For those who are fans of the culinary art, here is a list of highly recognized restaurants in the Riviera Maya that are famous for their seasoning, their services and their originality when presenting iconic dishes from the region.
Axiote in Playa del Carmen
More than an ingredient, it is the peninsular road; the backbone of the Mayan gastronomy that by dint of becoming a message is the basis of complex and delicate stews.
It is pure sophistication that in each seed reveals origin and destiny.
And it is also Mexican cuisine, purity sometimes incomprehensible but always endearing.
This restaurat is located on Calle 34 Norte, between 5 ave. and 10 ave. Playa del Carmen Q. Roo. (984) 8031727 and is named by many newspapers and blogs as part of the best restaurants in the Riviera Maya and even Quintana Roo.
Hartwood in Tulum
THE HARTWOOD MENU CHANGE DAILY BASED ON THE SEA AND THE LAND THAT OFFERS NEW CROPS EVERY DAY.
During the week, we travel for hours in the Yucatan to markets and farms where we collect ingredients that allow us to offer our customers a new and exciting taste of a community that has existed for centuries. All these aspects come together every day and allow a humble way of cooking in an environment that we are truly grateful to be part of.
This restaurant is located on the Tulum-Boca Paila KM 7.6 highway and is named by many newspapers and blogs as part of the best restaurants in the Riviera Maya.
Le Chique in Puerto Morelos
If it is true that the first bite is with your eyes, Le Chique in Azul Sensatori is a party in every way. From the moment you arrive, the seductive decor offers a visceral flavor of what is to come: an experiential and multisensory culinary adventure that will challenge any notion of how good cuisine should look, feel and taste.
This is the modernist kitchen, where nothing is as it seems. The food is deconstructed and then rebuilt to resemble something else. The spheres are cocktails. The starters are disguised as dessert. In fact, everything on the seasonal tasting menu at Le Chique was designed to baffle, amuse and surprise you. Add a focus on regional ingredients, sustainable farming practices and available wine pairings, and you will have a dining experience that is both a visual feast and a culinary triumph.
Lonrezillos in Cancún
Legend has it that by May 1683, when a French pirate named Lorencillo and his companion Agramont, landed on the coast of Villa Rica Veracruz, after browsing for months, looking for the best restaurant to eat without finding it, caused that in anger, the pirate would end up with prominent personalities of the social world of the time.
The vision of their CEO and the dream of giving his city the best restaurant “Just in case some day the hungry pirate would come back” give life to the first Lorenzillo’s restaurant that opened its doors in June 1979, marking an entire parteaguas in the culinary and social life of the port of Veracruz.
