Located next to the Cirque de Soleil theater, this is a favorite spot for theatergoers and non-theater goers alike. Whether just cocktails , or dessert and a capuchino or coffee or a full meal you won't be disappointed.

Absolutely amazing setting. Don't miss out on this incredible experience. Our waiter recommended our meals and we were all completely impressed with the traditional Yukatan dishes he served us. This is a must if you are staying at Vidanta or attending the Cirque show.
