This is a fairly priced restaurant with a good open air atmosphere and very good food. Only reason for not getting the 5 stars was a little bit of a slow service.

We thought the food was very fresh and the setting in front of the dolphins was a great way to entertain the kids while we waited for food. We were seated promptly and the food didn't take long either which was great since we'd spent the day at the beach and were tired and hungry. I would recommend this for... More

We visited two times and food was very nice and tasteful. Ravioli was good and chicken dishes! What we didn't like was that they added tips straight to the build without any mention in menu

The staff won us over and we where interested in something a little different for dinner. The service was excellent and the dishes where well priced and pretty good for Italian in the area. We had a nice dessert and some after dinner drinks. Great to watch the people and the dolphins while eatting

If you are staying at Puerto Aventuras I would definetly reccomend you check out Massimo. They have a menu like no other having over 45 different items. I chose the pizza, it was one of the best I've had. Definetly reccomend coming here.

Family dinner for 4. Pizzas are very good and you'll be full if you eat one by yourself (I barely finished mine; my wife has lunch for the next day). My son (very fussy eater) was duly impressed with the pizza (Hawaiian with Italian sausage), and asked the waiter to pass his compliments to the chef. The veal carpaccio was... More

Returned to this restaurant for lunch after going on a previous trip for dinner. We were disappointed. This is a dinner restaurant. Pizza not available at lunch..the lights at night create the atmosphere. Service is also better at night
