the place my wife and I go to again and again.

Special praises for the bife ancho a la pimienta, the crepe de pollo al curry and especially - wow! - the bomba: hot fondant chocolat cake, vanilla ice-cream and red berries sauce.

(The place is always crowded - be sure to call in reserving a table before you go, especially at dinner time.)
