“Roman is the man!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

This place is a great place to enjoy authentic mexican cuisine while on the luxury resort.
Roman Campos was the manager that night, he was well versed in the menu, but said he rotated managing different places around the resort.
We asked him for some quick recommendations, and we werent dissapointed. First we had the guacamole to start. He came right to the table with his chefs block, and prepared it by hand infront of us, making sure everything was to our liking, adding fresh vegetables, and extra lime like we asked. Next he delivered us a great little tasting of four different appetizers. My fiance and I both took his recommendation on the chicken with Mole sauce, and then had the best churros I have ever had, served with creamy hot chocolate, and chocolate and caramel dipping sauce. Roman constantly made sure we were happy with his recommendations, and always made sure our glasses were full and empty dishes were removed immediately. Our experienced was significantly enhanced by having Roman by our side. If you plan to eat at this establishment, ASK FOR ROMAN!

“A Very Memorable Dinner”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

It was our last night at the Grand Luxxe. Our family was on vacation from all parts of the U.S. to celebrate four family members' birthdays. The superb staff made our dining experience one we won't soon forget. They were very attentive, gracious, and congenial. They had several surprises to help celebrate our birthdays. My dinner of pork with cactus paddle and fried plantains over rice was authentic and spicy. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very classy, with billowing curtains and piano music. Many thanks to the staff of Epazote! It was fantastic!

“Elegant and Delicious Dinning”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We had the pleasure of dinning at Epazote in April 2014 and the reviews that I had read were right on the mark. This restaurant was wonderful. I took the suggestions of the reviews and had the Black Bean Soup and the Sea Bass...BOTH WERE MARVELOUS. My husband had the Short Ribs which had a most ample serving and was also DELICIOUS. Dress was more upscale, but shorts for men was allowed as long as a shirt with a color was worn. Service impeccable, atmosphere delightful. You may dine in or out, but the evening we were there a bit of a breeze made us eat inside. So if you are going to the Grand Mayan and enjoy eating fabulous food, great atmosphere and superb service this is a MUST restaurant.
