Dining experiences & Mexican cuisine
Dining is one of the true pleasures of a getaway to Las Alamandas. Guests enjoy gourmet contemporary Mexican cuisine prepared by Las Alamandas talented Head Chef Alejandro Morales– who wows guests with his fusion of classic Mexican recipes, the finest fresh and organic ingredients, and the latest international trends. His daily dining choices reflect the available seasonal ingredients, which are the key to the chef’s exceptional cuisine: seafood is freshly caught by local fisherman, meats and the free-range eggs and chicken are procured from local farmers, and most of the vegetables, lettuces, herbs and fruits are grown in the resort’s own organic gardens.
The sophisticated, delicious and incredibly fresh and healthy meals are enjoyed in the resort’s most beautiful and idyllic settings, from the al fresco Oasis Restaurant and the Oceanside La Palapa Beach Club to private picnics, romantic beach dinners under the stars and the privacy of a guest suite.
A stone’s throw from the beach, the Oasis Restaurant has an enchanting indoor-outdoor dining room and a full bar in a garden setting of majestic palms and panoramas of the Pacific Ocean. In the evenings, the ambiance is magical with the many flickering candles, decorative lights and star-studded heavens. A carefully selected international wine list includes Spanish, French, Argentinian and Chilean as well as Mexican wines.
Owner Isabel Goldsmith-Patiño has developed a tropical tequila and Margarita bar featuring tantalizing concoctions using the resort’s own herbs and fruits. The Oasis Restaurant fulfills guests’ special requests, from an elegant private dinner with a tailored menu to a beach party with mariachis and bonfires.
“La Palapa Beach” Club
At La Palapa Beach Club, guests dine at the sand’s edge under a large thatched Palapa to the sound of the surf and the calls of marine birds. This is an idyllic spot where you can enjoy lunch in your bathing suit or sip drinks in the afternoon in the cool shade.
“Estrella Azul” Rooftop Bar
Estrella Azul is Las Alamandas’ hot and sexy rooftop bar and lounge where guests sip cocktails to the latest sounds, extraordinarily colorful sunsets and a sea of stars above. With its illuminated bar, comfortable sofas and oversized cushions, all in shades of blue, open-air Estrella Azul is a romantic and sensuous hangout where guests feel like they are on top of the world. And for those who want to explore the night sky, a telescope is available.
