• The Club Grill: Cancún’s most celebrated restaurant feels like a dinner party at a European nobleman’s manor, from cocktails in an opulent anteroom to foie gras and roast meat that would satisfy after a fox hunt. It pulls off old-world decadence without being stuffy, and the food approaches perfection.
  • Labná: At this downtown Cancún temple to Yucatecan cuisine, you’ll find poc chuc, cochinita pibil, and sopa de lima in their purest form, along with other intriguing local dishes you probably haven’t heard of, such as sikil-pak, an addictive pumpkin-seed sauce—all prepared expertly and with great care.
  • Julia Mia: Looking like it was lifted from the Hotel Zone and dropped downtown, this cutting-edge resto pushes traditional Mexican cuisine up a notch. From black bean soup to elaborate meat or seafood molcajetes (mixed grill), its recipes were handed down through generations and injected with contemporary zing.
