While staying at the Don CeSar, we had dinner at their noted restaurant. We were not disappointed. The menu is extensive and offers many choices. My wife selected the tile fish which she thought was excellent. I had a coffee rubbed filet.

The dinners were wonderfully served. The staff in the restaurant is top notch.

The dinner concluded with a flaming creme brûlée.

The evening was very enjoyable

We ate at Maritana during a stay at Don CeSar. The restaurant is small but very pretty, with fish tanks lining many of the walls.

The service was good and the wine selection as well. The dishes, though, in some cases were lacking in flavor. The octopus appetizer was a highlight. However the tuna sashimi appetizer was somewhat flavorless. My wife had the duck, which sounded like it would be sweet, with peaches but it was far from sweet. It wasn't bad but the flavor was somewhat disappointing. I had a special that was some fish (forget the kind) over rice. It also lacked much in flavor.

As desert lovers, we were also disappointed in the very limited desert offerings.

Overall, Maritana was fine but given the very high end prices, you'd expect more.

The food was excellent, but the real stand-out was the service. The waiters tag/teamed to ensure every table had consistently great service, and made us feel really special. Great experience all around!

While at our weekend stay at the Don Cesar we dined 2 nights in a row. Both nights were memorable.The first night I tried the pork belly to start and the seared sea-bass afterwards, (the truffle pomp frites I added later out of curiosity and gluttony. I stole some of the confit duck leg and also some sous vide octopus.The second night I tried the coffee rubbed filet.
The blanco cosmo and the new old fashion are a must pre dinner. Any wine on the menu is phenomenal , the server will not stir you wrong in choosing the best pairings for your dinner.
