“Food was good but cold”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2013

This is the Marriott's "fancy" restaurant in the evening. The food is updated Mexican. I had the enchilada special. It was tasty, but 1) the waiter couldn't explain the options to me in English and 2) my rice and beans came out cold.

“Excellent and diverse breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2013

We had breakfast included in our room rate. (Or not included it would have been 55 pesos for two people) We could pick some off the menu or chose the buffet. We chose the buffet. There was an eggs station where you could get eggs any way you want. Or you could have pancake and waffles. There was also a cooking station devoted to Mexican dishes. The pastries were diverse, fresh and flaky. Orange and Beet Juice was one of the many unique offerings.

“bountiful buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2013

casa's largest restaurant..have only had their buffet breakfast...much to choose from..asian, mexican, italian...great eggs, bakery, fruits...more food than needed. Good service and dining inside or outside...if dining for lunch, probably too warm to dine outdoors...they don't seem to have many folks dining at lunch or in the evening...we've never tried it out except for breakfast

“La Estancia Tampiqueno, Yummmm and great Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

First of all the brunch is INCREDIBLE. Amazing continental, Mexican and Japanese options with incredible selection of fruits and juices and great service.

For dinner this is an overlooked gem in a beautiful setting as it is viewed as the breakfast place for The Marriott. The food is excellent the service is great.
