We ate here on one of our last nights. I was expecting something quite a bit better, but first off, they put us in a table in the back of the restaurant near an exit, not the best seating I've ever had, but not enough to sway me just yet. We ordered drinks...again, not the best I've had in Cancun,... More

We had dinner at this very good Italian restaurant. We had excellent pizza and homemade pasta. The only criticism is that with so many good restaurants overlooking the bay why choose a restaurant in a mall overlooking the main street. So I would suggest picking one of the other restaurants in town with beautiful views of the bay unless it... More

Cenacolo is our favorite Italian restaurant in Cancun. Located in the Kulkucan plaza, the resturant has a nice atmosphere and you can wtach the pasta being made through the window. IT offers a bar nad often gives a discount to hotel guests staying in Cancun.

Wine prices were obscene, better to stay with National Drinks. Calamari stuffed with shrimp in a hosen sauce was both unusual and excellent. Spinach salad with mushrooms and slices of cheeses in balsamic vinegar was tasty. Super thin crust pizza with 3 toppings was really good and really pricey. Great view of the main street and traffic.
