NEVER consistant.

I have gone to this restaurant for 4 years since I have moved to the area. It has changed for good and then bad. The location is lovely. If you want to have a relaxed breakfast or lunch there, its good. If you are a foodie and want decent food, this is not the place to go In Puerto Aventuras.... read more

My husband and I stayed at the Omni for our honeymoon, and on subsequent trips back to PA we always visit El Xenote for breakfast, even though we rent a condo. This year I was sad to see that some corners have been cut, although the outdoor seating area has been expanded. For two years, every breakfast came with a... More

I was there last night, because I was a local coming in from outside of puerto I was treated pretty badly. We didn't have a reservation and before we even ordered a drink we were rudely asked how we were planning on paying...not exactly the warmest welcome. I then ordered the chicken enchiladas with RED sauce. it came out with... More

We had a great experience here. The food was exceptional, and the service was even better. Our favorite waiter was Elio. We ate there every night for our four-night stay over Christmas. On our last night, he arranged a private dining area on the beach for us to enjoy our dinner.

Great outdoor seating - feet from the beach. Great fajitas, fresh fish, excellent breakfast. The chirozo was great in every dish we tried! Also, have not had better guacamole

We have been to Puerto Aventuras for many years and we were surprised that there was not a single review on this restaurant, and it has been there for many years. Located at the Omni hotel beach side, it has the perfect view to compliment your meal. We were there for dinner. In the evenings the lighting, decor, and soothing... More

Food is fresh and well-prepared. It isn't going to rock your world, but it's the sort of reliably good place you want in a hotel restaurant. The service will rock your world, though.

Reading the reviews here, it seems folks have this local restaurant combined and confused with the actual xenotes in the area. Those xenotes are for swimming, snorkeling, exploring ... this Xenote is the best restaurant in PA. Now, about the "restaurant", it is (in our opinion) the most pleasant and enjoyable place in PA to have meals. It is spacious,... More

Expensive....bland menu. The service is good, but this is a disappointing experience for the inflated price.

Very fresh and clean. Enjoyable to access fresh water lakes that we can swim in safely. Meet a Shamen who casts a spell or enchantment to ensure health, wealth and wellbeing for those who visit.
