“Over exceeded our already high expectations”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Our group of 6 could not stop raving about the ambience, service and food. Ambience - the restaurant is set in a lush, outside area with trees, flowers, dim/romantic lighting with low Euro jazz playing over hidden speakers. Service - we we greeted by a friendly face at the door and lead to our table. Immediately a waiter appeared to take our drink orders and help make recommendations. We always had the waiter nearby and he was on top of our drinks....making sure the glasses were never empty. Food - Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! I think we ordered everything on the menu. The In Gauk we Trust was great. There were 3 different guacamoles to choose from (our favorite was with fruit). The Keso Fundido was ridiculously delicious. Definately have the Tortilla Soup. The presentation was beautiful and the taste even better. If you like Mole, try the Pollo Poblano. My husband was raving. I had the Peskado Tomatillo and it was a fabulous fusion of sweet, spicy and great texture. We cannot say enough great things about the restaurant. Thank you Kondessa for a lovely and memorable evening.

“Very romantic”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Modern fusion Mexican food at it's best!!! Fresh, fresh, fresh fish here. Service was top notch and the food was great. The dining area is a very romantic court yard with lots of candlelight. The drinks are good and the fish was out of this world. We will be eating here again next time we go to the island.

“This place is a must visit in Cozumel. Cesar, the best waiter ever, is just one of the reasons why.”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Guac, In Guac We Trust, and Queso Fundido are all amazing. We had the enchiladas with Red Snapper and with Mahi Mahi. We went on two separate nights during our 5 day visit...its that good. Cesar, one of the waiters there, is an absolute joy and knows how to explain the menu in amazing ways. I highly recommend Kondesa. You won't be disappointed!
