Fodor's Expert Review Azul Restaurante y Bar

$$$ Ballena National Marine Park Mediterranean

This intimate restaurant with Mediterranean cuisine and an unbeatable view has a sophisticated look and menu. Sunsets here are spectacular, overlooking the sea and a picturesque island on the horizon, with pairs of scarlet macaws winging past at eye level. But the ultra-chic decor rivals the natural scenery. The restaurant spills out onto a large terrace, shaded by white sails by day and sparkling with strings of fairy lights at night. An elegant private room with a round table for six is illuminated by a unique, eye-catching, driftwood chandelier. The menu includes delicately fried calamari, goat-cheese ravioli, and seafood pasta alongside more daring dishes like a delicate tuna carpaccio and a creamy, tender fish fillet in a saffron sauce studded with capers. Presentation is creative and delightful. The wine selection is eclectic and international. Service is a little uneven, but who cares when you have that view?
