Excellent service and food. Too bad they are closing down until later in Nov for seasonal reasons. Get the large table at the back corner for 6+.

Pork chops And paella were amazing. Wish they stayed open later.

Seafood paella was very disappointing. Clams and mussels were not good. Shrimp was dry and the rice was to wet. Last year it was excellent. Nobody was around to ask how the food was. A different waiter drop our bill off and walked away. We signed it and left!

We had the fried Calamari but they were mostly the tentacles which I do not like & wouldn’t have ordered had I known. We ordered the Valencia style paella for 2 & unfortunately it didn’t have a lot of flavor. There are many other restaurants here at Vidanta that we will frequent but this won’t be one of them.

I love this place. It was my 3rd visit to Vidanta and the first thing I did was get a reservation for a night when they had a flamenco dancer. It was the same dancer as when I was here last year and she's phenomenal and so is her guitar player. And if you go, the paella is a must.

My wife and daughters all had to leave half way through our meal because they were getting eaten alive by some unseen insects. They each got about 15 bites. Not sure if it was flies, mosquitoes or noseeums - but they need to do some treatments for pests.

Excellent food, service and live entertainment. Paella was very authentic and the flamenco music and dancer were great. Definitely recommend this as a restaurant to try while at the resort.

The overall experience was beautiful. However much of the seating is on couches, a few with no back, so not great for eating but better just for drinks and appetizers. But lovely performance and really beautiful area.

Hicimos la reservación y aunque estaba el restaurante con una ocupación del 50% nos mandaron a una mesa donde no se veía el show de flamenco ni siquiera en lo más mínimo. Con esta remodelación se perdió el encanto que tenía. Las personas que del hotel no hicieron ni el más mínimo esfuerzo por ofrecernos algo donde pudiésemos ver el espectáculo el cual era la razón principal para ir a este restaurante. Nos tuvimos que ir del lugar... una tristeza la atención
We made a reservation and although it was at 50% of occupancy they gave us the farthest table where we couldn’t see anything from the flamenco show which was the main reason we wanted to be there.... the new remodelation was for worse. The people from the restaurant didn’t even tried to gave of another table or tried to improve the view... what a shame the service.

Diego, our server, was so attentive and sweet. Your flamenco dancers EXQUISITE. Such a memorable evening! But, please, fix the cable. No internet service and then no television was so disappointing.

Made a later reservation for a birthday dinner and requested outdoor seating. I know that's not always available but when we showed up early they rushed to seat us inside right by the front door/host and next to the loud live music. I couldn't even hear myself think let alone concentrate on the menu or have conversation with my family. I asked if we could wait for our reservation time for an outside table to open up and they played stupid so we just left.

Only place on the resort I had poor customer service with. Again, I'm realistic with availability and such but when you have a reservation and know it's a special occasion I'd hope you'd do more for your guests.

The restaurant was very nice but too cold. We asked to have the fans turned off but all of the guests were bundled up because the air conditioner was running. We had the paella which was very good but it was a bit pricey.

We love the Dueto Andaluz show! We attend each trip here. I was bummed out that we were seated in the back out of view of the show. I told the hostess we came a long way for this shoe. We were told by the hostess that the show view tables had reservations a couple weeks out. Not long after a couple came in stood near us reviewing the menu BEFORE deciding to stay and were seated in the table band side! They got drinks & an appetizer and left!!! They certainly appeared not to have a long standing reservation. Nor there for this show. The service by Diago was excellent. The food outstanding. The view of the show non-exhistant. ☹ The lesson here is if this is your destination make reservations well ahead and be specific on seating if your attending a show.

We have been to this restaurant twice. The first experience was amazing & service exceptional so we decided on going there again on a different trip. However, they gave us a really bad table close to the door and said it was a fully booked night although there were many empty tables. It was our 20th anniversary & I had mentioned that on our reservation. I didn’t feel like they made any effort to make it special.

Nice setting. Service was good. Appetizer & Sangria were excellent. Seafood Paella was bland tasting.
