Dinner at Tramonto the final evening of our stay at the Grand Mayan was a very pleasant and satisfying conclusion to a fun vacation. The menu features several steakhouse options, but the focus is decidedly Italian and that's the way we ordered.
We were in a celebratory mood -- our two ladies were near the end of a 2-week "birthday festival" -- so drinks (Chivas, Tanqueray and margaritas) started the feast, with a lovely Italian pinot gris accompanying our entrees. An assortment of rolls, bread and breadsticks provided savory bites to go with our cocktails.
We ordered different salads, both fresh and tasty, to whet our appetites: One featured greens, artichokes, Portobello mushrooms and freshly grated parmesan. The other, my favorite, topped arugula and spinach with gorgonzola, wine-poached pears and candied pecans. Entrees for the four of us included a rich pasta carbonara, a gigantic slab of lasagna, fettucine with shrimp and mushrooms, and bacon-wrapped shrimp with brown butter risotto and saffron sauce, and a side of asparagus with béarnaise sauce. We were pretty stuffed after all that food, but still managed a gallant effort with desserts -- a trio of crème brulee, profiteroles and macaroons.
Despite what other reviewers have said, we found the food to be very good and the service excellent as well. The cost was also reasonable for what was a lovely experience. The tab for Mrs. OJ and myself was about $135 (we paid for the bottle of wine and that and drinks were almost half the bill).
If we stay at the Grand Mayan sometime in the future, we'd certainly return to Tramonto for a nice dinner.

We stay at the Grand Mayan in Nuevo Vallarta once a year. We love the Grand Mayan.
They should close down Tramonto !!!!!
We keep making the mistake of giving them one more try. Every time we do, we walk away disappointed. I promise I will never go back again. It has finally sunk in that they just can't do justice to Italian food. Yuck !!!!!

Food was excellent. Service was less than average. Atmosphere was sterile. The staff was not friendly, nor welcoming. We would not return based on the lack of service, poor staff. Over priced based on poor staff!

This is a restaurant within the Mayan Palace with very nice ambience but we found the menu unexciting and the veal that we ordered dry and tough to cut and chew. The service was good but no outstanding.
