Great food, even better service

Went to Kondesa with my boyfriend yesterday for our last night in Cozumel. Everything about the experience was great. A very romantic setting for a date night dinner. The cocktails were great with fun spins on tequila drinks. The food was great Mexican food with a modern twist. I am a vegetarian... read more

We hit Coz a couple times of year and have been eye balling this place for quite some time since it opened. We heard great things. I read great things. And then we went there for the first time mid May of '15. Perhaps we just expected too much but for the prices they charge, we really expected something special.... More

First off I have to tell you that my boyfriend and I are 100% plant-based for the last four years. We gave up eating all meat, dairy and fish. It was not easy at first as we still love good tasting food! And so I was completely thrilled when Kondesa was very understanding of our needs. They served us the... More

The atmosphere is nice but quite expensive. Small portions. The dishes are nice but this is down town Houston prices with out the Down Town Houston favor.

I ate at this restaurant with friends while in Cozumel. The food was okay, not great, but those of us who paid with credit cards all had false charges show up on our statement shortly thereafter. We were easily able to isolate the source of the problem because it was the only place we visited where we could not use... More

We ended up at Kondesa after a recommendation and absolutely loved it. It does have bright pink decor and is kind of funky, but it's in a great garden setting and has nice waitstaff. The food was exceptional as well as the presentation.

Since the last time we were on the island, we always make it a point to stop here and Kinta, as we always have an excellent meal and service. The sopa de tortilla, kondesa kakes (eat lionfish!) was great, as were the various fish preps (pepitas, zuma, and tomatillo) The ambiance is perfect, and we love to watch the cat... More

Very romantic setting with the lights in the trees and the Thievery Corporation style music. Food presentation was great. The fresh made churros with a scoop of ice cream are not to be missed. Yum!

Great guacamole and they can make any dish (within reason) veggie if needed. Ate twice there in one week, every person in our group was pleased with the quality of service and food.
