Food was subpar and expensive for what you got. Service was very slow and had to wait for main courses for a long time.

By far the best Mexican food I have ever had in my 54 years of life. I will come back before I leave Mexico.

We had an outstanding meal and wonderful service. This was our first time at this restaurant and we’ll definitely return. We sat outdoors in the nicely decorated patio and enjoyed the atmosphere. I had the flautas and my husband had fajitas. Both were outstanding!

Vacation dinner- amazing food and drinks. Angel served us and did a fantastic job, keeping his humor with my mediocre attempts at Espanol. Will be back for the beans/beef and pretty much everything else.

Comida muy X, no corresponde al valor que uno paga. El chicharrón del guacamole rancio, aguado y mal sabor. Nada espectacular para paladares mexicanos. No vale lo que se paga

It was perfect for celebrating my son’s 10th birthday! What made it so special is that my son’s name appeared on the big screen for everyone else to see. It feels like the entire crows is also partaking in my son’s birthday celebration! It was memorable that way!

Had reservations for 6:30, but showed up early. Was denied seating even though half the tables were empty.
Eventually we where seated at the exact time and ordered three different dishes. Did not find anything very good

Food was excellent, service was excellent. We sat outside where we could see the ocean, when it was still light and hear the music from inside. Perfect !!!!!! Best of the restaurants we tried in Vidanta.

Sitting outside, weather permitting, is beautiful. Inside there are bug TVs and really no ambiance, much noisier. Food is okay but know what you are ordering. Individual taste and preference.

The first time we went, we had a great server, Angel. This time, our server was only so so. The food was good both times. The guacamole was fresh. The queso fondido was very good both with the mushrooms and the sausage. The chicken fajitas were nicely seasoned, but it would have been better if there was more chicken and much less onion.

Service and ambiance were excellent, but the food was average. We had chicken fajitas, the serving plate came warm and not sizzling like we would expect. The flavor wasn’t that good. Veggies had to be cut and the tortillas weren’t that great either. Also tried the Mexican rice and it looked good but didn’t have much flavor and was mushy! The lobster tacos looked good. Everything is very pricy for average Mexican food. Had better mex at Waves and tacos for less money! Desserts were small and pricey. We did ask to split a dessert and ended up getting and being charged for two? They were very small though for a $10-11 dessert!

LaCantina located in the Salem restaurant area of Mayan Palace, Riviera Maya. Upscale Mexican food, some unique dinner options, excellent service, quality and variety of food options. Mixed bag of music on all screens during dinner. We liked but if you like a quiet dinner environment, best to somewhere else.
