We did the tasting menu for our anniversary. Best service we've ever experienced at any restaurant. Would definitely return.

Absolutely amazing meal and service (Ernesto and the serving team were out of this world). The fabulous Ritz-Carlton team did not miss a beat or detail! Although it was costly and a two and a half hour meal, it is definitely worth treating your family too!

We dined with our 2 children. They had a small steak entry for my daughter which she loved. I had the filet mignon which was off the charts. The decor is magical and food was delicious. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

We usually avoid hotel restaurants but this one is an exception. The Ritz in Cancun is One of our favorites. Better for adults and grown ups. Second time visiting Fantino. The service is a step above in an area ( Cancun ) where Hotels service is traditionally excellent at all 5 star resorts. Our server guide us well. I follow... More

Fantino is like hopping to the Mediterranean on your private jet for Dinner. My wife and I enjoyed the Chef's tasting menu and it was simply superb. The staff was attentive without intruding and incredibly nice. But the star of the show was the 9 course meal..Chef's tasting was 6 courses and the Chef added 3 free. Each bit was... More

Amazing service and the best food we had while visiting Cancun. Located in the Ritz Carlton, you'd expect the best and that's what you get, except the price is incredibly low compared to what one would expect. Wear closed toed shoes and a long sleeved shirt as the AC is cool and there is a shoe "rule." Top notch setting,... More

Our dinner at Fantino at The Ritz was a very elegant, leisurely affair. It is designed to be a lengthy dinner, so don't go if you are in a hurry. They presented us with 3 different amuse bouches - all delicious as well as fresh bread and three kinds of olive oil. Portions are small, but certainly sufficient. Prices are... More

My favorite part of dining here was all of the things I didn't order. We started with a little amuse-bouche. It was a foie gras soup, which I understand was delicious, but I had told the staff that I'm vegetarian, so I got what was probably an equally good tomato soup. At the end of the meal, we received a... More
