After wandering about for a bit trying to find it, we eventually got to this place after seeing its good reviews on here. First impressions were very good, it's all outside in a sort of grotto/garden with lovely trees - especially a gigantic banyan - very well lit and great ambience for a romantic meal. We were greeted nicely and... More

Amazing guacamole! Everything here was fantastic. We stayed on Cozumel for a week and the was easily the best restaurant we ate at. We eat here twice it was that good. Many of the restaurants cater to the cruise ship crowd which is why bad places on the island have so many good reviews. Let's face it, the typical cruise... More

Nice ambiance, great service with nice relaxing music but the best is the delicious & beautifully presented food. We ordered 3 guacamole sampler appetizer that was different from each other yet all delicious. For main course we had tuna in corn sauce that was delicious and the angus steak just melted in my mouth. Tender, creamy with slight kick to... More

Great meal, great service great location. Nice courtyard with gentle breeze made dinner a wonderful experience. The catch of the day w/tomatillo sauce was awesome as was the pastas, which really surprised our table. Servers were on top of everything, but they should have as only 3 tables there with slow season. To me the best dish was the churros... More

We had heard how great the Kondesa Restaurant was, but we were a little disappointed. First of all, we could not get a cold Sol beer. They were all out of cold Sol beer! I was told that I could have a warm beer. REALLY! Second, we sat in the patio area and we were getting pummeled by these large... More

We have dined at this restaurant on one other trip. Unfortunately after ordering and eating the pescadera of the day, I was violently ill within 1 hour! I will not be able to eat red snapper for quite sometime and cannot recommend this establishment.

Thanks to other reviews we stumbled into Kondesa on a recent dive and golf trip to Cozumel. It is a few blocks off the water behind the Mega. It was a fortunate pick. The outdoor garden setting is ideal for a couple having an intimate dinner. Kondesa specializes in fish and they did not disappoint. We both had snapper after... More

We found this by chance and were so happy with our experience. The fish dishes are outstanding and can rival any fine dining in NYC. The setting is casual on a large patio with big trees plants and outdoor lights. We wanted to go back and try more of their specialties, but ended up at their other restaurant, Kinta -... More
