This restaurant is lovely and the service is excellent as one would expect from a restaurant within the Ritz Carlton. The problem for us was that we ordered the tasting menu with wine parings and found it very disappointing...and very, very long! Stay with the regular menu or enjoy a better meal downstairs at the club grille.

Dear Rick B, Thank you for dining at Fantino during your recent stay at The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun. The Chef and culinary team take great care to design flavorful Tasting Menus each quarter, to highlight the Mediterranean influences of the dining room as well as creating unique gourmet experiences for our guests. We focus the same attention on The Club Grill,... More

An amazing dinner what we had at Fantino whitin Ritz Carlton Cancun. The service was perfect and at the right time. Everything was delicious. We started with a white wine made of Verdejo from Rueda, Spain; fruity and crisp, perfect as an aperitif with carpaccio and burratta was delightful. After that, we had a Pouilly-Fuissé of Bouchard Aine & Fils... More

Top service, delicious food and beautiful formal dining room is the story at Fantino. From the decadent bread selection with 3 different olive oils and imported sea salt to the desserts, which are works of art and taste amazing, this is a very decadent and special restaurant if you are a Foodie. My Rose Tattinger champagne came on its own... More

Dinner was a memorable event, offering superlative service in an elegant atmosphere. The meal itself began with an amuse bouche of a flavorful, frothy mushroom soup and choice of three hot freshly baked breads and three types of olive oil. Outstanding dishes included the Nicoise (ordered a la carte from the tasting menu) which was two types of thinly sliced... More

First visited a few years ago while staying at the Ritz. Thought our fellow guests, who were telling us they had dined there several times in one week, were clearly at the mercy of the resort and too boring to leave the property. We ate there on our second to last night. Yep, quickly followed by eating there the final... More

I was told by a friend to try the Fantino restaurant at the ritz Carlton, and I was certainly not disappointed. In two weeks in cancun I tried an awful lot of restaurants but this by far was the best! Fantino is a European restaurant which is a welcome change from eating chili with everything. The prices are higher that... More

Unbelievable foodie experience. The entrees and service were fantastic! I had the lam and my husband had fish and both were exceptional. The restaurant also has an extensive wine list.
