The breakfasts are great, eggs to order, fresh juice, bread and fruit. Had a dinner there which was langostino (nicely prepared) and lomo also very good. A little spendy $50 or so with two glasses of wine but worth a splurge.

A lovely lunch with great service and delicious food. We all enjoyed ourselves. The gentlemen servers were kind and elegant. The restaurant overlooks a lovely tropical garden with a rushing river in the distance.
