Quiet and tucked away. Pleasant setting sitting outside and looking across the lagoon. Very good french style menu, the only French restaurant we found in Cancun. Prices good value. Very pleasant entertainment from a saxophone player.

Knew the day would come when I would have to go below 3 stars and, sadly, here it is. We chose this because one of our party is European and this is listed as Swiss, Belgian, French etc. It is a little difficult to find, you have to go through a motel and over a bridge in a pool to... More

This is a reasonably priced fine dining restaurant that you would not find on your own. It is on Ave. Quetzal and is situated on the west side of the lagoon so that from the palapa you see Av. Kukulkan across the lagoon. Take bus to Presidential and walk down Quetzal or the cabs know where it is. Everything here... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our waterfront dinner on the terrace of this hidden neighborhood gem. Our waiter Jorge was so lovely and accommodating, the food was great as were the drinks. It was great to get off the beaten tourist path and find something so charming

We went with 10 people and EVERYONE loved their dinner. I had the tuna and it was excellent, but each person picked something different and it was all good. Very small, nice place.

Got the mussels as recommended but they were too dry and wasn't good. Other then that the escargot and fish of the day was pretty decent.

Not easy to find but has a quiet out of the way atmosphere. New owner, same chef. Food is still pretty good.

It's a little hard to find so take a taxi. The setting by the water is rustic and peaceful. The food is good--I like the French onion soup and the pork tenderloin. Service can be hit or miss, but we always return.
