After nearly 30 years of vacationing in Cancun we finally tried La Habichuela - Downtown. At first the drive there and location was a bit off-putting but the restaurant itself was a hit. Beautiful decor throughout the entryway lead to an upscale dining room and, even better, a fantastic outside garden area full of trees, Mayan sculpture and tons of atmosphere. The service was very attentive and our waiter, Muse, was so knowledgeable and passionate about the menu we were hard pressed to decide from the quite large menu. Ultimately we all had the Super Surf and Turf which had a very good sized filet, grilled shrimp and a grilled lobster tail all served with three flavored dipping butters. Fabulous! The desserts and Mayan coffee prepared tableside were a hit as well. Kudos to the wait staff, the kitchen and especially Sr Muse. We will be back!
