“Grotto earns its rep”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

With plenty of good reviews at hand, we dined at the Grotto while staying at the San Luis Resport. Delightful ambiance at sunset, very good attention from our servers, and no pressure to hurry the experience. The shrimp scampi appetizer was beyond belief - a few of those would suffice for dinner (but put four shrimp, not three, for two to appetize on). Main courses did not disappoint, and an anniversary dessert pleasing. Recommended the Grotto to poolside friends the next day, and here.

We were welcomed by great staff that made us feel special.. The waiter could not be any better in explaining the different type of dishes that they serve. Environment was very nice & relaxing. I'll suggest this place any time for a great food..
