Description: La Habichuela Sunset Surpasses your expectations. Welcome: A unforgettable sunset awaits you. They say its a museum turned into a restaurant. Aside from its bold and modern arquitechture, the ambiance is based on the mayan culture with the intent of giving our customers a unique experience surrounded by masks of ancient kings, a 9 meter mayan column from floor to ceiling and a 30 meter hand carved kukulkan wooden snake. Our open garden area next to the lagoon allows you to dine with the stars and the moon. But our biggest pride being our exquisite dishes, from traditional yucatecan recipes to sophisticated caribbean/mexican fusions. We have a vast variety of international wines as well as national. We follow and maintain our founders philosophy of providing prompt and detailed service since 1977. Dont miss our mayan rituals shows during the week that will transport you in time to the ancient mayan civilization.

The intro bread was tasty. I ordered the coconut jumbo shrimp which were okay, I've had better but they were edible. We wanted to try the dessert as the table next to us was having the dessert prepared right at their table and it looked really tasty but we were so stuffed, our tummys didnt allow room for dessert. Service was good also. Great atmosphere I can say.

Outstanding: the service, the food, the ambience!
Jose was very attentive! The rear patio is beautiful. If you go to Cancun, you must visit it.

We had two outstanding, imaginative meals here. We love traditional Mexican food with creative twists and found plenty of that on the menu, plus excellent margaritas. The ceviche Ixtapa is perfect--we ordered it both nights. We also tried the fish with barbecue sauce, the grouper Veracruz, and the shrimp steak with truffle sauce. All were incredible. The atmosphere is romantic and sophisticated; the service is spotty at times but often attentive. We can't think of a better way to end our stay and we hope this restaurant continues to flourish.

The rear patio is very romantic and the meal choices are. Creative and quite good.
The name means string bean and there signature dish besides the soup is cocoanut shrimp served in a cocoanut.
Not my favorite but most people liked it.
