NOT WORTH IT. The view is the only thing worth something. Seafood wasn't fresh. If they claim it is, it was extremely overcooked. I got lobster and shrimp, broiled. Rubbery. My husband got the lobster and shrimp stuffed filet. That was ok. They weren't able to accommodate us sitting outside for the sunset despite many, many open tables. I wouldn't... More

During our 9 nights Cancun stay we visited this place 3 times for dinner. All evenings we had table on their veranda just a 2 meters above the lagoon- and this restaurant became a highlight of our holiday. Food is fresh and delicious, signature salads and exotic lobsters in about 10 different versions. Staff is attentive and polite ( as... More

We were on our way to another restaurant when a big rain storm started and we raced into Lorenzillo's for shelter. After 20 minutes and no letting up we decided to eat there. We were with my 5-year-old son so I wasn't sure we'd find anything he'd eat but they had a kids menu with chicken fingers and french fries!... More

When I walked into Lorenzillo's I did not expect such an upper class restaurant. I was delightfully surprised. The ambiance was great. Just right so you could spend a quiet time enjoying your meal. I had Surf n Turf. the Surf was delicious, tender, tasty, but the lobster was to die for. I did not feel rushed to gulp down... More

Well, actually I ate the lobster. The Croc ate the shell. Pleasant, nautical atmosphere with friendly staff. Picked our lobster from the tank. Waiter warned us that ordering that way was pricey, that ordering just the tail was the better way to go. However, it was our splurge night so we were all in. Spiny lobster is hard to come... More

I've been coming to Lorenzillo's for many years, it's a classic when you come to Cancún. It's not the newest or the trendiest, but if you want to eat fresh lobster or good seafood this is the place. When you come in the restaurant you can see a boat full of live lobsters, a fish tank with live clams, and... More

The restaurant that holds taste, flavors, sensations, history, tradition, evolution and modernity all at the same time.

Brilliant details at every turn only add to Lorenzillo's uniqueness. From the entrance one can admire the hand carved wooden pillars that elude to the crustacean that has come to be the favorite of its world-wide customers: the lobster.
