We dined as a party of 13 in a private room. The service was exceptional--absolutely incredible. The presentation of the food was amazing and the food itself, outstanding. My favorite was the parmesan soup! But we enjoyed every course that they gave us. This is a place you go to pamper yourself and enjoy a long dinner. The long-stem red... More

This is a pricey place well worth it Great choice for a special occasion My wife and daughter (whom I have taken to some of the top restaurants in the world) liked it very much. For a moment it did not feel like we were in a beach resort No item touching our table was substandard Attention to detail is... More

Dining solo can be a little unnerving, particularly at a restaurant on the very high end of the scale. I arrived, was greeted by the front of the house and walked to my perfect table in the main dining room. This is certainly a formal restaurant, on par with Robuchon or Trotters, but nonetheless the staff made it comfortable. As... More

We were staying here at the ritz carlton and decided on some "fine dining". The presentation was superb and the dinner was excellent. The service is very formal, and that is my only criticism. We had such fun, but felt our laughter was out of place! Loosen up and 5 stars for sure!

Watermelon salad was delicious, as well as the coconut soup. Each dish was presented by three servers.

We arrived early for cocktails in the bar area and were immediately impressed with the service here. The waitress was full of smiles and extremely welcoming. My partner wanted to find the toilet and she was walked nearly all the way to the door! The restaurant itself had a lounge-vibe with a cool bald piano player plonking away throughout the... More

This restaurant is very good for cancun. It's not world class but it was enjoyable. Our server remembered us from a prior visit and was very knowledgable about the menu. We enjoyed all of the items on the tasting menu and the wine pairing was excellent.

They specialize in steak so it makes sense that would be their best dish. They also do a very nice soufflé. A special appetizer of boar was tasty. Unfortunately the fish was a miss.

Once again for the second year in a row, Fantino tops our choice of restaurants. Excellent service, awesome setting and the food was more than outstanding. Compliments to the chef and the wait staff. We had the Filet and the Lobster entrees - both were amazing!
