We had strong margaritas on the rooftop deck while we watched the sunset. Perfect spot. We did not have dinner here so can’t tell you if the food is good. Can confirm that the view is exceptional and a very picture worthy spot.

Chez Elena won't break the bank. It's worth every penny for food and view from roof.

They are open weekends and most or all weekdays. 2:1 dinners on Tuesday and Thursday as I recall. You can email them directly at the hotel that is below the Chez Elena Restaurant: fourwinds AT cuatrovientos POINT com
