We enjoyed our dinner for 2 on Saturday night. The service was great, and attention to COVID was very good as well. We enjoyed the table-side caesar salad and octopus carpaccio as apps, then we spilt a rib eye steak (flavorful but teeny bit tough), grilled veggies and a baked potato. All was good. Our drinks and wine were great as well. In general, a very nice place, I would go back and I would recommend.

Do not miss this dining experience! 100USD for the best dining experience we've had in a long time. Melt in your mouth steaks, generous shareable sides & salads. Above par service in a relaxing beautiful space. Exquisite.

Dinner for our 55th wedding anniversary. Seated in a quiet area as requested. Service, food and wine were all outstanding and even were treated to a great dessert for the occasion. Definitely a go to on every trip.

Been here several times,never disappoints. Table side Cesar salad, tenderloin for 2, potato soufflé, table side coffee Frances, and cheesecake for dessert. Great service from everyone including Abel!
If you are staying at Westin Lagunamar, this is a no-brainer. 10% discount! Short walk from resort.
Where was the Cesar Salad invented? We are having a discussion at the pool. Nothing else to do.

Excelente atención de meseros y capitán Gerardo Gamboa creo que se llama
Muy buenas medidas de seguridad por COVID
La ensalada cesar le falta sabor y la empanada de carne Tenía muy poca carne y predominaba chile morron con huevo cocido. No me gusto nada la combinación
La carne era un filete muy bueno
El flan delicioso
Gracias

Go to Harry’s!
Ribeye Steak & Filet were so fatty.
Impossible to cut without sawing at it and it.
We sent one back but the next filet was the same.
For being cooked on a grill , it had no seasoning at all, or flavor.
Best thing was the Empanadas for an appetizer.
We should have stopped there.

First time and a great time! The food was excellent. The Churrasco was generous and tender, the way it's supposed to be. Tenderloin was butter soft. Empanadas and fondue didn't disappoint. The specialty potatoes unique as well as tasty. And the flambe for dessert exquisite including the time our server, Cesar or German (they didn't write his name on our ticket) and the care he put into its preparation was unequal! Top rated service all around! One of the best dining experiences I have had anywhere and I have had a few. Recommend and repeat, with your eyes closed!
