My best meal since a week. Food prepared and served with care, the stuff was really pleasant and informative. The garden was quite charming. I hope for visiting it again.

Decent restaurant away from the busy street over looking the ocean and ferry terminal. The food itself is good specially the dessert. Portions of the mains could be more generous. Not a place if you are hungry and want to eat well.

This restaurant is owned and operated by the owner of Kinta's. There were six people in our party and we all ordered different menu items. The menu items are different but the food is just as good if not better than Kinta's. My wife had a special that was recommended by the waiter. I had shrimp. The portion sizes are... More

This was one of my favorite restaurants in Cozumel. They have an excellent special for couples that gives you a variety of appetizers, main courses, and desserts. It was great. The waiter was funny and very knowledgeable of everything on the menu. I would highly recommend Kondesa.

Just off the beaten track and an absolute highlight during a recent week long stay in Cozumel. By far the best food in Cozumel with excellent service which strikes the balance between attentive yet unobtrusive. Portion size is really good and whilst the menu may seem small, its because they do a few things very well rather than lots of... More

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!

Kondesa stands out in Cozumel, catering to locals and foodies offering sophisticated Mexican in a peaceful garden in the middle of town. While I have nothing against fajitas and nachos, Kondesa's use of original ingredients and combinations were very welcome. I also appreciate that the owner and chef both did the rounds (separately) to check in on us.

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.
