“Miami Beach feel, French Music, Italian Food...but it's Mexico!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Loved the look, feel and food here! We got special treatment from Lugo, our waiter, who spread red rose petals on our table for our anniversary! Enjoyed every moment, including the incredible sunset overlooking the lagoon.

“Highly recommend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

This was a great find, recommended by the concierge desk at the Ritz. We had a beautiful sunset view over the lagoon, and the service was terrific. The spaghetti negro con lobster was excellent, and try the homemade ice cream for dessert, it was great!

“Delicious homemade pasta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

My husband and I started out planning to share a pasta dinner, but it was so delicious that we ended up getting another order. I can't remember the name of the pasta dish, but it came with a very tasty mushroom sauce. The bread that is served is homemade and is very light . We watched a gorgeous sunset over the lagoon while we dined- an added extra we hadn't expected ! This year was a bad year for mosquitoes so they even brought us spray for our legs. The restaurant also is conveniently located almost across the street from the Royal Sands.

“Possibly The Best Cancun Has To Offer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

A wonderful venue overlooking the lagoon...Live, relaxing music...Fresh, flavourful food created with style and attention to detail and then served by attentive staff...a sommelier who recommended the perfect wine to accompany the meal...it just does not get any better than this. When in Cancun, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

“Great dinner X2”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

My family dined at Cenacolo Mare based upon a recommendation by our hotel (Ritz) concierge, and we truly enjoyed this restaurant. So much so, that we dined here twice. This is a Mediterranean restaurant, so there is a good mix of seafood and pastas. We ate on the dock at sunset the first evening and things could not have been nicer. Our server, Ivan, was excellent! We tried a variety of their salads and other appetizers (definitely try the shrimp stuffed calamari) and their pastas for dinner. The pasta is freshly made and that is clearly evident. The favorite meal for most of us was the "guitar" pasta with lobster. This was a black spaghetti dish with a light tomato sauce and plenty of fresh Caribbean lobster. The presentation was beautiful. Drinks and desserts at this restaurant were also very, very good.

The ambiance is relaxing with an open-air bar, with a white-themed atmosphere (white walls, white grand piano, etc.). The service was excellent and while it was a little pricey, compared to other restaurants it was worth the cost.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant -- and ask for Ivan to complete your experience. If it is a nice night, dine outdoors, but if it's hot/humid much sure you reserve a table in the air conditioned room.
