We dine here every year and we are never disappointed. It is a very popular restaurant so it is wise to make reservations well in advance. The food is delicious and the service is attentive. Entertainment is provided by Jorge Duran, a classical guitarist, who plays a wide gamut of songs.

This restaurant offers wonderful food and drink in an elegant casual setting. The service was excellent and there are a number of wonderful table-side prepared dishes that add an enjoyable experience to the delicious food. The setting is very nice, with lowered lighting and modern decor. The restaurant is smaller but this makes it feel more intimate, rather than crowded.... More

My family and I visit this restaurant almost every time we are in Cancun. The food is very nice and high quality, and the table side preparation is also quite charming and entertaining. There is usually always nice live music, and the atmosphere is quiet and classy.

Wonderful setting - exceptional food. Several "prepared at table" offerings. Truly elegant, unrushed, fine dining. Food selections are not your run of the mill options.

At the Royal Mayan, this restaurant was top class and memorable. Now moved to the Royal Islander, the overall experience has gone down hill. The serving staff can be a bit cold and not welcoming. The food was good on our first visit but not good on our second visit. The whole experience was so disappointing when compared with the... More

We had a wonderful dining experience. We dined at this restaurant twice on our vacation and enjoyed it very much. The host was very friendly when he greeted us when we walked in. They have a medium size wine list, we found the Cab from Chile very fruity and flavorful. The starter bread with fresh herbs was extremely soft, yummy,... More

I was staying a at Royal resort and tried all of their available restaurants. This was my least favorite. Approximately half the entrees had supplemental charges if you bought the all-inclusive package through Royal, particularly the steaks, which seem to be their specialties. The atmosphere is stuffy with some employees wearing tuxedos, not really what I am looking for on... More
