“Lovely setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

Really pretty setting, and the food was good.
Where the restaurant didn't meet our expectations was simply in regards to the service. It's "efficient" in that there are all sorts of people coming & going from your table to bring this or take that, but you don't seem to have one main person. Actually, we didn't feel like we saw the same person twice over the evening.
The restaurant markets itself at the higher end, and the food & prices would reflect that but, for us, part of the dining experience is the Server and the feeling you are being taken care of.
This felt more like a well oiled machine, where every employee had one purpose, and they had us in and out in just over an hour - no lingering aloud!

The place Is very Nice, but the manager is very rude. i saw him being very impolite with a Family, Just because kids would not like to eat in that restaurant. The Family got out.

“Very good, can have some improvements”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

I had reserved a table for 8 but when I arrived, there seemed to be no vacant table available. Sitting at the bar I was completely ignored by the bartender as well as at least half a dozen of waiters. OK, the place was full and all were busy attending guests, but my first impression was not a welcome one. (un)Fortunately two of my friends didn't make it and eventually the waiters managed to get two tables together so we could order about 30 minutes after reservation time. The choice of wines is limited but pretty good and not too over priced. The food (we all had red snapper) was delicious, but took almost an hour. But OK, as said, it was very busy that night. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. So apart from a lesser first impression it ended up a very pleasant evening.

“Seaside magic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2013

We had an amazing view from the waterfront (reservation needed). Our waiter was friendly and really cared about serving us as customers, so we were very impressed with the service. The food was amazing! The Red snapper was excellent, the Grouper filet was fantastic, and the lobster was delicious! They threw the remains of the lobster in the sea, where we could see 10 sea-snakes fight over the scraps. I highly recommend this place.

“Silence of the lamb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2013

You wouldn't think of eating lamb at a seafood restaurant but Perla Del Mar will make a believer of you. The lamb chops were delicious; my sister who ate the fried fish also wasn't complaining. In fact, she wasn't saying anything because she was too busy smacking her lips and destroying the fish on her plate.
