A good single-plate breakfast that recovered from the cardinal sin of service: rejection over accommodation. If an establishment touts b'fast til 10:30 and a customer appearing at 10:27 asks for it, you reflexively endeavour to fulfill that request, whether it's your first week on the...More

We recently dined at Alto Bajo with a large group. The waitstaff was very accommodating, attentive and polite. I wanted to love this place, but the food fell short. The use of adobo spice was too much and in almost every dish. The drinks were...More

Was staying at the HILO and this restaurant provides breakfast. Ate there twice. It was good. Had the HILO omelette one day and the HILO breakfast the next (added some bacon). Note that there is no cappuccino / expresso machine here. Drip coffee is ok.

Great late brunch until 2 pm on weekends. My wife and I had stayed at the connecting hotel and were very impressed with the vegan options for brunch. A little slow when it came to service , but overall good experience.

I was pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. As someone who is intimately familiar with Mexican food, I can say that the chef delivered. Expect an elevated experience, as it is a Mexican food with a modern twist. My barbacoa dish was fantastic, even that the...More
