We were staying at Paradisus and celebrated a birthday here. It proved to be a special 3-hour dining experience. The food was beautifully presented and the service excellent. We chose the wine pairing and were very impressed by the sommelier and her choices. It isn't quite the same as eating at a standalone restaurant, but it comes pretty close. There... More

This restaurant rivals any Michelin 3 star restaurant one would find in Paris. I had the tasting menu with the wine pairing. It was beyond excellent. The service was top notch and a very upscale decor. The restaurant is located in a very chic hotel, La Perla Paradisus. The only negative is that it was a hassle and time consuming... More

Beautiful interior and layout. Visited twice first time the service was a little hesitant second time was excellent. On both occasions the food was Michelin star standard. Creative and sometimes exciting and always perfectly cooked. Very modern European cooking in its style. Comprehensive wine list and all round a great fine dining experience .

The staff was great! Very polite (so are the rest of Mexico) . The service was so synchronized. A show awing experience. The food was beautifully and delicately plated. However, It's not for the hungry. Even more, I was wondering if Mr Barasategue really tasted these foods his executive chef serves. It did not capture my palate. Maybe I am... More
