Todo bien, la atención y servicio, lo único que deben mejorar son los postres ya que festejamos un cumpleaños y el pastel dejó mucho que desear
Por otro lado la comida, porciones y calidad de los platillos muy bien
El costo es alto pero vale la pena

Muy rico aunque no del otro mundo, pedimos langosta a la plancha y el sabor era bueno, no me quejo de la comida, solo que al traer la cuenta el mesero me quiso cobrar a la fuerza más del 20 % de propina, le dejé el 10 % y fue y me alcanzo hasta la entrada para que le dejara más , lo único malo, lo demás buen ambiente, buena comida, buena vista, limpio y bonito.

Our family really enjoyed this place. Service was great. We ate outdoors and enjoyed the ambience. We took a couple of meals home for family members that stayed behind. When we got back to our hotel we found that they got our order wrong. I called the restaurant and spoke to a manager. He not only apologized but drove the correct order to our hotel personally. I was impressed. We will return when we come back to Cancun.

After a disappointing meal at sister restaurant limoncello, we were a bit concerned lorenzillo’s would follow suit, we were pleasantly surprised with an outstanding meal and experience. The service was great with waiters doting on our every need and quick to bring out our meal. The soft shell crab appetizer is one not to miss. For dinner, we had two kilo plus lobsters and two other tails in different spices to fully satisfy the six of us. It was a bit pricey but too be expected and the location on the water was real nice. I would say the wine list wasn’t great and our bottles were a bit sweet but overall a great meal.

Really beautiful setting with good (not Great) food and excellent service.

My wife’s lobster was perfect - but the accompanying pasta felt like it had been sitting around for some time.

My soft shell crab appitizer was pretty bad - felt like it had been cooked earlier and then left under a heating lamp for hours.

On the other hand, my deep fried whole snapper was excellent.

They need to work on consistency with the food.

Still, we would go back - the setting is gorgeous and the food is OK - with potential to improve.

Fue sensacional nuestra visita, asistimos para celebrar nuestra luna de miel y nos recibieron con una mesa especial, nos explicaban todo lo que preguntamos del menú y nos hicieron muy buenas recomendaciones. Al final nos otorgaron un pastel con la leyenda "Feliz Luna de Miel" Son detalles que hacen super especial este lugar. La comida d-e-l-i-c-i-o-s-a y la vista espectacular!

This place serves up the best at your table Cesar salad. But don’t stop there. It’s all about the lobster. There must be a dozen ways to have it prepared. I enjoy the broiled version. It is my favorite place to eat on the planet. I enjoy coming here twice a year. Its pricey but hey. It’s lobster made your way. Looking forward to July

Buenísimo, todo excelente. La comida deliciosa. Sólo me molesto que el mesero se haya enojado por dejarle el 10% de propina. Al final es lo maximo que puedo dejar por políticas de mi empresa para reembolso de gastos, sin embargo me parece pésimo que se enojen. Al final es su trabajo y no hay obligación de los comensales en dejar propina.

It didn't disappoint, excellent place. It is touristy, but still offers a very nice food. Creative menu twist on classic Caribbean seafood cuisine (fresh ingredients , try lobster ) . Great for big groups or just romantic dinner for two. It is fairly pricy.

I made the reservation based on reviews on TripAdvisor for my son and daughter in laws 3rd wedding anniversary while we were on vacation in Cancun. Once we ordered and got one drink our server was non existent. He went to get us more drinks and never came back. The food was mediocre at best and the portions were small. I ordered a seafood dish made with rice thinking it would be similar to a paella. It was soupy and you'd be hard pressed to find lobster, scallops or fish in it. My husband had lobster, my daughter in law had shrimp and my son had seafood tacos. We each had 2 drinks and shared 2 appetizers. Our bill was almost $400 American. The waiter then tacked on a 1000 peso tip. By the time we got out of there the bill was close to $500 American. Skip this tourist trap and ask the locals where they go. And while they offered up singing to 3 different tables while we were there, they never said anything about the anniversary. They alligator, Lorenzo, was the friendliest staff there. Stay away!
