This place was outstanding. An eye opening dinner. The waiter Cesar was outstanding, explained everything in detail and offered opinions when asked. First time there so we did the Kondesa experience. Every bite and every collaboration on the plates were perfectly though out and executed. Flavors were fresh and creative. Highly recommended. Also the Mezcal cocktails where outstanding with all...

After several days of average resort food, tourist traps and a few good tacos, it was such a pleasure to find Kondesa. My husband and I shared the tasting menu (A GREAT value for the $57 price) so we got to try a little of everything: Three types of appetizers, three entrees, and four desserts. The garden setting is pretty... More

Ok, first of all the enchiladas are the best I've ever had in my life. The first night, we split the enchiladas and the pescado del mar (also fantastico!), but the service was so terrible!! Waiters were standing around like they didn't know what to do! There were maybe 4 other tables w/customers that night, so we were really amazed... More

This is our second trip here and we were not disappointed again! The triple sampler of guacamole is a must. Very unique and each different. This trip we order the couples "extravaganza" which is an appetizer, main course platter and dessert for about $70 USD. Melt in your mouth is only way to describe it! 4 of our group went... More

After eating and loving its sister restaurant, Kinta, we had to try Kondesa and are happy we did. Our only regret is we did not find these two restaurants earlier! Best food, atmosphere and service we had all week at reasonable prices. All the entrees were the right size and great quality.

Probably the best dinner I've ever had! We took the couple menu and the white sangria, all in all 900 pesos, and it was sooooo delicious! Very creative and arranged with lots of love. Additional table water was for free. Truly, on of the best dinners I've ever experienced, you need to go there! We were lucky getting a table... More

It is a nice atmosphere outside with twinkling lights in the trees. My husband and I shared the Kondessa experience. It was wonderful with 3 appetizers, 3 entrees and 4 desserts to share. Everything is so fresh and tasty including the drinks. The waiters are very attentive and we even met the owner Kris and chatted with him. He was... More

My mother and I participated in a cooking class that owner/chef Kris has just started to offer through Kondesa. We really enjoyed it. I highly recommend taking the class as a way to learn more about the culinary culture in the area and to have a different experience than going to a water park or sitting around on the beach... More

Wow! Love love love this place. This was the highlight of our evening. Why go to a chain restaurant when you can go to Kondesa's? It's locally owned. The food is fresh, savory, and oh so satisfying. My husband and I ordered the "Kondesa Experience". Memorable, delightful meal. The flan with its corn kernels is out of this world. The... More
