Posada Margherita remains good and, with its limited menu, consistent. US$20 for a small bowl of pasta left a bitter after taste. Also, the service was slack.

I made two separate lunch trips to the restaurant. On my first visit, I saw a fisherman get out of his boat and bring fresh lobster to the restaurant. Me and other tables had pasta with fresh lobster- amazing. They also start you off your meal with delicious bread and pickled cauliflower. They had several fresh juices to choose from.... More

Really creative and beautiful atmosphere with a lovely view of the sea. The staff were wonderful and accommodating and allowed us to hang out for a few hours. The drinks were great, especially my Mezcal cocktail. Pricey, but that's the way it goes I guess.

My boyfriend and I both work in the restaurant industry and were told to definitely go here. We were gifted a bottle of wine and brought it, they opened it and said corkage was $350mex (not too bad) luckily we looked at the bill before paying because they charged $500mex. No big deal as it was corrected. The food is... More

Good food, but a little pricey. Went there for breakfast and seemed it was just continental....yogurt, pancakes, eggs, French toast, fruit.

We were so disappointed with the place! After having it recommended so much we were expecting awesome pasta. The place has a beautiful setting, stunning looking setup. The service was slow and clumsy, they forgo things and took way too much time. The menu is limited in options but then again high end placed often have few options because their... More

Heard so many good things about this place. Stopped by during the day to check it out for dinner. Kind of a magical place visually -- both during the day and at night. Lovely drinks. Good food. Just don't know that the culinary experience is as special at the location/space. Why do I need to spend all that money in... More

I´ve been to Posada Margarita a few years ago and loved it at the time - great atmosphere, crowd, service and good food. However this time around, I was bitterly disappointed. Service chaotic and poor, starters and pasta average, and the fish absolutely awful. Bland taste, accompanied by cold rice mixed with some random Moroccan style spices, sultanas and the... More
