I attended an event recently and I got to dine at Mario`s Tomas Morato again after a long time. I remember Mario`s fondly because the first time I ever dine there was during a good friend`s wedding. After that I attended a lot of other events usually related to a launching by a government office or a medical event.
Mario's is a Spanish restaurant know for it`s great Sunday buffet. Please excuse me, I did not have time to take photos of the venue because it was filled to the brim with people and our party was in a private room.
I really did not like the dirt aftertaste of this soup. So I was pretty bummed out when I tasted it. I expected a lot. This was a downer.
The main dish was the salvation! I really loved the Fish Fillet, it has a slight taste of butter but not overwhelmingly so. The potatoes were very creamy, the corn, tomatoes and beans were all fresh. I was very satisfied with this dish.
This dish was served with Fettuccine & Cream Pesto and grilled tomato. one of my friends had this dish and I also got to taste it. I thought the pasta was tasted too much of cream, the meat a bit tough, I was so glad I decided to have the fish!
This dessert was ok, nothing spectacular but the standard Chocolate cake ala mode. Although I was sad that they served this dish and it was melting all over the plate.
Like I said, the place was buzzing and filled with people when I was there, but the servers were polite abet a bit slow maybe because of the sheer volume of the diners. If I would describe Mariio`s I would say it served comfort food for mature diners. I can tell there were a lot of regulars here dining with their families. Tomas Mhratos has a lot of dining spots, but they still return to Mario`s so there must be something there.
I personally, would want to try another set meal but I would not go out of my way to dine her again.
