Terrible service, food ever rated. Beautiful view and Awesome music Been going to many restaurants in Cancun Harry’s,Rosen Negra, Taboo... so far... food is not good. Ordered Lobster with artichokes, sea bass. Food was dry, over cooked and over salted. Even Guacamole wasn’t impressive. But...the most disappointing was Service. We had to ask multiple times for drinks waiters seems to be lost with orders forgetful with drinks even though place wasn’t incredibly busy. But Beautiful music beautiful view. Well... it is what it is... I’m wishing them good luck with the place. Maybe with time they gonna get better.More

Our last night in Cancun after fine dining up and down the Hotel zone turned out to be the best. What a treat! The atmosphere is exquisite, the service beyond excellent ( thanks so much to Mario and Luis for making it so fun and...special) and the food is wonderful. Guacamole, crab taco, salad with Gouda cheese,and skirt steak was so good. Run, don’t walk and don’t miss this terrific restaurant.More

The foodwas great as well as service and the ambience was even better, great experience for our first night in Cancun. Have in mind that is a bit pricey but is good quality food and drinks. Dress casual chic or elegant but not sandals or...shorts. Give good tips, I read in other comments they don't pay their waiters well, is so unfair when you pay over $200.- for a regular meal and end up paying their salary because you feel sorry... not fair. Hope that changes soon 🙏More

Great restaurant with impeccable service and excellent food. The piglet with guacamole was really good, and the center cut filet was superb. Highly recommend this place.

This was the only place we dined outside our hotel's complex. It was recommended by one of the Ritz Carlton managers. It was about a 20 minute walk from the Ritz, but the walk was safe. The view at this restaurant, especially at sunset, was...amazing! We enjoyed our margaritas and food. The service was terrific!More

The vibe in this restaurant is out of this world! I loved the view sitting up at the bar, I could look out over the water and boats and the amazing sky. I loved the music the DJ was playing. My servers, Julio & Jimmy...were so great! Such cuties and were right on me at every second of my visit with them to make sure I enjoyed my meal. I especially loved my Spicy Margaritas! I had the steak which was to die to for!!! I am really happy I ventured out of my hotel to dine here on a friends recommendation. She lives in Monterry Mexico and this is a chain. It came highly recommended and will definitely visit here again when in Cancun. Gracias Amigos!More
