Restaurants and Dining Guide for Where to Eat in Riviera Maya

Restaurants in Riviera Maya

Although there are many highly recommended restaurants in the Riviera Maya, they are not as popular as Cancun's restaurants for the simple reason that, due to the Riviera Maya's length, it takes quite some time to reach them. Most hotels are planned around a 'village' concept and feature fantastic all inclusive programs, therefore you are guaranteed wonderful cuisine and service without even leaving your resort.


Above all, enjoy the variety that your hotel will definitely offer, as many of the best places to eat in the Riviera Maya are located in these resorts. You can be sure that you're palate is being pampered by the cuisine of one of the most creative, imaginative chefs in all Mexico.


If, however, you are a more adventurous traveler who likes to leave the resort and experience the 'real' Mexico, then in the beautiful towns of Puerto Morelos, Puerto Aventuras and Tulum, you'll find wonderful independent restaurants to suit every taste and budget. Playa del Carmen is probably the most culinary diverse city, offering a huge variety of restaurants ranging from delicious regional Yucatecan fare to refined international haute cuisine.


John Gray in Puerto Morelos

Riviera Maya RestaurantsChef John Gray brought to the Riviera Maya his knowledge and original recipes in order to enrich the dining alternatives in Puerto Morelos. This lovely beach town, located between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, less than half hour away from each city, is home to two of John Gray's restaurants. One is on the seafront, called La Suegra de John Gray, and the other is right in the heart of the town, called John Gray's Kitchen. Both offer diners enticing dishes that showcase the extraordinary seafood of this Caribbean shore combined with Mexican ingredients such as tequila, habanero and chipotle peppers or topped with exotic sauces like sweet mango salsa.



El Pequeno Buenos Aires

Riviera Maya RestaurantsLocated on the main street of the booming, popular town of Tulum, this restaurant is a magnificent option to enjoy exquisite soups, salads, and steaks served in generous, mouthwatering portions. The restaurant has a relaxed, casual atmosphere with an enthusiastic and friendly staff. You can accompany your favorite Argentinean specialty with a full-bodied wine from the list and savor a decadent dessert. After your meal, have a relaxing conversation while drinking freshly brewed coffee and enjoying the welcoming atmosphere of Tulum.
