“Best restaurant in Cancun”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

The restaurant is beautiful and the service was wonderful. Being from New York city, my husband and I are accustomed to eating creative, flavorful, high quality food. Unfortunately this is hard to come by in Cancun with the exception of Julia Mia. For a full four course meal the price was very reasonable. It is worth the cab ride into town.

If you are looking for a true luxury gourmet experience for mexican food, this is the only place in cancun, mariachis on fridays, guadalajara fusion dishes, and great neo mexican decoration, truly nice.

“Best upscale Mexican food. Beautiful place. Good prices”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

When in Cancun, I stay away from the tourist traps and visit the many great restaurants in town. This is my new favorite. From the gorgeous facade and entrance, the spactacular stairway where mariachi's play to the tastefully decorated dining room and terrace. The food is delicious and unbelievably resonable. You will not find any tex mex here but old time favorites like "torta ahogada" (drunken sandwich) from Guadalajara, birria (a traditional soup to cure hangovers) and then some fusion Mayan and central Mexico favorites. This place is in town and well worth the 15 minute cab ride. It is new so if the taxi doesnt know where it is tell him it's on the side of Costco a block away from OXO
