A revisit did not disappoint. Quiet setting with a view of the water and the night sky. Lovely background music. I appreciated the various light, delectable sides that accompanied my fresh fish entre. Typical of this venue is artistic presentation as shown in the photo. Not normally a margarita-drinker because of tequila's aftertaste, that was not true of this one... More

I had the American thin crust pizza and it was delicious. Staff was fast and friendly and the early evening atmosphere was beautiful with the dolphins jumping in the water just across the sidewalk.

Ambience is everything but the freshest homemade pasta is the "sweet life". A beautiful evening under the twinkling lights, with prompt service. Eggplant parmesan was spot on. Pasta's were customized and fresh - pasta perfection, and the fish platter was divine. It was a beautiful evening under the stars, table side visits by dogs (which were welcomed), wonderful people.

Friends and I ate here several times during a month long stay in Puerto Aventuras. The food is excellent; you can't go wrong no matter what you order. The fresh panella made to order is suberb. Friendly, effiicent service and reasonable prices. I would highly recommend.

My husband ordered the special rice and seafood.... ( the name escape of the dish escapes me, but the gentlemen who sat us... More

We ordered pizza - could not believe how long we had to wait after ordering. Actually thought about leaving. Pizza was just OK. Roughly 2 hours for pizza - ridiculous.

I don't know about you but I go to a restaurant for the food, the atmosphere helps but the food is first and foremost. Something that I can't make at home from a professional trained chef. Well this was one of the worst meals that we had on our trip. I bought some aflredo sauce from the Chedruai and it... More

We had been advised by our concierge at The Excellence Riviera Cancun to check out Puerto Adventuras for supper if we were on a day trip out that way. His advice was spot on. We walked around the marina where dolphins were playing and came across this restaurant. I'm glad we stopped here. The food was terrific and well priced... More
