      These look pretty good! My wedding is at the GPR in November and we opted to upgrade to a private reception on the beach. I haven't gotten around to getting menu options from the WC yet. When is your wedding and which WC are you dealing with?

        We did a site visit and food tasting at The Royal PDC.  We chose:

         

        salad - spring salad with goat cheese and almond oil (the caribbean salad with shrimp was also good)

        soup - princess cream with asparagus and mint (I think the oyster soup was good too - can't really remember)

        main course - giving guests a choice of the beef or the chicken (these were a little dry, but thought most people would prefer these more than the lamb and fish, especially since the chicken comes with fish)

        dessert - tres leches cake (not on the menu, but the chef made it for us as an extra option - so good!) - the cheesecake was really good too.

         

        Hope this helps!

           I just got engaged and I'm planning a trip down in April to check out a some places, and considering the Gran Porto Real...how did you go about setting up a food tasting? Thanks for your help!

                Just got married at the Gran Porto Real and everyone really enjoyed the food! We recommend the Parisian chocolate fruit with cinzano flavour for desert - it was delicious!

                      Well be getting married at GPR on December 5th.  What day are you getting married?  Did you go down for a site visit, and if so how was it?  We went with the International Buffet 2, looked like a great variety and we really didnt want to be stuck picking one meal for every guest.  I hope that the food is satisfactory
