I cannot thank Christian enough for giving us such attentive and incredible service the entire night. From the moment we walked through the door, we were treated like royalty. Each course was expertly crafted and explained in detail. I have been to Bib Gourmand, 1,...2, and 3 Michelin starred restaurants around the world, and this place easily deserves a star of its own. Each dish was so flavorful and beautifully presented. The drinks were stunning and wine recommendations were perfect. On a personal note, their short rib dish reminded me so much of my grandmother's cooking (rest her soul), that I actually got goosebumps and wanted to cry. I've never had such a visceral experience to food before and it is something I'll cherish forever. If you're in the area and want a special evening, look no further than Maria Dolores.More

My wife and I had high expectations for a wonderful experience on her birthday since there is so much hype about this restaurant. To start, the staff lacks hospitality and we felt like we were not welcome in their restaurant. The waiter placed our napkins...on our lap, dropped off the menus and we didn’t see him again for 20 minutes. The biggest disappointment was the lack of a reasonable gluten-free birthday dessert for my wife who has a gluten allergy. The waiter offered two fruit sorbet options and then brought out a lame sorbet with no happy birthday message. Chef Nunez should take some lessons from the other Chefs on property who take absolute pleasure in delighting guests no matter what. Chef Velia and Chef Albert know what it means to delight a guest!! Shame on the staff at Maria Dolores!More

Staff was very friendly, professional, attentive, treating guests like a celebrity. Very nice interior design. Most of the food was delicious but one of my courses was unfortunately absolutely not eatable! Maybe it’s just me as I could see that all dinners around look very...satisfied but it unfortunately a bit spoiled the overall experience.More

This restaurant was really good, but not more so than the other restaurants at the resort. The additional touches (very attentive waitstaff, amuse bouche and palate cleanser, slightly more inventive food) were appreciated, but if you're not interested in those little extras, you'll probably be...just fine with the included restaurants.More

We’re staying at Hotel Atelia Playa Mujeres and made a reservation to come eat here at Maria Dolores. It was one of the few restaurants that required a reservation here and I see why: the only thing better than this meal was the service. Our...server was Andres, and he was friendly, conversational, and funny. From placing napkins on our laps (with tongs) to explaining the culture behind of some of the dishes we tasted, Andres and the rest of the staff deserve 5++ stars. Now the food: We started with some burrata which came with an eggplant purée. It was refreshing and a great start to our meal. We then tried soft shell crab tacos, which we ended up ordering seconds of and two tostados: sea scallops + beef carpaccio. Sooo delicious. For our main course, we had the duck and filet mignon - both of which were incredible cuts of meat with perfectly paired sides of sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, bordelaise sauce and mushrooms. The chocolate hazelnut dessert was probably the best dessert I’ve ever had. Wish I was in Mexico to visit here more often tbh.More
