We visited on our last night. The food was amazing. I got the lobster and shrimp risotto and my husband had the scallops and tuna. One of our best meals. The Manager greeted us and brought us free dessert . Wonderful restaurant-Pricey but worth it

Immediately upon opening the menu I asked the waiter if the Chef was French, to which he said "no, but the owner is." The menu is very French inspired, but old French (like 90's - Lobster Thermidore and Vol-au-Vents), which if you like that, its great, but current trends call for a more 'clean''fresh' menu approach. I feel that if... More

View is exceptional, go early around one hour before sunsetin order to have a table at sunset. Just order drinks. The food is not very good at all!!! You go here for the sunset which is spectacular, and a great phot opportunity.

Valentine's Day is also our anniversary, so we wanted someplace special to celebrate. We picked the Mirador restaurant at Villa Caletas because of the spectacular views and amazing sunset. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect evening. Pablo, the restaurant manager, reserved a table for 4 by the windows. He and his well trained staff pay close attention to... More

We arrived early to enjoy the sunset in the Villa Caletas amphitheater. This is a small curved theater built into the side of a cliff. You can order drinks and enjoy the stunning view. That alone was worth the ride there. Unfortunately, the dinner was a big disappointment. I ordered beef tenderloin, medium, that was over-cooked and tough. The waiter... More

Finding the restaurant is not easy. It is set back over a mile off the main road up a narrow winding and steep road, and there is no reference to the name, Mirador, until one arrives at the Villa Caletas Hotel, which is signposted at the main road. However, the trip is well worth it, particularly at sunset, which is... More

We sat outside and the setting was beautiful. Very romantic place where you anticipate a very good dinner. But the food was simply put.. bad. I would give it a three star because the sea bass ceviche was excellent, but can't overlook spoiled smelly shrimp in our lobster/shrimp bisque that had no lobster but plenty of spoiled shrimp. We had... More

The breathtaking views just added to the beautiful setting of the Mirador Terrace and the delicious dinner. I worked with Pilar Arevalo setting up the event. She was most gracious and quick to respond. The wait staff were very professional and handled our dinner with ease. Truly an elegant and memorable evening.

Went this week end with friends and family. It is like a no-brainer. Just the view is a all "WoW". Service was excellent as usual, food was great. We all went away with big smiles. What else can you asked for..: )
