Agave Azul - Rosewood Mayakoba
Agave Atul is absolutely one of the best places in Mayakoba. Alejandro(sp) is a fantastic waiter. The menus is small but superb. Highly recommend going here.
With $16+ cocktails and $25 sushi rolls expect to be underwhelmed here and frustrated that Mayakoba has once again gouged your pocketbook because they know that you are captive on their resort properties. Despite the resorts here massively over-inflating and secretly surcharging taxi fees for guests attempting to flee the resorts for higher quality and reasonably priced food, it is better to pay the almost $40 taxi fare to Playa as there are much better restaurants there at more reasonable price points - try Oh LaLa, Yum Yum by George, or Plank for a higher end dining experience and you will not be disappointed. On the 20 minute ride into town, make your cab driver squirm by trying to get him/her to tell you how much your resort is force adding to the normal price of taxi fare. Uber and Lyft are also locked out from the Mayakoba area as are apps such as Cabify who attempt to provide local fare prices. Not fun! Skip this place and these resorts if it is not too late.
This is definitely a place to be seen in Mayakoba-very trendy. But I thought the food and service was just ok, nothing spectacular. In particular, our waiter seemed bored. Be warned, too, that this is very expensive. $175 USD for a dinner for two. Ouch!
Beautiful setting. Great ambience and delicious food. A true paradise.
Fabulous service delicious food! Best atmosphere
This was the best meal I’ve ever had. The watermelon margarita was delicious. The sushi was expensive but melt in your mouth. We will return, perhaps next week!
Our waiter Oscar was fantastic recommended a great Mexican Pinot noir and knew menu thouroughly. Sat on patio overlooking lagoon ambiance was spectacular.
It was excellent and perfect experience!!! We enjoy every minute. Food was great and service level was amazing!!! Price is on higher level but it’s based on restaurant quality of food and presentation. We ordered house rolls and teriyaki chicken. Everything taste very very good. Oscar who served our dinner was just helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you for unbelievable excellent evening!!!!
maravillosa, un ambiente muy romántico, luz tenue, el mejor sushi, la atención excelente
Food was outstanding. The chicke terriaki was phenomenal and the sushi was the best I’ve ever had. Highly recommend.
The food was delicious, and the setting on the veranda was beautiful. One thing that really stood out was the service, Alejandro was possibly one of the best waiters I’ve had in my life anywhere in the world, a huge credit to the restaurant! Although a little pricey, the experience was worth it!
Pues es un restaurante bueno, pero nada extraordinario
birthday dinner. was excellent!!
Went twice while staying at the resort and both times the food was superb. Service and ambience are also great
The variety of dishes is great and the taste of each meal is superb. The quality of food is extremely fresh. We've come all the way from Australia and it definitely didn't disappoint. Can't wait to go back
Unforgettable night. Everything was amazing. Thank you!
Too many bugs
My favorite restaurant in Mayakoba. Excellent food,service ambiance.
So delicious and a gorgeous setting. I was having trouble with deciding on my entree (as I’ve does with big decisions :)) so the waiter surprised me with a small portion of the dish I didn’t choose. The service can not be beat.
We enjoyed a very nice meal (although very pricey) at Agave Azul during our recent stay in Mayakoba. Our waiter was fantastic and gladly shared a drink recipe with us when I asked. Agree with reviews on the pricing. Sushi rolls are $25+. Living in NY, I'm not easily shocked by prices, but that was really outrageous. The curry was marked mild however it was incredibly spicy. Very tasty but almost inedible. Despite some open tables, we were seated near the hostess station. I imagine this was because we were not guests of the Rosewood but from one of the other Mayakoba resorts.
This is a beautiful restaurant with nice views, however we were disappointed in the food overall. Though they have a large selection of tequilas, the best thing on the menu is the sushi by far. We had two rolls, which were amazing! One with salmon, the other with yellowtail. After this, we ordered the Pad Thai and Masaman Curry. Both were fairly tasteless and uninspired. Overall too expensive and disappointing.
Excellent restaurant, very expensive.
Great seafood and sushi rolls served on a deck overlooking the water. Illuminated menus make reading in the dark easy and help to maintain a romantic ambience. Enjoyed the rock shrimp and octopus salad.
Nice place, very upscale. Food is underwhelming considering how much you pay for it. Ingredients are good quality but flavors are just OK, not mind blowing. Sushi rice was under seasoned and rice texture was weird. Ramen broth was good but they give you very little for the price. On the other hand, rolls are big but short on flavor.
Wait staff was very attentive
but it took too long for the food to arrive, and the restaurant was not even half full. They forgot one dish and delivered it much later when we were almost done eating. Grossly overpriced. Will not come back. We expected more from Rosewood. If you are in Mayakoba, go to El Puerto instead. Still pricey but worth it.
The food was outstanding - I am allergic to fish and was concerned that I would have limited options. The teriyaki chicken was the best I have ever had. The service was great as was the atmosphere. Can't say enough good stuff!
Excelente concepto, acorde al resort Mayakoba
El postre excepcional, un chesscake en forma de aguacate, muy original y rico.
Service was outstanding at this 3 month old property/restaurant. Lovely space and private rooms. The staff was there to meet your every need.
We booked well over a month before visiting the area and I am so glad we did. From the moment we sat down the service was excellent. They couldn't do enough for you and both owners came over to visit our table to make sure everything was to our liking. We got delicious tastings compliments of the chef. They were extremely accomodating to my daughter's Celiac Disease. They even brought her out a complimentary dessert. The food was out of this world only using the freshest ingredients!!!
Fabulous meal! The sushi is so fresh and the rolls are deliciously flavored! Our server was fantastic and we loved everything we ordered!
Good food but very expensive. No need for $25 for a spicy tuna roll.
Beautiful Rosewood Mayakoba. Love the hotel and Agave Azul. Only reason not a 5 is lack of sushi assortment. If you go there 2 or three times on a weeks vacation need a bit more variety on the menu.
We are guests of the hotel
Food was outstanding
Server was outstanding
Once again, another wonderful dining experience. Thank you Chef!
We enjoyed our dining experience at Agave Azul so much a couple of nights ago that we are returning again for dinner tonight. The food offerings are fresh and exciting, the service is outstanding, and the ambience and overall vibe are very compelling. We highly recommend Agave Azul, whether you are staying in Mayakoba, or visiting from the Playa Del Carmen area.
Stunning restaurant with phenomenal staff and great food!
Highly recommend! Sit at the sushi bar for extra special attention from the chef!
We stayed in playa deal Carmen but made the taxi over to the Mayakoba Rosewood. So glad we did. It was an oasis! The sushi was fantastic although I cannot remember the exact rolls we tried. We also enjoyed the wine and tequila selection! The view was amazing even though we sat inside. The patio overlooks the lagoon and at night it was lit up beautifully. It was a great ending to our weekend in Mexico!
Amazing!!! One of the most special restaurants I've been too
