Belgian food in a romantic setting

An excellent and romantic restaurant on the lagoon facing the east. Food is a combination of Belgium/European and Mexican. They pull it off nicely.

Every single time I have been to this amazing restaurant I have had the best food. Every single person I have taken has loved it. Locals in Cancún love taking our guests to this restaurant, so unexpected given its location. You must try it.

We were celebrating one of my best friends 60th birthday & EDIER made her day & our stay very special. Daniel, Omar, & the bar staff gave us unbelievable service our entire stay (4 days).

This is always on our list of restaurants when we visit Cancun. We have been here many times and were once again not disappointed even though we were a group of 17.

This is a lovely restaurant. It is a bit difficult to find. We took the bus from our hotel (The Westin Regina). The key is to get off at the stop next to the Intercontinental El Presidente Hotel. The street it is on Quetzel, is off the main drag and goes to a small hotel called the Hotel Imperial Laguna.... More

I highly recommend the La Palapa Belga. The special Grouper and bucket of mussels were fantastic. Everything else was also delicious including the Lime Pie. Great views of the lagoon. Great service.

Wonderful jazzy dinner on the lagoon. Scallops with asparagus, grouper with ratatouille, salmon carpaccio and grilled tuna. Food was first rate as was the service. Lovely time of evening with a cooling breeze over the lagoon. Creme broulee and tiramisu completed the meal for two. All this and excellent jazz musicianship from Kenny G to Charlie Parker and even some... More

This restaurant turned out to be a hidden gem that was suggested by our resort, Coral Mar. It is located on the lagoon with lights of Blvd. Kulkulcan across the water. There are tables at waters edge and a gentle breeze keeps one cool. The food was exceptional on both visits. The service was also very good and staff congenial.... More
