A very relaxing evening at this restaurant. The Kondesa Enchiladas was a light fish enchilada that was amazing. The cheese appetizer with chorizo was also very good. It came with habenero cream sauce which was great on everything. A little spicy but to be expected. The Kamaron Mezcal was also amazing. Overall an extremely satisfying meal in a hidden gem.... More

This place is beautiful and the food was amazing. I just travelled here 2 weeks ago and it was one of the highlights of our entire trip and by far the best food we had in Cozumel! The drinks are fabulous also. Excellent service and if you happen to go on a dj night, the music was very hip!

My wife and I are foodies and we were completely entertained by their special sample meal. Fun, creative small dishes and enjoyable wines. Beautiful interior courtyard. Don't be fooled by the plastic laminate menus, this wonderful restaurant is very special and top notch. The best in El Centro in our opinion.

Being able to eat outside in a romantic restaurant with kids was really awesome. We ate very well and our kids enjoyed their meals, plus the decoration was just perfect to relax in a quiet garden. Love everything.

We stumbled across this place late in our trip and wish we had earlier as we would have gone back! The outdoor seating and atmosphere is wonderful and it does not feel like you're in the middle of the city. The food was delicious and the cocktails were wonderful and creative. This was one of the best places we ate... More

A wonderful meal as always. I tried what I believe is a new addition to the menu called "Firewater". I had never seen it on the menu before. It's listed as an appetizer but I had it for my main course. The description on their menu is "Aguachile with fish and shrimp in a tomatillo-lime broth, cucumber, cilantro, red onion,... More

I have visited Kondesa Restaurant several times since it opened in 2010. It is one of my favorites on the island. The food is always top quality, the staff is fantastic and the owners are always welcoming. They have created an atmosphere that is unparalleled on the island. Thank you to Kris and Jason for always making us feel welcome.

This and its sister restaurant, Kinta, are probably the two foodie restaurants on the island. I live in New York, and I was still impressed.

Not the best we had just in Cozumel, no, the best of our entire trip through yucatan!!! Cesar, our waiter was funny, attentive, charming and informative. Food was delish, drinks were lovely, desserts were top of the line. And we are not easily impressed! Go. Enjoy. You will not regret it. I do not condemn a person easily, but if... More
