 Can I add another two, three stars?
This is one of the better dinners we had, ever. The environment (inside the garden), the lighting, the service, but the food... well, incredible. The food is Asian (touches of Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese).The flavors, the quantity, the several dishes, wow.Besides, the chef Jorge Vazquez went to our table and explained each one of the dishes. The full experience.

The Hidden Garden was delicious. The appetizers were great. The tuna one, the chicken one and the dumplings were all wonderful. The melon ball drinks were very good as well. Pad Thai was ok but I've had better, but would definitely go back again. Loved it.

 Incredibly Romantic
Last year I ate at Hidden garden 3 times in a week. Unfortunately, this year I only ate there once. The atmosphere is incredible. Chef Marco at Hidden Garden continues to cook great food in one of the most uniquely designed romantic restaurants I’ve eaten in. I was thrilled that, although the menu changed, he continued to offer some of my favorites from last year.

 Amazing!
My husband and I visited this restaurant recently when we were staying at Live Aqua. I had heard about the amazing coconut shrimp they sometimes served. It wasn't on the menu, but our amazing server, German, checked with the chef to see if he could make it happen. Chef Jorge came out to talk to us and agreed to make it for us. It was probably my favorite dish I had the entire time I was there!I also had the Satay, Mango, and Carrot cake. It was all outstanding! Their house drink was delicious too! They bring it out right after you are seated. Thanks again to German and Jorge for making our last night at Live Aqua amazing!

 Best food I've ever eaten, I think.
Beautiful and so tasty. Accommodating waiter (Alberto - he's the BEST!). Very romantic atmosphere, and hidden away, as the name implies. Just absolutely delightful, and delicious.

 Cesar Is Awesome
Food was excellent but really writing this review to thank the best waiter ever... Thank You Cesar!!!!The most genuinely friendly, personable, down to earth all around nice guy. He really seems to enjoy his work, he took an interest in us and did some special things for us on the second night we ate there. I can only hope for my children to end up being as courteous and friendly as Cesar.

Everything about this restaurant was impressive. The food was the best on the resort (and that is saying a lot)! During my stay on this resort I visited every restaurant once. However, Hidden Garden was the only one that I went back to multiple times for dinner. Our service was impressive. Our waiter, Cesar Hiden, assured that we wanted for nothing during our dining experience. He truly made each night we dined with him special. This is a "must go to" if you stay at Live Aqua!

 Excellent food, fascinating venue
The food is out of this world, the service is superb, but the real star is the restaurant itself. Nestled in the trees it truly is a Hidden Garden, but I am glad that we found it.

I loved this place. The food was very tasty, the service was phenomenal as was all the service at Live Aqua, and the atmosphere was absolutely stunning. We had a few shots of Don Julio and had a great time.This is quite possibly one of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever been to.

 Hidden Gem in Live Aqua
Hidden Garden became my wife and I's favorite restaurant in Live Aqua. The food is really fantastic and the atmosphere is very romantic and secluded. They start you of with a very refreshing drink; either some cold tea or a delicious house alcohol that I just loved!!!Our waiter Danny was absolutely fantastic. He really spoiled us and made us feel as if we were the only people there. He also cracked a brand new bottle of Tequila for me to try. He was very well trained, professional and also down to earth at the same time.Chef Marco's food and dishes is what kept bringing us back. He was kind enough to come out and greet us and enough made some specialty dishes for us. I wanted to bring him home!!!Special thanks to Jesus the manager being so nice and professional with us. We chatted for a while and he gave us some great tips for Canun in general. This restaurant is well ran and the food is amazing. It's a must go if you are staying at Live Aqua. It secluded under a canopy of trees and plant life. It does get a little humid inside but thats really Canun altogether. Can't wait to go back....

 Romantic and Delicious!
The Hidden Garden is tucked away under the trees at Live Aqua. It is a very beautiful restaurant - with a lovely water fountain wall. The food is Thai food and is excellent. We have had so many things to eat there, but my favorite is a soup with coconut milk and curry. You can ask for more spice to kick your food up a notch too! The staff is so friendly and very attentive. You will not be disappointed!

 Three Times in One Week
We visited Hidden Garden three times during the week we attended Live Aqua. My husband ordered dumplings and Peeking Duck. He is a duck snob and said it was the best duck he had ever eaten. I had sashimi soup and a deliciously light tilapia dish. We drank some wonderful specially prepared iced teaWe enjoyed it so much that we returned to Hidden Garden for dinner, a few nights later. We met Marco, the chef, there who was so warm and friendly. Roy was our excellent server. We loved the food so much at our previous visit that we ordered the exact same things again. For our “last supper”, we indulged at Hidden Garden, for the third time that week. Upon arrival they acknowledged that it was out last night, without us even having mentioning it. While there, my husband broke an implant. The wait staff was so concerned, but it had nothing to do with the restaurant food. It was just poor dental work. You would have thought it happened to one of their family members by the way they acted. We hope hope to return to Hidden Garden many more times when we stay at Live Aqua

While not being familiar with Asian food, I thought this restaurant was fantastic. Luis, our server, was very courteous and helpful and made us feel right at home. Everything we ordered (all of which I have never tried before) was just amazing! Beautifully served. Intimate setting. Lovely place for dining. Thank you for the experience!

Chef Carlos Duran made us a meal that was unbelievable. Obviously this restaurant in Live Aqua is our favorite as we ate 3 of our 7 dinners there last week. Our waiter, Roy Corso, was attentive and very knowledgeable of their menu. His outgoing personality added to our fun evening. Obviously, the manager, Eduardo knows good food and good service to have both Chef Carlos and Roy on his staff.

 Birthday Dinner
The night after my birthday while staying at Life Aqua, Chef Carlos prepared a special menu to celebrate. The meal was expertly prepared and served with the chef at our table for each course. The manager, Eduardo, and our waiter, Roy, treated us like royalty and made sure we had everything we could want. Chef Carlos' food was more than I could have hoped for my birthday celebration! Thank you so much for your wonderful service!!

 amazing dining experience
We have visited Live Aqua twice now and both times have been amazing and above and beyond our expectations from check in to check out all LIVE AQUA staff members were so helpful, hospitable, and overall seemed very happy to work at such a beautiful place. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Hidden Garden. From the time we entered the beautiful tree filled restaurant, it was such a peaceful and beautiful dining experience, Greeted by the hostess, Monzerrat was the first sign everything was going to be great. She was beautiful and so welcoming. The manager Eduardo Garcia was so attentive. Chef Carlos made us a special dinner and came to our table making it all the more special. Luis, our waiter, was the BEST!!!! He was great with explaining our dishes and well spoken and has obviously worked very hard to keep a very high standard in regards to his language. He was also very attentive. The staff was all very great with speaking proper English and you could tell they took great pride in their standard of service. We told everyone about our great experience at the Hidden Garden when we came home. I would highly recommend this resort (and we have many times) to all!!

My wife and I felt like royalty. The asian flavors created by Chef Carlos were incredible. There were so many layers of favor that we just slowed down our dining in fear of missing something. Karla the manager and Ceaser our waiter treated us like we were the only people in the restaurant. We cannot wait to return to Live Aqua Cancun to relive this experience.

 Excellent food, service, and atmosphere at Hidden Garden.
This is a newer restaurant on this hotel property. We have been to this resort previously but on our most recent visit, 8/17 - 7/22/ 2014, this quickly became our favorite restaurant there. The atmosphere and ambiance are wonderful. The food is phenomenal. We had fabulous appetizers - from the chicken skewers, the thai dumplings, the calamari, everything was stellar. The entrees were simply amazing. Their signature drink - the Bay Breeze was a wonderful concoction consisting of coconut liquor, cranberry juice, and pineapple. And my absolute favorite - the pistachio mouse and mango sorbet for dessert, were delightful.We were treated exquisitely by all of the Hidden Garden employees. Kudos for great service go out to our hostess Mariana, our superb waiter Cesar, the manager Karla, and especially Chef Carlos! Keep doing what you guys are doing...we will definitely be back!

 A Special Anniversary Dinner at Hidden Garden
My fiancee and I dined at Hidden Garden multiple times during our stay at Live Aqua in August, 2014. After sampling all of the restaurants on the property, we easily decided that Hidden Garden was our favorite and subsequently chose to visit it multiple times during the rest of our stay. Our favorite experience was when we chose Hidden Garden for our dinner meal on our anniversary. After sharing our special occasion with Luis, our favorite waiter, he provided an incredible recommendation of the "chef's special" (off the menu) of the evening to celebrate our event. The salmon that he brought us was the best salmon we've ever had at any restaurant - perfectly prepared by Chef Carlos, who took special care to visit our table after our meal arrived to ensure it was cooked to our liking. Luis is a gem at the resort - attentive, timely, accurate, and caring - he really took care to ask us about our anniversary and make it a truly special evening instead of just taking it in stride. As a case in point, one visit when we couldn't decide between two entrees, he surprised us with both. Such a great waiter!! Hidden Garden has great food, an incredible ambiance tucked away in the resort's trees, and a stellar team starting with a friendly greeting by hostess Mariana, unbeatable service that rivals the best restaurants I've visited in Luis, caring management who frequently visited our table in Karla, and of course awesome food thanks to Chef Carlos. For a sexy, delicious meal, you won't be disappointed by Hidden Garden!

 Will go back for the peking duck
I will seriously go back to eat the peking duck. This place at the live aqua cancun does an asian fusion and is situated right outside close to the pool. Its easy to miss the place(but then again, thats why its called 'hidden' garden) amongst the trees/plants.Nice decor and ambience. Casual atmosphere, relaxed.But seriously, the peking duck was the bomb !!Also, shout out to Luis for being an awesome waiter.

My husband and I had the hostess Alex seat us in minimal time. Our server Cesar was fantastic. He mad us feel so important yet very comfortable. He explained what Chef Carlos was making as there special that night and explained everything on the menu that I had questions about. We ordered the papaya fish. It was the best meal ever. Cesar continued to check on us. We felt like we were in a five star restaurant. The manager Karla welcomed us and asked if everything was fine. We can't wait to go back to Live Aqua and visit the Hidden Garden Restaurant again. I hope everyone that goes to Live Aqua will visit the Hidden Garden and experience what we did. Everyone was fantastic and I want to thank them all for making our vacation wonderful!!!!!

 Amazing- A must try!!!!!!
We stayed at Live Aqua and out of the 12 restaurants, this was by far the best! Everyone we talked to ate there multiple nights because the ambiance, service, and food were exceptional. Our waiter was Guillevmo Madeva and he was the best!!! Made us feel like we were the only ones there. They also made us a special meal, not on the menu, thanks to Chef Carlos. It was unbelievable. With the help of Karla, we couldn't have been happier. Love, love, love!!!!

Hidden Garden is definitely the best food experience in the Live Aqua Cancun resort. I spent 8 days here and tried all the food options. Hidden Garden had the best wait staff and the food was a notch above the rest. Roy is the best server!!

 Amazing- A must try!!!!!!
We stayed at Live Aqua and out of the 12 restaurants, this was by far the best! Everyone we talked to ate there multiple nights because the ambiance, service, and food were exceptional. Our waiter was Guillevmo Madeva and he was the best!!! Made us feel like we were the only ones there. They also made us a special meal, not on the menu, thanks to Chef Carlos. It was unbelievable. With the help of Karla, we couldn't have been happier. Love, love, love!!!!

 Fantastic meal!
Wow! It truly is hidden. The ambiance is incredible. Truly a romantic space. The food is fantastic as well.. The dumplings rivaled chinatown with a delicate wrapper. I had the stuffed calamari with rice noodles and my husband had chicken with sticky rice. Both were exceptional. Our waiter Roy suprised us a special 25th anniversary dessert....the deconstructed carrot cake as not only unique but delicous...and the plate was decorated so nicely. What a fabulous way to kick off our vacation...wish we had more nights to go back again!!!!

Ate here for dinner while staying at the Live Aqua. It does not take reservations, which is nice since when we're on vacay, we don't like schedules. We didn't have to wait. This restaurant is open air, but men don't have to wear long pants, which was nice for my husband! It's only open for dinner. I had the fish which was topped with a mango salsa. It was delicious! My husband had a beef dish which he really liked. I can't remember what we had as appetizers, but I do remember it was good! We didn't have any desserts as they were kinda odd! This place is hidden in the trees in the middle of the resort!

This is definitely a hidden gem inside Live Aqua. Ale is the manager and she is a sweetheart and the best manager. German is the numero uno waiter, who is very attentive. I will definitely eat here again before we go home. Try the Thao chicken it's delicious. Thank you Ale and Numero Uno German. And don't forget to say hi to Don Julio the cat.

We actually went to the Hidden Garden two times while we were on our stay at Live Aqua. We loved the orange chicken the chicken satay and shrimp dumplings. The service was excellent.

 Very neat atmosphere
You might not get to eat here as you will have to find it first. It is a very hidden garden, but when you walk in you feel like you have been transported to a different location. The atmosphere is what made this restaurant. The food was good, but for us it was a little different than what we like. Most of our group enjoyed it. The only con was that is took a party of 8 over 2 hours to complete our meal. For some reason it took a long time between appetizers and our main meal.

 Quiet and Delicious
Every thing was very good. Aurturo our waiter brought us the house Martini (Watermelon), which I am allergic to. He did not know, so my wife drank both while I drank the house water (green tea with mint). The food was good. My wife had what is basically Orange chicken (was very crispy); she enjoyed it. I had some Mahi Mahi. I received the really large portion, which needed some lime juice since it was dry.

The duck and thai chicken was very good. Pad thai noodles were decent as well. This restaurant is outside so watch out for lizards!

 Great outside setup
Best part of the restaurants the restaurant itself. Situated outside under trees and in the bushes it's not only very private under there but done well with tons of amazing touches. Food was good and nothing you'd find at your normal Chinese or Asian restaurant. I'd recommend the Thao Chicken and the dumpling appetizer.

 The best restaurant at Live Aqua resort
I thought the food at this restaurant seemed to be better quality than the others. The atmosphere is nice, the service was better than some of the other restaurants and the food was good.

 Magical Atmosphere, Great Asian Fare
We cannot say enough good things about the ambiance at Hidden Garden. At dusk and after sunset, it is magical. It is also kind of dark, so you might need your cell phone flashlight to read the menu. But we loved the feeling of being enclosed in the trees and the lovely water fountain near where we were seated. The service was very good here as well. We never had to ask for anything. The food is Asian/Indian, but don't expect it to be authentic. However, what we ordered was very good. We had the duck and satay appetizers - we favored the satay, but both were delicious. We also had the orange chicken and tikka masala. The tikka masala could have used more rice - there was only a small dish of it - but the flavor of the chicken and the accompanying spicy sauce was delicious. The portion was generous too. We did not care for any of the desert selections, but the before-dinner drink was probably our favorite drink of the entire trip. We tried to have the pool bar replicate it later, but they couldn't. Overall a wonderful dinner.

 Romantic Setting
Hidden Garden is aptly named - it's nestled deep within surrounding tropical flora which adds to the romantic ambience. The dim romantic lighting, however, makes it extremely difficult to read the menu. One neighboring couple had to use lights from their cell phones to read the small print.For an Asian/Polynesian venue, the food was average. My partner is an Asian food junkie and was only mildly impressed. Service, the same as throughout the resort, is outstanding. We anticipate returning to Live Aqua in the future, but found their other restaurants far superior to this one,

 Nice range of food options
We ate here on our last night at the resort. It was a nice meal of Chinese dumplings, chicken salad, vietnamese goi cuon roll, mango chicken, mahi mahi fish, and thai chicken (we ordered a pad thai with chicken but got thai chicken instead). The portions were small so we ordered a lot of food :) It tasted good but nothing exceptional. The mahi was a little over cooked and the broth that it was siting in was a little salty. All the other dishes were good. The wait here is a little bit long, so we put our name down and went to get ready for dinner. When we came back, our table was ready :)

 A long stretch to call this "fusion". Confusion may be more appropriate.
Hidden Garden is located in a beautiful and quiet setting hidden away in a canopy of green trees. The friendly and helpful staff were very attentive and pleasant.The starters were excellent, as were the drinks.The soup and the mains on the other hand were not.Tom Ka Gai: a thin bland soup that tasted nothing like a proper tom ka gai. All 4 of us couldn't eat it.Mahi-mahi HK: Mahi-mahi in a broth with lemongrass was probably the "best" main on the menu, but Mahi-mahi and lemongrass are not common ingredients in Hong Kong.Peking Duck: Over cooked, chewy, and covered in a brown sauce. Nothing like Peking Duck is supposed to be.Pad Thai: Tomato sauce pad thai??? Really???Needless to say the mains were culinarily and geographically confused. I don't know how else to put it.Desserts were nice, but after the mains we were ready to go.
