“Nice restaurant on the bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Incredible wine list, excellent service, the table side made caesar is a must! Offers indoor and outdoor seating, decor of the restaurant is beautiful! Our group of 9 was easily accommodated without a reservation, but it was a Sunday.

“Fresh seafood and an amazing presentation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Over the past ten years, we have eaten at Lorenzillo's more times than I can count. It is an expensive restaurant however, you will not be disappointed. The entire restaurant and bar are built on a dock in the calm bay across the street from the ocean. Because the restaurant faces west, the sunsets are absolutely spectacular. The wine selection is very good and everyone will find something they love on the the expansive menu. Often, we have been seated on the deck and a sudden rain or wind would make dining difficult. It's never a problem, the staff is happy to pull the sides down and secure them. We have brought our young daughters there as well. They were treated like princesses and loved to watch the large fish in the lagoon.

“best place for a fantastic fresh lobster EVER!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

This restaurant is amazing totally amazing!! This is one of the nicest restraints I have ever eaten in and that is some going to say I love my food and I am hard to please. We have eaten here at least twice on each of our visits to Cancun for the past 4 years! It is that nice and the service is amazing. I had prawns to start and the lobster in garlic butter and mashed potatoes for my main meal with a bottle of wine. Yes it is a little pricey but if I am honest it is well worth every penny.... fantastic meal, excellent service and your over a lagoon so the majority of the times you get to see them feeding the crocodiles and alligators which just makes it even better. I would advise to sit inside though and not outside until you like to share your food with flies. To be honest i chose my own lobster as well which i also think is a brilliant touch.

“Very Good Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

We ate here on our last night in Cancun. The food, service and setting were all wonderful. In my opinion, however, a bit pricey. But if you're prepared for that and want to spend a lovely evening in Cancun, this is a good spot.
