Mayakoba Oceanfront Dining at Brisas Restaurant
We dined as a guest of the venue
After a fun morning shopping at El Pueblito and exploring a cenote, we returned to the Fairmont Mayakoba to have lunch at Brisas Restaurant. Brisas Restaurant has beautiful views of turquoise waters and a white sandy beach. It is a restaurant concept created by the popular Richard Sandoval who is known as the “father of the modern Mexican cuisine” and serves local seafood and fine cuts of meats.
When we arrived at the restaurant, we took a seat at a table next to the glass where we would enjoy looking out at the crystalline waters while savoring the delicious cuisine. The restaurant is decorated with blue and white colors that created a relaxing ambiance for everyone enjoying lunch that afternoon.
The menu was vast and featured foods from the raw bar, tacos, and salads. The one thing that first caught my eye was the roasted sweet corn soup. Corn soup is one of my favorite dishes to have while in Mexico, and I can never seem to find the soup as good as it is in Mexico back in the states. The sweet corn soup at Brisas featured fresh lobster, truffle oil, and huitlacoche vinaigrette.
For the main course, my daughter was in the mood for something fresh and light, so she ordered the heirloom tomato and burrata salad. The salad was flavorful and featured hearts of palm, watermelon, avocado, burrata cheese, and a balsamic-chipotle vinaigrette.
While my daughter was enjoying every bite of her salad, it was the lobster tacos that I couldn’t resist. When the tacos arrived at my table, my mouth was watering. The dish features three tacos, each with a large serving of fresh lobster. The lobster was paired with a black bean puree, avocado, and chile de arbol salsa.
Once we were done enjoying lunch at Brisas, we walked down to the beach where we created memories swimming in the ocean together. When visiting Mayakoba with your family, plan to have lunch at Brisas and then play with your children at the beautiful beach in front of the restaurant. Reservations are available by contacting your hotel concierge.
