Guide Review - Cafe Atlantico Restaurant Review
A six-seat minibar gives guests the opportunity to experience a variety of innovative dishes and desserts. Reservations are required with just two seatings available at 6 and 8:30 pm. The minibar tasting menu features between 30 and 35 mini dishes and costs $65 per person.
The weekend brunch is a "Latino dim sum," with a selection of small plates such as duck confit with passion-fruit oil, conch fritters with a liquid heart, jicam-avocado ravioli and malanga chips.
