Had a very romantic dinner, it helped that the place was quite empty as we went late. The ambience was really nice, the waiter very helpful and the food was great.

We visit Cenacolo every time we are in Playa - most often several times per trip. The food, the wine, and the location are all amazing. Our favourite server Henry always makes our visit extra special, and keeps us coming back. Always a great evening....More
