“Unusual fine dining with Mexican Food”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

We have visited this restaurant 3 times during our stay in Cancun. The decor is out of this world. A beautiful glass ceiling,unusual glass chandeliers. Upscale Marachie band most evenings. The service superb. The food so unusual. I have never tasted Tuna so good. A lot of the receipes are based on the food from Guadalajara. The wines are a little expensive,but overhaul and we live in France,you could not get any better value. We will be back next year.

“Amazing Food and Service”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

We were here on a Monday night and the only ones in the restaurant. Service was amazing, attentive, and friendly. Excellent food, amazing flavor combinations and gorgeous presentations. Steak tartare tableside was delicious and fun to watch. Tequila shots with lime juice and tomato juice chasers. You would easily pay three times the price for a meal like this in Portland. A bit out of el centro, any cab can take you.

“Real Mexican Food!”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Our local friends took us here for a late lunch/early dinner. Wonderful food, great drinks, friendly and attentive service. There is a play room for older children; ours were 9 and 10, which allowed them to get away from the adults for a while. A very full meal of their best, with drinks, coffee, desserts and after dinner drinks, plus a handsome tip came to just under 3,000 pesos or about $225 for six people! The food was exceptionally good and plentiful. Highly recommended.
