We keep returning to Nirvana not so much for the food which we’ve found inconsistent but for the atmosphere. It is a beautiful location providing a relaxed afternoon in the country. The staff is accommodating and the food often tasty.

A great place for lunch especially for the setting, beautiful views from all the outside tables. The food is average, unless your taste runs to grilled meats. Still worth the drive though (it's about 25 minutes outside of town).

Beautiful restaurant in the hills. You can see the sunset from this garden setting. Excellent food and service. We are told that it is too busy on weekends. Very quiet and peaceful on a weekday.

When we first started dining at Nirvana many moons ago the cuisine and the setting were stellar. Unfortunately, the past few visits had been EXTREMELY disappointing, to put it kindly. Although the atmosphere remained the food left something to be desired. Last week we had...More

I've been going to Nirvana for many years - even before it moved to the Countryside. My husband and I have also stayed in the Hotel for special occasions or "Just Because". We have never been disappointed! Juan Carlos and his staff are as friendly...More

This was a "special occasion" visit with a party of four. They were kind enough to move our table without any issues, and we had the full range of drinks/apps/dinner/dessert/apertifs. I think like many well situated restaurants, you're paying more for the delightful atmosphere than...More
