A great selection of drinks and dishes with unique flavors. The servers were extremely attentive and made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant. Delicious wine, desserts and main dishes. The breakfast buffet had everything you could possibly want with a touch of gourmet.... not a boring continental breakfast. We stayed at the hotel and tried almost everything off the menu during our stay and no complaints. Every angle was perfect.

We stayed at El Mangroove for 4 nights and had 4 breakfasts and 3 dinners at Makoko. The food was very good and the staff was excellent. The breakfast buffet was very nice with good variety and excellent fruit. The dinner menu had enough good choices that we could choose a different entree every night.

We've enjoyed dinner three times at the bar at Makoko. William and Caesar are exceptional bartenders and very well trained on the full dinner menu. They were happy to make recommendations and suggest several different cocktails and desserts. The food was delicious.

We were staying at the El Mangroove, so dining at its top restaurant was the natural thing to do, and a wise choice at that. The menu is somewhat limited, but still diverse enough to satisfy most preferences. HOWEVER, the chef will also prepare your catch if you go fishing, which we did, creating one of the best cerviches I've ever had, supplemented with GREAT red snapper. The service was excellent; clearly all staff genuinely care for the patrons' complete satisfaction. You don;t have to be staying at the hotel to enjoy a truly first-class dining experience.
