Best Restaurants in Cancun
Cancun has a huge variety of restaurants, offering food and
prices to suit nearly any taste or budget. The Hotel Zone is
dominated by international chains like Hard Rock Cafe, TGI
Friday''s, Tony Roma''s, Rainforest Cafe, and Señor Frog''s, however
there are a number of very good Mexican restaurants in Cancun
serving local food. The restaurants in downtown Cancun tend to be
cheaper and more authentic, though they often lack the sheen of the
more touristy establishments. Good food is available from
streetside taco stands as well.
Local Yucatan cuisine combines some of the best elements of
Spanish and Mexican dishes, including specialties like
(tortillas with fried black beans, chicken and
(suckling pig baked in banana leaves with
annatto sauce), and freshly-caught local seafood.
Some of the most popular restaurants in Cancun include the
cheap-and-cheerful seafood joint Santos Mariscos, the lagoon-side
Mexican restaurant La Destilería (which serves more than 150 kinds
of tequila), and the Mayan-inspired creations at La Habichuela.
