Before I went I was a little concerned because I knew it would be a bit pricey. Upon arriving at Agua I was absolutely blown away by the beauty of the setting. I did order the Caprese salad which had 25 year old balsamic vinegar - quite expensive but oh so good. I had a steak which was perfection. Between... More

This is a place for romance, for special family dinners, for couples. This is a splurge...not for those who think $20 an entree is expensive. It is going to come with a price tag that some will not be able to swallow but for us, we love it. This is a special and landmark hotel with noteworthy, iconic design and... More

High end, fabulous ambiance, attentive service and outstanding food!! Start with a beverage in the bar area! Dinner outdoors under lighted umbrellas casts a soft glow. The service is impeccable!! Their suggestions to split first courses, complimenting wine was all outstanding!

Driving through the One and Only grounds at night is worth the trip alone. The restaurant is a short walk from the parking area (shuttle if you must). The service is excellent and the menu choices broad with great attention to my wife's gluten-free diet. The mushroom soup had succulent pieces of foie gras that made for a wonderful appetizer...

We made reservations for dinner here and almost cancelled because we thought it might be too formal and too much of a production. Thank goodness we didn't. We had a fantastic dinner and it was overall a terrific experience. We arrived at the entrance of the Pamilla resort and then walked quite a distance to the restaurant. The resort is... More

We took occasion to meet Chef Larbi who is originally from Morocco but lived in France and the U.S. We had a number of meals here.

The place: it's truly Mexican and authentic. Palmilla; the property is outstanding and the way they layout the restaurant makes a nice contrast between interior and exterior. The food: it's presented in beautiful Mexican plates, the lighting at night coming out of these umbrellas make a very romantic place to be. The service: it's not intuitive, I spend more than...
