That evening my senses were aflame. I noticed everything around me. The decor of the restaurant was the traditional Mexican style with wooden tables and chairs, different colored lights, and cattle horns hanging on the walls. The food on the menu ranged from steaks to seafood. The aroma of garlic and chiles surrounded the diner. A trio of Mariachi singers walked from table to table taking musical requests. I had the singers play "Peregrina" and "Besame Mucho" for my friend. I believe that provided the ultimate romantic touch for the evening. All that we lacked was our meal.
I ordered bistek ranchero; my friend wanted the camarones al diablo. We were able to watch the other diners, and I was able to spend some time listening to my friend while we awaited our food. As with the earlier part of our visit to the restaurant, all was perfection. The steak was tender and spiced the way that I enjoy it. The shrimp steamed in their sauce and were quickly devoured. The waiter gave us enough attention that we had no problems keeping our drinks filled.
The final test of a good restaurant is the price check. This time I was able to walk away from the restaurant with a price that was in the moderate range. I felt as though the evening was worth whatever price was necessary, but I was thankful that the meal had not eaten too much into my budget.
There are many Mexican restaurants in Cancun. However, to enjoy a classical experience, one that is truly authentic, the visitor to Cancun should have the experience of Restaurant Rosa Mexicano. Even the more expensive restaurants cannot provide a better experience.
