The staff at this the Congo restaurant are amazing. The food was good but the staff made it great. We were met with a smile. After the first day, the staff knew our names and preferred drinks.

Our family was staying at Hotel San Bada and ate at the Congo Restaurant multiple times. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The staff was super friendly and efficient, especially Cristhin, Emilio and Derek. We were always greeted with smiles and were provided great service. The atmosphere is comfortable and welcoming. I would recommend trying the Congo Restaurant... More

The burger, offered on the lunch menu, is the biggest and best I've ever had. Service is top-notch. All meals were fresh and well prepared.

Breakfast was superb, made to order omelets plus lots of other great items. I had the Red Snapper for dinner, it was just so delicious and presented wonderfully by the Chef. All of the staff was...

We only ate breakfast at the Congo but spent several nights at the bar and found Derek to be very charming and made us feel like we were the only guests! He went out of his way to make our stay very enjoyable. Ask for Derek when you arrive!

After our horrendous treatment and experience at Buru Resturante, we walked across the street and found this Restuarant at this hotel. They were lovely and inviting. We had breakfast here. It was very good with omelet a made to order, friendly service, good food, inviting atmosphere. Please spend your money here. Do not go to Buru where they discriminate

My sister and I recently stayed at the San Bada hotel for 8 nights, and wow we couldn't have picked a better place! The restaurant supplied a great atmosphere- there were outside tables and inside tables- and the wait staff was impeccable! We absolutely loved the bar tender, Silvia, who was amazingly sweet! Also, Derek, Maykel, Jorge and everyone else... More

We had breakfast buffet-style which was included with our stay at this hotel. Wait-staff and bar staff were outstanding. Good omelet bar, nice choices and perfect bacon! We also ordered a snack at the bar at top of hotel with a great view. Nachos were yummy. Drinks were perfect and bartenders were terrific.
