Esperaba mucho más. Rosa Negra es mucho mejor opción, por la calidad de comida y servicio. Pagamos 4000 pesos por una cena bastante equis, no lo recomiendo.

Fabulous location, great service, and wonderful loud music. This is a great place for big group celebration but not for intimate discussions. The food is mediocre.

La comida muy mala, el servicio deficiente. Tienen mucho personal pero este no cumple con las necesidades del cliente y tardan un monton para cualquier pedido. Se devolvieron platos enteros sin comer y se dijo estaban malos e igual los cobraron.

Esta muy bonito el lugar solo que no regresaría ya que sube mucho el tono del restaurante y se vuelve tipo antro y no es nuestro estilo

During our stay in Cancun, we hit other restaurants in this group (Rosa Negra, Tora twice) and went to Taboo because of our good experiences at the other places. Beautiful room and food was good, with exception of the olive oil cake, which was way too heavy on the olive oil...very odd to have that flavor so prominent. The service was way off. They were constantly hovering, replacing plates, asking repeatedly if slower diners were done. They were way too intrusive to the point of being annoying and then aggravating. It's like there were multiple people looking for something to do. There was also inappropriate demeaning of wait staff and awkward "joking" with us as diners by an immature floor manager. The service really ruined an experience that would have been pretty good, were it just judged by the food.

Love this newest addition to Cancun Restaurants. Great ambiance, setting, service (Ramon was great) Very Mediterranean with great spices and freshest products. It is a great addition to the other great restaurants of the group, Rosa Negra and Tora. Enjoy them all!

Visited for NYE and was definitely looking forward to the experience. Initially had issues with the description of pricing detailed on their open table reservations, but a guy at the restaurant resolved that quickly and even recovered our cancelled table. But it was downhill from there. First, a cashier came to us as soon as we sat to pay for the meal, so that initially made me skeptical. The dinner came with a bottle of Moet, we started with someones half used bottle in which the waiter insisted was ok. An hour into sitting, we get our first course of four. Two and a half hours later, we get our second. At this point my boyfriend isn't happy, especially bc we haven't seen our waiter this entire time either... He's sort of avoiding us. We ask for a manager three times only to be told by another waiter they'll hv our next course in twenty more minutes after doing this another whole hour. Long story short, we left. Never received an email or call from the restaurant. Ive visited many places around the world and this was probably the most uncomfortable and disrespected Ive ever felt. Sucks bc the vibe great... But terrible service.

Reserve para 5, me dieron una mesa para 4, despues de reclamar, me cambiaron de mesa, a una donde el aire acondicionado goteaba. Me cambiaron a otra donde el area acondicionado motivo el tener que usar chamarra en Acapulco!
La comida fue de 4 tiempos, entre cada tiempo pasaron mas de 40 minutos para que sirvieran el siguiente.

En fin, carisimo, Mas de $4000 mxn por persona y un DJ que confunde el volumen alto con un buen ambiente.

No vuelvo a comer ahi.

Los visite antes en tulum y estaba rico pero aquí estaba delicioso, muy atentos todos con el servicio, gracias a Víctor el gerente que es muy atento, pedimos un pulpo muy rico y un surf and turf que te derrite la boca, el pastel de ricotta redondeo la noche y bueno los shows de violin y saxofon de lo mejor que he visto. Muchas gracias y felicitaciones a todos. Volveremos pronto

Quedé fascinado por el concepto, supero mis expectativas, el ambiente, la música te transporta, todo en mood, la decoración , presentación de platillos y mixología. La atención inmejorable. La comida deliciosa, las ensaladas auténtico sabor mediterráneo, los cortes bien servidos, todo en grandes proporciones, quedarás más que satisfecho, literal. Pero no por eso pierdas la oportunidad del postre el black and white está para chuparse los dedos.
