I will do my best to review but I do not eat meat, which is the main draw of this restaurant sad.gif They do have a large salad bar, but you will find that what the MP calls salad, is different than what we do here. For example, broccoli salad is just broccoli. Potato salad is just potatoes. This is the same at all of the buffets, so I created my own by adding dressing to whatever type of "salad" I wanted.

Our dining experience at Arricefes started with the server bringing rolls out on a long skewer, which you pull off using a small set of tongs at your place setting. Next, they bring out mashed potatoes and rice that you are supposed to eat with the meat once it comes. Unfortunately, it does take awhile for the meat to come, so we ate our sides first. They come from the buffet, so you can always go back to get more if you want. (Or I am sure the server would gladly bring you more too.)

The meats come out one at a time on a long skewer. The server comes to your table with a knife and slices a piece of meat which you pull off using your tongs. When we were there, our server was waiting on 4 tables at a time so we had to wait for him to serve each type of meat to each of the tables before he would go to get another kind. From what I remember, they had bacon, lamb, pork, ribs, flank steak, mahi mahi, and sausage. He rambled off many other types and cuts of meat including turkey and chicken. (My group was full long before they came out, so I didn't actually see everything available!) The servers will continue bringing the meat out until you flip over your coaster like card that says to stop. If there is something specific that you want to try, mention that to the server and they will either bring it out on the skewer or will bring you your own plate (this also applies if you want seconds of something.)

The restaurant is definitely fun, but because of the way the food is served, it is incredibly slow. That would probably be fine for a night when you want to spend time visiting with everyone. My father is incredibly picky about meat, so he didn't think the food was great (but he complained about the food everywhere! lol) My husband liked everything except the sausage. MP food is really not fabulous in most of the restaurants, but this place is one of the better ones.

Gorgeous pics and thanks for the review. My Palace Resort wedding is nearing and this totally helps being down the stress. Love pic 111 where your gorgeous white peeptoe pump is poking out while getting dipped by DH! So cute.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
