fine italian dining

Cafe Juanita used to be a hidden gem off of the then pebbled road. They’ve remained modest, however, as the concrete (condos, paved roads) grew around them. The same friendly staff greet you upon entering the restaurant and provide you with impeccable service throughout your meal. Though I don’t always know what’s been put into a dish, the ingredients all come together so nicely, fresh and flavorful. Make room for dessert! You won’t be disappointed by Cafe Juanita.

Prosciutto with Figs and Cantaloupe

This was a summer appetizer and I was pleasantly surprised by the fig/cantaloupe combination with prosciutto. But then again, I hadn’t had prosciutto much prior to Cafe Juanita…

Seared Foie Gras

What’s not to like about foie gras? haha, it melt in my mouth, that’s all you need to know. =)

Wagyu Beef Steak

I remember the portion was big and the meat was tender… mm

another dinner

so we came back again… and they remembered us… again with no reservations and we stayed past the closing time… they did not rush us with the bill until we asked for it. There are some restaurants that rush the bill out as it reaches closing time. This is not one of them…

This time ordered the duck breast entree, octopus appetizer, quail and cippolini onion appetizer… the recommended glass of wine for the night was lagone.

I ordered the chocolate truffle cake again, but instead of having mint gelato, due not being in season they served a malt gelato instead. this replacement gelato tasted like the asian drink, Horlic.

Look at the photos for reference.

Excellent Chef

The food is well done, and menu seasonally updated. I've enjoyed the duck and trout here. It's a high end place that I wouldn't bring kids, at least...

Not Worth Going Out of Your Way For

For $200 (w/tip) - one appetizer, 2 entrees, 3 glasses of wine, one dessert - it's overpriced for the quality of food. My pasta bolognese was really greasy (left a pool of grease, not sauce, on my plate) and the pasta not top quality…

Cafe Juanita is so good, I got married there

I love this restaurant so much I got married there. In 2003, my fiance and I tied the knot on the lovely "garden patio" behind Cafe Juanita. The food and the cake were astounding, and all our guests wanted us to get married there several…
