Despite being in a luxury resort and offering an excellent service, their meals quality and innovation should be improved significantly. It is unacceptable that in this restaurant you need to ask to an waiter to warm your breakfast, because the buffet is cold.

We ate at this restaurant for 2 of our 8 night stay. Food was OK, but not great. We were disappointed. Then they closed this restaurant to us and we had to eat at the outdoor restaurant. Food there was worse. We spoke to the General Manager of the resort and they made some changes, but over all not good... More

We very much enjoyed our experience, the service was top notch, we had the restaurant to ourselves so it was very intimate. The food was amazing and the whole setting was perfect. Would love to come back again and also to stay at the Mukul!!

Amazing - private - authentic spanish flooring - historical - Flor De Cana Family Place to eat. Service, food, and chef are all GREAT! Expensive, sure, but well worth it. You get what you pay for me, the chef is friendly and a real talent, he can do anything!

While staying at Mukul, we ate at La Mesa almost every evening. The staff and food are absolutely incredible! The wine list is extensive and superb. They decanted (in beautiful decanters btw) wines that needed it and served all at the perfect temperature. Do yourself a favor and have Bismark, the talented La Mesa chef, make you a personalized tasting... More

We were staying at Aqua Wellness Resort and it was definitely worth making the trip for dinner! And lunch and another dinner... There was no entrance fee for the resort but I would recommend if you want to visit to make a reservation, since there is extensive security to enter the grounds. An obvious aesthetic difference from Aqua, but it... More

Gourmet food in the tropics is not always easy to find. The menu is varied and inviting. There are two tasting menus. Although not every course on the menu I had was a home run, overall the quality, presentation, and service was outstanding. The meal isn't inexpensive, though. If you can afford it, highly recommended.
