I had the fish which was delicious. Service and food impeccable. Olive oil tasting very fun. wanted to go back to do tasting but closed on Mondays.
We have eaten at Fantinos several years in a row when visiting Cancun. The Mediterranean food is excellent and the service is gracious, to say the least. It is an elegant dining room but not at all stuffy because the staff is so genuinely friendly. The tasting menu pairs wine with food and the matching is superb. Wine prices in... More
Where to start... Fontina is definitely an experience. Unfortunately, I'm not sure all the elements worked. The service is incredibly attentive but it quickly becomes old. Actually it almost becomes comical as you watch the servers continuously organizing themselves in huddles all over the restaurant in order to serve (or remove) plates in unison.

Fantino at the Ritz Carlton Hotel has everything going for it. The food is absolutely incredible. It is not one of those places that is very stuffy but has putrid food. Phenomenal Food!

This is not a negative for us. The food was excellent; they happily split an entree for my wife and... More
Had dinner for 17 in the private dining room for my wife's birthday. Samantha, who is amazing, pulled off a five course tasting menu with wine on a Saturday night during Spring break week without a hitch. Even found 17 staff and domes to do a simultaneous main course reveal. I don't put much stake in such things, but when... More
I can't say enough about this restaurant, food and service. Expensive but not pricey. The food was superb and the service extraordinary. If you are in Cancun and celebrating a special occasion this is the place!
