The waiter staff were incredible. We ate here several times during our stay because of the atmosphere and great food. We were hoping to experience some new food choices from the region and the staff had local food suggestions. I admit that I could not pronounce everything that I ate but it was always fresh and original.

Cool place. It is hard to find. This place is part of the Intercontinental hotel. The restaurant located at the seaside. Go through lobby to access restaurant.This place is great for lunch. They have various food options and the staff is very friendly.

Last night, together with our friends, my husband and I were treated to a special chef's dinner at El Caribieno . We remembered Pamela, the manager, from when she was the hostess at La Trattoria at the Moon Palace Golf Resort and Spa. She welcomed us with such a wonderful smile, remembering us from last year. Our dinner was a... More

We went to this restaurant on our first night at the hotel. We had a soup, the tostadas, the pasta and a fish filet. The food was abundant and very tasteful. The service was good too.

Still beautiful setting, but food and service were very disappointing this year. My family has been going to the restaurant for many years and have loved it (see my previous review). We have always had great meals and service, but our recent visits (2 of them within a week) have been very disappointing. The first visit, I broke my own... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here but thought the food was just OK. It's hard to judge fairly when you're sitting on the ocean sipping cocktails. The appetizer was very good but the main course of grouper was a little dry and my enchiladas were average. The service was very good and we would definitely go back and give it... More

This restaurant on Presidente Intercontinental hotel resort grounds was a pleasant surprise. We had superb breakfast buffets with a grand variety and selection and a wonderful dinner. The menu was extensive, the food excellent, the prices moderate and the dinner sunset views marvelous. My seared tuna dinner was outstanding, and my friends grilled lobster tails were delicious. I highly recommend... More

We ate here three times at first by virtue of its being in our hotel, Intercontinental Presidente Cancun. We returned twice more, once for my birthday dinner and the next morning for breakfast. Each meal was terrific in its own way. There are two menus, one with local fare, the pasta dishes and some great looking fish options, the other... More

We stayed at the Intercontinental. We were surprised with this restaurant as one of the top ones in Cancun. The food is very delicious and served in a very nice look. It is next to the beach with a very nice view. But the most pleasing part of the restaurant is the great service with very friendly staff. Great choice... More
