We enjoyed dinner our first night as well several breakfasts in Restaurante El Sendero. The service could not have been any better and the food was delicious and very beautifully plated. If you stay here, you have to treat yourself to a meal here. You will savor every bite!

Dinner & Breakfast were fabulous. Coffee infused steak, fish & chicken dishes were fresh & creative in there use of herbs & vegetables sourced on property or bought local. Couldn't get enough of the homemade yogurt & granola!

This is, by far, the best restaurant in the San Ramon area. The food, the attention to detail is amazing!. The only negative thing I must mention (and I am not sure management can do anything about this) is the deplorable state of the 11 kilometer road leading to the resort from the main highway. Other than that is a... More

Morning, lunch and dinner were all terrific. After coming back from the states I'm still trying to recreate the "typical breakfast" I kept getting. Even as a pescatarian with pretty severe milk allergies there were some A+ options and I loved every single one of them. The dishes are so creative it's insane! I can't even begin to mention how...

We were not staying at the hotel but came for lunch. The restaurant was very clean and we were met by friendly staff. The view is great and service good. Our lunch was delicious! After lunch we took a walk on the trail and saw a rather large tarantula-kind of exciting! I would definitely recommend eating here!
