For those who want a good meal Cancún is a gastronomic pleasure for foodies and everyone else. The popular Hotel Zone and downtown Cancun offer countless restaurants serving all styles of cuisine.
The Zona Hotelera’s key servings range from MX$165 to MX$338 per person for large breakfasts and brunch-buffets. Most restaurants, about 2 pm, open for lunch and stay open until midnight in general
Here are six of the best choices.
La La Habichuela Sunset. Habichuela Sunset and La Habichuela, its sister house, both offer fine Mayan, Mexican, Caribbean and International cuisine in the downtown area of Cancun. Moreover, its construction is influenced by ancient Mayan architecture and the famous Yucatan hacienda and the beautiful garden lies directly on the Lagoon Nichupte.
Lorenzillos. The Riviera Maya is one of the world’s best destinations for eating lobster, and Lorenzillo’s most popular spot for live lobsters is in Cancún. For over 30 years this iconic restaurant has been the hometown of Cancún; also a lobster farm.
Hacienda Sisal. Hacienda Sisal is a favorite restaurant among the travelers of Cancun, constructed following the haciendas of the Yucatan Peninsula. You can also choose from a variety of dishes, including fajitas, burritos and tacos, in combination with authentic Mexican and Mayan cuisine.
Crab House. A beautiful setting in the Nichupte Lagoon area of the Cancun Hotel District, this luxurious seafood restaurant offers spectacular views of the water from its outdoor terrace. A variety of seafoods including lobster, crab, calamaris, shrimps, tuna and much more are served at Crab House.
Prime Steak House Harry and Raw Bar. This upscale restaurant serves prime cuts for USDA beef, dry-aged beef and Kobe beef. The dry-aging beef has more flavor and is tender than the dry-aging process that is not performed. Kobe beef, as well as many Kosher steaks from Japan, Australia and USA are available. Kobe beef hot dogs are available, burgers, sliders and even tacos for those who want beef but are looking for something else.
Irori. This restaurant, located off Tulum road, near the busy Plaza Las Americas shopping center, offers the best sushi in town. This long known favourite from Cancún has a trendy exterior, but you’ll find a large menu of classics like Sashimi and Tempura inside this clever restaurant.
