Barefoot has excellent steak and a beautiful waterfront setting. Yemanja's filet and other food is, IMHO, better, and atmosphere is nice, but not as good as Barefoot. Haven't been to QDC, and never order steak at MJ's, which has a nice garden setting, but I would still vote Barefoot as more romantic.
Madame Janette would be wonderful. I am sure they would do something special if asked. An announcement by the singers - maybe even their wedding song if possible. I think that would be an awesome surprise! Ruins del Mar is also very nice & romantic at night with all the fire & water around.

We are the same way. We make breakfast and lunch at our timeshare. This year we splurged on breakfast out everyday as part of my husbands 50th birthday celebration. We plan to do Morningstar again in 2017 to celebrate a big wedding anniversary ourselves. I can't wait. We are hoping to talk them into allowing us 6 people knowing there will be an additional cost for the other 2 but figure it will be worth the memories.I just checked that out. it is a little pricey but looks to be worth it. Bigger problem is a couple of the guests tend to get sea sick so that would be a huge consideration. We never budget on vacation anyway. If we decide we want to do something or buy something, we do. Some people think we are budgeting all the time because we eat breakfast and lunch in most days and stay in timeshares. The reason we do this is because we LIKE to stay in timeshares and we LIKE to eat breakfast on the balcony most days. If it saves money, that is great. We seldom cook dinner in our room. The only time we do is if we fix a shrimp boil. We enjoy our dinners out. Thanks for the site, will run it by the others but don't think all will go for it. Thinking seriously about Flying Fishbone. We have never been there in all our trips. Also considering Quinta Del Carmen. All 4 of us have been to MJs and Matthews many times. This will be 4th trip for sis and bil.
