CANCUN RESTAURANTS

 

From continental dining, to fresh seafood and shellfish, to traditional Mayan cuisine, Cancún offers a truly dazzling assortment of dining options. There are over 200 restaurants; settings range from fast-food to casual bistros, to elegant theme restaurants.
Overall, dining in town tends to be less expensive than dining in the resort zone. Many hotels have excellent restaurants and offer cuisine of enormous variety. Note that a recent wave of competition (hotel restaurants competing with non-hotel eateries) has brought down dining prices. Fast food outlets are plentiful.
Do not miss trying some delicious local Mayan dishes, such as Huevos Moltulenos, Cochinita or Pollo Pibil, and Sopa de Lima. A fun way to start your evening is to "hotel hop," taking in several excellent happy hours, a variety of live music, and some incredibly beautiful settings.

Tips:
Mexicans consider it the height of rudeness to bring the check before it is requested. So, when you are ready, ask for your bill by saying, "La cuenta, por favor." The average tip in the hotel restaurants and bars is 15% if the service was good. Always check the bill to be sure the tip ("propina") is not included in the check. Since it is difficult to exchange U.S. coins to pesos, use only bills (U.S. or pesos) or Mexican coins when tipping.

Is it Safe to eat and drink?
The restaurants located in the tourist areas serve food on the same guidelines as the FDA regulations in the USA. They use purified water to make ice and drinks.
