Fodor's Expert Review La Residence
This fine-dining enclave has an unparalleled setting—Spanish-colonial architecture, with pillars and archways overlooking a courtyard—and remains a haven from the hustle of the tourist trips even as it no longer hits the same high points it once did. Alas, the veteran French chef has left, though the French menu remains. A three-course prix-fixe is reasonably priced and available for both lunch and dinner; the best days are still Wednesday and Friday nights. À la carte prices will make the bill higher, but they are still reasonable, though portions are not large. A guitarist romantically serenades diners Friday through Sunday nights. The breakfast buffet continues to be superlative.
