Excellent food, service, and location

Beautiful dining setting next to the sea. Great service and classic but excellent dining choices. One of the culinary highlights of our trip.

This was the best restaurant I have ever eaten at. We had the most special Anniversary dinner ever. I wrote a longer review for the hotel that this restaurant is located in "Mi Amore" and I cant say enough wonderful things about the food, the staff and the atmosphere. It is a special place that will imprint it's self on... More

My husband and I went to the restaurant connected to the Mi Amore hotel. It was stunning and right on the ocean. I could hear the gentle waves crash as we ate and the eco-lux vibe was well paired with some quiet jazzy music. We were treated like royalty from the moment we walked in by friendly, smiling and welcoming... More

We took cab from La Zebra to check out this highly rated place and we were not disappointed. The food, drinks, service, and views are all exceptional. We tried fish tacos, coconut shrimp, grilled chicken club sandwich, grouper pan seared and oh, the chocolate molten dessert. Except for coconut shrimp we loved everything. We went back the second time as... More

The chef is a phenomenal cook. We were so impressed with the food we came back several times. We caught 'wahoo' on a fishing charter and asked the chef if he could especially cook us up some fine dining dishes. They were world class. Absolutely delicious 👌

We stayed at this hotel and breakfast was included everyday, but honestly - the prices are not bad and the breakfast foods are incredible! We tried them all over the course of 5 days. Pancakes by far are the best, but the breakfast stack was insanely awesome too. I would recommend this to all our friends for breakfast! They also... More

This is a cute restaurant overlooking both the sea and the Mi Amor hotel pool, which is very casual, relaxing, and well lit. The ambiance is very nice. The food is ok and what you'd expect at a 4 star restaurant but nothing special beyond that. The fried goat cheese with honey is recommended, and the salad is not. Limited... More

Hello Joya, Thank you for leaving your feedback. I am glad you enjoyed the stunning ambiance we have at Unico. It's a shame you didn't try more of our food, it seems you only tried the goat cheese with the local Mayan honey and fresh rosemary and a salad. I'm not sure which salad you tried as we have five...
