We had a delicious dinner here, and the wait staff could not have been more friendly. The owner came to the table to make sure we were pleased with everything. He stayed and chatted a while and told us some stories. Every dish was very good. Nice atmosphere, very pleasant restaurant. We recommend this as a must visit.

We have been dining at Locando Paulo's for over 25 years. The outstanding food, the ambiance and Paulo's genuine hospitality will keep us coming back --- hopefully for many more years.

We return to Locanda Paolo every year. My wife loves the rack of lamb and our reservation includes two racks of lamb. One for my wife and the other for my sister-in-law.

We make it a point to dine here several times a trip to Cancun , to see Paulo and his wonderful staff and to enjoy his great cooking and hospitality. It has become a Valentine's Day tradition for our friends. Very friendly staff and delicious food.

I ordered their Ceaser salad which they said was not large enough to share but came out huge....I found the dressing only ok. Puerto Madero was much more flavorful. Others on our group had other salads which they liked but didn't love. The escargot with melted cheese was very good. The staff was very attentive. We had fish in lobster... More

We had a pasta appetizer. It was good. This was followed by two fish dishes. The sauces on both were mediocre. Would not go out of my way to go here.

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner here! Lobster was amazing and the service was attentive but not overbearing. Great price on the wine.
