Dinner with girl friends

It felt weird to go for Italian in Mexico, but I would highly recommend the pasta primavera (something I would usually never order). The vegetables/sauce/bread are incredibly fresh and have tremendous flavor. Although this is 'one of the fancier' restaurants, I was able to walk there on the beach... read more

It felt weird to go for Italian in Mexico, but I would highly recommend the pasta primavera (something I would usually never order). The vegetables/sauce/bread are incredibly fresh and have tremendous flavor. Although this is 'one of the fancier' restaurants, I was able to walk there on the beach without shoes and dine comfortably.

I really did not want to have dinner at Posada Margherita but I'm so glad my husband ignored me - what a fantastic restaurant. Infact, so good we went back twice (we never do that on holiday). The lead up to the restaurant and interior is simple and elegant. The maitre de was smiley, friendly, welcoming and informative (and he... More

Posada Margerita was on our list, and we managed to,get in the first night. We had to wait for a table, and enjoyed some great cocktails during the wait. As the wait became quite long, we asked if we could have our food in the waiting/bar area, which was not a problem. The waiter was great (Italian guy from Verona),... More

The food was beautiful and taste amazing. The restaurant is a beach front restaurant and I went at the beginning of February so it was rather windy and at times chilly. The decor is rustic and trendy this is a very cute place to dine with friends or a s/o and get a good photo. You must order a green... More

The handmade pasta was scrumptious and the wine was just right. This is a chic, hip, gorgeous, special restaurant. When you walk in, you realize you've walked into a very special place. The decor is perfect and the food is really, really good. The seafood pasta and mushroom pasta were excellent...This restaurant is pricey and doesn't take credit cards, so... More

This place is a must!! I have been to Italy over 30 times and the good here is even better than in Italy. The pasta was perfect. Loved the burrata cheese. The fish cooked in salt water truly amazing!! Did not like the deserts.

I've been here many times and the food and service have consistently been great over the years. Not this time. Not enough wait staff and our food was cold. After the standard menu info, a bottle of wine delivered and our order taken, nobody but bussers. They were packed as usual, but the service was severely lacking. My pasta was... More

I was very taken with Posada M's decor - it's very chic and attractively done. (Beware the mosquitoes who inhabit the trendy gardens.) What I wasn't thrilled about was the food. I'm gluten intolerant so can't eat the home made pastas Posada M is known for. My fellow dining companions had a really good meal of pasta but my gloopy,... More

Classic turist trap. If you are a european you get better pasta at your local pastaplace. The worst thing about our visit was the terrible service. We had to remind our grumpy waiter two times about our wine and when we got our food they forgot to give us knife and fork. When I finally got my check they had... More
