Lu’um has become a must go to for my wife and I in Cancun. Surprising menu...always delicious. Friendly service.

Forgive me, but I must wax poetic about this restaurant. I ate here months ago and the experience has still stuck with me. The hospitality, the flavors, the service. The entire experience was incredible. Maybe it was the bottle of delicious local wine that I...split with my partner, but by the end of the meal I just had to shake hands with the chef! A true artist. There were flavors I never knew existed, I'd always been curious how to tame the pungency of cricket, but they tackled it perfectly with something I could only assimilate to a Mediterranean twist on a tostada. If this is Cuban cuisine I really must visit Cuba. I can almost taste the mouth watering pork belly in red sauce when i revisit the memory. If you're in town. Or got an airbnb close to the bus stations like we did, you truly cannot afford to miss a dining experience such as this. We wandered in by chance, went early, got lucky and had the restaurant to ourselves, our waiter was world class, a spirit guide on our trip to culinary excellence. The dishes are made with a love that transcends taste.More

It’s a small and cozy place owned by the chef and his wife who’s a sommelier, best combination ever! Great food and excellent selection of wines of course, they organize many dinners with special pairings by some of the best vineyards in Mexico and abroad...but also other liqueurs such as mezcal, tequila and artisan beers.More

Small restaurant in downtown Cancun, serving modern Mexican / fusion cusine. Food was amazing, service very friendly, and price half of what you’d pay in a similar restaurant in London.

Family owned restaurant, with very nice food and great service! Staff is helpful and create great atmosphere there. There were four of us at the dinner and all of us were very satisfied with the quality of food.

It was a great evening! Fresh and healthy food, very well presented. The waiters are very friendly (but in case you don’t speak Spanish it might be interesting:)) Also the wines are very good. It’s a small restaurant with a very nice atmosphere. I can...heavily recommend you to spend an evening there.More

After missing our flight to Tulum, we spent an extra night in Cancun. We weren't super familiar with where we were going and were essentially stranded. After walking around the area a bit, we eventually stumbled upon this Gem. The staff was extremely nice and...courteous. First helping us to find a taxi which is what was our initial need, but we decided to stay for a drink which then turned into a bottle, a dinner, and a spectacular desert. Everything was prepared with great care, flavor and technique. We had the portobello flat bread, the octopus special, and the creme brûlée. All delicious. If you're visiting and want to experience the life of a local outside of the tourist mayhem, please make sure you stop by this amazing restaurant.More

This was a lovely find for NYE dinner. They had a fixed menu for the evening which was not excepted but embraced. The food was unique and delicious. They service and family were wonderful. They had a dew small groups and were willing to go...off menu to accommodate some needs. They also hosted a big group in the room next to us. It was a lovely evening. We finished the night with champagne and grapes.More
