“My birthday celebration”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Daniel, I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had at your restaurant tonight. You made it a really special birthday celebration. It goes without saying but the food was so delicious and tasty. Very elegant and a real treat. But I also have to comment about how it just feels like a BIG HUG at your place. Completely taken care of from the moment you walk in the door. Our water glasses were always full along with our wine glasses. Very gracious wait staff.

“Delicious Paella”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

The restaurant is located just south of the Mega grocery store and took a little bit to find. It's located off the street in a courtyard with an art school.The Sunday special is Paella which was excellent. It came with a Caesar salad. We had 4 margueritas so the total bill came out to about $90. When we saw the price for the drinks, we thought they were a little on the high side (actually cost about as much as the dinner!). During dinner, a satellite American jazz music station was playing. Then a wonderful electric guitarist showed up to play popular tunes, playing his guitar as a flamenco guitarist would perform.

“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

We had a very nice time there. All this lanterns after sunset, art on the walls and live music give the place a romantic spirit. The food was very tasty. The waiters have problems with their English sometimes. But other than that everything was great. I would definitely recommend it.

“Lovely setting, excellent food”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We had dinner. For starters 3 of us had a Caesar salad (excellent), and I had the catch of the day (yellow tail) ceviche (excellent). For the main course 2 of us had the shrimp pasta (only 4 shrimp each but very well seasoned). Two of us had the catch of the day (super big yellow tail fillet) with mushrooms and spinach, and potatoes. A bottle of sauvignon blanc. Total before tip was 64 usd per person. Super service. Beautiful outdoor setting in a courtyard with a guitar player.

“Great place... if you bring mosquito repellent”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

We had a great time at the Villa Valentina... the place looks great surrounded by nice lanterns and an art school. The food is very good and the staff very attentive.
We had local vines... outstanding bottles. and plenty of good food.
The only problem at this place are the mosquitos.
So if you bring your repellent and you find the place, then you will have an unforgettable night :-)
