While in Cancun we celebrated my daughter’s birthday at this wonderful restaurant. It is located in the La Isla Shopping Center which is directly across the street from our hotel. There are some tables outdoors for those wanting to have a drink and people watch. The inside is much more formal with three floors and beautiful decor. There is a large portrait of the Mona Lisa on one of the walls, several large sculptures and everything is quite formal.
We were offered a free cosmopolitan due our staying at the Westin Lagunamar. It was quite good. We also ordered the meatballs as an appetizer. They were wonderful and very tasty with marinara sauce and parmesan cheese. There was also bread with olive oil and vinegar. We gave my one year old granddaughter a piece of the bread and she approved! My son-in-law ordered spaghetti bolognese for his entree which he said was excellent. My daughter and I ordered veal parmigiana with basil pasta and marinara sauce. The veal was tasty, but not as good as the $38 USD price.
For dessert I opted for ice cream which was delicious. My son-in-law ordered the creme brulee which was also very good. My daughter ordered the chocolate mousse with passion fruit gel on top which was very disappointing. It was not soft as expected, but chewy. The passion fruit gel “saved the day.” Because they knew it was her birthday, they also brought her a tiramisu. She is not a coffee drinker, but it was a nice thought. She did eat some of it, but my son-in-law was the winner here as this is one of his favorite desserts. Perhaps when it came time to order the dessert, it would have been nice if they had offered her a choice, rather than letting us order dessert and bringing the tiramisu afterwards.
We had a very enjoyable time here and overall it was a delightful meal. I would rate this restaurant 3 1/2 stars if I could, as parts were superb and parts of the meal were somewhat lacking.
