Stone bowl with shrimp was the best dish, we found the stone bowl with chicken lacking flavor and chicken was fatty because it’s dark meat only. If your not super hungry three people can easily share one bowl.

Ordenamos el mocaljete de rib eye steak y aparentaba ser uno de los platos mas populates de la noche porque todas las mesas lo ordenaron. Sin embargo, le falta sabor. La racion es suficiente para compartir entre dos personas pero como aperitivo. Las margaritas eran horrible. El servicio y los meseros fueron buenos. Tienen precios de restaurant 5 estrellas pero Taco Bell tiene mejor sabor.

Beautiful setting around a lake, very romantic place . We ordered a dinner for two, Chicken Molcajete, it’s cooked in a stone bowl and is served in the bowl. It comes with cheese, chorizo, scallions,cactus and an amazing 3 chili sauce. It’s amazing highly recommended
The staff is very friendly and definitely order a specialty cocktail as well. You won’t be disappointed

Each time we visit Vidanta at Riviera Maya, we always go to Nektar. It is our favorite restaurant on property. Nektar is open to the general public and it is a great place to spend an evening. Good food and excellent service. You have to try the pear drink that they make. It is my wife's favorite.

We have been back to Nekter a few times even when not staying at the Mayan. Very nice semi outdoor dinning. Service is excellent. Very nice selection. It is next to the Circ du Soile show so very nice to catch an early dinner and show or show then a late dinner. Highly recommended

It was the last night of my honeymoon and the staff made it extra special. Not only was their service above and beyond, their dinner recommendation was absolutely delicious. The molcajete mixto with rib eye and shrimp is one the best dishes I have had in my life. Their cocktails are fantastic as well. After dinner the staff surprised us with a free dessert of molten chocolate cake and ice cream with fresh strawberries. I plan to make a special point of stopping by here any time I am in Quintana Roo. Thank you so much for giving my wife and I a beautiful end to a great vacation.

For an elegant Mexican dinner near the Vidanta theater which hosts Cirque du Soleil, you should consider Nektar. Cost is moderate. The Octopus appetizer and the hot bowls are both amazing. Enjoy!

Our waiter was exceptional. Very knowledgeable kind and fun. He made our evening extra special.
Food was full of flavour. We had the hot pot for two; it was beyond amazing. The complimentary dips and chips were fabulous and greatly appreciated each unique taste.

Alain was wonderful explaining all the drinks n food. We had a special cocktail which was great, and went with the steak n chicken in the stone pot for two. Although the sauce was good, the steak was full of fat, and chicken was fair. Great ambiance, with live music and a great bar, but the food did not live up to the surroundings.

Great place to watch people, coming to and from the CdS show, eat a great meal, and enjoy the band during and after eating. We only had time for one meal this trip, so it was the grilled octopus as an app (really tender) and the shrimp bowl meant to be a shared main. The bowls have been around for years (3?) and look and taste so good. Well worth the effort to eat one without wearing any.

This was the best meal we had while staying near Playa. The service, food, and atmosphere were all amazing. Be sure to get a spicy margarita in the bar. The presentation was fantastic. The show at Cirque de Soleil was very entertaining afterwards.

The menu was a little hard to decipher. Apparently many of the appetizers are meant to be shared. My husband actually had one appetizer as an appetizer and a second appetizer as a main course. The waiter was very happy to explain what the foods were and to answer any questions and to make suggestions. We are experienced travelers and adventurous eaters and are willing to try anything. Everything we had was delicious.
