We love this restaurant and come here fairly regularly. The guacamole sampler and ceviche are awesome but it is easy to get so filled up on appetizers that you don't leave room for main course much less their wonderful desserts. Best of all is the...More

I stayed at this resort for work, so we dined here one evening. We had a pre-set menu. The service was quick and helpful, food was as mentioned on the menu, the BEST was the dessert, fresh, warm churros with three different dipping sauces! Lovely!

Love the food at this restaurant! The guacamole is amazing and it's hard to stop eating, but make sure you leave room for your meal!

In my opinion, fine dining and Mexican food are mutually exclusive. This restaurant is about as close as you get, but I still felt like I was paying $40 for a Chi-Chi's entree.
