La Fonda del Zancudo

Av Uxmal, Mza 02 Lte 33, SM 3, Benito Juárez, 77500 Cancún, Q.R., Mexico

What was once an abandoned house on one of downtown Cancún’s central avenues is now an outdoor garden for Mediterranean cuisine. Each night the small regular menu is complemented by a list of daily specials on the chalkboard, as well as innovative, high-end cocktails and desserts not found elsewhere in town. Dishes—like the homemade empanadas or the artisanal ravioli stuffed with plantain and goat cheese—are made with mostly local organic products. The garden restaurant’s alluring ambience—twinkly lights, rafter-strung lanterns, and bougainvillea that climbs the walls beneath the stars—beckons you to a fairy-tale evening perfect for romance. Dinner only.
