The lobster was cooked to perfection...as was the rest of the dish. Marco, the restaurant manager went out of his way to be certain that we received the utmost in personal attention which... More

We spent six nights at Los Suenos and came here for our last meal before heading home. The service was fantastic and the meal was as well, especially the lasagna. Request an outside table by the marina if it's not too hot out.

The restaurant closes at 10pm and we showed up at 920pm. The waiter rushed us to place our order because he said the kitchen closes at 10pm. Where I'm from that means the last order can be placed at 10pm....not so here. They offer a two for $39 dinner on Thursday nights which ended up being the pasta with chicken... More

Looks like Hollywood set this place up for the sport fishermen,very nice setting but calling this place authentic Italian is like saying the Olive Garden should get a Michelin star. Save your money and go to Los suenos beach and sit with the locals...the food is great.

We sat outside here by the marina and that was wonderful! Had dinner and watched some boats coming in for the day. The food was good, a little pricey for Italian.

We came in here with the family. They were nice enough to accommodate our party of five at the last minute. The waiter had been up selling us everything on the menu. We wanted two glasses of wine, he sold us the bottle. We ordered the focaccia bread, he sold adding the cheese & tomatoes on it. So maybe he... More
