Great Restaurant - we were hungry and after a few days of resort food we absolutely loved this place... really tasty, interesting menu and great service.. just go!!! I think it is probably the best restaurant in Cozumel - recommended to us by someone who has lived here for a while.

The only mistake we made going to this restaurant was because we always had too much food at other places we only ordered the entrée. This is an outside restaurant, with secluded seating in a courtyard, giving the impression you are the only people there. Our server was very knowledgeable about how the food was prepared, and you have the... More

You ever been somewhere where no matter what you order it's the best thing on the menu? This is that place. Service is flamboyant in telling you how wonderful they will be but we had ask for our food. There was some scurrying around and our food came out with some silly excuse that it was a different station for... More

Yeah, I'm kind of a hipster foodie. What can you do? I recognize my demographic. Kondesa is perfect for anyone looking for a craft cocktail, and simple but amazing food. I had the fish with zucchini sauce, with roasted pumpkin seeds. The guac trio is also amazing---guac with fruit and bacon, guac with pineapple, and roasted guac. Yes please. My... More

Lovely atmosphere and the food is outstanding. The wait staff is efficient and friendly. Sat under a huge banyan tree and listened to the breezes blow thru the leaves. This was my third visit to Kendesa and I certainly hope I have more opportunities to eat there.

We eNjoyed our dinner at Kondesa. The shrimp was excellent and the fish was fresh and well prepared. The vegetables with the shrimp was not quite up to par, but the veggies with the fish were good.
