My wife and I went last week and this was the best fine dining experience we've ever encountered. The service was perfect!! The atmosphere was quite and relaxing, and we enjoyed the pianist a lot. I normally am a "plain food" eater, so I'm not really qualified to judge the food - but what I had was very good!! I... More

I don’t write a lot of reviews, but this restaurant worth’s it. I could write of about the food, the decoration, the hotel, the glasses, but nothing can compare with the service. Superb, unsurpassable, best of the best, amazing, extraordinary. I’d been in the so called best restaurants of Mexico and some of the top 10 St. Peregrino list, but... More

Beautiful place and great food! The service is very good. Expensive, but worth the price. A place to go without children, though.

My girlfriends found this place on trip advisor and we decided to go based on the really good reviews. This place is inside of the Ritz Carleton hotel which is covered in floor to ceiling marble and is so beautiful on its own. This restaurant is truly five star as 3 waiters bring you every course, and they really treat... More

My family and I have been staying at the Ritz for over seven days now and so far it's been a bit of a disappointment compared to other Ritz hotels we have been to through the years. The food hasn't been great, not even good to be completely honest, and well over priced. Today we decided to go to FANTINO,... More

Elegant service and surroundings. Fresh and imaginative cuisine. We enjoyed the chef's tasting menu with wine pairings. They were happy to modify a dish that is usually served as a hot appetizer to be served as an entree for our vegetarian daughter. Fabulous night of drinks and dining!

We did the food and wine festival tasting menu. We have eaten here last year and did the regular 5/6 course tasting menu and were very pleased. Everything was outstanding! We got the salmon which ended up having the skin cooked on, my bf usually won't eat it with skin, but gave it a try and loved every bite. I... More
