Our dinner experience: set way back through a dark gate and unlit walkway, you'll find a hidden oasis of candle-lit chunky wooden chairs and tables all nestled in the sand under a canopy of dark wooden beams and vines. Oh my god. Beautiful.
While the rest of Monetzuma is zooming around on ATVs on a dusty, loud, stinky road, we were here in this tranquil place where the menus are hand written (beautifully), the staff perfectly attentive, and the vibe was exactly what we needed. Did we walk through some kind of wormhole to get here?
The food was excellent. All items on the menu were clearly made with intention and attention to detail. And yet the price for this 5-star food was the same as the food at the other (and some even very crappy) establishments.
In a nutshell, if you want creative food (not classic meat & potatoes), vegetarian options, and an atmosphere that makes you think you're very privileged to be there, then this is the place for you.
