We visited last week, after we saw the menu we just ordered drinks. The menu only had around 7-10 choices for dinner, and most of it was fish, and very high priced. I'm sure the food would have been good, but we could not justify getting a meal for $25 dollars a person, that we weren't dying to try.

Hi!! We sorry to hear that is a shame that you didn't try our food cause if you did you will said that is cheap..!!! Well the menu is short for many reason one is that we prefer a hole menu that be fresh, we try to sale just good food... Any good restaurant in the world have small menus for the same reason.... We served more fish than other stuff for obviously reason is the best product in an island...but we have options without fish, chicken breast our rib eye...we think that the price is just fair for what you got here...we sorry for not reach your expectations and hope someday you come back and try our food..best regards sebastian and Agostina Maria's kankin chef and manager

My wife (we were there on our honeymoon) and I just got back after 8 days in Isla Mujeres and our evening at Maria's Kan-Kin for dinner was definitely the highlight our of restaurant experience. Before our trip I was able to get the e-mail address for Sabestian and coordinate a beach-side dinner for us. He was very responsive and even tried to help answer some additional questions I had about the island. We stopped by a day or two before to check it out and knew that we had made a good selection for our big romantic dinner.

When we got there for dinner, they had a table set up on the beach with candlelight. The food was fabulous! Everything from the calamari and guacamole topped with shrimp tostadas for appetizer to the hog fish and red snapper for dinner were fabulous! Sebestian also prepared us a special dessert that was out of this world. His now fiance (congrats), Agostina, is in charge of the service and even prepared a special drink for me after I was asking if they could make it. She was very nice to chat with during our meal too! They also announced that the re-signed a contract with the hotel (which is currently for sale) for another year!

PLEASE go visit this restaurant while you are on the island, if you don't go then you are seriously missing out. It is near Punta Sur and I believe they stop their dinner service around 7pm or 8pm, but this is well worth your trip and the views are amazing! Stay away from the centro and go explore the island, you may just find this hidden gem.

Thanks for a great night!

If you are going out to punta sur, make a stop at Maria's Kan-Kin for a meal. The young couple running the restaurant do an outstanding job. Our meal was fantastic - especially the ceviche. You also get beautiful views out over the water.

This restaurant/people are great. Different plates then in the other places and still typical/special.
We were here alone but it didn't felt like this with the nice music on the background.

If there's something that could be better are the opening hours in the evening. It is allready closed at 8PM wich is to fast when you're dining i think.

Sebastian wow. My parents, wife and two kids enjoyed your tremendous food. Your wife was a gracious host. We highly recommend this restaurant. If you are staying at the north end it's WORTH the taxi or golf cart ride. If your staying at the south end you are blessed. Every meal was perfect. Punta Sur's best restaurant. Best meal on the island.
