10BEST Says

Asian, Downtown: While patrons can order Asian staples like fried rice and stir-fried chicken or beef at Yamamoto, the real draw is the sushi. With so many seafood restaurants in the city, it's surprising that there are not more sushi bars in town, but even if there were, this one would still be a crowd pleaser. You can sit down right at the sushi bar and watch as expert chefs prepare your fresh feast right before your eyes. Take it easy on the food and sake so you can save room for the tempura ice cream.


Insider Tips

Asian, Downtown: "Rumor has it that the Prime Minister of Japan once ate here while in Cancun for an international convention. Ask the owners about it during your visit."

Best for Asian Because: Yamamoto is one of Cancun's oldest restaurants and was the city's first Japanese restaurant.

Best for Downtown Because: Yamamoto serves tasty traditional sushi and other Japanese dishes that incorporate local ingredients.
