Fabulous setting in multiple gardens on site. Romantic lighting. Service wonderful. Prix Fixe Menu choices good for entrees. You can choose 3 or 5 courses with the difference only $10.00 so everyone at our table of 6 chose the 5 courses.
Appetizers very small portions. Examples: One Scallop nicely served, or three crab cakes shaped like large mushrooms, or two lettuce leaves with tiny pieces of filet steak well done over shredded cukes and onions I think plus two others and the soup choices were a lukewarm tortilla soup or a thin watery liquid soup of mint and cucumber- both choices were left 3/4 full at every ones place. Salad choice was either small pieces of watermelon, smaller pieces (chopped) of pineapple with a 1/2 tsp. of cheese and a request for no salt as offered or a small watercress salad. The entrees were all well received and plates left empty. Two ordered the filet, two ordered the plank salmon, two ordered the short ribs Meats came with mashed potatoes or the fish with pink rice.
Dessert was disappointing. Everyone got a small three sectioned plate with one bite of a delicious chocolate brownie, one bite of panna cotta (no one ate it after a small taste on a fork) and one other half teaspoon of an uneventful bite. As we were celebrating two birthdays and one anniversary we had sparklers inserted in the desserts. So if the soups were better, the desserts better and the salads better it would have been a much better meal for the $55.00 each paid. The wines were fabulous and their list is excellent. There was one entree offered for those not eating dairy or meat and was a vegetable dish with eggplant, tomatoes, etc.
Again, the setting is memorable, sitting outside when it is 70 degrees in the evening with little lights and huge areas of tall bamboo stalks and leaves creating small intimate areas among the tables on the side and back of the main restaurant makes
for a lovely memory.
