Excellent food and extremely attentive service! We thoroughly enjoyed the tasting menu. While it's a personal preference, I wouldn't recommend the wine pairings as the wines are oaky and it is rather expensive for what you get. Outstanding food and service make for a special...More

Just go even if you're not at the hotel. It's phenomenal but if you're expecting a huge steak go elsewhere. This is Michelin dining that one should appreciate.

There is nothing to say beyond what has already been stated by others. The food is superb. Comparable to Michelin star restaurants that I've visited in NYC and Chicago. The cost of the tasting menu with wine pairings, bottled water, and tequila came to roughly...More

The service was out of this world, they had butter and bread pairings with every course (almost as good as the meal itself), had two courses before the main 7, and couldn't have been a better experience. I wish I could go back!

Buy some nice wine /champagne and enjoy whatever is on the menu. Its all great.
Hi, We are staying at La Perla at the end of this month in a junior suite; we do not have "royal service". What is the cost of the tasting menu at this restaurant, and what is the average cost of mains on the regular menu? The website menu says 225 Euros, which seems outrageously expensive (even for a Michelin star restaurant) and I'm unclear why prices are listed in Euros. I'm wondering if this is the menu to their restaurant in Spain rather than the one in Mexico. Please advise on the cost or let me know who I can contact. Thanks, Sandy

Sandy, We stayed with Royal Service so the cost for us was just US$75. It was easily the very best dining experience of my entire life (71 years). Would I pay 225 Euros? Hard to say if I had not ever done it before. But... More

Is the La Palapa restaurant only for Royal Service? We will be visiting the resort in April with my husbands company, but we will also be celebrating our 37th anniversary and my 60th bday. How can we see, in advance, the resorts menus? Also wondering about the Passion restaurant. We would love to see the menus in English. Since we would probably need to make a reservation before we arrive for our anniversary dinner...this would be helpful! Thank you!
