Fantino - The Ritz-Carlton Cancun
Resort Elegant- Long pants and shoes recommended for gentlemen.
Fantino is one of our absolute favorite restaurants in the world. I will put it up again many of the Michelin-starred restaurants we have enjoyed in Paris, Bordeaux and Switzerland. A must when visiting Cancun.
A must visit when in town! Wonderful ambiance, creative servings and exquisite service!
Classical fine dining experience with excellent dishes (we had fish that was fresh and perfectly prepared) and service. For an extra special touch, recommend the caviar service. Wine list as with many good restaurants in Mexico could be improved to match the top notch quality of food. That was the only element holding back my first 5-star rating having dined at dozens of 4-4.5 star places.
It was an amazing culinary experience!!
From the moment you walk in, you know it is going to be a special evening. We were warmly greeted and shown to our table. The room is beautifully appointed and overlooks the ocean. Our outstanding waiter, Alvaro, introduced himself then we were immediately served crostini and, with his help, ordered a bottle of wine from a large list of wonderful choices. The evening was not rushed at all. Alvaro went over the menu and gave us his recommendations. He did not steer us wrong. For appetizers we had the zucchini soup, the baby greens salad and my daughter and I split the homemade pasta dish. A bread cart with four different kinds of breads and four different olive oils was brought to the table for our selection. After our appetizers, we were brought a cup of a creamy soup and a very interesting palate cleanser. Sorry I cannot remember what each was called. For entrees we chose sea bass, salmon, lamb chops and the filet. All were wonderfully prepared. The dessert menu looked fabulous but we were too full to order however a cart of bite size confections was brought to the table and, of course, we did not refuse. The piano music throughout dinner was delightful. Our enchanted evening ended with each of us receiving a box containing a chocolate truffle, and the women in our group a red rose. A perfect end to a perfect evening. A great way to celebrate our week in paradise coming to a close. Thank you Alvaro snd thank you Fantino.
Excellent service and food. Romantic, intimate setting.
Most amazing experience ever!
Perfect experience!! The pianist, the food, the service, the ambiance...
Another fantastic restaurant at the Ritz Cancun. Jorge was our server and he was exceptional! Always attentive but not intrusive. He was very kind and took his time to explain the menu and help us with our many questions. He and the rest of the staff were wonderful! The food was out of this world. All the extra surprises from the chef were so beautiful and tasty and very much appreciated. At the end of the evening, they handed you a rose and fresh truffles to take home. Such a nice touch! We would love to return again!
My daughter and I had a wonderful dining experience at Fantino. Everything about the evening was exceptional. I will revisit Cancun and I will be a repeat customer at Fantino. Kudos to the Chefs and staff for a job exceedingly well done!
The best restaurant in Cancun. Service is fantastic!
TODA UNA GRATA EXPERIENCIA, SERVICIO INMEJORABLE...
Our experience dining at Fantino was an unparalleled experience. The food was absolutely exquisite. The service was the best I’ve ever experienced. While the experience is heavily weighted in opulence, the staff made the experience incredibly fun and inviting. The atmosphere and decor was of old world elegance with the added touch of a soulful pianist setting the tone in the background. This moment will imbued on the front of my mind for s long time to come.
Elegant with fantastic food! Old world service at the highest level
This restaurant never disappoints. Amazing food and service. They are so professional and attentive to anything you could want or need.
This was the most amazing dinner my husband and I have ever experienced. The service levels were unmatched and the food was perfection. They had a vocalist with a piano player that was also very good. We eat out a lot and this was by far our best experience. Job well done Ritz team!
3rd time eating at Fantino. Very nice and excellent service. Allow 2 hrs for dining.
Simply one of if not the best dining experiences we have had. We have been fortunate to have many extraordinary dining experiences over the years, but Fantinos was possibly the best of them all. Service was a 15 out of 10 (really out of this world), food was exquisite and the restaurant was beautiful. To top it all, the tasting menu was only $100 and wine pairing could be added for ~$50 more. I can’t say enough great things about Fantinos, really impressed. We will be back
Outstanding service, quiet and romantic
Priced fairly well and food was very good
Heartfelt thanks to Mr. Perez and his amazing Team at Fantino for always making our experience wonderful!
Outstanding service Wala! The chef gift creation tomato soup was delicious, the salmon quite good. My daughter has the tenderloin cooked to perfection with a wonderful sauce. My meal was a total fail. I had the lamb which was extremely tough to get a knife through and the Osco Busco was overdone and crispy. It would have been nice to add some veggies to the plate. Desert was mixed. My daughter has the dessert from the tasting menu and she was overwhelmed with tastes and textures and wasn’t sure they went well together. I had the chocolate lava which wasn’t anything out of the ordinary. We’ll go back as we are here for two weeks but disappointed as we had planned to eat there 4-5 times a week.
Visiting from NYC this is the Best of the Best
Not to be missed
Mr. Perez and his team are always wonderful and provide us with the highest level of service!! Fantino is an incredible experience with service that cannot be outdone.
Service moments were excellent but were somewhat hurried, (staff was extremely busy). Food was wonderful (however, several courses were served without any explanation.) Wine pairings were disappointing, very small portion, definitely not worth the premium. (several pouring went without description.)
What a treat!! Fabulous service. Pampered respectful servers . Lovely atmosphere. The food was delicious. The filet mignon one of the best ever Cocktails were well prepared. Could have done without a couple of not so well behaved children who fortunately were sitting far away
Lovely way to celebrate parents’ 50th Anniversary! Food, service, and ambiance were amazing!
Fantastic dining experience! Food was very good and the atmosphere was perfect. Will definitely go again.
Best meal ever in Cancun.
Went there for my friends 50th celebration - everything was terrific - service was exceptional
The best of the best
Sets the standard
Very immaculate, and well planned out dinner, and the wait staff was outstanding!
An amazing dinner and impeccable service!
Loved everything about. The food was amazing!
One of the most romantic and delicious restaurants in the world. A truly memorable meal in every aspect!
Dined here for a second time during our stay at the RC and were just as pleased as the first. Enjoyed the Caribbean lobster paired with a great Tempranillo that we enjoyed at the previous meal. Service was impeccable.
The service was flawless and the tasting menu was superb! The presentation of the dishes a to the tables was a well executed ballet performed with precision. The Celery soup with shrimp and scallop were savory and well paired with the Pascual Jolivet. The Rossini Filet was tender and the Monteabellon temperanillo were very complimentary. The meal was well paced, good portions, and the dessert was neverending for those with a sweet tooth. We enjoyed it so much that we chose to come back for a second dinner two nights later.
Amazing experience! Thank you!
It was fantastic, one of the best ever - food and service wise - spectacular!
The most attentive service I have ever encountered at a Ritz Carlton property not to mention the flavors the chef has created you could taste the love.
The Salmon dish was so good - the combination of sauce, fish, and the gnocchi along with vegetables was just perfect.
