Great ambiance, great service, however food was not as expected. Shrimp was raw, and also the lamb was undercooked. We send them back and they still charged us for them!!! This is not what you expect from a good restaurant. Definitely not wat this restaurant used to be.

Perfecto! The ambience alone is worth a trip here. Just beautiful and even though the garden is closed while we were there (which was a good thing since the clouds burst and poured on the roof-a very calming sound), we had a beautiful view of the garden area. The food was excellent as well and the violin player and pianist just wonderful. Favorite special place ever.

We had better tasting menus in Puerto Vallarta at a cheaper price point. The outdoor space looked amazing but we were indoors where it is very unremarkable. The service wasn't bad, but not super attentive either. The meal did have its highlights though, and they were very helpful with allergies.

Una excelente experiencia, lo único que estuvo un poco mal fue mi bebida ordené un old fashion me lo hicieron con bastante azúcar, después de avisar al personal vinieron se lo llevaron, pero regresaron con el mismo trajo. Porqué yo lo marqué con un contraseña, para ser un restaurante de 5 estrellas eso no se hace. Esta es mi Quinta ves que los visito y es primera ves qué pasa esto.
