Travels with a Gourmet

a food lover's travels, memorable meals, culinary trials and gastronomic experiences

The Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve has been open almost half a year now so it’s time for me to finally write about the restaurants on the property.  In the first of a series of four posts, I’ll be featuring the food and beverage options at the hotel.

First up is Positivo Sandbar which is a beautiful open-air deck located right on the beach with lounge chairs and tables set in the sand and a large bar serving creative cocktails. They serve a small menu at lunch of salads and appetizers and a slightly different dinner menu with the same appetizers without the salads and the addition of pork belly sliders and kobe beef sliders.

Lunch is open only to hotel guests who can enjoy their meal either at the bar or poolside then at sunset, the bar is open to everyone.  On several occasions, I’ve had both lunch and dinner.  For lunch, the alcohol-free Cucumber mint drink is refreshing accompanied by either a Carribbean Cobb salad with lobster or my favorite tomato avocado tostada salad.  The empanadillas (mini empanadas or fried turnovers), spinach and corn or beef, are delicious and so is the crispy calamari.  In the evening, try one of their signature cocktails then continue with the shrimp ceviche or the shredded pork belly sliders while enjoying the spectacular sunset.
