Very nice restaurant, food is good. Bad part is we waited 1 hour between appetizers and entree with only 1 other table full. A bit $$$ but seabass was delicious

Hands down favorite place for south-of-the-border cuisine (which is really the name it deserves). If it weren't enough that the food is amazing and pretty quickly served, the decor is phenomenal. would reccomend.

Maybe we caught them on a bad day. They seemed short staffed as there seemed to be two servers for the whole restaurant. Took a long time to get order placed, a long time to get coffee and refills. Took 30 minutes to get an omelette and an order of French toast. The omelette was pancake-flat. The French toast's thick-sliced... More

One would thing a preset menu would be average at best but this meal was amazing. The lobster bisque was perfect, well seasoned, nice texture, and just the right amount of lobster. The Pear and Walnut salad was perfectly portioned dressed with a raspberry vinaigrette. The entre of filet mignon and jumbo shrimp scampi was cooked to perfection. The meat... More

We went here on date night for Valentine's day. It had high marks on Trip Advisor and deservedly so. The atmosphere was romantic, somewhat intimate. The food was excellent. It's inside a hotel and I was surprised that they served breakfast, lunch and dinner. Most places like that do not have as high a quality cuisine. Well worth the trip... More

My husband and I were guests of Castillo Real Hotel where this restaurant is located. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and chose La Cocina for its location (inside the hotel) and the top-rated reviews on trip advisor. We, of course, wanted fine dinning and thought this restaurant would be perfect. My expectations were high, so perhaps my review comes... More

Breakfast with cloth napkins! A classy breakfast. Eggs Benedict, breakfast sandwich and a breakfast burrito. All were great. My wife and I always have the eggs Benedict. The best on the island. You don't need to be a hotel guest.
