Bogart's is quite nice and very romantic. It is a designed to look like Rick's in the movie Casablanca but is mucch fancier. It is a bit pricey but certainly a wonderfull place for an anniversary. They have a piano and you can give him requests. We usually go once a year.

We've been to Bogarts once, and greatly enjoyed the experience. However, we've been to La Palapa several times, and for the last two years have our pictures taken at sunset by a wandering photographer while we're there. Pictures turned out great! Food has been excellent. We'll be back again next spring and look forward to adding to our pictures (in fact, I can see last spring's from where I sit, & it brings back some fine memories.

Enjoy.

Bogart's, Si! Si!

My wife and I ate at Bogart's 2 years ago. We arrived at 6:00 so entrees were 2 for 1. We were escorted to a table where a Morrocan costumed waiter removed my wife's shoes and placed a pillow under her feet. We started out with pina coladas, we each had soup, a main course, shared a dessert and finished it off with flaming Mexican coffee. The total bill? I still have the stub, was less than US$50.00 - We will never forget the wonderful experience and plan on returning next winter.

Candi - you'll enjoy LaPalapa! Des and I had dinner there a couple weeks ago on the last night of our honeymoon. Fabulous! The sunset was beautiful, the service and the food were excellent.

Enjoy your 1st anniversary!

We missed the early bird special when we ate there last fall. Dinner for 4 wasn't cheap but was very good to excellent. My main observation is that it was quite a drive from south of town, where we were staying. Otherwise, fun and enjoyable, tho the ambience is a bit over the top (in a fun way).

Once again, im the hard one to please :( . I thought Bogarts had a great atmosphere and was very comfortable. I liked the live piano music. The wine was overpriced, the deserts were not very good and the food was mediocre.

Service was excellent.

Hey, Jeff. That is exactly what my husband and I thought, too! We were glad to have gone and seen it after hearing so much about it but are in no hurry to go back.

We ate in Bogarts in Cancun several years ago. It was so dark the waiter carried a flashlight to read the menu. We had a hard time seeing the food on our plate, and have avoided all Bogarts since.

Ah yes, the flashlights. My eyes aren't what they used to be, I thought at first it was just me...

Truthfully, every restaurant has good and bad days. Our dinner at Bogarts was very good, including dessert. On the other hand, the only meal I've had at La Piazetta, recommended by most, was mediocre at best, not only for me but all 4 of us that night. Every course was *off*.

Overall, Bogart's is known for their food, I think it's a safe bet for a good meal, though not for an inexpensive one.
