“Not to our expectations”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay in Copamarina resort as it was highly reccomended. The service was terrible, they need to definitely train they staff. The service was slow overall,the first night our wine took forever to reach our table and the waiters were kind of 'lost'. Food was less than average.

“Yummy food in a quiet atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

My boyfriend and I enjoyed our quiet dinner at Alexandra. We were staying at the Copamarina resort and decided to treat ourselves to the reservations only restaurant one night. The restaurant was empty, so I'm not sure why reservations are required. The service was excellent (we were the only people there), but the staff was friendly and helpful with recommendations. They kept our wine glasses full and promptly delivered us our appetizer (chilis three ways) and gave us enough time to enjoy the food before sending out the entrees (lobster thermidor and shrimp in garlic sauce with vegetables). Both dishes were fresh and flavorful. The portions were generous so we declined dessert, but the options looked tasty. I would definitely recommend a visit to this more upscale restaurant.

“Try the handmade ice cream!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

We ate here twice during our stay in Guanica (at Copamarina). The simple churrasco is quite tasty. My husband's salmon was well prepared. They will try to make you something for your tastes - all we had to do was ask and the waiter would ask a few questions about our likes and then decide for us. I like to do that in new places - and they stepped right up. It was fun.

But the outstanding item was the handmade ice creams! We tried coffee, coconut, and a berry sorbet on different occasions. All were really very good and a fabulous treat - I don't get handchurned ice cream very often!

The service was excellent and the food was wonderful. The restaurant is beautiful and romantic in the evening with window tables over looking the sea.
