My boyfriend and I came to Cancun and really wanted a different experience away from the resorts. La Buena Barra was AMAZING!! The food was beyond incredible from start to finish, but the experience was even better. Jonathan and Roberto took care of us all...night. They were attentive, super friendly, and gave great suggestions. We highly recommend asking for a table on the terrace close to sunset. The view, atmosphere, service, and food were all 10/10.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

Excellent service from Jonathan and Roberto this evening. Creative, delicious cocktails and recommendations on best food dishes to try.

The service and experience were spectacular. It’s a fun vibe but not too over the top like some of the other restaurants in the hotel district. All of that aside, this was the best meal I’ve had in Cancun. They cook their steaks perfectly and...the quality of meet was superb. I have to give a huge shoutout to Oscar and Mauricio for staying attentive to our needs and giving us 5 star service.More

The concierge at our hotel & reviews seriously underplayed how amazing this restaurant is. From start to finish impeccable food and service. On top of this we went on a Saturday, for Christmas Dinner and it was the most amazing show. Normally when you have...this type of entertainment the food is just okay. Not here, we had Octopus, ceviche, filet cooked in front of us (split between three people), and even the cocktails were memorable. Would give it 10 stars if I could, and I'm usually pretty criticial.More

Our concierge at the Lagunamar resort raved about the Chile En Nogada at La Buena Barra and said we had to try it. Was she ever right! Not only was that dish a big hit but the entire experience was A+. From the appetizers to...the tortilla soup to the dessert with sparklers, everything was excellent. The service by Arturo and Carmen was top rate. Great place to catch a Cancun sunset over the bay.More

This is an upscale Mexican restaurant located close to many hotels. Staff are pleasant and attentive. We were warmly greeted as soon as we walked in. We were seated at a table with an awesome view of the sea and sunset. Their house specialty cocktails...were excellent- tasty and generous with the alcohol. We ordered a bunch of dishes- roast pork/lechon, octopus, beef filet tacos, lenguas taco and roasted vegetables. All were tasty, fresh and not salty. Dessert was prepared tableside- well worth the extra calories. Service was outstanding. Staff answered all our questions and took time to explain the food & cocktail menus. They were attentive but not intrusive. We did not feel rushed. Reservations are highly recommended. We timed ours so that we can watch the sunset- magnificent view! An enjoyable evening.More
