This wonderful restaurant can be both elegant and casual. Creative and beautiful employing a variety of spices that can be adjusted to your tastes. I can't handle 'hot' spices and they were accommodating without comprise to the flavor. We enjoyed several nights dining at their bar that overlooks the ocean and captures sunset. Highly recommend

This place was maravilloso. All menu items are truly authentic regional Mexican cuisine. Nothing we had here was less than spectacular. The waiter was super nice, informative and personable. He recommended the churros for dessert!! Come on!!! Churros?!?! Yes, churros. And they were one of the best desserts I ate while in Mexico. And I don't do dessert.

Located on the beach at Rosewood Mayakoba, with great views of the sea and beach. Excellent menu and food. Just wish it was open for breakfast !

We ate twice at Punta Bonita while we were staying at the Rosewood. It has a lovely view of the ocean and, although some people might find the outdoor seating area too breezy at times, we loved it (and indoor seating is of course an option). We felt the meals here - which the hotel classifies as more traditional Mexican... More

My husband and I ate here a few times while staying in Mayakoba. Beach snacks of ceviche and corn on the cob was good. Dinner of filet mignon with mole amarillo was amazing! The mix of roast and fresh veggies on the side were a refreshing combo. The fish tacos for lunch were quite good as well. Pass on the... More

We recently stayed at the resort and ate at this restaurant several times. Whether you are in the mood for snacks and drinks during the day while relaxing by beach and pool, or need something casual at night - this is your place. Service and food was excellent. We also happen to be there one day when a bad storm... More

What's better than being served food and beverages with awesome service and complete attention to detail. Dinner staff was lovely, but this location can be very breezy at night and the point of dining here is to enjoy the outdoors, so if it is windy - go elsewhere.

We stay at this resort and always eat at this restaurant. It is on the beach and overlooks the pool. Cocktails and food are prepared with care. Come in shorts or dress up. Seafood is always good.

Amazing experience here... incredible Mexican wine suggested by our server. Best margarita that we had in the area... but we both like them a bit on the tart side, and were squeezing limes into them. Teresa, the floor manager, came over right away with lime juice to make our task easier. Food was quite good... and again, some of the... More

This is the restaurant by the beach at Rosewood. Fantastic for both dinner and lunch. Very authentic, but upscale mexican items. Not to be missed are the quesadillas and fajitas. Ask for a glass of rose and revel in the delight that there are also ice cubes made from the same wine to keep it cold on a warm day!
