“Tried it two times to be sure I didn't like it”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

The first time I went here, I did not like it, but I decided it could be because it was fairly new. I tried it again and had something different, and still did not like it. The first time I went, I had a pork dish, with what was supposed to be a pork in a red chili type sauce. The sauce literally tasted like water. I had someone else at my table try it as well, and they agreed that it had absolutely no flavor. The second time I went, I had the chimichanga, which I figured was so common, it had to be ok. I was wrong. Again, it had absolutely no flavor at all. The guacamole was very good and the salsa was pretty good too. Those are the only two positives I can say about the food

“New and trying its best”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Riviera Maya is recently open. In some aspects it shows, in spite of its growing pains, it should be tried. The food is tasty and ample and the service truly aims to please. The Margaritas need improvement, so at this stage stay with the beer or wine. we will return.
