Carolina is a beautiful dining experience from the design of the space, to the great service, to the delicious food, we couldnt have asked for more. We also highly reccomend scheduling a private Tequila tasting with Alberto. It was so much fun and gave us a new respect for the liquor. Thank you Carolina!

Carolina is an interesting restaurant: two days a week they serve high cuisine French food, while four days a week they serve Mexican high cuisine. While the menu is limited it is delicious. Be prepared to dress more appropriate of a high-end restaurant as opposed to most of the restaurants which welcomes vacation attire (shorts, golf shirts, etc.).

Beautiful meal in a very stylish dinning room. We had the Mexican menu and we were not disappointed. Make sure to have dessert, the chocolate cake is amazing.

Chef Perez is incredibly talented and wowed us during two dinners. Our first night on our honeymoon, we ordered from the main menu (non-Mexican). The steak was AMAZING and we like to dine at the top restaurants wherever we go. Presentation, beautiful, my pasta and cocktail, delicious. That night the chef came out to meet us...and we saw the gourmet Mexican menu available that week. We said how much we love to taste the best the chef can offer and he created a personal tasting menu for us the next night where we got to sample every single item on the Mexican cuisine menu. Prepared beautifully and an amazing mix of high end gourmet with Mexican tradition. He also made us an AMAZING banana soufflé dessert. Did I mention he does party as well and was down two support cooks? The guy is incredibly talented and then spent over 30 minutes getting to know us. Turns out he's cooked at and learned from some of the top restaurants in Chicago that we love.

In a nutshell, this chef is top notch and not over priced. You'll get a killer meal from a great person who has a lot of passion for what he does.

Recently returned from our stay at the St. Regis Punta Mita. Had dinner our first night at Carolina and then had to return our last night for the fantastic experience. One of the only 4 diamond restaurants in Mexico, Caroline is a beautiful space with equally amazing food. Meeting Alberto and his flaming coffee is a MUST! Chef Alfredo Perez Gomez came out and visited with us each night, making our stay extra special. Because of my wife's dietary restrictions, he created an amazing off the menu dish. Really superb. We have eaten at some fantastic spots, but Caroline is near the top. A special place with special people.
