    Hey ladies, I saw a couple of requests about the menus for EdenH. If you have any questions, just let me know :) So here's some helpful tips I thought I'd share.

    There are 4 ala carte restaurants that are only open for dinner in which need reservations. When we 1st arrived, they were taking a la carte reservations in the Festival Buffet b/w certain hours. By the time we left, they moved the reservations to the Sports Bar. Please note, as this is a new resort, they are trying to work out their reservation system. In the ala carte restaraunts, they have limited wait staff, so when you go in, all the tables will not be full. We talked to a restaurant manager and they said they are trying to train their staff to provide exceptional service to a small crowd 1st - which makes sense. We felt that the wait staff was VERY attentive and not having the restaurants overcrowded, meant less noise, and more personal attention.

    When they 1st open, they weren't making any reservations, they just had buzzers (like at Olive Garden) - which in turned caused long lines and lots of complaints. So they started taking reservations. So you will need to try and make your reservations immediately after you check in! My guests missed out on 2 of the a la cartes b/c of availability. If you are a Paradise Club member, they will do their best to try and squeeze you in. Also asked the WCs to see what they can do as well. I said all that to say -- they are working on getting it together :)

    There are 2 buffets (The Festival Buffet (a.k.a - the main buffet) - open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner & the Beach Buffet - really near the beach - only open for lunch.


    The Festival Buffet has 'stations'. (Ex: for breakfast, omelet station - for lunch/dinner - pasta & meat station, etc) They also have a fresh smoothie bar:)

    Now on to the menus, pics of the restaurant and food...

      Ok, bare with me, I'm having problems resizing the photos in Photobucket, even though on their site, the pic seems to be resized! So for now, I'll just try and type 1 of the menus in and play around with Photobucket

      You pick one item from each category. To drink you can request anything and they will get it from the bar, and then they have their basic red and white wine for free. They also have a wine menu (but these have an additional cost). All of the menus are in Spanish AND English

      * At all the ala cartes you can order lobster for an additional $30 USD. I did not notice anyone that ordered it.

                Since there is a new forum rule where you cant edit posts, I have started another thread with pics from the restaurants. I have sent a pm to a mod, to please delete this thread! Thanks
