Ceiba - report

Geoff | Apr 30, 2004 08:37 AM

Had dinner last night at Ceiba. Not my first visit, but wanted to report.

Party of two; this was partly social, partly business. Place was hopping - 8:00 reservation, place was basically full, including lively at the bar.

Two mojitos to start; each of us had a lovely glass of Argentinian Malbec with dinner.

I started with the grouper ceviche. Friend had the duck confit empanada. Both excellent.

Entrees: Corn crusted halibut for friend, veracruz style snapper (yes, you know, the whole fish head to tail) for me. Both terrific. Fish was cooked perfectly, plenty moist, good accompanying veggies.

Dessert: espresso and a very nice flan.

Overall: Food was terrific. Service was very attentive but certainly not overbearing. Room was hopping all night, so the vibe was lively. In sum: another solid performance from our friends at Ceiba.

Added benefit for me: Friend paid. So, I'm not positive on the tab. I *think* it looked like a total of $130.
