The Mayakoba Eating places
Among the best elements of the Mayakoba expertise is attending to dine at any of the eating places throughout the 4 properties contained in the gates. There are over 25 eating experiences unfold throughout the resorts. Examine them right here! Not solely can you’re taking a straightforward golf cart from one property to the following, however you possibly can cost all of the meals to your property resort room.
We did make reservations for all 4 of our dinners, as was really helpful. We tried to push considered one of our reservations again by an hour and so they weren’t ready to take action as a result of it was fully booked, so I feel the reservations are mandatory. I additionally consider that you’ll be able to make reservations at your personal resort (60 days out) and the others (30 days out) and (2 weeks) for the Rosewood, so they provide precedence to the house resort friends. We didn’t have any hassle getting the highest spots!
What I cherished about our dinners is that they had been all very completely different and felt very very similar to a eating expertise. If there’s one factor I stay for once I journey it’s a meals expertise! We had been additionally very impressed with the meals! All 4 of our dinners had been glorious.
I took so many movies, however I didn’t get sufficient nonetheless images of every of the eating places, and even every part we ate. Take a look at my Instagram tales and reels for the video variations. However listed here are the highlights from our Mayakoba eating places!
Sotavento @ Andaz
Our first day had good climate, and it was the best evening to eat at Sotavento, which is true on the seashore. They even had a shelf to position your footwear so you would get the true “toes within the sand” expertise.
String lights created a beautiful ambiance, and we lucked out with an oceanfront sales space lined with pillows!
I used to be over-the-moon with this restaurant. It was a dream come true to be sitting exterior, feeling a heat breeze, and having fun with contemporary seafood off an outside grill!
We loved drinks in the course of the sundown:
I had grilled jumbo shrimp with veggies, and Thomas received a complete fish. You possibly can’t get way more contemporary than that!
Saffron @ Banyan Tree
Once I was researching the very best eating places on some journey boards, Saffron stored developing again and again. With a give attention to Thai delicacies, many of the eating is about up on docks overlooking the canals. There was even a tiny island! We received fortunate once more with good climate. I really feel unhealthy for the individuals who had reservations the times after us when it was raining. I’m not fairly positive what they do as a result of I didn’t see a big indoor area.
We had been greeted by a ritual of hand cleaning adopted by a flower for my hair.
I LOVED the Mezcal Negroni I had this evening – the drink particular of the night.
We determined to order the appetizer sampler to share to have the ability to style as many dishes as doable (that’s all the time my purpose in a restaurant and why I’m a fan of sharing / ordering a bunch of begins vs simply getting one entree and calling it an evening!) The sampler included hen satay, noodle wrapped crispy prawn (my favourite!!), grilled salmon salad and spring rolls with a spicy peanut sauce. Every little thing was delish!
For an entree, I had the fried grouper in a candy and bitter sauce. This was truly a break up portion and greater than sufficient! We had been so full. It was great!
Casa Amate @ Andaz
Casa Amate is an award-winning restaurant on the Andaz and was very, very cool. The restaurant is designed to really feel like you’ll somebody’s residence with rooms that really feel like residing rooms, eating rooms, and a library. There was additionally a guitarist transferring all through, and he performed an acoustic model of “Can’t Cease the Feeling” which was so humorous as a result of Birch and I simply watched the Trolls film and I’d been telling him I might convey residence “sunshine in my pocket.”
My sister instructed us to get there early and take a look at the bar, and that ended up being my favourite half!
Thomas ordered the Tinto Romero, and I had the Sotobello. I cherished how inventive all of the drinks throughout Mayakoba had been. Gimme all of the Mezcal and Tequila!
This was some of the scrumptious drinks I’ve ever had! Thomas agreed.
For dinner we had been served a tempura fish amuse bouche plus tableside bread.
We ordered a tamale to start out – a corn tamale with beef, peppers, carrots, capers, Kalamata olives, raisins marinated in rum, wrapped in banana leaves and tomato sauce.
I ordered the Caribbean Soup for dinner which was a coconut soup with shrimp, fish, and scallops. A lot to my nice shock, I used to be introduced a bowl of COCONUT FOAM (!!) that they then poured sizzling broth onto. It was so cool and tasted unimaginable! (I really like all meals + drinks with foams!)
Thomas ordered Crimson snapper with a marinade of dried chili peppers with coriander rice and espelón beans. I feel he ordered fish each evening! He cherished it.
We had been typically too full for dessert, however we needed to get one this evening once we noticed the desk subsequent to us having fun with it. A do-it-yourself cookie topped with espresso ice cream, caramel, and a chocolate sauce that they poured on high on the desk.
La Laguna @ Fairmont
For our remaining evening we dined at La Laguna on the Fairmont. We received there early to stroll round and get a drink earlier than our reservation at 6:30.
Sadly as a result of rain and wind we weren’t capable of eat out on the lagoon docks. I’m positive this could have been as magical as Saffron on a cloudless evening.
Have a look at this infinity pool subsequent door!!
Other than carrying the identical costume once more (it was too chilly for my quick attire!), the primary individual to inform me what’s odd about this image wins!!
Right here’s one other trace 🙂 I promise I hadn’t had any Mezcal once I received dressed!
The within of the restaurant was very very good too, and the menu was all about conventional Mexican delicacies. It was an important spot to finish our journey on.
We sampled a number of the mole sauces on the menu together with blue corn tortillas as a complimentary begin.
We needed to get the tableside guacamole!! (I cherished that I may request no onions too : ) )
We had a taco theme at our desk. I ordered a trio of tacos – snapper, beef, and pork.
And Thomas had the particular tempura shrimp. We traded a pork for a shrimp so I may have one too.
As I discussed above, we had 4 very completely different and really scrumptious Mayakoba restaurant experiences that had us wishing we had extra nights to strive all of them!
Eating places we wished we had tried:
Zapote Bar on the Rosewood
Cielo Rooftop Bar on the Fairmont
The Korean BBQ grill on the Fairmont
Casa Del Lago on the Rosewood (for breakfast)
Cello at Banyan Tree for rustic Italian
Seaside Meals Fest on the Rosewood
La Ceiba on the Rosewood (household fashion)
