Went for the first time last year and had a wonderful dining experience this year not as much. Made reservations a week early to make sure we got a cabana outside However when arrived we were told none were available. Main meal was ok not as good as we remember Also usually don’t order desert but waiter was convincing so we got the chocolate cake which was terrific however they never brought our coffee after several request. Waiter seemed to be overwhelmed with all the tables he was covering. Sorry when I’m going to spend $150 in dinner I expect to have an almost perfect dining experience.....

We stayed at the JW Marriott and it was across the street. No taxi needed! Good food and drinks. Beautiful restaurant. Higher end restaurant but lots of lower priced entrees such as tacos for anyone on a budget.

Went here for our anniversary. Service was excellent. They brought out a couple starters, a small shot of shrimp soup and some flat hard bread with a tuna spread. Very delicious. My wife had the Fred’s salad and I had the lobster bisque to start. Both were great (my wife is a chef). Then shared the ribeye, scallops risotto and the coconut shrimp. Only issue was the shrimp was very over cooked. Other than that the meal was great. We had seen some reviews where folks were unhappy with bottled water ( we just chose ice water) and that the tip was included in the check but we didn’t experience that. Overall we had a great experience.

We had the scallops appetizer, salt baked fish and the chocolate hazelnut dessert. All were delicious. The scallops appetizer was the kind of food that makes you slow down and enjoy the brilliance of food preparation.

The food was really what a tapas restaurant will serve, highly priced for very little portions, however the services was excellent, the waiters that served us that night was really good service skills, but the food was not worth the price or for that price should be a little bit more food. I will not recomend it and I will never go back.

We make sure Fred’s is scheduled for our first night and last. We just love the fresh food and wonderful drinks. The outdoor dining is spectacular. Thank you Adriano, Bruno and Luis. They couldn’t have been more attentive.

The staff was exceptional but was not thrilled with the food. The lobster bisque did not have any lobster in it. The wood fire grilled shrimp did not have much flavor. The wood fire grilled lobster was overdone. Not worth the price.

Great location on the lagoon, fresh seafood and very competent and professional service. I had wood-grilled grouper as a main course, which was done perfectly. I will definitely try this place again.

la verda la comina no tiene nada de espectacular, considero que la relación comida precio es caro comparada con otros de la zona, muy normal, picante un poco, los platillos austeros y poco creativos, lo único que puedo alabar es el servicio muy bueno, discreto, ya que fuimos molestados muy a menudo como suelen hacerlo en otro restaurantes. Por lo que respecta al lugar la zona con vista al mar muy bonita.

Muy buena comida en un ambiente relajado y bien diseñado. El servicio fue impecable y ayudó mucho a que la experiencia dura muy buena. De precio/valor es difícil catalogar ya que en Cancun todo es más caro de lo normal, pero definitivamente la buena experiencia ayudó a mitigar el sentimiento de atraco cuando llega la cuenta.

I would have loved for this to be a great experience, since it's very convenient to walk from the JW Marriott. Unfortunately it was not. Food was ok. Service was horrendous. The octopus barbacoa starter and Mexican shrimp ceviche were good and decent portions. My catch of the day (grouper) was overlooked and drowned in butter. Prices did not match the experience.

 (Dallas)·Dined on July 28, 2017

The food was good. The atmosphere was average. They kept pushing bottles of wine on my wife and I, but she likes white and I like red, so we didn't need a bottle of wine each. The view was nice and they were attentive, so overall a good experience. The abundance of gnats was a bit annoying, but didn't ruin it.

The food was subpar at best, but the worst was when I bit into my crab cake and found an enormous chunk of ice. Very disappointing for a "nice" restaurant, and it made us all skeptical of the other dishes.
