“Best breakfast buffet ever”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Loved the fresh fruit and assortment of flavored spreads and breads. Every morning there were different hot entrees, but it was hard to pass up the cinnamon French toast for anything else.

“What a waste of time!!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

This was the worst dining experience! Loved tripadvisor for Wildfish...great food and service. Las Carnarias was awful. Took 45 min to get the cheese plate out. By then the kids already finished their chicken. Made the rest if the meal barely tolerable. The cheese plate was very simple with no real flavors.

After an hour, the entree never made it out. We dropped 20 bucks on the table and walked out.

“Elevated gastronomic experience”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

OK, I usually do not rave about a place for lunch, but this was special. The food was creative, beautifully plated, and delicious. Do not miss the melon gazpacho, which is poured table side. And it may sound silly, but I have been thinking about their beef tacos...yes, tacos!!...for days. And I am not particularly a taco person. Perhaps that is because this was unlike any taco I have had before. Tasty, light, fresh...the perfect bite. This lunch made me wish I would be in SA longer, so we could come back for dinner. Only small criticism would be that service was slow and less attentive than would be expected, given place this nice.

“One of our best restaurant experiences...ever.”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Every aspect of our experience with Las Canarias was excellent. The staff fulfilled our request to have a table by the window overlooking the riverwalk. Jorge was the man in charge of taking care of us and he was an amazing host. He was extremely knowledgeable about the food and professional and friendly without being obtrusive. The food was amazing. Every bite magic...and if you review my other reviews on TripAdvisor, I don't throw out superlatives lightly. Even when I wasn't too thrilled with the cucumber sorbet, Jorge immediately offered a replacement, which was wonderful (strawberry champagne sorbet). It was my wife's birthday so, without prompting, they brought a special extra dessert for her and sent the guitar player over for a birthday serenade. It was first class, yet relaxed. We were able to enjoy our time without hurry. This is an amazingly well run establishment in a beautiful location. Ask for Jorge...he's the best.
