Description: Our philosophy is a simple one: Quality over Quantity. Our menu is internationally inspired with hints of Mexican cuisine on every plate. We truly believe in sourcing the best ingredients possible, everything on the plate is there for a specific reason. Think of an orchestra, if every musician is great, but one is out of tune, it ruins the whole experience. So we concentrate on flavors over bland ; refinement over generic; and audacity over conventional. It’s what we do that defines us and it’s our passion that drives us!

You have to try this place!!! My wife and I went there solely off of the reviews. Our minds were blown by every dish. They were beautiful and super good. We had the caprese salad and loved every bite. we then had the coconut shrimp and fought over them:) My wife had the ravioli and I had the Pitana Steak. I had just paid $100 for a Gyangu steak the night before at another restaurant and this steak was much better. I am going back today to try the bison burger. The Owner/Chef Chris and his staff were very attentive and courteous. Overall I could not have found a better place to spend my fortieth birthday.

We went to Bear's Den based off of the reviews on Trip Advisor and it didn't dissapoint. Excellent food, plated well. But the best part of this restaurant was the tremendous service, the chef is super nice and gave us free dessert since we had some travel complications. Truly, it's a great place

I wish it was more of an indoor dining area - it would match the high quality of the food better. However, I genuinely enjoyed the experiance. I will go again the next time I'm in Cancun

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times now and the food is out of this world!!
The quality, taste and presentation is excellent, very high end, their produce is fresh and seem to find it somewhere special because I have not seen it anywhere else in Cancun (including all super markets) so that’s a plus. I would recommend it to anyone trying to find a good bang for their buck and away from the zona hotelera.

This is truly one of the best restaurants I've even been to. I never submit reviews online, but this restaurant made me want to post something for the first time. The chef, waitstaff, and manager are all amazing. We ended up going their twice on our 6 day trip to Cancun because we just couldn't get enough of the food. The chef gave us an amazing dessert platter for free on our first visit, and the manager gave us free shots of tequilla on our second visit. He even remembered what type of tequilla we had ordered a few days before. Great attention to detail, service, and food. Do not miss this place during your time in Cancun.
