We suspected that the restaurant would offer a good service, given that it's part of probably the most expensive hotel in the area (Nayara), but it still surprised us. A top-notch service, well-trained personnel, not too-extensive menu, delicious signature cocktails - five stars all around. The food was well prepared and presented. We enjoyed the time at Altamira and will come back if we are ever passing through the area again.

Altamira was our favorite restaurant at Nayara. Everything was great! Their breakfast buffet is not as big as at larger resorts, but the quality was exceptional and may set the standard. We chose to dine from the menu, but the dinner buffets on two nights looked amazing. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming!

If buffet is your preference, this is the place - so many dishes to choose from, with much of the hot food cooked to order and delivered to your table.

Enjoyable meal. My wife and I split the beef cascade, outstanding. I loved the tortilla soup. Live music was a plus. Overall enjoyable meal.

We had wonderful service and food. The table side guacamole was amazing. The wine list was good. The steaks were delicious. It was a nice change from the ‘typical ‘ food.
