Dining at Excellence Resorts

Anyone can win the hunger games at Excellence Playa Mujeres.

All gourmet and all included is the standard at all 9 international restaurants.  There are no reservations required.   The only wait you will have is one worth every minute.

You can set you taste buds on fire or bring it down a notch with Tex-Mex favorites at Agave.   Share samples of your best bites sautéed in garlic butter, marinated in spices, or hot off the grill.   The perfect place to trade plate portions. This restaurant has authentic Mexican food which means your fajita or burrito never tasted better.

Important Tip:  No reservation at restaurants but for most there is a dress code – know before you go! Casual Elegance means long pants, dressy shorts, and dress shirt. The ladies will need long pants, or skirt and blouse, or Capri pants work.  Casual shoes or really nice sandals are a must (no flip-flops).

Remember…..if you show up in a tee shirt, a tank top, shorts, or beach sandals you will not be seated.

Barcelona features gourmet food from the Mediterranean.  Think paella, beef, tapas, veal and seafood prepared to perfection. Supper dress is Casual Elegance but I recommend lunch where t-shirts and Bermuda sarongs are okay. Just don’t show up in wet clothes, swimsuits, or tank tops and you’ll be welcome.

Basmati is the newest restaurant.  It’s name actually translates to “fragrant” and is a nod to the nutty flavor and aroma of this long grain rice.  The recipes come straight from India. Just checking out their online menu will make you hungry.

You can enjoy some of the same meals served within a few blocks of the Eiffel Tower when you dine French at Chez Isabelle.  The seating offered is both indoors and outdoors but with matching atmosphere.

It is posh and dripping with romance. Each supper meal is accompanied by live music.

Not dressed up and need somewhere to go?  Stop by The Grill at lunchtime where the casually attired can grab fresh salads, hearty sandwiches, juicy specialty burgers or wraps.   Upgrade your clothes to Casual Elegance to hit The Grill at suppertime for prime rib, steaks, chicken or shrimp.

The Flavor Market is perfect for small-plate gourmet tapas accompanied by recommended wines or your favorite beer.   The Lobster House is open air and ala carte plus it is right above the pool (for me it’s all about the Lobster and the butter….Yum!).

I recommend Las Olas for quick salads, pizza, and grilled foods.  Spice is all about a table for two with Japanese iron griddle cooking and comfy Teppanyaki rooms.   Try the Tuscana Restaurant for a traditional taste of Italy.

Your taste buds will thank you every day you stay at Excellence Playa Mujeres.

Bon appetite!
