Cancun is a gastronomic delight for foodies and anyone else who enjoys a delicious meal. Countless restaurants serving all types of cuisine can be found in the famed Hotel Zone and in downtown Cancun. Surprisingly, there are only a few oceanfront restaurants in the HoZo (Hotel Zone) which are not located in a resort, but you’ll find an abundance of fine, waterfront eateries overlooking Nichupte Lagoon, which provides a spectaular view of Cancun's unparalleled sunsets.
In addition to many seafood restaurants and steakhouses you’ll also find eateries that specialize in Mexican, Italian, Thai, Indian, French, Yucatecan and even Belgian cuisine. There are a number of AAA Five-Diamond Award winning restaurants in Cancun, including The Club Grill and Fantino, both of which are located in The Ritz-Carlton Cancun.
Some of Cancun's restaurants, like La Habichuela, located in downtown Cancun next to Parque las Palapas (Palapas Park) have been open for many years and have a proven record of excellence. Others, like Les Cepages, also located downtown, have only been open for a few years but have quickly become extremely popular with both tourists and locals due to their superior service and delicious food. If you don't want to stray far from your resort, Puerto Madero, arguably one of Cancun's best and most popular restaurants, is an Argentinian steakhouse located in the Hotel Zone.
