Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

We visited two times! The first night we both had the amazing enchiladas and when we went back we had the Kondesa experience- the pan Katrina is the best dessert I've ever eaten.....will be returning in August!

“Special Spot-Do Not Miss”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

I had a difficult time deciding to review this stunning gem of a restaurant because it's now our FAVORITE restaurant in Cozumel.
Caesar, served us with a beautiful and welcoming spirit. The food was ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!
RICH in FLAVOR and STUNNING in PRESENTATION!
I recommend Guak three ways and the grilled shrimp. Oh, the tortilla soup was phenomenal!
Dexter, the Iguana Hunter, was a delight, as well.
I wouldn't recommend taking children, as I feel this is a perfect date spot, but children were there, and they seemed to have a lovely time.
The drinks are sublime. Not super strong on the tequila factor like most restaurants. I loved the Tamarindo and Habanero Margaritas.
Oh my! The churros! Yes!
My only recommendation to the owner is, PLEASE bring KONDESA to AUSTIN, TX!

“Great mix of upscale and local favors”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

Beautiful setting, delicious food and great service adds this to my personal top 10 dining experiences! They offer great locally inspired dishes with an upscale twist, fresh ingredients and a skillful, flexible staff. We had a party of 14 and they didn't blink an eye.
Kudos to Cesar ( our lead waiter), the chef and the entire staff for a memorable evening.

“Fellow TripAdvisors Deliver Again!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

This is the #1 rated place in Cozumel (if you discount a burrito bar) and it deserves that rating. Located a block off the main drag on a side street. You enter an outdoor seating paradise: beautiful plants, a huge tree providing a living canopy, jazzy music, and then the service and food are perfect! It looks like the place that the sophisticated local Cozumelenos go, and that is usually a good sign. In this case it was - we liked it so much we went back for after-dinner cocktails the next night!

“Unexpected pleasure”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

We were visiting friends in Cozumel. They had heard about this restaurant near their home. Off we went for a culinary feast extraordinaire. The server was very professional personable and entertaining. Our meals were exceedingly delicious. The outdoor setting was five star. The lush gardens and the lighting from the trees made it very pleasing to the eye. A place to come and relax and stay to enjoy delicious food. We finished by sharing their chocolate cake dessert which again was soooo good. We had no problems with those pesky Mosquitos the night we were there. Don't miss this one.
