For a beach town, cancun has vanishingly few places to relax and eat with a lovely view of the sea. Luckily, there is Dolcemente! We stayed next door in Casa Maya, conveniently a 5 second walk across the beach, and loved this place so much we went about 5 times in our two week stay. Food is really reasonably priced... More

Stayed at the Casa Maya hotel and decided to give this restaurant a try. Location is great on the beach front and overlooks the blue sea. We were a party of four. Sadly we found both the food and service to be mediocre, enough said.

Oceanfront. Good food. Nice people. Salad- different than in USA. If you order Cesar salad do not expect what you get in USA. You will get 3 or 4 leaves of lettuce sprinkled with some dressing.

This restaurant was recommended by our resort. Upon arrival at the front entrance there was old food and trash that should have been cleaned up. The restaurant was empty and the view tempted us to stay. We had a below average meal with an excellent view! We are from NY and are used to great Italian food. Our meal started... More

To address the concern that the restaurant is difficult to find, it can be. That said, look for the big Mexican flag (you know, the one you can see from like 10km away) around km 5 on the Hotel Zone strip, and there is a little side-street on the north end. From there, you should be able to find the... More

Wow is all I can say! It was out last night in Cancun when we visited this restaurant and it couldn't have ended our fantastic trip any better. The location is gorgeous with the sounds of the waves and smell of salt water adding great atmosphere to this little gem. Waiter was lovely and he was very efficient also. I... More

This restaurant is located right on the beach, has delicious food and great service. It is a little hard to see initially, you need to walk down the driveway a bit before you see the entrance.

Ate there our first day in Cancun and it was conveniently located next to our hotel Casa Maya. Excellent food, service and view of the water.

A wonderful dinner overlooking the sea in a covered yet open dining room. Located in a larger building next to the Casa Mayan Hotel, this is a find. Nicely decorated. Excellent food (try the lasagna, you'll love it), many wines, super service. Best meal of our 2-week visit to Mexico.
