From the first step into Kondesa our experience was wonderful. Carlos welcomed us warmly, explained with detail and excitement each drink, appetizer and entree they offer. Each staff member treated us with the same care and attention. We chose the Kondesa Experience ($695 pesos) which serves two, a sampling of four appetizers, three main dishes and four desserts. Everything was... More

We found Kondesa on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a whirl. Little did we know that it would be one of the highlights of our entire trip! A beautiful secret garden, with ancient tree, donning tin and wicker lanterns that created an unforgettable ambiance. Our server Daniel, was extremely personable and very knowlegable about the menu. He answered... More

This restaurant is so cute, well decorated and a great escape. We akm go stay away from touristy attractions and this was a good pick for a nice night out. As I recall there was a lot of mosquito's so bring some spray but the food and service are amazing !

This restaurant is a Cozumel gem. The unique atmosphere, tasty modern Mexican food, and exceptional waitstaff not only result in a memorable, dinning experience but makes you forget any troubles that may have been weighing on your mind.

Upon entering Kondesa from a side street in Cozumel, one enters a virtual rain forest atmosphere. It was zen like and completely relaxing. We had a total of three servers throughout the evening, and all were very enthusiastic about the restaurant and the food. For appetizers we ordered the guacamole three ways and the lionfish potato cakes. The base guac... More

Had read good things and decided to give it a try and really glad we did. Food was delicious. The four of us ordered different dishes and were all really pleased. The lion fish appetizer was a great choice and went well with the unique Margaritas, tamarin and cucumber.

What I love the most is the atmosphere and lighting! Always a stop for us on vacation in Cozumel. Food is great as well! Will be going back next trip.
