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

This is truly a five star restaurant and I can't wait to return. Service was outstanding and food quality was second to none. It is a must that eat in this restaurant when visiting Cancun. Located in the Ritz Carlton - what more could I say.

What a great surprise for us. This was our first time at Fantino and had an outstanding dinner. My wife and I each ordered the Tasting Menu with wine pairing. Each course was great, but the Pistachio Crusted Sea Bass in Tomato Sauce was killer. I had to have that recipe, it was outstanding. Chef Vazquez and his team made... More
