Here are my reviews on the restaurants from our trip:
ANNA- MARIA: I did a separate review of this restaurant
BAREFOOT: We went there twice in the past two weeks. In our past two trips we have gone to Barefoot 4 times. We love this new restaurant and its ambiance, service and food is excellent. Luc is so warm and welcoming and they are quickly establishing themselves as a destination restaurant. When we were there during our two weeks at Christmas, they had tables occupied but in contrast both visits on this trip the restaurant was full. We had their goat cheese salad and tomatoe soup both amazing. We both had fish dishes and thought they were fantastic. This restaurant is under a very large Palapa with a few opening with no cover. Some of the tables sit on sand under the Palapa. Luc has added tables at night on the beach and the whole place is beautiful.
PINCHOS: Had a great meal there. We ordered their chicken skewers as our main meal and it was "out of this world" good. Prices very reasonable. My only "complaint" if you will, is that they installed white wedding style tents over most of their restaurant. While I understand the reason they needed to do this, it looses a lot of the ambiance it had being fully open. Perhaps, they need to look at something more long term with more character that marries the overall image of the restaurant.
YEMANJA WOODFIRED GRILL: Excellent, excellent, excellent. We love this place and very reasonable pricing. We love their soups and fish. We have also had their lamb which is also very good. The service was wonderful and the staff are so friendly. You can't go wrong with this place.
WINDOWS: Very beautiful place with lots of food options. Soups are very filling so we generally would share that to start. We had a new waiter this trip who was pleasant but seemed to be absent a lot of the time. We found out later that he was sick and was "barely hanging in" that night. Another always good meal.
WACKY WAHOOS: First time for DH but second for me. We loved the fish and both heartily agreed that this is the best place for fish. We had the Wahoo and loved it. The place is small and crowded with no place to wait for your table. Not a restaurant to go for a quiet, intimate dinner. Can't wait to go back. Best to make reservations through your hotel concierge.
5 GUYS BURGERS: Went twice for lunch and loved it. We don't have this in Canada yet (actually I just heard they opened one in Kingston, Ontario) thought the place was very good. Very clean and delicious burgers. Too bad it is hidden a bit from the road, however, I am sure that people will find out about it quickly. Lots of staff and it was quick service.
Well, that's it for restaurants....
