I lived in California for 15 years and had a Mexican restaurant on every corner. Riviera Maya is as authentic as I have had in the northeast. Their housemade salsa is a little spicy but really good. Generous servings you won't leave hungry. The only thing that was different was there were peas and corn in the burrito supreme but,... More

My wife and I recently enjoyed on of the best Mexican meals we have ever had. This is truly authentic Mexican family style cuisine! I couldn't choose between the chile relleno or the barbecoa until the waiter offered to put the barbecoa in the relleno! Genius! This is a great example of the service we were given! From start to...

We've been here a half dozen times or more and we've never been disappointed. Excellent food. Great Service. Good Mariachi band when they have it.

When we arrived, we had to wait for awhile since they did not take reservations and we were a group of 8. Staff was very accommodating while we waited in the lobby area giving us chips to go along with our drinks. Once we were seated, the service was quite efficient. I think everyone enjoyed their meals but I must... More

This place has great festive décor and a large menu. The combination platters are usually what I get. If you like guacamole, it is very fresh.

Located right on route 206, a very nice place to stop for typical Mexican dishes, though I didn't find the food authentic-tasting, it was good and prices were reasonable. Service a bit slow to start; full bar also. The chips and salsa were good, nice spicy on the salsa, not too much.

Great Mexican restaurant for lunch or dinner. Large dining room with separate bar area, great drinks with chips and delicious fresh spicy salsa dip. The service is fast and courteous. Enchiladas are my favorite with beans and salsa. Generous portions, good drinks at bar. We visit this restaurant frequently with the 5th of May as a favorite afternoon, come early... More

Have dined here a number of times though it had been a while since our visit last night. Not quite as strong as it once was, IMO. Not sure but it was somehow a bit "off" in the food. Our meals were perfectly fine but did not have quite the flavor and appeal of previous visits. That said, this place... More
