Food and service was very good. All dishes were enjoyed at this restaurant. We ate here twice. A fun Mexican experience. The mariachi band was an interesting addition to dinner.

We ate here the first night we were in Cancun and the cuisine was more upscale Mexican food. I had the shrimp and it was delicious. The sirloin was good, too. My husband and the other men had that dish.

Just go, especially if you're from the states. I thought I knew about tequila because I drink too much, but apparently there's a lot more I didn't know that I got to learn at our complimentary tequila tasting lesson after the fanciest, most impressively served Mexican dinner my wife and I have ever had. Being the first meal on our... More

La Joya is a excellent gourmet Mexican restaurant at Fiesta Americana Coral Beach in Cancun . The restaurant provides customers with a unique experience, Tequila tasting. We had a fantastic tequila sommelier, Mauricio. It was indeed an incredible educational experience. I strongly recommend it.
