This resto is located in the Hard Rock Hotel. Our waiter was kind and our meat server, Jesus, was knowledgeable with the types of meats he was serving us. The two best meats that he had served us was the chicken Thai and the Argentinian sausage. They also have a buffet in which includes a variety of foods like sushi,... More

This is by far the best restaurant at The Hard Rock Cancun. We came and ate here 3 nights out of the 5 nights we had stayed. The waiters we had were Jimmy one the nights and Chalo for the other two. They were both great and very nice. The food was really good.

Great variety of hot and cold breakfast foods. Enjoy your meals on an outdoor deck or along a bank of windows facing the sea. Couldn't ask for a better ambiance. The staff was always friendly and courteous.

You begin your meal with a visit to the buffet which is filled with excellent salads bread's main courses or side dishes and the food was excellent. Be sure not to fill up on all these delicious choices because when you go back to your table the meat will begin to arrive the flank steak and the New York strip... More

Ipanema is located in the back of the lobby, you cannot miss it. My family and I went to the one in Punta Cana, and I have to say, I much prefer this one. If you do not know how these restaurants work, the staff is more than happy to show you. The staff was very welcoming and encouraged us... More

Ipanema is a Brazilian restaurant located inside the Hard Rock Hotel, and was included in the all-inclusive deal. It has a huge variety of meats and the servers come around to every table with each type of food. The food and service are both great!

This Brazilian restaurant is similar to the traditional Brazilian - lots of selection, plenty of veggies, salad, etc, however, I'm used to being bombarded with lots of meat selections at one time being brought around the table. The meats were brought individually, one cut at a time, therefore if you didn't like the cut or doneness, you had to wait... More
