Stay at Ylang Ylang and eat there!

Great seafood and vegetarian and vegan options on the menu. Incredible setting. Gracious service. Dinner and breakfast are included with the stay at the Ylang Ylang resort. Very romantic options available, also great cocktails and wine list.

I've had 10 meals at this restaurant during my 4-day stay, and every meal has met or exceeded expectations. The fish entrees at dinner are phenomenal, and make this place a must for foodies. The wait staff is extremely friendly, and the restaurant is situated next to the beach, for an overall beautiful dining experience.

First, this place is really difficult to get to. What was billed as "just past where the beach begins" ended up with us getting our car stuck in the sand for about 20 minutes and then having to walk 10 minutes beyond that. The place is nice, and aims at the sort of all-inclusive resort vibe that I go to... More

Dear Roboticarm, Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. Seeing as you’ve been to Montezuma quite a few times, you should have known that you cannot drive to Ylang Ylang. There are also signs on the road indicating that you cannot drive on the beach and that getting stuck is at your own risk. We are also... More

Ylang Ylang is a Luxury lifestyle restaurant and hotel on the beach in Paradise with an offering for the most sophisticated travelers available year round. A short walk along the beach after you leave the quaint town of Montezuma you will get to this amazing place where friendly people treat you royaly, 5/5

Everything is organic and delicious. Christian was very polite and all the staff very attentive but not overbearing. I had the best lemonade with mint and ginger ever. They even show you a list of all the local animals in the area incase you spot one you know what they are. Right in front of the ocean, very peaceful.

We ate at the Ylang Ylang restaurant several times during our 4 day stay at the resort. It was wonderful. The restaurant is open air with a great view of the ocean and jungle, the waitstaff was friendly, attentive, and spoke English very well, and the food was delicious. My family, including my young children, enjoyed everything we ordered from... More

With a view of the waves and the friendliest servers on the planet, each meal at the Ylang Ylang restaurant was a joy. Breakfast was my personal favorite with crepes made with fresh fruit. Watch out for the blue jays, they swoop down on your table trying to steal your sugar packets.

Adequate portions, prompt service, delicious fruit drinks, and reasonable prices. Also, the cooks and servers are friendlier than most. Christian took pictures for our group so that we could all be included in the pictures.
