My Aunt and I left our resort in order to enjoy a great meal and we were not disappointed! The setting was amazing with wonderful views. The service from the hostess all the way to the server was phenomenal. We felt truly cared for and it showed in the drinks and food. We will definitely return and also try the other fairmont restaurants!

We have been here in Cancun for three months and Alex met us on our first day here. We are staying in the canal homes and it’s very close to this place. Alex is a fantastic manager and is always very attentive. The food and drinks are very good. The view is amazing. We have been here like 12 times. We enjoy everything about this place. 5 stars for everything. We have another 1/2 of a month to month here and we will be back at leave three or four times.

A wonderful restaurant. The food was delicious and very pretty. They were very accommodating of a gluten allergy with a separate menu and even had warm gluten free bread!
