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

This restaurant was very quaint, beutiful court yard setting and really good food and drinks. A little bit more expensive than the average restaurant but better than the average too! Great for families or couples and not touristy.

Meals are prepared based on the fish of the day. Sea Bass was our catch and they prepared some great food around it. They offered about 6 different variations on the fish alone. They do offer other items as well. Drinks were excellent too.

The owner does a great job in creating a relaxing and family friendly atmosphere. I was just there for my wedding and they did the food for the rehearsal dinner and it was... More

This was our second trip to Kondesa, and we will definitely be returning. The restaurant is set in an outdoor tropical garden, with beautiful lighting and lovely music. Our waiter Cesar was very friendly, helpful, and attentive. We started off with a couple of drinks made with mezcal, which were both delicious. We ordered the Kondesa Experience, which is a... More

It's eating in a tropical garden that helps make this place special. Makes me wonder what a rain shower would do, but that has not happened. Service was impeccable. Entrees were well presented and delicious.

Wonderful restaurant! Our waiter was Cesar and he was excellent. Very friendly and explained everything on the menu and even gave recommendations! We ordered the enchiladas and the serving was plenty for two people to share. We also had the Lion Fish cakes and they were great! Definitely would come back. Only downside is that the restaurant is outside so... More

Food, service and atmosphere was very very good. Our waiter Caesar was delightful. And so nice to have a dinner with vegetables! A very good choice and reasonably priced.
