On the recommendation of several, we went to Cuale Paradie this week. After walking 45 minutes, we arrived a little after noon, the opening time advertised on their website. Only a single employee was apparent. She told us somebody would be arriving to help us...More

At the suggestion of a friend, we dined at Cuale Paradise. Wow, can’t say enough good things about it. Depending on the season, know that it gets chilly! We were told this and were thankful we had light jackets. It is a remarkable setting. Great...More

We visited last night for dinner - each person ordered a different entree and generally the food was nothing special (and the marlin enchiladas were terrible - they were basically untouched) and took a terribly long time to arrive. The drinks were good and the...More

This place is great. Yes a little hard to find. From the main road look for a white Canopy River sign pointing east (the only way you can turn off at that point). It is between the 2 tunnels on the main road. I think...More

Be prepared to have your taxi take you at the end on a dirt road, but it's worth it. Food, service and prices are good, but the location is really wonderful.

Great location, casual and relaxing. Food is good but not extraordinary (ordered coconut shrimp and Marlin enchiladas). Drinks are potent. A bit expensive compared to similar restaurants. Servers are friendly. Good place to spend a lazy afternoon. Best of all, they're pet friendly.

We were there in June. Didn't notice mosquitos but we put spray on in the evening. I would contact them directly about music. The night we were there (Wed June 20) no one else was there around 6pm and there was none.

When you get there they will provide the menu. I do not think it's online anywhere but their menu is in English and Spanish and there prices are very reasonable. They also have a wide variety of food.
