Outstanding service. Very exceptional staff that anticipated every need. A new chef and new menu exceeded our expectations. The food was not only delicious but attractively plated. It is expensive but well worth the visit.

The absolute dream in dining excellence... I wish I could experience the exquisite flavors, the warm hearted care of the staff, and the slow savoring of time regularly... I feel so enriched by the two visits I had here in one week. This is a must-do when in Cancun.

The dining experience was good but it is not something that I would repeat. I’ve eaten in other Victorian inspired restaurants that are much better. Service was good but the food was nothing special. Staple offerings cooked well but with no real flair or anything new to offer. Very quiet restaurant with just three other tables occupied. There seems to be no dress code requirement here which does not seem natural to its environment. Bread was good and there was a varied choice. I wish we had have been more impressed with our meal.

Classical fine dining experience with excellent dishes (we had fish that was fresh and perfectly prepared) and service. For an extra special touch, recommend the caviar service. Wine list as with many good restaurants in Mexico could be improved to match the top notch quality of food. That was the only element holding back my first 5-star rating having dined at dozens of 4-4.5 star places.

From the moment you walk in, you know it is going to be a special evening. We were warmly greeted and shown to our table. The room is beautifully appointed and overlooks the ocean. Our outstanding waiter, Alvaro, introduced himself then we were immediately served crostini and, with his help, ordered a bottle of wine from a large list of wonderful choices. The evening was not rushed at all. Alvaro went over the menu and gave us his recommendations. He did not steer us wrong. For appetizers we had the zucchini soup, the baby greens salad and my daughter and I split the homemade pasta dish. A bread cart with four different kinds of breads and four different olive oils was brought to the table for our selection. After our appetizers, we were brought a cup of a creamy soup and a very interesting palate cleanser. Sorry I cannot remember what each was called. For entrees we chose sea bass, salmon, lamb chops and the filet. All were wonderfully prepared. The dessert menu looked fabulous but we were too full to order however a cart of bite size confections was brought to the table and, of course, we did not refuse. The piano music throughout dinner was delightful. Our enchanted evening ended with each of us receiving a box containing a chocolate truffle, and the women in our group a red rose. A perfect end to a perfect evening. A great way to celebrate our week in paradise coming to a close. Thank you Alvaro snd thank you Fantino.

Another fantastic restaurant at the Ritz Cancun. Jorge was our server and he was exceptional! Always attentive but not intrusive. He was very kind and took his time to explain the menu and help us with our many questions. He and the rest of the staff were wonderful! The food was out of this world. All the extra surprises from the chef were so beautiful and tasty and very much appreciated. At the end of the evening, they handed you a rose and fresh truffles to take home. Such a nice touch! We would love to return again!

Our experience dining at Fantino was an unparalleled experience. The food was absolutely exquisite. The service was the best I’ve ever experienced. While the experience is heavily weighted in opulence, the staff made the experience incredibly fun and inviting. The atmosphere and decor was of old world elegance with the added touch of a soulful pianist setting the tone in the background. This moment will imbued on the front of my mind for s long time to come.

This was the most amazing dinner my husband and I have ever experienced. The service levels were unmatched and the food was perfection. They had a vocalist with a piano player that was also very good. We eat out a lot and this was by far our best experience. Job well done Ritz team!

Simply one of if not the best dining experiences we have had. We have been fortunate to have many extraordinary dining experiences over the years, but Fantinos was possibly the best of them all. Service was a 15 out of 10 (really out of this world), food was exquisite and the restaurant was beautiful. To top it all, the tasting menu was only $100 and wine pairing could be added for ~$50 more. I can’t say enough great things about Fantinos, really impressed. We will be back

Outstanding service Wala! The chef gift creation tomato soup was delicious, the salmon quite good. My daughter has the tenderloin cooked to perfection with a wonderful sauce. My meal was a total fail. I had the lamb which was extremely tough to get a knife through and the Osco Busco was overdone and crispy. It would have been nice to add some veggies to the plate. Desert was mixed. My daughter has the dessert from the tasting menu and she was overwhelmed with tastes and textures and wasn’t sure they went well together. I had the chocolate lava which wasn’t anything out of the ordinary. We’ll go back as we are here for two weeks but disappointed as we had planned to eat there 4-5 times a week.

Service moments were excellent but were somewhat hurried, (staff was extremely busy). Food was wonderful (however, several courses were served without any explanation.) Wine pairings were disappointing, very small portion, definitely not worth the premium. (several pouring went without description.)
