This is a VERY expensive restaurant (850 to 1,100peso steaks) with beautifully presented but only not bad food. Nothing was outright unpalatable, but also not meeting the expectations of pricey dishes.

The setting was beautiful however it was freezing during our entire dinner. The food was very good but we felt it was definitely overpriced. We did not order as much as we normally would have due to the prices and we eat out all the time.

My husband and I ordered the Peking Duck which was elegantly served and delicious. This dish should be ordered in advance. Luckily, there was one left for us to order. The wine suggested by our waiter to accompany the Peking Duck was excellent! Unico Gran Reserva 2013 Vino Tinto Santo Tomas. Beautiful setting. Fun and appropriate to dress up for this dinner. The air conditioning was not overdone. I was able to leave my jacket off my sleeveless dress. The wait staff was attentive and professional.

We have been here before and somehow the last two times always put in the back so the table was too big for two. The other parts of the restaurant are nicer. The dim sum is great and food was tasty, pork sort of dry. Just not quite as good as last few years.

We were on a 7 day vacation and this was by far the best meal and service we received at the property. Out waiter Argel was the best waiter we have had at any restaurant in many years! When I say years that is not an exaggeration. If you get a chance to have a meal here please request Argel!

The food was delicious but we waited more than 20 minutes passed our reservation and then they were out of Peking duck which is what we wanted. We were told that we should have reserved it in advance because they run out but we had no idea to do that - so be forewarned. Otherwise the food was delicious

Our waiter Angel was fantastic. He recommended two special sushi rolls that fit my wife’s dietary needs perfectly.
We ordered vegetable tempura that was cooked really well, light and not greasy. I had a spicy tuna roll that was a nice size and the wasabi had a good kick to it
The sommelier, Ignacio was very knowledgeable and helpful. He recommended a Mexican wine Unico, that was a blend of Cab and Merlot it was outstanding. In fact we had 2 bottles. The only down side was the price $110/ bottle US. I went online and can order it for about $50US which I will do.
Overall a great experience, next time I’ll order the Peking Duck which looked amazing. I also will ask for Angel again as he is truly an excellent waiter that loves his job

My daughter who is a real foodie absolutely raved abut the food. She was very impressed with the Peking Duck and all of us that had it thought it was out of this world. We had our 18 month old grandson with us and our server Juan was so accommodating. We feel it is the best restaurant on the Vidanta property

The service and food provided was extremely good. From reception to seating all went smoothly. Our waiter Angel was gracious in greeting us and very knowledgeable when providing advice on Mexican wines and suggestions regarding pairing and healthy dining. His opinions led to a very good wine match with our menu selections. Throughout the evening we were provided efficient and timely service and interaction. The atmosphere is convivial and conducive to table conversation. To a person with hearing aids, that means a lot.

We enjoyed Peking Duck, though much different that what we have experienced elsewhere. We only got two very small peking duck rolls each and the rest of the duck was prepared in a starry that was far too much for us to eat. I would have preferred the majority of the meal being the peking duck preparation with the crispy skin and then a much smaller amount of stir fry to fully utilize the rest of the duck
