We started our meal with the roasted beet salad. It was delicious. Our entree was the marinated pulled pork which was tasty but at a 10 ounce serving I was glad we decided to split it. For desert we had the aged cheese flan that was just too dry in my opinion to even be called flan. When I think of flan I am thinking of a smooth custard. This was nothing like that and had we known would have passed. There are far better restaurants at the resort to waste time going to Nektar. I do not recommend it
The two greeters were friendly. Waiter was not. Acted as if we didn't belong there.
Our server, Allain was fantastic!
He had great recommendations and did everything he could to ensure we had a perfect night.
Beautiful place, great service but food is not great.
Loved the shrimp in stone shallow bowl!
View and ambiance is spectacular. For me, the food was above average but nothing spectacular with exception to the pulpo appetizer we had which was definitely out of this world. We share a mocajete for main course and it was delicious but nothing out of the ordinary (we live in Southern California) and this was almost identical to any other mocajete I’ve had.
We had dinner here 2 years ago and it’s just as good today as it was then. Very elegant . Food was excellent as well as service and atmosphere. We went with our 4 year old twins and the house was very accommodating to us. We will definitely go back our next time in Riviera Maya
Perhaps the best restaurant at Vidanta |- and that is saying something! Beautiful setting, excellent service,wonderful and interestingly different food. Try it, you’ll like it!
Ambiance is very nice. The music is the bar is awesome very fun group of singers. Food was very average. I had fish tacos and the ones I have in town from a street vender were much better. The other party in our group got the special bowl for 2 it was very salty and not that impressive, and was rather pricey. My advise just get a drink in the lounge and enjoy the music and eat before you go.
Beautiful presentation! Lovely cocktails. Shrimp and chicken was very over cooked.
Unique atmosphere with fantastic traditional Yucatan food. The Cirque du Soleil theatre provides a beautiful backdrop. If you stay late enough, you'll be treated to live music.
All thumbs up, beautiful, excellent service, great recommendations, GREAT athmosphere. Wish we had more days to repeat
We had one of the hot bowls with beef and shrimp. The beef was extremely fatty and hard to chew. The shrimp were tasty. Service was just ok at best.
Loved it and our waiter was phenomenal!! The venue is beautiful and the god was amazing !!
Amazing place environment with great food. This is definitely one of the best restaurants ate in.
Service was excellent and prompt. Drinks from the bar were first class. Great experience.
Nektar is a unique place with great ambience and food The servers are great Juan Carlos and Enrique do a wonderful job
Portions are large , including appetizers... Bowls are fabulous and shared with 2. Band was excellent and wonderful ambience and setting. White wine was mediocre for the price. Service fabulous!!
Service was excellent and the ambience memorable! Was truly an enjoyable evening!
Ambiance and food were amazing. Waiter was pretty hospitable and responsive up until the check, where he became very rude, even though we were trying to tip him via credit card, he hovered around us trying to see what we were doing and almost doubted that we were paying for the food, it was very uncomfortable
Seth did an outstanding job providing great service for a repeat visit to the restaurant!
We dined twice in two weeks. Both times we had the same waiter, Seth. He was a fantastic waiter. Helpful, enthusiastic and gave us excellent customer service. He is wonderful. The food was superior. We enjoyed the Shallow Bowls with Yucatan dinner. Delicious. Loved the outdoor entertainment of the Mayan warriors in boats with fire. Loved the music of the three ladies singing and playing instruments.
Vacation week. It was so fabulous we went twice!!!
Wonderful regional food with a relaxing pace for dining. Lovely descriptions of menu to help assemble an enriched dining experience. Service was gracious, well timed and professional. Would return again in a heartbeat to see our welcoming friends.
Delicious meal! Great service. I recommend the shrimp meal for two. Beautiful setting.
Service was so bad. Our server was busy bussing and setting his tables then even getting us a cocktail. This treatment confused until they got a manager involved. Food was so so and not worth the value. The bar was great and if I went again I would only go there
Incredible, out of this world experience. Every detail was beautiful and delicious. Already planning to go again next year.
All was great except the meal! Gucomole wasn’t as tasty as anywhere else we’ve dined! Our salad was good and fresh however our main dish ... the pot bowl .. chicken and shrimp was terrible quality.. bones and gristle in chicken and shrimp over cooked! The sausage was flavourful however full of bones!
Worst service we have received in a long time. General staff was fine. Waiter was terrible, took forever to place order was absent never came back to check on us. We ran out of water 10 minutes in. Took 40 minutes to get more!!! (Not kidding) asked other wait staff they went and got our waiter then he disappeared and finally came and said surprised "oh they didn't bring you water?" It was very odd.. wine was chilled so cold it had condensation on the glass. Food was good. (Not that it mattered) although it could have have been hotter. It most certainly wasn't brought straight out. I would prob give this place another chance just hope for a better waiter. It took so long to get the bill I didn't feel like arguing or complaining.
We have been here many Times over the last years and it’s always been great. Food and service has always been great.
We had a fabulous authentic Yucatán dinner! We loved our waiter Ernesto who was excellent. He gave us wonderful recommendations and the food was delicious! He was very attentive and went way beyond expectations. At our request he made anther reservation for us for later in the week and he will again be our waiter! We look forward to our upcoming second visit to Nektar!
I cant remember the name of our server But he was outstanding and super nice. I wish i remembered his name because he deserves some credit! he made our dinner 100x times better!
Very interesting and unusual food. Quite tasty. Wonderful fire show on the lake about 8 maybe again at 9:30. Well worth exploring the menu.
Included tip of 8% like everywhere at the resort at an exchange rate less than national. That said usually give additional however the service was poor throughout, waiter was rude, took 30 minutes to start taking our order. La Parrilla Playa Del Carmen about 20 minutes away had a similar menu and was 10 times better with great service. This waiter thought he could be disrespectful, and then when he didn’t get an EXTRA tip, and checked to see what he got before we were done eating, smiles and the poor service completely disappeared such that we had to ask his colleague for assistance to complete our order. I don’t think the food was special enough to be worth this. At the resort Gong, Tramonto, just about everywhere else was way better with great service.
Excelente restaurante! La comida es deliciosa y el ambiente familiar es muy ameno! Estuvimos por allá para celebrar los 15 años de mi sobrino y nos encantó el trato que recibimos! Nuestro camarero Seth, nos hizo sentir como en casa, su amabilidad y recomendaciones con respecto a la comida fueron de lo mejor! Les recomiendo visitar este restaurante cuando estén por Cancún!
Stone pot with shrimp and steak was amazing!
Tasty food and excellent service! What a special birthday celebration overlooking the water!
We have been to Naktar several times and enjoy everything about this restaurant.
My wife and friends loved the "Ik Habanero Drink".
We had the "Yucatan Shrimp Ceviche" and "Wood Oven Roasted Beets" for appetizers. The Ceviche was very tasty and fresh. The beets were very good (if you are a beets fan).
The food is excellent and the " Wood Burning Oven Stone Shallow Bowls" is a great choice for couples who like to share!
I think the best part of the whole experience was our waiter Juan Carlos! We have had the pleasure of his service on 2 occasions and he is always enthusiastic and entertaining! Our friends commented that he was the best waiter they ever had!
The food had variety and tasted fantastic. The staff are very attentive to all your needs and are very efficient. The ambience is wonderful. It is a higher end restaurant but it's totally worth it.
