We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at La Habichuela Sunset. The gravel terrace with a small stream running through it was beautiful. Although vegetation blocks your view of the actual sunset over the lagoon from the terrace, the sky and clouds were still gorgeous. The food was all very good. Our favorite was the Tikin Xic grouper. The magician making the... More

My wife and I went here for my Birthday and it was a very nice experience. You cannot tell from the street, but the building and the property are amazing. The best time to come is on show night (Monday, Wed, and Friday, but check to make sure when you are making your reservation). Get there around 7:15 to 7:45... More

Beautiful restaurant with sunset views, indoor and outdoor dining. Great Mayan show (free) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm. Food was excellent, service very good, great wine list, and you must try the Mayan Coffee. This is a show in itself and delicious!

Great seafood- I had the grilled shrimp, my husband had the shrimp, lobster and fillet...we loved it! The show was a nice addition to top off the evening. Service was great. It is expensive but worth it!

One of the nicer settings in Cancun from our experience, the room is beautiful, and the courtyard lagoon is very nice setting. I had the Grouper Tikin Xic, which was not Grouper, maybe Tilapia, the fillet was too thin to be a Grouper. A bit on the expensive side, but you pay for the setting. Service started out good, but...

We were seated at the top of the restaurant since I'm in a wheelchair, and therefore were unable to see 99% of the Mayan show, which is outside, on the terrace, down many steps with no access... That said, the food was very very good, and the service was gracious. I would recommend that anyone dining here be able to... More

We have been to the downtown La Habichuela restaurant many times during previous visits to Cancun. The La Habichuela Sunset venue was new since our last visit so we decided to give it a try, based on our previous experience with the company and the desire to avoid a 45 minute, sometime-harrowing cab ride into downtown. From Avenue Kulkulcan it... More

We sat outside and it was a beautiful romantic setting overlooking the lagoon. (the inside was lovely too) Food was yummy with many unusual Mayan, Caribbean and island flavors. Service was good and the show was bizarre but fun (Mayan dancers acting out sacrifice dances) Within walking distance from our hotel (The Westin Lagunamar) it was a fun find.
