Concierge.com's insider take:
Travelers in search of a proper meal have flocked to this French/Caribbean stalwart for nearly a decade. There's a white linen polish, to be sure, but nature sets the real mood here—an ocean breeze wafts through the alfresco palapa, and the crash of waves serves as evening background music. Dishes are well-executed, French-accented takes on local fare. A warm eggplant mousse might arrive as an amuse-bouche; menu items include salmon tartare with caviar and grilled mahi mahi in ginger sauce. Otra Cosa could easily rest on its laurels—it's the default for any north coast concierge sending a guest on a "romantic" night out—yet service is attentive, almost hovering. It's not often that you're asked how much time you'd like between courses in this neck of the woods, let alone that you receive a nuanced wine pairing.—Aaron Barker
