Concierge.com's insider take:
A Moorish-style archway marks the entry into a fabulous dining experience where chef Donnie Masterton uses local ingredients to create elegant, familiar dishes with delightful twists in a classy setting. Tables are scattered about a large, sparsely decorated courtyard, where the walls are a subdued cream color and a fountain trickles in the background. Servers move about efficiently, delivering crab and octopus lightly dressed with cilantro-caper mayonnaise stacked atop avocado slices, grilled calamari with house-cured bacon, melt-in-your-mouth short ribs with snow peas, and other comfort foods. Finish with the tangy-sweet panna cotta and mint tea, followed by a slow stroll to the nearby Jardín Principal for a perfect San Miguel evening.—Maribeth Mellin
