We loved the Chateaubriand which came with three different sauces. They also brought us an amuse bouche to start and wonderful baked breads. We enjoyed breakfast each morning as well. They bring freshly baked banana bread and freshly squeezed juice as well. Very romantic setting!

I recently celebrated my bf's birthday at Grano de Oro, and had a great time. The food is truly amazing, the drinks were delicious, and our waiter was great. My bf is a haute cuisine chef, so impressing him at restaurants is really hard. He even loved every bite. Definitely try this restaurant, even if you are not staying at the hotel. It's well worth it!

We didn't have time to eat at the restaurant proper, but we did visit the bar. The coffee and cocktails were fantastic!

I love breakfast at this place. Very quite, romantic and chic. Food is perfect and lieu itself invites you to stay longer than planned. This is a nice place if you live in town and wants to bring someone for an special occasion.
