Our guests were very impressed and will return. My wife was overwhelmed by the special Birthday dessert. It was marvelous and we shared it all around. We have been to Talavera many times, mostly for special occasions and was just as impressed with the ambiance, food and service. A great evening for all four of us.

the place has great views, service is great and very friendly. Cuisine was disappointing, very fat...spicy, overcooked. Desert was a ...dry and tasteless chocolate cake.

This is our first trip back to the Four Seasons North Troon since they reimagined and refreshed the Talavera restaurant format last year. Talavera has always been a well run restaurant however its new Spanish/Latin incarnation is wonderfully focussed, distinctive and as you would expect @Four Seasons, beautifully executed. When excellent restaurants change leadership, they rarely surpass what was. Talavera is an exception. Our experiences during our stay were nothing but exceptional and enjoyable in this wonderfully elegant and relaxed restaurant. An excellent menu and overall, a very pleasant surprise that I would highly recommend.

Everyone at the resort was very professional and welcoming, waitress in the bar and the hostess were excellent,I have dined there before and was expecting a much better experience in the restaurant than we received. No one came back to check on our dinners, I had a pork shank which was fine, but the accompaniment was squash which was so hard I could barely cut it with my knife. . I realize this is restaurant week and perhaps that is why we weren’t given the kind of service we expected, but I will not return at any time. Restaurant week should be a time to to give people a great dining experience so they want to come back. Our waiter was not available to give us dessert, nor were we able to find him to pay our bill. Another employee brought our desserts and reminded our waiter that we wanted to pay. Overall it was not a very pleasant evening and I’m very sorry for that because the resort is lovely and I had planned to bring visitors but will not.

Amazing food and ambience.
Service started off great but the server must’ve gotten busy with other tables as he wasn’t nearly as present towards the end.
Chef deserves the James Beard Award!

I asked twice for the air conditioning to be turned up so it was not so cold for my 80 year old parents. Twie promised and never was fulfilled. Cold air kept blowing on us throughout dinner. We asked for a table out fo the sun as my father has skin cancer. We were sat at a table in the setting sun and I had to sit so I could shadow my Dad's face for 10 minutes until the sun set low enough. I asked for two things and Talavera management failed to do either of them.

We eat out a lot, and consider ourselves foodies; we find most expensive restaurants are good, but the food at Talavera was another level— what you hope for in an upscale restaurant; The tortilla española was a surprise of flavors at several levels, the barramundi had a gremolata sauce that took it from a good to a great dish, pork mole was what you hope for in a molé, not too sweet, and spice was interesting, not just picante, though it was that too, pork fell off the bone into that delicious molé. Desserts also great, cheesecake consistency was a lighter fluffier version of New York style with a great raspberry sauce. When we arrived there was live music that was WAY too loud in the hotel lobby, which got us worried, but the restaurant was insulated from that, and playing nice Spanish themed music. Service was not overly fast but pleasant and we were not in a hurry to wolf down the delicious food, so it all worked out well. Although it is a drive from Tempe, we will be back, and recommend to our friends who like interesting and tasty food.

Restaurant week

Paella was brought on a separate plate that was hot and very surprised they didn’t serve it. I don’t think the spatula and the serving spoon were the best utensils to be using servers did not come back to see if we were enjoying our food .

They were out of the flavor sorbet we ordered and they brought a substitute favor without asking us to choose the flavor. There were 2 options.

I normally don’t write reviews I was disappointed because I excepted more from a Four Seasons Restaurant.

The view is great, but the food is unbelievable overpriced. The will serve you one tomato cut in pieces for $15 and one little octopus leg for $20. We spent $250 for two and left hungry.

Food was a bit disappointing.. the paella talavera, especially

Service was pleasant but slow

Quite pricey for the value

Sat outside with lovely view, very nice evening... and that is the only reason we might recommend.. certainly not for the food

We enjoyed the “Summer in Seville” tasting menu for two. Not only was the food delicious and authentically Spanish, it was also inventive and the bottle of obscure Basque wine went perfectly with everything. The chef clearly was knowledgeable and skilled at her craft. We sat out on the terrace and enjoyed lovely views and our server and the other waitstaff was attentive and competent and very interested in what they were doing. We were impressed.

Everything about or visit was fabulous! What made it even more enjoyable was our encounter with Anthony in the bar. I believe he is the manager of the bar. His personality and professionalism really made our evening! He even came to check on us during dinner! Oh ya, the food and the staff in the restaurant are great too!
