Eli‘s is a nice place to have lunch or dinner. Its a little tricky to find but once you did it’s nice. The restaurant is part of a hotel which seems also nice but I didn’t stay there.

We waited one hour for our food only to learn that they only cooked two dishes for a part of three. They were completely unapologetic. Not worth the wait, go elsewhere.

I ate here many times as I was staying at the Casa Carolina. Food is excellent - breakfast, lunch and dinner. Staff is very kind and friendly. There is some seating outside near the pool - 3 or 4 tables. Those are the best ones.
