There are 10 exquisite restaurants at Excellence Riviera Cancun, taking you on a memorable culinary journey around the globe.

We love The Lobster House, where you can dine on fresh-caught lobster dishes on an outside patio with panoramic views of the ocean, as well as Spice, an Asian restaurant that features Teppanyaki tables and hand-rolled sushi. Get the whole wedding group together for a delicious dinner at Agave (we recommend sitting in the Hacienda-inspired courtyard where you can watch a mariachi band perform!) or Oregano, serving Italian seaside fare. For a romantic dinner, the wedding couple will love the intimate atmosphere and fine-dining French cuisine at Chez Isabelle.

Martini, located in the lobby of the resort, serves classic and creative takes on the martini, while X-Lounge is right on the beach and offers live music and stunning ocean views.
