Harry’s Grill

At Harry’s Grill, a stone wheel representing the ancient Mayan ball game adorns the view of the Nichupté Lagoon at the bottom of the main dining room – and when the light hits, you can see the sun going through the center of the wheel. The restaurant serves a great assortment of dishes of salads, meats and seafood, and they also have arguably one of the best wine cellars in Cancún. To enjoy a special occasion, Harry’s offer private dining with prior reservation.
