If you are looking for a great dinner with a world class oceanfront backdrop and view, first class service and great food, man do we have a place for you. This Riviera Maya restaurant has been around for a long time, one that we have frequented for over 15 years. But I have to say the view, the food and the service never gets tired.
This seaside restaurant is located on Maroma Beach at the Kin Sol Soleil Hotel, about halfway between Playa del Carmen and Puerto Morelos. Though it is located within this boutique hotel, it is open to the public. If you are not a guest at the hotel, you only need to make a reservation either online or through our guest services. Drop ins are not possible. They need to know you are coming!
Breakfast is served from 8:00 am to 10:30 am, Lunch from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm and dinner from 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm. Give yourself time to enjoy both the food and the view.
This is not an inexpensive meal by Riviera Maya standards, but it is not an expensive meal by North American Standards. Count on $50 USD per person for your dinner with moderate drinking. For this view, this level of service and the great main dishes, you would be paying three to four times this price outside of Mexico.
Dress is smart casual, wine list is great, and their artisanal beer list impressive.
Their culinary mantra is fresh local foods with European influences. Your will find locally crafted sauces, fresh produce and beautiful presentation. This is not tacos on a plate, it is a place to celebrate culinary diversity. Attention to detail is found in both the service and the cuisine.
The dinner menu has a variety of dishes, including lamb, grouper, chicken, foie gras, and one vegetarian item. Checkout the a sample of the dinner menu here.
And if it is the view you want, this has one of the best on the coast.
Pavo Real By The Sea Restaurant is located on in Kin Sol Soleil Hotel. There are no signs, well there is a one but it is hidden, but there is an iconic restaurant on the highway that is the entrance to the restaurant and hotel property. Turn at the Burger Bar on Hwy 307. There is a little gate where all restaurant patrons need to check in. Your taxi can drive you into the restaurant. If you are a local and have taken on the task of designated driver for the evening, you will be asked to park your car at the gate and a driver will take you into the restaurant. This is a wonderful treat and we love being driven onto the property.
Email Paulina in our Guest Services and she would be happy to make you a reservation at Pavo Real on the Sea. This is truly a wonderful experience that serves paradise on a plate!
