Our experience at Azucar was exceptional. From the ambience, cocktails, and menu selection, to the absolutely fabulous and kind service, every single thing was perfect. The employee recommendations were topnotch - I will plan a trip back just for the beef tenderloin dish and a blood orange margarita. Thank you for having us. See you soon!

Went here for my birthday dinner, I waited over 45 minutes for their chips and salsa and a small salad. The server either forgot about us, or decided to prioritize other tables who arrived after us. I was very unimpressed as we were recommended this by multiple friends. Luckily the atmosphere was good, otherwise my evening would have been much worse.

Service was slow but understandable due to the pandemic. Food was average. The vegan pasta was off and should have been comped but the server was unaware that we didn’t like it. Overall not the best experience.

I love this spot so much! We ate on the rooftop deck just after Sunset, it was gorgeous. Our server made the best spicy blood orange margarita and the poblano stuffed with crab meat was amazing! I can't wait to take my hubby here, definitely a gem.

Great restaurant situated right by the pool at La Serena Villas.
The cocktails were good, the food was amazing. The portions are not too big, so be prepared ;-) Great place for a date or celebration.

They really need to improve their outdoor dining area. Majorly run down with limited misters. Overall, ambiance and service has gone down hill over last year. Don’t expect to return after last night’s dinner.

Food and service were wonderful. Front door of the hotel was locked when we arrived so we spent some time wandering around trying to get in until it was magically unlocked while we wandered. Restaurant was unusually empty because it was the day after a holiday weekend so we had a private dining experience. Would absolutely go back and recommend.

The beef tenderloin is the best thing we had even though it was advertised in the menu with mushrooms there were none and the farro was just ok. The sweet potato fries had no honey mint lime drizzle, they came with regular catsup. Very tasty tho. Salad of spinach and quinoa was bland as was the brownie dessert. I’d go for the atmosphere and relaxing poolside ambiance even if the music was a little loud. Outstanding service, nice drink selection.

Main was great- swordfish. Drinks were very disappointing and appetizers were very uninspired. Watermelon salad was so pretty but really just a few cubes of watermelon and a lot of cheese. The balsamic was only on a couple of cubes. Great for pix, but won’t return.

We went to Azucar for a very special wedding dinner and couldn’t have been happier with our choice. The ambiance is romantic, the service was outstanding and the food & drinks were delicious. We were seated upstairs on the rooftop with incredible mountain views. Thank you so much for making our evening so special!

While the food was tasty the portions for the lunch menu were TINY and overpriced for the sizes. We all had to go grab a snack immediately after our meal because it was not nearly enough food ro be considered an actual meal. The design and vibes were excellent tho. Would recommend this as a place for drinks and a snack not by any means a place to enjoy a meal.

Prior to this most recent experience I had often recommended the restaurant to others. However, 1) after having a Reservation for lunch at 12:15 p.m., 2) a disappearing waiter - had to chase him down to even get a refill of water, 3) after asking three times about when our food would be served and being given answers about someone was late to work as I watched other people who arrived after I did receive their food, and 4) the food arriving at 1:40 p.m., I am not inclined to recommend Azucar.
