North Pacific Coast Restaurants



Ttiki Review

The proper French chef at this new alfresco restaurant in the revived Hotel Pasatiempo beckons diners with his perfectly executed cuisine, like a whole snapper grilled in salt, crunchy on the outside, moist and tender inside, and served with a finely sliced potato gratin, plump herb-roasted tomatoes, and a baby-greens salad. Add a glass of French rosé and voilà—you're in France. The dessert specialty is profiteroles, dark chocolate-bathed, choux pastries filled with ice cream. The chef also produces not-to-be-missed cream-filled meringue macarons, a miracle in this humid climate. Presentation is artistic and service is polished and friendly. With a world-music soundtrack, white tablecloths, and candles, dinner here is serene and sophisticated but never stuffy.
