Delicious

It is not the usual traditional Mexican food...taco and fietas. Everything was very tasty but the tequila shrimp dish was the best. Good food and great service.

We expected excellent traditional Mexican food that we could get in PV but it was not. Lacking flavor and fresh taste of local seafood. For excellent local food, go to PV.

Very special blending of flavors... we both liked everything about our appetizer, tortilla soup, and main meals of tequila chile shrimp, and Chilean Sea Bass.... perfect!

This would have been okay in Boston or even SF but there is better Mexican food down the street at any number of spots for a fraction of the price, and a two- buck taxi ride from the resort. The dining room is lovely, service was great, margaritas were fine but selection was limited and food was very pedestrian. We... More

Try the guacamole fresh prepared at your table, its a meal in itself. The fish and mexican dishes are very well prepared and very good. The soups are very good. Eat outdoors it is very nice. Outstanding service all leads to a very nice meal.

While this restaurant nay not be as authentic as street fare, they do an exceptional job creating gourmet versions of some local favorites. The table dude guacamole wasn't as spicy as I like but was fun to watch and delicious. The tortilla soup will be something I crave for weeks to come. I definitely recommend a dinner here if you...

On arrival day at the Grand Luxxe, four of us decided to have a light dinner at Epazote. We ordered mainly from the Starters and found them to be carefully prepared and delicious. There was some confusion regarding the waiter understanding our preferences and since we were the only guests at 8:45PM he seemed to be interested in going home.... More

This was my favorite restaurant at this resort! The food was so good and the waiters here were eager to explain what was in the dishes and make recommendations according to my tastes. Dimitri, the manager, went out of his way to visit my table often to ensure everything was perfect. If you visit this resort, don't miss Epazote it... More

I would agree with some of the reviewers that this isn't authentic mexican cuisine. It's more upscale kind-of Mexican for gringos-but that being said it was still good. We found the food to be fresh, inventive, and tasty. Service was professional and attentive. We ate out on the patio on a beautiful night and the big problem was the lack... More
