We came here for our honeymoon. We did the tasting menu with champagne pairing. It was incredible. Splurge and book the private wine room. It's an experience you won't forget!

From start to finish this restaurant was beyond amazing. Champagne upon arrival and spoiled rotten all evening. I have never had the opportunity to enjoy a seven course vegan, plant-based meal and I was not expecting to find that here in Mexico. I was mistaken! From the portobello butter, to the unique gazpacho and on to the delicious assortments of... More

Our server was really friendly and nice. He was attentive, even gave us a little show for dessert which involved dry ice. The drinks were also good but the sushi was just okay.

This restaurant is located in the lower floor of the Grand Melia. The menu is created by a Spanish chef ( Martin Berasategui ). I have been there several times and have always enjoyed it ! Try the set menu with wine pairing. The food is creative and consists of excellent Basque nouvelle cuisine. Each item is presented with an... More

Believe me, it is worth the money. It's 65 USD to get the tasting menu, and I strongly suggest you to pair it with the premium wine 100 USD or the normal wine 66 USD. I took the premium wine pairing and my fiance took the normal one. First of all, the service is amazing, you will feel like a... More

We had reservations for dinner at a Tempo on a Wednesday evening. We were dressed appropriately, me with white slacks, collard shirt and sandals. A typical beach town outfit. My wife was also very nicely dressed with white slacks and a lovely top with sweater. They wouldn't seat us. They said my shoes were inappropriate! Are they serious? This is... More

We made a dinner reservation for Tempo Restaurant in Cancun. After checking with the hotel concierge regarding dress code and being assured that smart casual ( collared shirt & slacks) was appropriate for any resort restaurant in Cancun, we arrived at our designated reservation time only to be humiliated and turned away by the Maitre D. Interesting that there were... More

Exceptional in every way! had a great selection of wines and champagne! Their champagnes were reasonably priced so also a bonus in this part of the world! Definitely would recommend anyone... More

Overall a good place to go. Tasting menu was 10 or 12 courses with lots of amuse bouches and palate cleansers thrown in. French sort of cuisine is on offer that is very labor-intensive and beautiful even if not amazing to taste. Sommelier was visibly disappointed that I didn't get the wine pairing; this was a big of high-pressure situation.... More

The food at Tempo was beyond amazing. I tried the tasting menu . From the first dish (tuna tartar) I was in heaven. Everything was like velvet and beautiful to look at and taste. I honestly cannot say I've ever had better food anywhere. I'm not exaggerating. Nothing disappointed and everything exceeded standards. Our waiter (Carlos) was exceptional and attentive... More
