Spent my birthday here and it was so fun!!! Amazing vibe - such good music, and amazing decor. Live violinist playing to club music really made the night as well as the pretty girls in white dresses with sparklers. Israel, Angel, and Luis were great...servers and made us feel special! The spinach ravioli was the best!More

Save your vacation time and money. Avoid Taboo! If you aren’t a smoker, prepare yourself to be consumed with secondhand smoke at Taboo. We were shocked to be surrounded by smoke coming from hookahs. It ruined our dinner as the smells were enough to turn...anyone’s stomach. There’s also no social distancing here. Tables and people were packed. Restaurant was completely full by 8:00pm on a Monday evening. With so many great restaurant options in Cancun, we won’t be back.More

This restaurant is simply amazing. Located right on the lagoon, the view at sunset is beautiful. Everything from the ambiance, the drinks, the food, the service was incredible. Our waiter José was incredibly attentive, as well as the floor manager Johnny. We wound up getting...several raw seafood dishes, all of them were the freshest seafood with excellent takes. The drink menu included different flavors for all. We stuck to mezcal drinks that were so delicious we wanted several. I would recommend anyone coming to Cancun to come here!More
