On Valentine's night, we had reservations at Don Manuel's in the Capella Pedregal resort. Again this place came recommended by Ali and Jason. The resort is rated #1 on Trip Advisor and wowza, it is first-class. I am grateful to Ali & Jason for the recs as I would have never thought that you could go into other resorts to eat.
We started with drinks by the firepit. We both ordered one of their signature drinks called Snake 13, made with mescal tequila, ginger ale, cucumber & pineapple. Mescal tequila has a real smoky flavor, it was definitely different, but I finished mine (and some of Chris').
We split the corn risotto as an appetizer. For his entree, Chris had the braised pork with plantains and black beans (not pictured).
I ordered the blackened amberjack that was served over a slaw & pistachio salad and green mole. It was a very meaty piece of fish. Great dish, even better presentation.
On our last night we went to the beach party at the sister hotel next to our resort. We had the buffet dinner (nothing to write home about), listened to the live band, danced to one song - Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight" and overall just people watched.
