Best a la cartes at GBP

Leaving next month and wanted to know what the latest reviews are on the GBP restaurants

Been reviewing the menus at

www.bahia-gourmet.com/en/losrestaurantes.htm

Think I'm gaining weight just reading these

My husband and I really enjoy the gourmet restaurants - Don Pablo, Arlequin, and Le Gourmet. We also like PortoFino, one of the Italian restaurants..... the appetizer buffet is excellent, and they have a wonderful filet mignon in some kind of wine sauce that is delicious. And the tiramisu is fantastic as well! We also enjoy the Mexican restaurant Tequila - but for different reasons... they have a wonderful tomato-based soup and a chicken dish that is fantastic, and if you get the churros when they're hot out of they fryer - also the margaritas there are the best!

Enjoy your son's wedding - I hope they treat you well at the Bahia! We'll be back in the spring.

I'm hoping that our 4 favourites continue to be the best.

- Arlequin

- Don Pablo

- Le Gourmet

- Mikado

We will be there Oct 22 - 29 for our 3rd time. I will report upon our return.

VSD,

we did Gran Tortuga the beginning of last month. Needless to say they rolled us out. If you want more of a particular cut just ask for it. Also try the Pineapple with cinnamon sugar. It is mouthwatering.

VSD

If you go to Gran Tortuga, just try very hard to have just a small taste of each offering. Been there 4 times and have never made it thru the whole menu.

If something really appeals to you, you can have seconds or thirds.

I agree with Karl, the pineapple and cinnamon dessert is awesome.

Thank you Sundog for posting the link for the menu for the GBP.

Anyone knows anything about the Oriental Restaurant located at the Dona Isabel Ranch ?

Oriental has been closed for over 2 years - alas the menus are a bit dated but I haven't found anything newer

The El Charro is gone too I believe. Portofino has been added (in Coba).
