We had great food, great ambiance and great service. We are the queso fundido which was an excellent appetizer served in a beautiful dish. Then my wife ate the San Juan salad with extra tuna which was perfectly cooked. I had the poblano chicken which was excellent. For dessert we shared the churros platter which had a lovely presentation and... More

Sunday night... we walked in just after 8PM. We stood at the hostess stand for 2-3 minutes while a cook peered out at us from the kitchen. Someone finally came to the hostess stand and took us to a table. After about 5 minutes a woman quickly dropped-off napkins and utensils and then disappeared. Another 10 minutes passed and a...

Kondesa was so good, we went twice during our nine day trip. Wonderful drinks and high end dining in a relaxing rain forest like surrounding. We had the guacamole trio--all delicious and creative. We also had the lionfish cakes and queso fundido as appetizers. Their entrees were delicious as well--including a "catch of the day" enchilada dish, various pastas, and... More

We ate at Kondesa on our first night in Cozumel, and fell in love with the ambiance and the food. We had the lionfish cakes, which were amazing, and we both had red snapper, although we chose different preparations. The menu had so many great options, and the food was absolutely delicious. The service was great, and our waiter was... More

The food is great! The ambiance is to die for and the staff is wow! The complete package and very affordable. Try the Corn Bread Dessert which is their specialty, it will not disappoint.

I had a wonderful meal last evening at Kondesa. The al fresco courtyard is stylish & intimate without being a bit stuffy. Some nice house trance going at just the right background level. But you want to know about the food, right? As a solo diner I couldn't do justice to the full menu. I chose the evening's snapper special.... More

This was our favorite Cozumel restaurant. Super friendly, unhurried service. Great open-air courtyard setting. Creative menu, nice modern presentation. Really enjoyed the night. Definitely recommend it! A+

Lionfish cakes? Mezcal camarones with mushrooms? A fine tuna blend or even a hombre muerto cocktail with mezcal and jamaican reduction? Kondesa serves and nails it. They top off everyone on the isle of Cozumel!
