A friend of ours invited up along with a few other friends for a lunch at his Cancun condo apartment penthouse. The views were so beautiful that I couldn’t resist taking a few snapshots with my iPhone. Here they are:

               Our host also served wonderful appetizers of capisce w/ mozzarella, and then a main course of  arrachera beef, rice mixed with corn, and red wine, which I did not photograph. We had a very pleasant afternoon enjoying the views, company, food, and conversation…….Life is good

 

 

 

 

 

Cahill’s Irish Restaurant, in Cancún…..a review posted by on April 21, 2014

On April 1st we were invited to go to  this Irish restaurant here in Cancún. It’s little known and took us 6 years to discover. It’s located in a private home and seatings are arranged in advance.  It is a “family style” restaurant where you sit at a common table with the ample food set out in bowls and on plates. The food was delicious and our hosts and the other invited guests were wonderful. The ambiance is very home-like with many works of art done by the chef herself. Following are a few pictures I took while there.

We enjoyed this meal so much. The chef created a very special event for us. The company at the table was entertaining and we made a few new friends. We highly recommend Cahills Irish resturant.
