Wonderful, attentive service all evening. The air conditioned room with the salad bar and soup was filled with delicious and unusual salads and soup. The meats were prepared to perfection. There were 14 different meats to sample including beef, chicken, pork and lamb. It was worth the 30 minute drive from the other side of the island.

Party of 6 all had a great time. Food was perfect. A little pricey but so far well worth it. Great service! Great salad bar. May go back one more time.

When you enter the restaurant you'll come into a forest-like atmosphere where you can sit outside or under a roof. The food is good and served at high speed so don't forget to flip the card from green to red once in a while. Otherwise you won't have time to eat the meat. The restaurant is not situated in a...

Although a bit remote, L'Aldea is worth the trip. When you enter the restaurant it feels like you enter a mini rain forest. Reservation is a must, were it not that you don't want to make the trip to hear that all tables are booked. The personnel is very friendly and has a good sense of humor. The owner is... More

Not bad, not great. It is average. We were told on the phone we needed reservations, yet when we arrived there was one table, lol. Pricier than US versions yet less variety. I will say, this place is WAYYYYY out of the way, as in out in the boondocks. We had a car so found our way here after an... More

Let's see now, I heard about L'Aldea from a friend's wife staying at the Grand Hyatt, which by the way is a truly exceptional resort. I told her about the Grand Hyatt and she enlightened me about L'Aldea....thank goodness for good friends! It was all she raved about and a lot more, and it truly is the "best" restaurant in... More
