On March 6th, The Serafina Restaurant Group celebrated the grand opening of aMare, our newest restaurant, located in the brand new Serafina Beach Hotel.
Guests at the grand opening were able to experience aMare’s modern take on vibrant Mediterranean flavors with Italian and Caribbean flair. The name aMare means “To Love” in Italian and “Will Love” in Spanish, as well as reminding us about the beauty of the sea; “Mare” in Italian and “Mar” in Spanish. Be prepared to fall “In Love” with your next meal at Serafina Beach hotel, whether you want the best brunch restaurant on the island or a romantic evening dinner overlooking the ocean, aMare has it all.
The 140 seat restaurant features both indoor and outdoor seating. Echoing the meaning of its name, aMare has an elegant yet modern interior as well as a gorgeous terrace that offers breathtaking sea views. The young and vibrant vibe from aMare resonates through the entire hotel to create an energetic and lively atmosphere.
The Grand Opening was a resounding success. Those in attendance were treated to music from DJ Carlos Pujal, incredible dishes prepared by Executive Chef Rubén A. Guzmán, featuring local ingredients and seasonings, and a vast selection of wine and cocktails.
Chef Rubén A. Guzmán has worked tirelessly over the last few months to put together the perfect menu for aMare. It’s packed with incredibly fresh seafood ranging from the “Heavenly Lobster Tacos” appetizer to the “Halibut with Risotto Ai Porcini” entree. If seafood isn’t for you, there are vegetarian options abound such as Quinoa and Shiitake Mushroom, and Risotto with Black Truffles and Champagne, as well as twists on classic dishes such as Filet Mignon Burgers. Chef Guzmán has created a few special items on the menu that are made to be shared, including “Spaghetti Al Parmigiano” which is a pasta dish that is made tableside in a Parmesan wheel.
aMare is now open for breakfast from 7 AM to 11 AM daily, and open for lunch from 12 PM to 4 PM, Friday through Sunday. Dinner is served from 6 PM until 11 PM Sunday through Thursday, and until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. Affordable valet service is available!
