Our Dinner Stories • Kath Eats


Right here’s a recap of the 4 superb dinner reviews we had at Mayakoba eating places throughout 3 of the hotel houses. Additionally examine our keep on the Andaz Mayakoba right here!

The Mayakoba Eating places

One of the vital best possible portions of the Mayakoba revel in is attending to dine at any of the eating places around the 4 houses throughout the gates. There are over 25 eating reviews unfold around the hotels. Examine them right here! No longer simplest are you able to take a very simple golfing cart from one belongings to the following, however you’ll price the entire foods to your own home hotel room. 

We did make reservations for all 4 of our dinners, as used to be really useful. We attempted to push certainly one of our reservations again via an hour they usually weren’t in a position to take action as it used to be utterly booked, so I believe the reservations are essential. I additionally imagine that you’ll be able to make reservations at your personal hotel (60 days out) and the others (30 days out) and (2 weeks) for the Rosewood, so they offer precedence to the house hotel visitors. We didn’t have any hassle getting the highest spots! 

What I liked about our dinners is they have been all very other and felt very just like a eating revel in. If there may be something I are living for once I commute it’s a meals revel in! We have been additionally very inspired with the meals! All 4 of our dinners have been superb. 

I took such a lot of movies, however I didn’t get sufficient nonetheless footage of every of the eating places, and even the whole thing we ate. Take a look at my Instagram tales and reels for the video variations. However listed below are the highlights from our Mayakoba eating places!

Sotavento @ Andaz

Our first day had easiest climate, and it used to be the best night time to devour at Sotavento, which is true at the seashore. They even had a shelf to position your sneakers so it’s essential to get the real “feet within the sand” revel in. 

String lighting created a ravishing environment, and we lucked out with an oceanfront sales space covered with pillows! 

I used to be over-the-moon with this eating place. It used to be a dream come true to be sitting out of doors, feeling a heat breeze, and playing contemporary seafood off an out of doors grill! 

We loved beverages all over the sundown:

I had grilled jumbo shrimp with veggies, and Thomas were given a complete fish. You’ll’t get a lot more contemporary than that!

Saffron @ Banyan Tree

When I used to be researching the most productive eating places on some commute forums, Saffron saved bobbing up over and over again. With a focal point on Thai delicacies, lots of the eating is about up on docks overlooking the canals. There used to be even a tiny island! We were given fortunate once more with easiest climate. I think dangerous for the individuals who had reservations the times after us when it used to be raining. I’m now not moderately certain what they do as a result of I didn’t see a big indoor area. 

We have been greeted via a ritual of hand cleaning adopted via a flower for my hair. 

I LOVED the Mezcal Negroni I had this night time – the drink particular of the night time. 

We determined to reserve the appetizer sampler to percentage so to style as many dishes as imaginable (this is at all times my purpose in a cafe and why I’m partial to sharing / ordering a number of begins vs simply getting one entree and calling it an evening!) The sampler incorporated rooster satay, noodle wrapped crispy prawn (my favourite!!), grilled salmon salad and spring rolls with a highly spiced peanut sauce. The whole thing used to be delish!

For an entree, I had the fried grouper in a candy and bitter sauce. This used to be in truth a break up portion and greater than sufficient! We have been so complete. It used to be superb! 

Casa Amate @ Andaz

Casa Amate is an award-winning eating place on the Andaz and used to be very, very cool. The eating place is designed to really feel like you will any person’s house with rooms that really feel like dwelling rooms, eating rooms, and a library. There used to be additionally a guitarist shifting all through, and he performed an acoustic model of “Can’t Prevent the Feeling” which used to be so humorous as a result of Birch and I simply watched the Trolls film and I’d been telling him I might convey house “sunshine in my pocket.” 

My sister informed us to get there early and take a look at the bar, and that ended up being my favourite section!

Thomas ordered the Tinto Romero, and I had the Sotobello. I liked how inventive the entire beverages throughout Mayakoba have been. Gimme the entire Mezcal and Tequila! 

This used to be probably the most scrumptious beverages I’ve ever had! Thomas agreed. 

For dinner we have been served a tempura fish amuse bouche plus tableside bread. 

We ordered a tamale to start out – a corn tamale with red meat, peppers, carrots, capers, Kalamata olives, raisins marinated in rum, wrapped in banana leaves and tomato sauce.

I ordered the Caribbean Soup for dinner which used to be a coconut soup with shrimp, fish, and scallops. A lot to my delightful marvel, I used to be introduced a bowl of COCONUT FOAM (!!) that they then poured sizzling broth onto. It used to be so cool and tasted fantastic! (I like all meals + beverages with foams!) 

Thomas ordered Crimson snapper with a marinade of dried chili peppers with coriander rice and espelón beans. I believe he ordered fish each and every night time! He liked it. 

We have been frequently too complete for dessert, however we needed to get one this night time after we noticed the desk subsequent to us playing it. A home made cookie crowned with espresso ice cream, caramel, and a chocolate sauce that they poured on best on the desk. 

Los angeles Laguna @ Fairmont

For our ultimate night time we dined at Los angeles Laguna on the Fairmont. We were given there early to stroll round and get a drink ahead of our reservation at 6:30. 


Sadly because of the rain and wind we weren’t in a position to devour out at the lagoon docks. I’m certain this could had been as magical as Saffron on a cloudless night time. 

Have a look at this infinity pool subsequent door!!

With the exception of dressed in the similar get dressed once more (it used to be too cold for my brief attire!), the primary individual to inform me what’s peculiar about this image wins!!

Right here’s some other trace 🙂 I promise I hadn’t had any Mezcal once I were given dressed!

The interior of the eating place used to be very really nice too, and the menu used to be all about conventional Mexican delicacies. It used to be a great place to finish our go back and forth on. 

We sampled one of the mole sauces at the menu together with blue corn tortillas as a complimentary get started. 

We needed to get the tableside guacamole!! (I liked that I may request no onions too : ) )

So scrumptious!! 

We had a taco theme at our desk. I ordered a trio of tacos – snapper, red meat, and beef. 

And Thomas had the particular tempura shrimp. We traded a beef for a shrimp so I can have one too. 

As I discussed above, we had 4 very other and really scrumptious Mayakoba eating place reviews that had us wishing we had extra nights to take a look at all of them!

Eating places we needed we had attempted:

  • Zapote Bar on the Rosewood
  • Cielo Rooftop Bar on the Fairmont

  • Casa Del Lago on the Rosewood (for breakfast)
