I haven’t lived in San Antonio for very long, but I feel I’ve discovered one of the most scenic areas in the city…La Cantera. In particular, The Westin La Cantera Resort is beautiful. It’s a nice getaway…the pools are refreshing, down the street are The Shops at La Cantera, beautiful views, and for you golfers, the course is beautiful! Francesca’s is one of the fine dining restaurants located in the resort and it’s designed with a 360 view of the hills so when the time is right, you’d be watching the Sunset hence, Francesca’s at Sunset.

A great meal! Very well-seasoned and thought out dishes….My favorite dishes that we ordered were the Scallops and the Pear Salad. Scallops were perfectly cooked and the Maytag Blue Cheese in the salad was the best blue cheese I’ve ever eaten. It paired so well with the pear… haha no pun intended. The entree I could have gone without was the duck..it was slightly overcooked, although the flavors were great.
As if national recognition (AAA Four Diamond Award) wasn’t enough, they support the locals…all the more to try out this great restaurant. Whether you’re on vacation or even a local, an experience is awaiting you here…
