We ate here during our stay in Cancun and it was wonderful. Some of the best food we have ever had. It is a must do if you are staying in Cancun.

We found the lagoon view pretty but the food was not as good as some of the other out of the way restaurants in the area where we have eaten. The chicken dishes we had were dry and did not have much taste. The service was good. The prices were reasonable for the area since you could walk and not take a taxi. The margaritas were probably the best...This tends to be a tourist type restuarant and we like to "eat more of the local culture and in smaller restaurants. If I had to compare--I would say this restaurant is like a chain type --like a Mexican Chilli's or Applebees.

If you stay at the Westin, remember to ask for the free drink. It's fruity, low on alcohol, but tasty and refreshing.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating ( we had 15 people and needed 4 separate checks) and made us feel very welcome.
The food was great. I had a salmon dish with fresh red onions in a creamy sauce and it was one of the best salmon dishes that I've had so far.
I highly recommend this place.

We stayed at an all-inclusive and decided to try out a Mexican restaurant as recommended by our hotel concierge. It turned out to be decadent! Everything we tried was fantastic - the margaritas, the queso fundido and the molcajetes (see pictures, they tell the story). Our waiter, Luis, was hilarious and very knowledgeable. While there is a nice outdoor terrace overlooking the mangroves/lagoon, it was a hot Summer evening, so we ended up moving back indoors. Tip - If you don't like roving mariachis playing next to you while you eat, make sure to be seated as far away from them as we did.
