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

Great specials! It's an odd location but worth getting there it's on the lagoon and daily specials are always excellent. Service is very good. They will call you a taxi

The place is hard tomfind but worth a visit. Its located n the lagoon waterfront with a nice view of the Hotel zone. To enter you have to cross a small motel. The time I was there they had an excellent musician playing annassortment of jazz and balads. Food is tasty and welll prepared, without pretenses Service is friendly.

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.
