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.

By far my favorite restaurant on the island. Every time I go there the food is GREAT and the service is the best anywhere on the Island. 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.

The ambulance if the restaurant is great. Very well put together. The staff is very nice, but service was just average. The food was good but not great. One put off was the cans of OFF they put on each table. After a while, all you smelled was the OFF that people were spraying to keep the mosquito off them.... More

My family has vacationed in Cozumel for many years now and Kondesa is the best. The ambiance is unmatched and the food is fresh, light and delicious. This is the one place you don't want to miss!

We met some friends from Cozumel here for dinner one night while we were staying there. Just a block away from the highly touristic bars and gift shops on the main drag, when you enter the garden of Kondesa, it is like you are transported to another world. We started with a drink at the bar, and sat just taking... More
