Dine Around in the Riviera Maya

Dine at neighboring Secrets Resorts & Spas with our special Dine Around program in the Riviera Maya. Guests staying at Secrets Maroma Beach, Secrets Silversands or Secrets Capri have the opportunity to enjoy dinner and nightly entertainment at any of our three resorts in the Riviera Maya. There are so many exceptional restaurant selections at each resort, but we have highlighted a few of our favorites to help make your decision easier.

Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun has six gourmet restaurants serving dinner. We have a feeling you will be very impressed with the romantic setting at our elegant French restaurant, Bordeux. The best seat in the house is our wine cellar offering a private dining experience. Toast your special night with a bottle of wine from our outstanding selection of wines from around the world. End the evening with a stroll on the resort’s beach, which is recognized as the World’s Best Beach by Travel Channel.

Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun also has six gourmet restaurants serving dinner. We would like to highlight Portofino because of its chic ambiance and delicious Italian specialties! The menu is à la carte and the dress code is formal, so come dressed to impress and bring your appetite.

The third resort included in the Dine Around experince is Secrets Capri Riviera Cancun, which offers four restaurants to choose from for dinner. We’d like to tell you a little bit about La Riviera, our casual dining spot serving continental Mexican cuisine served buffet style. La Riviera offers a very lively atmosphere with a variety of themed night dinners.

 

We hope this information helps you make your restaurant selection for your Dine Around experience at Secrets Resorts & Spas. Be sure to read the terms & conditions that apply. Book your stay at one of our resorts so you can experience the best of the Riviera Maya!

Himitsu at Secrets Silversands is Deliciously Fun!

By Guest Blogger Zuko Garcia

Are you planning a trip to Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun? If so, Himitsu is a MUST while staying here!

What makes Himitsu so special?

Himitsu offers modern fusion Pan-Asian and Oriental à la carte specialties, a live Teppanyaki experience and a delicious sushi bar. Guests will also experience fantastic service from waiters, restaurant Manager, Agustín and head Chef Severiano.

We are proud to have the first and only conveyor belt sushi station (most commonly known as sushi-go-round, sushi-belt or sushi-train) in the Cancun-Riviera Maya area. 

Himitsu’s sushi bar specializes in delivering sushi to customers using the Japanese style conveyor belt method, very similar to the famous “sushi boat” system. The belt carries sushi rolls and sashimi around the sushi bar circuit, allowing diners to pick any dish they would like to enjoy!

The sushi chef, Alonso, has more than 7 years of experience in Oriental cuisine. He studied in Japan with great chefs that taught him the secrets of Oriental cuisine.

Some guests like to enjoy the sushi belt experience with some refreshing cocktails to start the night. How about a Geisha cocktail? A delicious house cocktail created especially for sake lovers! Also, Don’t forget to try the house rolls: Himitsu Special and Silversands! Yum!

Himitsu also boasts two Teppanyaki tables where your food will be grilled right in front of you. Chef Israel puts on an entertaining show allowing guests to watch his skilled maneuvers while preparing the food. He might juggle utensils, flip a shrimp tail into his shirt pocket, toss an egg up in the air and split it with a spatula, arrange onion rings into flaming onion volcanoes, create rice pyramids or make hearts with eggs! After his entertaining performance you will realize that the food was as enjoyable as the show.

Secrets Silversands follows a no-reservation policy for our restaurants, but you should keep in mind that Teppanyaki tables have limited seating. Therefore we have created different schedules for our guests to be able to enjoy this fabulous dining experience. You can meet Himitsu’s hostess a couple of minutes prior the restaurant’s opening to ensure your spot for the evening (Himitsu is open from 6:00pm to 11:00pm).

When you visit Secrets Silversands do not forget to stop by Himitsu!
