How exciting to discover a exclusive amazingly wonderful restaurant. Located in a exclusive gated community . First, staff - they made us feel like we were the most important regular guests, when this was our first visit. Second - menu, I want to try everything ! We shared all the Dim Sum - perfect . I had lobster Risotto- omg lobster a large tender portion. Risotto - just perfecto. My wife had the Peking Duck Tacos - sublime. Desert - chocolate cake yum. The ice Creme sandwich like none seen before . Delicious. Carol the Maitre D was so kind and accommodating. This restaurant is a huge reason that we will be back to Punta Mita soon.
