We really love the atmosphere of this restaurant and so we chose it for our Christmas dinner. We also really love the owner Daniel. He is the consummate host at all of his places. My husband loves the Kondesa Kakes which is lionfish wrapped in a potato cake. I feel like the potato takes away from the taste of the... More

My wife and I had dinner at Kondesa last night. We made reservations through the restaurant web page but didn't need to have them even on a Saturday night. We ordered a pitcher of margaritas which was tasty but not very strong. I started with the lion fish cakes which were excellent and worth the trip to Kondesa. My wife... More

In December I had a great experience at Kondesa'a Wednesday cooking class with Chef Oscar. It was a hands on class giving me the opportunity to make the sauces and dishes Chef demonstrated. The first treat was a signature margarita rimmed with Tajin pepper flakes rather than salt. It did not disappoint. Chef shares some of his "secrets" for outstanding... More

Excellent meal. This is a must-visit restaurant in Cozumel. Absolute everything is delicious. The patio seating is spacious and lovely. It was extra special having the resident cat visit our table periodically.

My wife and I went for a romantic dinner but were disappointed. The seating is open concept (no walls) and personally felt like we were in museum installation. There was no sense of privacy. I ordered the Tuna, which was the catch of the day, and got served a piece so full of sinew I couldn't cut through it. The... More

We went to Kondesa after dining at Kinta, its sister restaurant. Same owner from Colorado. Like Kinta, Kondesa enjoys a nice setting in a spacious garden. For starter we shared a nice salad. One of the dishes it came in was chipped. For main course I had an excellent fish of the day, which was tuna, barely seared, topped by... More

This place was amazing. I now have a new favorite restuarant in Cozumel. This place has a beautiful outdoor setting and the food was fantastic. You should make reservation.
