 Is There a Sixth Diamond?
This Ritz Carlton Cancun restaurant is outstanding. After dining solo for the evening, I have come to the conclusion that this dining experience is world class. Everything from the attentiveness of the staff to the artistic and gastronomic skill of its chef sets this restaurant apart from all others. It's no wonder that AAA gave the nod in awarding it all five diamonds. Even the hand painted fresco on the ceiling is evidence of its thoughtful approach to providing diners with a wonderful experience.

 Fabulous Italian restaurant at the Ritz Carlton
We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights and enjoyed this restaurant 3 times. Great food, extensive choices, attentive service in a comfortable dinning room with views of the Caribbean. What's not to like?

 First 5 star review
I have never had such service at a restaurant. The service is French as well as timed perfectly. We ordered from the menu and were not disappointed. Yes expensive but well worth every penny.

Absolutely amazing meal and service (Ernesto and the serving team were out of this world). The fabulous Ritz-Carlton team did not miss a beat or detail!Although it was costly and a two and a half hour meal, it is definitely worth treating your family too!

We dined with our 2 children. They had a small steak entry for my daughter which she loved. I had the filet mignon which was off the charts. The decor is magical and food was delicious. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

 One of our best meals, and hands down the best service, we have ever received!
We came to Fantino for Valentines day dinner, and we were absolutely blown away by both the food and the service. Staff: all impeccably groomed and mannered, and very courteous, attentive and obliging. Restaurant: Decorated for Valentines day, with a great live pianist playing, making the occasion feel special. Clean and elegant.Food: We chose the 5 course tasting menu and everything from the bread service to the last bite was delicious and perfectly prepared and presented. The wine list had plenty to choose from and we got a great red (Bogle). The courses were generous in portion size too! No small plates of 1 or 2 bites only. The chef kept sending out delicious little extras. It was just fantastic.Service/cost: Most amazingly was that for the best service and one of the best meals we have ever had, the price was quite reasonable. Still more expensive than an average restaurant, but for that level of service and food quality, we would have paid at least 3x more here in Vancouver, and not gotten half the experience. we paid CAD around 285 for the two of us, including the wine and very extensive tasting menu, including a tip - so for fine dining, very reasonable. Overall, couldn't have been more impressed from start to finish, literally not one thing I could think of they could improve upon. Just excellent all around. A must do!

 Fine dining at it best
We usually avoid hotel restaurants but this one is an exception. The Ritz in Cancun isOne of our favorites. Better for adults and grown ups.Second time visiting Fantino. The service is a step above in an area ( Cancun ) whereHotels service is traditionally excellent at all 5 star resorts. Our server guide us well.I follow his suggestions and ...what an experience! Excellent fine dining , consistency and value.Gracias a todos los que nos recibieron.

 A trip to Europe thru dinner
Fantino is like hopping to the Mediterranean on your private jet for Dinner. My wife and I enjoyed the Chef's tasting menu and it was simply superb. The staff was attentive without intruding and incredibly nice. But the star of the show was the 9 course meal..Chef's tasting was 6 courses and the Chef added 3 free. Each bit was different and delicious. Even items my wife doesnt usually enjoy were gladly eaten. Prepare for a wonderful experience over a couple of hours. My only thought and suggestion is that they expand their wine list. its a good wine list but possibly a little limited.

 Don't Miss this One!
Amazing service and the best food we had while visiting Cancun. Located in the Ritz Carlton, you'd expect the best and that's what you get, except the price is incredibly low compared to what one would expect. Wear closed toed shoes and a long sleeved shirt as the AC is cool and there is a shoe "rule." Top notch setting, no complaints at all, worthy of its STARS.

 Wonderful, elegant dinner
Our dinner at Fantino at The Ritz was a very elegant, leisurely affair. It is designed to be a lengthy dinner, so don't go if you are in a hurry. They presented us with 3 different amuse bouches - all delicious as well as fresh bread and three kinds of olive oil. Portions are small, but certainly sufficient. Prices are on the high side (it is The Ritz, after all), but not unreasonably so. It was $110US, including tip, for two of us - two glasses of wine, but I had two hot appetizers instead of an entre.

 vegetarian friendly; delicious
My favorite part of dining here was all of the things I didn't order. We started with a little amuse-bouche. It was a foie gras soup, which I understand was delicious, but I had told the staff that I'm vegetarian, so I got what was probably an equally good tomato soup. At the end of the meal, we received a lagniappe small plate of bites of dessert. And each lady at the table received a red rose.The portions were reasonably sized, by which I mean that if you're looking for a half chicken or a 20 oz steak, this probably isn't the place for you. But no one left hungry. Most of the 10 people at our table had the filet mignon, and gave it universally good marks. I had ravioli, also delicous. Our table split a couple of desserts. I think the chocolate cake was the winner.

 Elegant & classy restaurant
We dined at Fantinos in the Ritz Carlton in Cancun on a Saturday evening in mid January. Reservations were required - and were likely necessary for our group of six people since there was only one table of that size that we saw - but it seemed like tables for two or four people were generally available. Smart casual attire was suggested (long pants, collar long sleeve shirt, closed toe shoes) but we saw several people in the restaurant with shorts and short sleeves so it was not a problem either way.The ambiance was nice, and there was a piano player for the entire evening which was a nice touch. The menu was somewhat limited to mostly fish & beef, but there was a decent selection nevertheless. There were 2 options - a la carte or a 6 course tasting menu. The tasting menu was pitched as a 2.5 hour experience - which we did not choose - but ultimately put a la carte selection ran for a 3 hour dinner (excluding dessert which we did not have), so be prepared for this not being a quick meal... and we were certainly not rushed at all either. The additional nice aspect to the a la carte dinner was that it included several complimentary samples of the chefs recommendations - which were all very good - particularly the asparagus soup (which I do not recall being on the menu or else I would have ordered it after the chef sample). The restaurant was classy and was great for a fine dining experience in the hotel with no time constraints. It is the nicest restaurant in the Ritz and I would recommend it for couples / adults, but perhaps only for well-behaved children who can sit through a long meal (not sure about a kids menu either though).

 5 Star Dinner at 4 Star Prices
It was a true dining experience. We were waited on hand and foot. Between our courses the chef sent out several items for us to taste. His zucchini soup was fabulous. The recognized us and called us by name when we returned for a 2nd visit. In Ritz hotel. Live classical pianist.

Fantino left me desiring very very little! The service was perfection! The food was perfection! Felt completely pampered! Great wine selection! I felt I couldn't go wrong with the Foi Gras, Filet and Tiramisu and Fantino topped all that off with a birthday Chocolate treat... nothing fell short of perfection!

 A Totally Amazing Experience
if you are looking for an amazing experience, this is the restaurant to visit. We visited this restaurant while on vacation and it will be one of the best memories of this trip. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated in soft color. The food was delicious and artfully presented! The attention to each and every detail by the staff is meticulous and we felt as if we were the only people in the room. The service is white glove service. We felt like this is what fine dining must have been like in the 1940's. Top this off with wonderful music played on a grand piano and you have an experience that is a treat for each and every sense! While not inexpensive, you are pampered from the moment you enter until the moment you leave. It is fine dining personified!!

 Best of the Best
We were guests at the Ritz Carlton where this restaurant is housed. Could not get a reservation here until midway into our stay. This not dinner, rather a dining experience. Service at this restaurant is IMPECCABLE. There are a couple of intermezzos included, so don't over order. The executive chef of Ritz Carlton was on premises. We watched as he "graded" every dish. Very little room for scrutiny here.Would suggest wine pairing menu, though we just ordered cocktails. Surprisingly less expensive but MUCH better food quality than the other fine dining establishment in the hotel, The Club Grill.

There was a piano player for our entire meal and the restaurant was almost empty, there were only two more couples. The service was of course attentive and what would be expected of a 5 Star restaurant. It was reasonably priced for the experience.

The highly trained staff at this restaurant demonstrated the famous Ritz customer service from start to finish. The waiter was friendly without being overbearing. Our dishes were cleared as soon as we were done with each course. But the food was the star of the evening. Each course was better than the last, with perfect portion sizes. We did not want the meal to end. Every lady left with a rose and a box with a chocolate. Perfection.

The mushroom risotto with truffle and fontina cheese is out of this world, had it both times and am still longing to eat it everyday. Every course was better than the next. The dining room is beautiful and romantic The hostess and servers are so perfectly trained, kind and full of insight to help make your evening everything you want it to be. We hope to return next time we are in Mexico

 Great dining for special occasions
This restaurant has great atmosphere, with soft piano music, excellent service and a good selection of food with wine parings if you desire. The wine selection is good but a little expensive. A great place to celebrate a special occasion.

 First Class Dining Experience
We didn't know what to expect when we walked in the door without a reservation but we were so happy we did. They let you choose from 3 different types of bread and your choice of different olive oils. All were very delicious. The amuse was great and the food that followed was also perfection. We opted for the foie gras appetizer, salmon and my husband got the lamb. I don't know how we saved room for the tiramisu but we did.I highly recommend this restaurant if you're in Cancun.

 Excellent!!!!!!!!!!!
The menu is quite unique, you can build your own pasta dish the way you choose, they have several different sauces and ingredients that you can choose from, also several different kinds of pasta you can pick. The hostess and the wait staff are extremely friendly. The Chef came out to greet us one evening his name is: Artemio, we told him how wonderful everything was, he was quite happy to hear this news. Once again the food here was excellent.

 Just amazing!
Great dining experience with most amazing service. Had the truffle burrata which was amazing and the filet mignon with gnocchi. Best gnocchi I have ever eaten. The service was extraordinary (Darby did very good job taking care of us). Strongly recommended!!

 Wonderful Dining Experience
We loved Fantino at the Ritz Carlton. The service was unlike anywhere else I have eaten. The food was superb. You can order ala-carte or from the tasting menu. There are many wonderful dishes to choose from. Nice wine selection. Appetizers and main dishes were delicious.

 Amazing night
We ate here last year and made sure it was the first restaurant we booked this year. Filet Mignon was fabulous - last year I had the salmon- wonderful. This year we did the tasting menu along with the wine pairing. One of the finest meals we've had. Even a bread sommelier. 3 kinds of olive oil. Crepe Suzette - yum! Atmosphere is so elegant. Service is impeccable. Highly recommend this restaurant.

 Worth the visit!
If you want the pampering of a formal dinner service with fantastic food this a great option. The portions are reasonable (you can easily get away with a single appetizer and entrée) and the treatment is wonderful. We were able to get out of here under $200 as a couple with a few drinks and an exceptional meal to remember. The chef sent out multiple free "tastes" throughout the meal and even offered a complimentary miniature dessert tray for our choosing which was a nice treat at the end! The food was impeccable - Get the Beef Carpaccio appetizer if it's on the menu - it's FANTASTIC!

 Is There a Sixth Diamond?
This Ritz Carlton Cancun restaurant is outstanding. After dining solo for the evening, I have come to the conclusion that this dining experience is world class. Everything from the attentiveness of the staff to the artistic and gastronomic skill of its chef sets this restaurant apart from all others. It's no wonder that AAA gave the nod in awarding it all five diamonds. Even the hand painted fresco on the ceiling is evidence of its thoughtful approach to providing diners with a wonderful experience.

 Fabulous Italian restaurant at the Ritz Carlton
We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights and enjoyed this restaurant 3 times. Great food, extensive choices, attentive service in a comfortable dinning room with views of the Caribbean. What's not to like?

I have never had such service at a restaurant. The service is French as well as timed perfectly. We ordered from the menu and were not disappointed. Yes expensive but well worth every penny.

Absolutely amazing meal and service (Ernesto and the serving team were out of this world). The fabulous Ritz-Carlton team did not miss a beat or detail!Although it was costly and a two and a half hour meal, it is definitely worth treating your family too!

 A great dining experience, excelent live piano
Both restaurants at the Ritz are very good, and the value for experience is amazing. The dining experience is amazing. We tried a few appetizers and main courses at the table, everything was really really good, but nothing was mind blowing like the Club Grill. Fantino is also a little more expensive than The Club Grill so if you only get one my recommendation would be the Club Grill. Both are very intimate dining experiences, Fantino slightly more romantic if you will, but for the food it was the Club Grill for both my wife and I.
