I live in Cancun and I can honesty say that Lorenzillo's is the best food in Cancun. I have a friend that has cooked there for years. You will pay a premium to eat here but the food is worth it. If you want a live lobster you need to go early. Enjoy Your Stay In Cancun Rick Szymanski

We went to Lorenzillos for my birthday dinner. We both ordered the 10oz lobster tail. Our cost was $40 US dollars. Back home it would have been more like $60-$80 for a tail that size at a good quality restaurant. The restaurant itself is on stilts over the water. There are 3 alligators who live under the building. The come... More

The food and service at Lorenzillo's were excellent. Unfortunately, they refused to do separate checks and the bill was unclear. It took an hour to finally settle it for our party of twelve. I would not recommend them for large groups.

Loved the atmosphere overlooking the lagoon, waiter was excellent, food was wonderful. A great night out for a more formal, laid back atmosphere in Cancun. After a long day at the beach or activities and to get away from the hustle and bustle of the hotel and down town, you should go here for a nice dinner. Additionally, it is... More

the place itself is nice and having lunch with a view over the lake was a nice touch. I enjoyed the ceviche and also the soup was good as well. The lobster my fiance had was also good. Overall we had please experience and it was worth going there on our last day in Cancun

This was our 2nd trip to Lorenzillo's and we were just as pleased with our visit this time as we were on our first visit. The restaurant is immaculate and the service impeccable. Our meals were first rate.

We really looked forward to going because of the reviews. We were staying within walking distance and had talked to staff about the lobster tail before booking to go. We sat on the lagoon and it was a nice table and setting. My husband had the table side Caesar salad which he didn't personally like but a lot of other... More

The restaurant that holds taste, flavors, sensations, history, tradition, evolution and modernity all at the same time.

Brilliant details at every turn only add to Lorenzillo's uniqueness. From the entrance one can admire the hand carved wooden pillars that elude to the crustacean that has come to be the favorite of its world-wide customers: the lobster.
