Trip Report Puerto Rico Places to Eat

I SOON SAW THAT THIS WAS NOT YOUR AVERAGE RESTAURANT
The first inkling of this occurred when we drove up to the security gate of the St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, and the security guard insisted on escorting us to the distant hotel on the grounds. The second inkling was when that drive took us through extensive mangrove swamps on both sides that were “sanctioned by the Audubon Society of North America”, and by a golf course. The third inkling was when we arrived at the hotel and were greeted by about 10 employees one of whom was the car valet. Finally, we were then escorted to the 2nd floor restaurant (the Fern Restaurant) and seated all by ourselves on a balcony overlooking their beach on the Atlantic Ocean. (We had arrived at 6 pm, which is about an hour before guests usualy show up in Puerto Rico.)

The food was delightful – my wife had their house specialty grouper, and I had lobster removed from the shell. We were also each given a small dish of fried snapper, and I was given a dish of mashed potatoes, all compliments of the chef. The service was equally delightful, as their wait staff had only us to visit with for that hour. Then when we left they eagerly wished us to come again – which we could do if only we were part of the so-called “one percent”.

This restaurant deserves to be listed in "places to eat" in Rio Grande, even if it is flagged as "expensive".
