“Great dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

We had a great dinner here. Dora and her staff have created a nice environment and a fresh and wonderfully crafted menu. I had the fresh fish and couldn't speak highly enough of it.

“Best desert in Mexico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

We had a really great meal here with our kids on vacation this week. The Mac and cheese shrimp dinner was AMAZING! And we split it between two with plenty to eat. Our kids split the steak dinner with plenty as well. For desert we had the best brownie with ice cream and apple pie with ice cream. So good... The wait staff was great and the food came in good time. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Simply amazing food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

We dined here about 4 years ago and it was just as good as we remembered. The owner is very attentive and the food is marvelous as well as the wine. I would highly recommend the steak with chimichurri sauce or any of the fish items...best food in and around Cancun/Playa in our opinion

“All Pretension But No Substance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014 via mobile

We went to John Gray's for our anniversary hoping that it would live up to the reviews, but sadly, it did not. I had a Caesar salad starter that had great big wet dollops of dressing that tasted like it was out of a bottle. My husband had the crab cakes which were a much better choice, but then his pork loin was over-cooked and dry. My duck breast was only slightly better.
Though we were sitting inside, there were swarms of mosquitoes. It appeared they were living in the black velvet chairs! We're still itching, but not to go back.

“don't go for lunch”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

We had high expectations for this restaurant based on recommendations from friends. The lunch menu is sparse and the food was let's say poor. The burgers were terrible, the salad had enough dressing to float a boat. The pasta was satisfactory. Others say dinner and breakfast are good but you cannot prove it by the lunch.
