The ride along the driveway set the tone for the evening. Being treated at the restaurant lounge and taken to an outside table was great. And then our waiter Juan Carlos took over. Carlos was incredible in describing the drink and dinner options. The drinks were divine and the baked beets appetizer and dinner of Camerones in a big hot pot. The explanation was in line with the quality and quantity as explained by Juan Carlos. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for a romantic dinner. A bonus is sharing the site with Joya a Cirque de Soliel specially built facility with a great performance.

We ate here 3 times in 3 weeks, always trying something new. They have an inventive cocktail menu with some very good drinks! The kibis appetizer is wonderful to share-3 pieces but they will add more if there are more people in your party. Bean cream soup is tasty and a good portion size. Cactus salad is very fresh with a light dressing. Cochinita pibil is excellent and if you want to share, go for one of the molcajete bowls- they are outstanding. For fish the tikin is superb. Friendly, fun servers and spotlessly clean. Highly recommend.

We ate here before the Joya show. The food and the service was outstanding. My husband and I shared the chicken stone bowl and it was delicious. Very large portion for two. Great setting overlooking the lagoon. There is a flame show in the lagoon at dark.

This is an amazing restaurant and bar. We had wonderful cocktails before our dining experience at Joya. The bar scene is vibrant, the atmosphere is exciting, the servers are friendly and efficient and the decor and seating areas are unique. We were told that the food is excellent as well.

Ate at this restaurant right across from the Circque du Soleil theater presenting Joya. Beautiful setting, wonderful weather and the food was tasty, service was attentive and prices are reasonable. A definite alternative to the in-theater dining, and located about 150 feet from the theater. Highly recommended.
