Have visited for the last three years. Very nice place to celebrate an occasion (or any other time). Nice open air dinning. I feel the meals lean more to the "high brow" and are very nice.

Tuna was the fresh fish for the week and it was fantastically prepared. Mine was with pepitas and my husband had the Zuma, with a spicier sauce. The salad with pears and grapefruit was very fresh and tasty. The service is very friendly and efficient but not pushy. The setting is so tranquil in a garden/courtyard filled with huge trees...

Service, ambience and food were all excellent. We started out with an order of lion fish cakes, shared, then Catch of the day was tuna and we ordered it in the Zuma style. It was barely seared and oh so tasty. We ordered churros for dessert with a double espresso and Baileys. The perfect finish to the evening.

We read reviews and chose Kondesa (also spoke with the person at our hotel who recommended it) The restaurant opens up as soon as you walk in and there is a large tree covered courtyard for dining. The food was quite good - my wife and I both had the fresh grouper fixed two different ways. We also had very... More

Excellent food selections, beautifully presented, at a reasonable price. The courtyard was beautiful and our server attentive. We enjoyed the jicama tacos and the taquitos, the grilled brie appetizer, their salads, and more. Easy parking as well.

We thank TripAdvisor reviewers for out visit to Kondesa. It was excellent! We enjoyed octopus tostadas, red snapper enchiladas and some of the best churros we've ever tasted for desert. Out server, Rene', gave us attentive, friendly service throughout.

Good predictable food and we try and make it at least every trip to the island. Always refer to friends and it's hasn't let us down. There's better on island but ambience of the outside seating makes this place special. Easy parking too.

Kondesa did a good job with our large group dinner (23 people). Restaurant was prepared for us, staff was attentive. Food is very good - try the Lion Fish cakes for an appetizer. The kitchen had to prepare and plate the dinners in two groups because of our size. But food was hot and fresh.
