Island charm!

As a foodie this place is great! And atmosphere is charming and local! From beef to seafood and chicken ... Appetizers to main course and dessert this establishment offers quality food and preparation with moderate prices.

We loved the setting of our meal in their garden which has lots of pretty lights. The staff were attentive and the food presentation was excellent. We enjoyed our meals but for the extra cost we didn't feel we got enough. The flavours were nice but nothing special.

My husband and I chose Kondesa for our "fancy" evening out while we spent a week in Cozumel. The setting is beautiful and the staff was impeccable. I wish we would have viewed a menu prior to being seated, though. I'm not particularly adventurous with my palate, however my husband is always willing to try something new. We both agreed... More

Delicious and interesting food a few blocks back from the ocean and tourist strip. Some interesting twists on Mexican favourites (such as guac with fruit and bacon, strangely very nice!) and excellently cooked fish of the day offered with a variety of sauces and sides. Very friendly and attentive waiting staff made it a pleasure. Well worth a visit, thanks... More

The garden setting with the giant tree is beautiful and amazingly enough in that setting in the tropics there may bugs so be prepared. Mojitos and appetizer In guak we trust (guacamole 3 ways) started our meal. It is a large portion for 2 people and could easily be split 4 or 6 ways. Very good but I thought it... More

From the first step into Kondesa our experience was wonderful. Carlos welcomed us warmly, explained with detail and excitement each drink, appetizer and entree they offer. Each staff member treated us with the same care and attention. We chose the Kondesa Experience ($695 pesos) which serves two, a sampling of four appetizers, three main dishes and four desserts. Everything was... More

The setting is fun. Just as if you are in a large garden. The food is very good and the presentation is beautiful. Fine Dinning!

We found Kondesa on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a whirl. Little did we know that it would be one of the highlights of our entire trip! A beautiful secret garden, with ancient tree, donning tin and wicker lanterns that created an unforgettable ambiance. Our server Daniel, was extremely personable and very knowlegable about the menu. He answered... More
