As part of the all-inclusive package at the Caribbean Village resort, guests have access to three exquisite dining options in addition to the expansive buffet. During our 11-day stay, we tried each of the three.
Firenze Italian Restaurant: We were greeted with a white wine cherry cocktail and the staff worked diligently to assure our every need was met. While this is a full service Italian restaurant, we choose the beef fillet in a red white with shallots and mushrooms dish, served with garlic Parmesan mashed potatoes or a twice baked with cheese. OH MY GOD... the meat melted in your mouth. Each bite was to savor. My husband was surprised with a special birthday cake as we were celebrating his 43rd! The whole place sang to him, topping off a wonderful evening.
La Troje Mexican Restaurant: Dinner was authentic Mexican cuisine and was exceptionally good! The staff works hard to assure your comfort and enjoyment while dining with them. Sombreros add to the festive atmosphere and provide for a great photo op. (Unfortunately we didn't know that and missed it!) The quality and quantity of the meal was outstanding, although the menu was a bit limited in terms of choice. Tacos and burritos are Mexican mainstays, and did not disappoint. I found the rice to be especially good and flavor able, not like some of the cardboard stuff I’ve had stateside. Careful with the margaritas here... they will kick your butt!
Mirandas Brazilian Restaurant: This night was a very interesting experience as there was no ordering from a menu. The meal began with a special lime fruit juice cocktail and seafood soup. A self-serve salad bar was also available, but we passed. Dinner included a plate of steamed vegetables and tableside carved meats... six of them. The server came out after each prior meat entrée had been eaten. The meats were: prime rib, chicken, pork loin, veal, lamb, and ribs. A variety of sauces were provided as choices to enhance the flavor, although we loved them so much there was no reason to "need" to mess with the taste. Dinner was capped off with your choice of homemade desserts and coffee, cappuccino, or espresso.
Given that we only paid $110 per night for our entire all-inclusive vacation, we felt that these three restaurants added great value to our experience.
