All kinds of food
La Dolce Vita
Home-made pasta, fresh seafood, and the owners' personal attention... What could be better?!? Top quality Italian food (at reasonable prices) is served in the air-conditioned dining room or on the outdoor terrace. The restaurant has a sunset view over the lagoon (also great during a full moon), so you might want to get reservations during high season.
The restaurant offers live soft jazz every night (except Sundays), excellent classic Italian dishes, such as green ribbons of pasta with lobster medallions, water views, candlelit tables, lace tablecloths, and pretty furniture... perfect for a romantic evening in Cancun.

Address: Savio's Bistro de La Dolce Vita is in the Cancun Hotel Zone, Blvd. Kukulcan KM 15 across from the Gran Meliá Hotel
Locals call it the best restaurant in town. Try it yourself! Mathilde has a lot to offer: delicious cakes and coffee (cappuccino) but it's also a perfect spot to have dinner. Try the Swiss cheese fondue or the 'filete de marisco'. On Saturday they have a dazzling buffet and early birds should have breakfast at Mathilde: fresh orange juice and self-made bread, cinnamon rolls with raisons and nuts. Don't miss the 'pain aux chocolat'.
Address: Mathilde is located in Plaza las Americas
Upscale Mexican. This restaurant has the ambiance of an old tequila destileria. The walls are stylish decorated and tells you the history of tequila. La Destileria features a museum with hundreds of varieties of tequilas and several ways to drink them. Specialties: start with the seafruit salad with mango sauce on a bed of greens. Main dish: beef filet in a achotte tequila sauce and three colored rice. Don't use your common sense while choosing your dessert. Just order 'chocolate suicide'.

Cajun, Creole and international plates in a marvelous Louisiana style garden setting. Very exotic atmosphere with live jazz music.
