La Tranquita restaurant in Cancun was a terrific find, and we’re so glad we happened by it. Featuring great quality skirt steak (arrachera), pasta, salad and pizza, La Tranquita offers a tremendous variety combined with very generous quantity, all at rather reasonable prices.
Located in a trendy and very upscale new plaza off Kabah avenue, this restaurant is conveniently located and easy to get to from both Downtown Cancun and the airport; and it is just 2 miles off the entrance of the hotel zone.
When you first get to La Tranquita, you are pleasantly surprised by its quaint decoration and very warm atmosphere. The staff is very friendly, the manager speaks perfectly flawless English (a good amount of the waiters speak very good English as well), and in general you will feel very welcomed. Get a hold of the menu, and that’s when the real fun starts. There are plenty of options to choose from, but I recommend going for their combo packages. We did and loved every spoonfull of it! Our combo was just $550 pesos (about $45 dollars) and more than enough for 4 hungry adults. It included 1 kilo (2.2 lbs) of skirt steak, an oversized bowl of a fancy and delicious salad and a plate of pasta of our choice.
We are picky clients and epicurean eaters and we can say hands down that La Tranquita is a great choice for those who enjoy great food in an out of the ordinary atmosphere. Go to La Tranquita, you’ll love it, guaranteed!
