“Romantic and intimate dining experience in Cancun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

Way off the 'beaten path' in Cancun but worth going. This intimate restaurant (approximately 10 tables) is on a dockside lagoon with an incredible view of the Cancun hotel zone. Attentive yet unobtrusive service with good food at a fair price. Started with the French onion soup the for a main course we enjoyed the beef tenderloin and stuffed chicken breast. For dessert, the most delicious and decadent Belgan chocolate mousse we've ever had. Definitely make your way here.

“Fresh Snapper”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

Small quite out of the way wonderful place to dine! I usually get the fish special, which will be grouper or snapper! It has always been fresh and delicious! The prices are moderate and the service is great! If you are looking for a great dinning experience in a romantic setting, give it a try! It can be a little hard to find, but just ask for directions! We always dine there year after year!!

“Off The Beaten Path, as well as, Everything Else”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

Out dated menu, class and service. Seems prior reviews may have been when in its prime. Unfortunately, perhaps new ownership acquisition is trying to ride the waves from the prior stakeholder. Food was completely disappointing, basically zero quality and tasteless. Although it may appear as a disconnect from the commerciality of Canún, it's not or worth it! Don't waste your time or money if you're into good quality food, experience or value. Stick to the local taquearías with far better food quality and value. They're the only comparable options for value you may compare.

However, if you don't have a palette, definitely hit it up!

*note: I paid nada (other companion's treat), just as much as it's moment, nada....

“Great Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

Food was outstanding, service top notch. The bread with the guac type dip was unbelievable. Decent prices. A bit difficult to find, but not a problem. You just have to walk through the courtyard of the hotel. I would definitely recommend. Beautiful view, and wonderful food.
