On the property of the Royal in Cancun is a lovely dinner house Maria Marie's. This fabulous restaurant was a part of our all inclusive package at the Royal. The service impeccable, the ambiance cozy and romantic and the food flavorful and exotic. It was hard to believe that this was a part of our all inclusive package. We were given the best seat in the house--a beautiful view of the sun setting over the lagoon.

We did however, "tipped up" our waiter, Juan. He had fine dinner house manners and knew how to present and serve the meal. He was neither pompous nor overly-friendly. We knew tips were already calculated into the all inclusive rate but this situation was above and beyond what was expected; we compensated him to match what was a superior level of service.

Favorite Dish: The food was absolutely wonderful. Paul had the Salmon filet which was accented with nopales (cactus) and I had started with the 3 onion soup and then I had the pork filet with paprika potatoes. The portions were small, well prepared and presented beautifully on the plate; a veritable work of art. Juan, our waiter chose dessert and after dinner liqueurs for us. Paul had the Grand Marnier and a decadent chocolate cake and I had the cheesecake with Mexican version of Sambucca (anisette type liqueur). All in all a memorable meal and one not soon forgotten.

So remember, the next time you are in Cancun give Maria Marie's at the Royal in Cancun a try.I dare say you won't be disapointed.
