Restaurant Review: Harry’s Grill (Cancun) posted by on December 29, 2016

In order to celebrate our 4 birthdays we made reservations for dinner at Harry´s in the Hotel Zone of Cancun.  We  had never been to Harry´s before so it was a new experience for us.

The ambience is quite nice and the noise level acceptable. Our greeting from the Valet and into the restarurant was warm and welcoming.

We were seated promptly. The table was beautifully set and we were ready for a great birthday celebration.

The dinner menu´s were overly large and really were cumbersome for a table of 4

Since Loulse was wearing a black dress the waiter insisted on switching her white napkin for a black one.

A very clever idea, I was handed a Apple iPad that contained the wine list complete with pictures of the labels and pricing.

The meat choices were wheeled by on a cart and explained in detail by one of the 3 waiters that served us.

I spurged....hey it was my birthday dinner and I wanted to check something off my bucket list. I ordered the most expensive item on the menu.....the Kobe beef sampler! It consisted of 3 Kobe beef filet´s from America, Japan & Australia. I can tell you that the piece from Japan was sensational. The other two were very good but in some ways disappointing because of some grizzle which rather surprised me.

Al´s choice was the filet Mignon and he reported that he was very happy with it.

Harry´s is all about excellent service and good food. The 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our visit and plan to return again. The service was very attentive and professional, the food was excellent and so was the ambience. We would recommend that you visit Harry´s while enjoying your vacation time in Cancun. Thank you so much for logging onto my blog. I do this for you so we can enjoy the many fun things you can do while visiting our hometown.....Cancun, Mexico.

Playa Marlin posted by on October 19, 2016

We were in the hotel zone to drop off our Absentee Ballots at the American Consulate so we stopped at the nearby entrance to Playa Marlin to check it out. They have built a ramp and stairs and places to sit as well as bathrooms. Very nicely done and very much needed improvement. Way to go Cancun!
