The 5 Best Restaurants in Cancún

By Olivia Cuccaro

By Olivia Cuccaro

Once a deserted island, Cancún has quickly become a vacation destination on the Caribbean sea. While development of the area did not begin until the 1970s, the Mexican paradise is now home to many luxury resorts and fine dining establishments. With unparalleled Mexican cuisine at the forefront, Cancún has embraced an array of cooking styles in its dining scene. These are our picks for the best restaurants in Cancún.

Tempo By Martin Berasategui

With his namesake restaurant voted into our Top 100 Restaurants in the World, it’s fitting that Martin Berasategui’s Cancún restaurant should make its way onto this list. In the Paradisus by Melia resort, Tempo elegantly presents the Basque flavors that Chef Berasategui is known for. A tasting menu includes exquisite dishes such as roasted foie gras, grilled butterfish and slow cooked beef cheek.

Restaurante Benazuza

At the Grand Oasis Sens, Restaurant Benazuza is a Cancún favorite for fine dining. In the kitchen, molecular gastronomy is the focus. The menu is comprised of modern cuisine with Mexican influences and a Degustation Menu is on offer as well.

Du Mexique by Sonya Grimond

In the heart of Cancún, Du Mexique expertly combines French and Mexican flavors in an upscale atmosphere. Book the Chef’s Table for an up-close experience with the chefs at work. The intimate setting serves only 20 guests per evening, treating the select few to a gourmet menu that changes daily.

Puerto Madero

For stunning views of the Cancún seascapes, Puerto Madero is a must. Heralded for its mastery of seafood, the restaurant features an outdoor patio that’s perfect for enjoying the warm Mexican climate. The menu is comprised of seafood dishes from king crab tacos to tempura, while also offering steaks such as American wagyu.

La Dolce Vita

As any vacation requires a truly exceptional Italian meal, the best around can be found at La Dolce Vita. Candlelit tables make this the ideal spot for a romantic evening during your trip to Cancún. Pair a glass from the extensive wine list with a variety of classic Italian dishes. Enjoy tagliata de manzo, calamari steak or a linguine frutti di mare.
