Ritz-Carlton Cancún, Retorno del Rey 36, Blvd. Kukulcán, Km 13.5, Zona Hotelera, Cancún, Quintana Roo, 77500
Sink your toes into the sand at Cancún's only on-the-beach restaurant where the impeccable service matches the incredible setting. The romantic ambiance caters to couples, and many of the seafood dishes are created for two. Silk curtains drape palapas (open-air huts), each centered with an illuminated table adorned with seashells. For a delicious sampling, try the seafood platter of shrimp, oysters, tuna tartar, king crab, and lobster tail. A variety of steaks and salads are also available. For a little bit of everything, ask for the tasting menu. The mini dessert shooters are the perfect way to extend your dinner-with-a-view; be sure to head to oceanfront beds after your meal to relax and digest. Call ahead, since the restaurant is at the mercy of the weather. www.ritzcarlton.com. Reservations essential. No lunch.
