Visited with my gf for dinner while staying at another hotel. Do recommend making a reservation because space is limited. Beautiful installations and good food make this the best dining option I've known in San Gerardo. Service is good and attentive. Would go again.

We had several delicious meals here. The chef was very creative. Breakfasts choices ranged from pancakes to bagels with smoked salmon, lunches were excellent and dinner meals were gourmet delights. The atmosphere is romantic especially at dinner time. All was perfect.
