“OK, if you don't want to leave the property”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

After reading the reviews regarding the restaurants at the El Con, we knew we didn't want to waste time nor money at any of them. Our first night in, we were tired and really didn't feel like leaving the property so Bella Vista seemed to be the lesser of the evils.
We had mojitos and appetizers. The drinks were good, but took a while to arrive. If you know you want more than one, it's better to go ahead an order the second round when the first ones are delivered. The appetizers were ok, but nothing special. It's a great place if you just need something to eat and quality/service doesn't matter. Just don't go there is you are on any type of time constraint. Service was very slow even though there were only a few people eating or drinking there.

“Great view for lunch”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Try the plantain cups filled with seasoned fried beef! It overlooks the Caribbean Sea and is a great place for lunch.

“Slow service”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Very slow service. It took about 40 minutes just to get our drinks. The food was good--we all loved the "fried pork chunks." It took forever for the server to take our order. We also waited a long time to get our check.

Breakfast was included in our room. We were very pleased with the quality selection and service. The view is a great start to the day. Made to order eggs and omelets. Quick easy and good.

“so-so breakfast buffet”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

The breakfast buffet here is average for a big resort. Not a lot of variety, and they offer exactly the same buffet items day after day after day. We did enjoy the Mexican dinner buffet they offered one night (not a huge buffet in terms of variety, but all of the food was fresh and very tasty).
