Super disappointed, we went there and no one was ready for us, 2 or 3 people later and after almost an hour waiting the cooking class started, the class itself was great and the chef was good, never did get the chef coats we were supposed to get, we were given a couple different stories, the last one being they...

Everything was amazing, you will probably think the service is a little slow but you need to relax, get the time to drink and eat and talk with your couple, family and friends. The salads are fresh, and the cooking of the meat was just right. The restaurant is inside the hotel Villa del Mar

I was researching cooking classes in the Vallarta/Nayarit area and the Casona one appeared to be the best value for the experience. I originally emailed months back through the website of La Estancia when reading about the classes on Trip Advisor and received no response. I found another email address on Trip Advisor and my classes were lined up nicely... More

I have to say that this was, by far, the absolute best cooking class I have ever taken and I am thankful that my sister found it and reserved it for us while vacationing in Nuevo Vallarta. (see pics!) When we arrived, there was a table set for 2 near a show kitchen located in a beautiful dining room (which... More

We took the cooking class at La Casona today. The restaurant is in the Villa Estancia condos. We were welcomed and donned our personalized chefs coats and toques. We were ushered into the kitchen which was set up with individual work stations facing the stove and ovens. We were offered water and wine and then the class started. Leonardo, the... More

If you have the inclination for creating fine cuisine - don't pass up the opportunity not to be missed! It was such a pleasure for us to meet with Chef Leonardo Castro, being able to spend time with him - along with members of his wonderfully engaging staff. Informative instruction, gracious - as well as entertaining, the hardest part was... More
