We stopped in for lunch on a Monday. We were the only people in the restaurant. The service was a bit slow (we think they had to open up the kitchen), but the food and the view was excellent and the staff were very friendly. It's a beautiful little hotel too.

Several reviews we read about Casa de los Suenos restaurant (next door) food were not good, and suggested Maria's Kan-Kin for dinner. As I said, I don't get it, I don't get the food reviews for this place. Great views, but the food was so so. I had shrimp tacos and my wife couldn't remember what she had because it... More

We were recommended this restaurant for dinner by our own hotel. We were not disappointed! You walk through pretty gardens to a small area, part open part covered, with the most fabulous views out to sea and over their private beach. We chose to sit at the water's edge as sun set. Just beautiful. We chose calamares to start -... More

Local cafe with great food for locals and tourists. Very pretty tropical setting to enjoy. It's a little difficult to find so I suggest you buy the great maps from Stephanie at the dive-shop near Barlitos. These maps show the exact route with written instructions where you should turn, etc.

We recently stopped in for dinner. While the views were spectacular service was less than stellar. The food was nicely prepared but very heavy on the salt. At the end of our meal we were told the card reader was broken. Would have been nice to know at start. In general a so so dinner overall.

Maria's Kan-Kin is a hidden gem tucked away in its own gorgeous oasis. The view is alluring - so much so that even while waiting for your food, you'll want to step onto the private beach and enjoy that sunset just in time for dinner. Where blue calm tranquil ocean meets vibrant orange glow from the setting sun, this place... More

Great atmosphere...and so off the beaten path. The Chef and staff were very interactive and you could tell they love what they do. I ordered the lobster; my husband ordered the fish. The presentation was beautiful; however my amazing lobster was overly salted. I would recommend telling the chef to go light on the salt. Otherwise... the bread, wine, and... More

My wife and I had spent the morning snorkeling and decided that we were hungry. We were driving the south end of Isla Mujeres near Punta Sur and saw a sign for Marias Kan Kin. We decided to check it out and what a great out of the way experience. It was off the beaten path, so we were actually... More
