Best pasta in Cancun. It’s all freshly made and is delicious. The ambience is amazing and it’s quiet, so you can have wonderful food and conversations.

About the restaurant
An Asian paradise on the Nichupé Lagoon. Delight yourself with exquisite and authentic cuisines; Thai by our Chef Sawai Suwannachat and Indian by our chef Kishan Singh. Heighten your senses in a jungle hut or in a bungalow over the lagoon, accompanied by our signature cocktails. Feel the magical atmosphere guided by our house DJ Gabriel Guzman.
Dear client, for us your upcoming experience in our restaurant is very important, for that reason we inform you that our Thai & Elefanta Restaurants are in same location, however, for reasons of Plaza la Isla remodelations, we will have a deviation in the access to our entrance, this deviation is through Fashion Harbour, in the hall between the Rolex and Dolce & Gabana stores, you will arrive at Ryoshi's entrance and turning to the right you can find us, if you arrive by the parking lot that is by Palacio de Hierro, just follow the hall that is in front of Ryoshi restaurant and at the end we will be waiting for you.

About the restaurant
Dine on a fusion of Mexican fare and seafood at Nav�os. This restaurant offers beautiful views of Nichupte Lagoon from its terrace, and guests can choose to dine right on the pier. Guests can begin their dining experience with an appetizer of clams in a half shell saut_ed in garlic chili, smoked marlin or carpaccio with marinated octopus and mushrooms at Nav�os. An entree of pumpkin seed and cilantro crusted salmon or filet mignon topped with a tamarind sauce will satisfy the appetite. Vegetarian and pasta dishes are also on the menu. Nav�os hosts private events and takes reservations for large groups.

Incredible food, awesome atmosphere, great staff and a fun time!!! I’m convinced that the negative reviews left about this place are from boring, cranky people because this place was electric. Definitely expensive but that’s expected of a luxury, high end dining experience. Not the place to go if you’re cheap!!! 5 ⭐️

As Westin Hotel Guests we dined here every evening - there wasn’t another restaurant close to the quality of Sea & Stones. The 11oz filet was sumptuous - and the medley of fresh vegetables, starches and salads. On request a special chicken Cesar Salad was created! Special indeed and service is commendable

Gabriel was our server & he was awesome! Very attentive & friendly! Food (surf & turf & lobster dinners) was really good, but very expensive. $106 USD a plate. Restaurant is at a marina where you can watch the beautiful Cancún sunset. Everything was wonderful other than it was very expensive
