“Best restaurant around”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Food by French chef is outstanding, fresh, local with a beautiful creative twist. This guy has clearly a big talent. We were so happy to go there, almost every day and try everything. The level of cuisine is clearly 'higher' than anywhere else around, and when I say that, I do not mean posh, trendy or hip. I mean just really really good. His respect for traditional mexican food is undeniable but he adds his personal creative touch, for fresh, unique, modern feel.
The service is flawless and the atmosphere really great. They have themes, in a classy way, you can go there every day and find something new. Tacos day, pizza, music, never in a tacky way. A romantic evening there with candles and breeze, or a fresh lunch before going surfing is just the perfect treat. We wish them a lot of success, it is so deserved. The chef and his wife always had a kind word for us as we are French as well, they care about their business and customers. Super experience.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We really wanted to like this restaurant but were disappointed. We happened to be there for happy hour and hubby got the 2 for 1 and I opted for the Strawberry Margarita-I'm a light weight and had not eaten since breakfast and normally I need to eat when I have a Margarita but not in this case. I didn't feel a thing after drinking what seemed like a virgin Strawberry Margarita, it was more like a smoothy. Tequila is not that expensive people, we are in Mexico. We decided to dine somewhere else that night after having our drinks. However, the next day, we decided to try them for burgers at lunch time since it was conveniently close to the hotel we were staying at. Big Mistake. Burgers were small and again-beef is not that expensive here in Mexico and it's pretty good beef too. Burgers were small and I ordered Ice Tea, they charged me 45 pesos ($3.50). Well I'm ok with that if there are free refills-it's just a tea bag right? I made the mistake of ordering a second and they charged for EACH ice tea. There are other places to eat and found one we especially liked but will review that separately.

“Gourmet and Delicious”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Chef Jean-Pascal creates gourmet, simple delights in his beach-view restaurant. Beautiful salads (yes, salads in Mexico) topped with fresh grilled shrimp with his French mustard vinaigrette, wood-fire roasted pork ribs that melt in your mouth, fresh fish prepared any way you like, friendly, English-speaking (or Spanish if you like trying out the local language) waitstaff, the coldest beer around. They even have ice that's safe to drink, limes that are safe to squeeze in your beer or over your tacos, wine if you'd rather take a break from cerveza. But don't expect to waltz in at 4pm and expect to get a table! This place fills with reservations early.

“good food in a beautiful place”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Juan Pascal, the chef, and his staff make you feel very welcome as you enjoy whatever you decide to order. The menu has something everyone will enjoy. Besides everything from wood fired pizza to seafood and steak there are also daily specials to tempt you. Set in a garden by the sea wonderful ocean and sunset views add to the enjoyment of your meal. One of Troncones nicest restaurants Jardin del Eden is a DO NOT MISS!

“Wonderful fresh food”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

We ate at Jardin del Eden a number of times during our two week stay in Troncones. The food was always really fresh and delicious. We particularly enjoyed the chicken tostadas, grilled fish and grilled flank steak. The chef was really friendly and so were all the other staff. A perfect spot for a tasty lunch or a romantic dinner overlooking the beach.
