This is, hands down, the most romantic, delicious fine dining restaurant in Cancun. I’ve tried all of the others and I keep coming back here. I’ve been vacationing in Cancun for the last 28 years and this is the only restaurant that has stood the...test of time. Solely due to the outstanding service that you’ll receive, consistently the very best variety of seafood and steaks prepared magnificently by their chef. We were taken care of tonight by Alberto and Jesus. Alberto made us the most delicious Caesar Salad at our table. I’ve never had a better Caesar anywhere in the world. We ordered our favorite meal, the Bruja Del Mar, which is a beef filet stuffed with lobster and shrimp topped with their special béarnaise, a loaded baked potato and grilled vegetables. We finished off our meal with mouthwatering decaf Cappuccino. If you’ve been to Cancun and have never dined here, you have really been missing out. Take my advise and make a reservation here for that special night while on vacation.More

We had a group of 6 and we all agreed, we had some good dishes like the table side cesar salad, the lobster bisque was excellent, and the french onion soup was actually the best I have EVERY eaten! However the stone crabs were really...not very tasty. As one member on our group described them, they tasted 'stringy'. We avoided the lobster (which in fairness they are known for) but the market price was just exorbitant. The wine list was very thin, I have been coming to Cancun for more than 10 years and had avoided this place due to the pricey menu but we decided to give it a try. Stick to soup and salad here and avoid that pricey seafood, it just isnt worth it.More

Went to Lorenzillos for dinner as a recommendation by my partners parent's, whi visited about 20 years ago. We were blown away by how lovely the staff were (particularly Manuel Lopez) and how delicious the food was. We had an amazing experienced topped off by...a beautiful sunset with a visit from an alligator swimming in the lagoon! Don't worry, he can't get into the restaurant! We can't wait to come back when we visit again!More

We were so excited to visit this place, I LOVE LOBSTER!!! Our first impression was good, we were greeted with a smile by everyone, the waiters were very polite all the way through, when I ordered my lobster the waiter showed me the price which...was 1690 pesos (about $85) for a lobster tail. I knew it was a lot but accepted and had high expectations. I asked the waiter how I should have it cooked as I like it as soft as possible, he recommended broiled, so I took his advice, it was tough, it had the texture as if it had been frozen rather then fresh, I really hope it wasn’t for the price I paid. My wife had the mixed paella which was lacking flavour (we do go to Spain a lot so maybe we shouldn’t have had high expectations, the kids had pasta and chicken nuggets of the kids menu which were both fine. For dessert we shared a slice of cheese cake and a portion of ice cream, the cheesecake was less then average. We ordered 4 drinks 1 per person. The total bill came to $228 with service which is fine if the food was a high standard but unfortunately we were left very disappointed. When getting my car from the valet I gave the guy a tip of 50 pesos and he didn’t even say thank you (maybe this is a tight tip?) overall the food was definitely below average, the service was good and friendly, the valet was rude. I find it hard giving a 2* review but this is warranted.More

This restaurant was overpriced and not worth the trip there. I would not recommend this place to friends since there are better restaurants around this price point.

We have dined at Lorenzillo's 4x now since 2017 - every time we visit Mexico, we make a trip to eat there. Our first 2 trips was on our honeymoon in 2017, then we brought our friends in 2018 and now we brought our parents...in 2022. Everyone loved the dining experience! Go earlier than your reservation time so that you have time to walk the grounds and take pictures outside at the lagoon. Each time we visited, we saw the crocodile (this year 2 of them!) as they swim around the restaurant. It was breathtaking watching these animals eerily and stealthily move through the water and beneath us as we stood on the boardwalk. Lorenzillo's is a fine dining experience. From the moment we stepped out of our private car service or taxi, we were greeted and assisted by staff members outside. They helped unload the car and bring my stroller down the short flight of stairs leading to the restaurant. The staff also stored my stroller and baby's car seat privately in the restaurant while we dined so we had ample space around us and did not take up space. That being said, the fine dining experience comes with fine dining prices - still worth it in my opinion for that one treat during your vacation stay in Mexico! Our family took a 1 hour taxi ride to the restaurant just because we love it so much! For any Canadian guests, think of it as a high class and fancier version of the restaurant, Snug Harbour in Port Credit. The restaurant itself has a beautiful ambience to it - dark wood, boat-like feel and nautical. While it looks old, it is actually well maintained and the old feel is polished wood which makes you feel warm and cozy. The service staff are attentive and you truly feel the fine dining experience: replacing all cutlery and flatware after each course, cleaning the table of breadcrumbs, refilling your water glass, and anticipating your needs. The food is amazing. We ordered the shrimp cocktail which were very large shrimp and more than enough for a group of 5. The tableside Caesar salad is divine - the dressing made before your eyes is so creamy and delicious. We handpicked our own lobsters right from the display boat at the front of the restaurant. This was a fun photo experience too! The lobster was broiled with garlic butter and served split with the tail meat easily removed. The linguine accompaniment is delicious but the two carrot and cream of spinach purees are underwhelming. My father-in-law is allergic to shellfish and does not eat fish - he ordered the steak and baked potato and this did not disappoint - it was delicious! The lava cake for dessert is phenomenal. The handwashing plate is also a fun treat that our child enjoyed. If you happen to meet Domenico - the manager/supervisor, say hello and ask him to show you around! He is the absolute best part of the restaurant and the reason we returned 4x! Unfortunately, we did not see him this time around and we truly missed him. On our other 3 visits, he took us around the restaurant to show us the grounds, the lagoon, teach us about the crocodile (Lorenzo) and this is how we fell in love with the restaurant. He was our first experience at the restaurant and that initial interaction is what sparked our love for this place. He even gave us branded Lorenzillo's shot glasses to celebrate our honeymoon in 2017 which we still have and we still use to this day! Domenico - if you are reading this, we missed you and we can't wait to see you again soon! We hope you never leave Lorenzillo's! No one can replace you! From Chris & NicoleMore
