This is (WAS) my favorite restaurant in Cozumel. Usually we "gladly" pay the price that Kondesa requires to experience their atmosphere, creative cocktails, friendly-attentive staff and outstanding menu. We scheduled Kondesa this past Friday night as a celebration and send-off for our family. We dined at numerous fine establishments this week and numerous times during the evening I wished I... More

Other reviews here led us to Kondesa and what a find. The garden seating was magically lit at dusk and our experience with the fresh seafood, especially the red snapper was deliciously prepared. The staff were kind enough to find a space for us despite a full house and the warm atmosphere continued with a dining companion in their happy... More

We've been here two nights in a row. First, we tried their couple's tasting menu. Delicious. Perhaps a bit pricy ... Next day we had been out catching fish and we dropped by Kondesa and asked if they would cook our fish for us. So they did - and again, very tasty! Restaurant is an open courtyard - seating under...

Cozumel is hard if you are looking for quality outside the hundreds of sports bars. This is one of the few gems that deliver a genuine experience. The setting is a nice garden and the cuisine is Mexican presented in a modern way. Everything we ordered was extremely well prepared and tasty. The service was perfect. Don't miss this if... More

Don't miss a visit to this restaurant with a lovely garden setting. We had a perfect evening with a nice breeze and wonderful food. There were two fish of the day choices served several different ways. My spinach salad with shrimp was a perfect entree for me. I just wish they took the shrimp tails off when they are served...

Have visited for the last three years. Very nice place to celebrate an occasion (or any other time). Nice open air dinning. I feel the meals lean more to the "high brow" and are very nice.

Tuna was the fresh fish for the week and it was fantastically prepared. Mine was with pepitas and my husband had the Zuma, with a spicier sauce. The salad with pears and grapefruit was very fresh and tasty. The service is very friendly and efficient but not pushy. The setting is so tranquil in a garden/courtyard filled with huge trees...

Service, ambience and food were all excellent. We started out with an order of lion fish cakes, shared, then Catch of the day was tuna and we ordered it in the Zuma style. It was barely seared and oh so tasty. We ordered churros for dessert with a double espresso and Baileys. The perfect finish to the evening.
