“Beautiful location”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

My family ate here twice last week; once for dinner and once for breakfast.

The food was pretty good but the view of the water was amazing. Our waiter was very friendly and despite it being busy, it was very peaceful.

Also, since it's in the Omni, the wifi is free. We have wifi in out condo but when you are out and about its nice to have a trusted signal.

Reviewed 12 March 2014

Great fun to do, we swam in one near to Coba. Theres always a fee to be paid...maybe natural but still commercialised.

“Seaside enchantment of savory cuisine”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

Perched above the Omni resort's beach with a perfect view of the bay, always a pleasant breeze this is a gem with a mix of international and Mexican cuisine. We had breakfast and dinner here more than once - meals were tasty, well prepared and plentiful. Service is outstanding with a friendly, attentive wait staff. Also, they were extremely accommodating to switch out preferences from the menu and also to hunt down and find some flan for my wife (one of her favorite desserts). Atmosphere is very romantic out on the veranda seating where in the morning you can watch the sun rise and the resort come to life while at night you have low candle light to create an intimate setting. There is also seating indoors. Note hat it is a bit pricey, but you get a lot for what you pay. Highly recommended.

“A great spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

We stayed at the Omni in PA for winter break 2013-14 and had breakfast and dinner at El Xenote many times. The breakfast is outstanding and the view is beautiful. They have very fresh fruit, freshly made grapefruit and orange juice and excellent egg dishes. There is indoor and outdoor seating which is nice because a few mornings and evenings there was rain and wind so going indoors was great. On New Years Day, many of the restaurants in town were closed so we had dinner here and it was very good. Great soups, salads, steaks, something called a Mexican Plate and also a Mexican sampler were also very good. I had some beef medallions in a peppercorn sauce that was very good. The high-ceilings and the design of the indoor dining area are beautiful. Eddier and Jorge were our servers many times and they took very good care of us. A great place whether you stay at the Omni or not.
