I heard about Pablo (chef at Laguma Mar Hotel Restaurant) from two separate sources in Samara and some other non-descript town - both sources said that I had to eat here. The irony is that I was staying at the hotel and leaving to eat elsewhere! On my last night I ate here with my son and was blown away.... More

This restaurant was recommended to us with rave reviews so we decided to try it for lunch. We discovered why it is so known on the peninsula. It is part of a hotel that looked very nice. Our food was fabulous. We had shrimp ravioli and a fish fillet. Both were excellent. I ate yucca for the first time and... More

I visited Laguna Mar with my family. The service was great and the food was delicious. We had a tuna carpaccio and ceviche as starters. As main courses we had the specials: eggplant lasagna and tuna teriyaki. The dessert sampler was also fantastic! I can't wait to come back.

Now we have eaten in some world famous restaurants so when I say the fish soup here was one of the best dishes I have ever had it is measured against the best.

This was a wise decision. It turned out that not only is Pablo a really nice guy, he is also an excellent chef. We were 4... More
