La Cantina at Vidanta Riviera Maya
Try the appetizer with the dried steak, and bean dip.
Great restaurant with wonderful service. Unique take on Mexican cuisine. Loved the unique salsa choices
Best Enchiladas we have ever had and we live in Texas ;) amazing soups. Ceviche and fajitas. Yummy! Lamb tacos! Good wine selection. Beautiful outdoor seating
First they tried to seat 3 of us at a huge round table. No way we could talk and hear each other. So we waited at the bar for half an hour.
The food was average at best, especially given the price. The beef fajitas were rubbery and tasteless. The chicken flautas and chicken quesadilla were good. If you want authentic Mexican street food at the Vidanta eat at Waves N’ Tacos. I would not eat at La Cantina again.
Started the evening with Christina the mixologist creating an experience making the Catrina and Carmelita cocktails table side on her cart. She really enjoys her job and the results show that.
We began the meal with the chicken soup and salad. The soup was so good we went back the next day for more. For entrees we had grilled octopus and beef enchiladas. I was concerned about the octopus being cooked correctly so the chef had me sample it before accepting it. It was perfect. Couple that with a very friendly staff and it made for a delightful evening.
Yes, if you’re on a budget it is on the pricey side. Also the volume of the music mix is a little high but I guess that depends on how much you have been drinking. I definitely recommend La Cantina at VidantaResort Riviera Maya.
the experience was wonderful! we recommend anyone to make reservations and experience the beautiful views and delicious food!
Went 3 times in a week. Amazing. Not much for kids but they are very accommodating in regards taking out spicy peppers, etc.
We waited for over an hour for our food; it came cold. It obviously sat somewhere undelivered.
Great outdoor dining venue. Good food with incredible ambiance.
Christian and the team provided great service. The food and drink were awesome. a good value too.
Excellent food and service by far at Vidanta. Our server Socrates took good care of us. The tequila tasting was really good. We tried their Ceviche in octopus ink and it was fantastic. The enchilada in red sauce and the lobster tacos were scrumptious. To top it was our tree leches.
Food was great. Service was wonderful. Only wish they had outdoor dining.
Best place for Mexican food at Vidanta imo. One of the places that require a reservation and it is a quaint and small restaurant, so plan ahead. Several excellent appetizer courses, we had the guacamole as well as the shrimp with cornbread. Fresh fish and traditional Mexican entrees, and great desserts. We left satisfied. I only marked it down as the music is pretty loud (random MTV videos on a big tv) personally I think jazz would be a better fit.
Very nice and interesting restaurant. You can dine inside, where the decor and ambience is both traditional and hip at the same time, or outside in the Market area for a more laid back atmosphere.
The menu also had both traditional Mexican fare and upscale, unique offerings. Good price range as well.
The staff was very attentive and friendly.
The ambiance was wonderful at the Beachclub outside of the restaurant! The food was good, but not the best compared to the other restaurants at the resort. The service was also not as good as the other finer dining restaurants. We were not offered a second drink throughout the entire dinner. The servers were very friendly and the food came out quickly so perhaps these particular individuals were newer at their job and were a bit overwhelmed with the business of the restaurant at that time.
Great food and outside seating was great. Christian was our waiter and he was fantastic and attentive to our needs. Overall it was great.
La Cantina is a very nice place to eat with great food at reasonable prices
Excellent food and most excellent service by Socrates!
Good food, a bit overpriced. Music was much too loud, couldn’t hold a dinner conversation over it. Service was good.
Didn’t care for the music videos. Kind of loud too. They did turn the volume down eventually which helped
The food & margarita’s were delicious. Christian our waiter was excellent!
The staff was attentive. When we first arrived I could not hear the waiter above the music level. After a few complaints from clients the music was turned down to a reasonable level.
Loved the place. Our server socritese was fabulous. We loved his cultural explanation of the roof and the tequila and his personal stories.
Socrates our waiter was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and truly cared. Definitely will encourage more people to go there and ask for Socrates. Food was also AMAZING!!!
We did the tequila tasting earlier in the day and decided to have dinner later that evening. The service, food and drinks were excellent. The only rub, the black walls around the room from earlier in the day were actually walls of tv's featuring music videos at volume levels we thought better suited for a lesser setting. We could talk and hear each other but we did have to listen intently to our server. 2 notches down on volume and we could have gotten past the videos. Server was happy to answer all our questions and made several recommendations including a tequila tasting not on the menu! Good times and a great tequila offering!
The music was very off putting. We didn’t enjoy the club music. It was loud, repetitive and boring and ruined a perfectly wonderful spot. AND we were outside! I would never sit inside and be tormented by the large tv screens and even louder music. It is so sad because the location is amazing and the food delicious, but we will not go back. We are not 20 something years old and are looking for a more relaxing environment.
Our server was amazing. He made awesome recommendations. The appetizer with the beans, shredded beef, and dried beef was fantastic! The music was a bit loud, but otherwise was a great meal!
Great service ,great food very tasty and delicious
Excellent meal and great service, enjoy the atmosphere and the location
Best guacamole and fajitas we've ever had! Very flavorful! Server (I believe his name was Socrates) was attentive and informative about the food served. We will definitely be back next year when we go to Vidanta at Riviera Maya!
It was so cold in the restaurant. I noticed quite a few tables of people requested to be moved from one area to another. My husband an I switched seats at our table to no avail. When our food came out on those plates that should have been hot and sizzling, our food was cold. I ordered the enchiladas and he ordered the fajitas. Cold, cold, cold, just like the air conditioning in the restaurant. I sent mine back to be heated up. My husband did not as he feels bad if he complains. After 20 minutes, my dinner came back. It was a new dinner and was exactly like it should have been the first time. It was delicious. However, it was still too cold in the restaurant to eat in comfort. We finally finished and took the remainder of our wine out on the patio to finish.
Miguel was our waiter and he was fantastic. The food dishes were also very good. My favorite was the ice cream mixed with tequila!
Was not impressed with the food. The lobster tacos fell apart you could not even eat them. The shrimp fajitas were pretty much just huge pieces of onion.
The food and service were good. We sat outdoors which we would have enjoyed much more without the loud technopop music. We almost requested to be moved back indoors due to the annoyance of the music.
This is one of the best restaurants on the Vidanta property. Note that this high end authentic Mexican cuisine, not a Taco Bell.
Lugar muy a gusto, excelente servicio, calidad excelente de alimentos, excelente servicio
Muy bonito. Muy rica comida. Se siente el orgullo mexicano de nuestros saberes y artesanía.
Best meal on property.... excellent service! Food was absolutely delicious and everyone loved it!
