La Buena Barra is officially at the top of our must-visit places in Cancún. We saw the reviews on Yelp and figured this would be a good spot for one romantic, upscale dinner to celebrate our honeymoon. It ended up being so good we made reservations to come back a second time before we leave.
What really made the night was our wait staff, Roberto & Selene. From the start they were so sweet, and very vigilant while we ate. Roberto helped us decide what to eat, and we're so glad we took his advice.
We ordered the ceviche to start, and it's amazing. It comes with crackers but it's best on the little tostadas they bring. It's fresh & acidic & so delicious just on its own. For the entree we split the ribeye clean center-cut tenderloin, with asparagus & mashed potatoes on the side. Everything was incredible on its own, but together the 3 were perfect. I don't even like steak, but it was so perfectly cooked & marbled, and we got to watch them slice it & pour flaming mezcal over it next to our table. So cool!
Roberto talked us into the 24-layer chocolate cake, which was HUGE (big enough for at least 5 people, probably more) and a drink that had a shot of espresso with a shot of Liquor 43 on top - amazing.
In short, the food was incredible, but Roberto, Selene, & the beautiful atmosphere totally made the night. Can't wait to go back in a couple days!

My friend and I decided last minute to come here for lunch since it was pouring out and we wanted a good lunch, not just another meal on resort. Plus it was a little Pre-birthday lunch. :)

The venue is beautiful, and right on the water (sunset side).

The service was impeccable and the recommendations from our servers (Juan Medrano & Manolo Chan) were spot on!

We started off with the Queso appetizer and Ribeye Cracklins. Definitely get one of the mezcal cocktails - if you come for lunch they don’t do the mixology at the table but it’s still delightful.

For our main we did a variety of tacos like the Cheese Crusted Ribeye, Bone Marrow Taco, the Volcano and Soft Shell Crab. We also ordered the Artichoke Salad - you can’t go wrong with it.

For dessert we just wanted to try a couple, so we got the Churros Especial and the Dulce De Leche Cake. Both were good but the latter was amazing!

Couldn’t have asked for a better lunch and great service. You won’t regret coming here!

Terrible weather so we arrived very early for cocktails. From the moment we sat down we were taken care of. The cocktail cart arrived within seconds, followed by Marco our waiter who recommended some terrific dishes - the crab taco, steak taco, guacamole, and churros. Great service. If they could only take the hurricane away.
