Restaurants in CancunMexican cuisine is recognised as one of the three most popular food styles in the world and Cancun is as good a place as any to sample authentic Mexican meals. The city's status as a celebrated holiday destination also ensures that there is a huge variety of international cuisines on offer, and although eating out in Cancun can be expensive it is also extremely rewarding.
The Yucatan Peninsula has its own unique flavours and specialities and Yucatan cuisine is often less spicy than that from other regions in Mexico, making it a good option for foreigners with sensitive palettes. On the other hand, those who relish the burn should look out for dishes spiced with hot habanera chilies!
Seafood restaurants dominate in Cancun, which should be no surprise considering the quality and quantity of fresh seafood in the region. Popular seafood dishes in Cancun include a variety of lobster specialities and ceviche (a kind of raw seafood salad). For fine dining there are many upmarket restaurants. Some of the most highly acclaimed can be found in the Ritz Carlton Cancun Hotel and in the Fiesta Americana Gran Coral Beach Hotel. In downtown Cancun there are some hidden gems and the far cheaper fare found where the locals eat is often the best authentically Mexican food you can find in the city. Tulum Avenue and Yaxchilan Avenue have some of the best restaurants.
