We thank TripAdvisor reviewers for out visit to Kondesa. It was excellent! We enjoyed octopus tostadas, red snapper enchiladas and some of the best churros we've ever tasted for desert. Out server, Rene', gave us attentive, friendly service throughout.

Good predictable food and we try and make it at least every trip to the island. Always refer to friends and it's hasn't let us down. There's better on island but ambience of the outside seating makes this place special. Easy parking too.

Kondesa did a good job with our large group dinner (23 people). Restaurant was prepared for us, staff was attentive. Food is very good - try the Lion Fish cakes for an appetizer. The kitchen had to prepare and plate the dinners in two groups because of our size. But food was hot and fresh.

We really love the atmosphere of this restaurant and so we chose it for our Christmas dinner. We also really love the owner Daniel. He is the consummate host at all of his places. My husband loves the Kondesa Kakes which is lionfish wrapped in a potato cake. I feel like the potato takes away from the taste of the... More

My wife and I had dinner at Kondesa last night. We made reservations through the restaurant web page but didn't need to have them even on a Saturday night. We ordered a pitcher of margaritas which was tasty but not very strong. I started with the lion fish cakes which were excellent and worth the trip to Kondesa. My wife... More

In December I had a great experience at Kondesa'a Wednesday cooking class with Chef Oscar. It was a hands on class giving me the opportunity to make the sauces and dishes Chef demonstrated. The first treat was a signature margarita rimmed with Tajin pepper flakes rather than salt. It did not disappoint. Chef shares some of his "secrets" for outstanding... More

Excellent meal. This is a must-visit restaurant in Cozumel. Absolute everything is delicious. The patio seating is spacious and lovely. It was extra special having the resident cat visit our table periodically.
