    I'm wondering about the food at GP. Does anyone have a picture of the menu at the different restaurants?

    I don't have any pictures of the menu but the food was pretty good. The buffet had a lot of selections. We tried all the restaurants and liked the food at all of them. We loved that you didn't have to make any reservations at any of the restaurants.

    I loved the food at all the resturants except the Sumo. I am not much of an asian food person. The Shangri la is the fancy resturant. 7 to 8 course meal. Not fast but very good. Morning and noon buffet is wonderful. Just about anything you could want. Pier 12 has seafood and more stuff. The Breeze which is the late night grill has burgers, wings, sandwiches and fries. Try the guac from there it is great.

    Food

    My relative, who has stayed at GP twice, also said their guacamole is great. I'll have to give it a shot. Do they serve standard Mexican food? I want tacos and enchiladas!!! Well that and margaritas. Do you know what type of liquor they use?

    They have some Mexican dishes on the buffet. I loved the Terriyaki Chicken at the Sumo restaurant. My husband said the sushi was really good but I do not eat that stuff ;) The steak restaurant was probably my favorite. My husband said the guacamole was really good at the Breeze. You have to try the coconut shrimp at the seafood restaurant.... it was so good!

    heading here for the first time in 35 days. When doing all inclusives in Mexico we never expect too much from the food. If we want fine dining we could stay in STL. If the food is adequate we are happy.

    Have heard the beer at the resort is Dos Equis? There are several kinds of Dos Equis beers (ie ambar, lager, etc). Anyone know what is served here? Is it all draft beer or are bottles or cans available? Is there any other beer in cans available? (specifically Budweiser)?

    Someone mentioned margaritas. In our experience, usually the margaritas at the all inclusives are not very good, at all.

    What are some of your favorite mixed drinks at GP???? I would prefer to put a nice buzz on without drinking a gallon of sugar/juice,mixes. Anyone know if Bacardi Limon is offered here? Mix that with water and you have a pretty tasty lo cal drink.

    Lastly, do any of the restaurants here require a dress code? (ie long pants, non-athletic shoes)

    We are going towards the end of March. One think I did hear is that you can bring a bottle to the resort and the bartender will save for only you (tip would help). I drink good tequila and will bring my favorite bottle to drink. Dress code from what I hear is casual , other than one restaurant that require long pants, no t-shirts and no open toe shoes for men.

    Do they have good vodka, or should we bring our own? Wife tends to get a bad headache with mid-shelf and lower vodka. Do they have Ketel One/Grey Goose?

    The gp requires no reservations. The menu is not sophisticated. You can go wherever you want about anytime. Hope this helps

    The only beer I remember was Dos Eguis, and it seemed like they had light or dark? I didn't drink much beer. Usually just got whatever was in the blender. They have lots of different kinds of those, they usually tell you what it is. Find one you like and stick with it. I drank a lot of those, and never got sick.

    My wife drank those during the day, and cocunut rum, and pineapple at night. That seemed to do the trick for her.

    At night around the a Tiki there will be plenty of shots passed around, some will be mild, and some "Mexican Viagra" may knock your socks off.

    If we go back I will buy some better rum at the airport, and have that for rum and cokes. I didn't like what they had for that at all.

    We had no problem with the food, but we aren't food people at all. Really liked the lasagna at Pier, and they have some good deserts there too, Creme brûlée.

    We've never been disappointed in any of the food options on our trips to GP. Usually by dinner, after a day of sun and drinking, everything tastes good.
