I must admit I had no prior knowledge of Café Laurent, until the concierge at Iberostar Parque Central recommended this restaurant. With some trepidation, as I always like to “check-out” places with Trip Advisor first, we were whisked away by cab to the Café. Upon arrival, I noticed we were in front of a modest apartment building of 5 or 6 floors. I looked at the cabbie, and asked him if he got the address right? He said, “Yes”, and then said to us, “Look up!”. Well, we did and saw the billowing curtains clearly showing us we were indeed at the right location.
So up we went, and up…until we arrived on the correct floor, and were welcomed into Café Laurent. All of my prior concerns evaporated, as we were escorted to a delightful table near the side of the Café facing Malecon. What a beautiful view! Menus arrived swiftly, and in short order we were all enjoying delicious, and reasonably priced, Pina Coladas and Mojitos! Salut!
Appetizers and mains arrived quickly as well, were fresh, well prepared and a pleasure to see, photograph and eat! My seafood grill was fresh, delicious and was prepared with a wonderful assortment of crab, mussels, clams, prawns, etc. Very flavorful and artfully constructed! Not to be outdone was dessert, where the chef created tasty, and eye pleasing delights! Service was attentive, but not obtrusive, and menus were easily read in English and Spanish.
The price of our feast was very reasonable for four people. Great view, great food, excellent service. We could not have asked for more! Gracias Café Laurent y Salut!
