We had a awesome time. The chef and staff where very professional and made our experience an evening to remember.
The entire experience was wonderful and intimate. The chef, Mara Barba, is an artist and as sweet and wonderful as you could ever ask for. We learned about Mexican wine (and its unusual history), how to make tortillas and sample an array of fabulous and creative Mexican-inspired dishes. It was just a small group, and we all had a wonderful time. The quality of the Ritz with more depth and less glitz. Go there!
Mara was a gracious, fun and intelligent chef. We learned so much from her and had tons of fun. Best meal we had on our trip. Thank you Mara!
The culinary experience was extremely enjoyable. Chef Mara did an excellent job of describing the local cuisine and spent plenty of time explaining all of the ingredients, how they were sourced, and how to properly prepare them. Chef Mara also did a wonderful job with all of the wine parings. This is great for couples and it is maxed out at a total of four couples so no large groups, intimate and fun.
Chef Mara provided an exceptional evening of food, drink, and fun.
One of the best dinner experiences in Cancun. Always inventive, interesting, and enjoyable food and atmosphere.
Absolutely perfect evening. The atmosphere was charming, the service was impeccable, and Chef Mara whipped up an unforgettable meal with really good wine pairings. Highly recommend to all Ritz guests looking for a quiet, unique meal experience. We couldn’t be more pleased with everything!
Mara & Ricardo were outstanding hosts! The food was delicious and unique, and we learned a lot.
I highly recommend visiting the Culinary Centre for a truly unique experience!
We enjoyed the chef’s table experience. Mara and her team were fantastic...delicious food and stories were shared to give us a deeper sense of local culture.
Mara and Ricardo were excellent in this hands-on cooking experience in the Culinary Center. We had a great time.
Mara and her staff are so pleasant and go in depth to explain all the local foods.
Absolutely the best food experience we have had in awhile. Chef Mara makes it fun and educational. I recommend this as a "can't miss" event. Less info here is best so as not to spoil...we had no exact idea and left full, thrilled and thankful at our good choice!
Chef Mara did a great job highlighting local ingredients while involving the 4 of us in the cooking. A great experience of local cuisine with a chef who is passionate about the food. Fun and informative.
Chefs Mara Barbara & Noe Garcia provide you with a culinary tour through the different regions of Mexico Chef Mara's passion for food shows as she talks you through each course with the knowledge and history of each ingredient. The food was amazing and included several personal creations by Mara. The atmosphere is like being in Mara's home kitchen and you are family over for a meal. This is a memory we will cherish from our trip.
Great food experience in the hotel zone. Learn the secrets of Maya cuisine and enjoy local spirits. Great interactive cooking class and dinner. Salute Chef Mara!
The Culinary Center was great. Mara, the Head Chef was an absolute Gem. Her energy and knowledge helped make this experience one to remember. I would highly recommend this experience to others.
Fantastic! We had a great time learning to cook while enjoying delicious food, wine & conversation! Best meal & experience at the Ritz!!
Amazing exploration of the Mexican cuisine presented by a very witty, masterful, chef and her staff. A very pleasant experience worth writing about. Do not hesitate and take a chance.
Amazing one of a kind experience. Worth every penny.
