The Divot offers a charming and peaceful outdoor setting with views overlooking the Puerto Aventuras Golf Course. Ingredients are fresh and locally sourced when available.

Dance to live Cuban music on Fridays while enjoying our delicious Mediterranean cuisine . Watch Chef Miguel preparing a magnificent Paella on Saturdays and enjoy with cold beer or wine. Simply great!

We had a wonderful dinner here … not to mention a wonderful conversation with the owners. We would highly recommend dining here - we've only tried it for dinner - but warn that this is a cash only restaurant.
