Finest Playa Mujeres Food, Restaurants & Room Service

ULTIMATE VACATIONS Description, Reviews & Photos of the Food, Restaurants & Dress Codes at Finest Playa Mujeres Cancun All-Inclusive Resort.



Cuisine at Excellence Resorts has always achieved sensational praise from ULTIMATE VACATIONS. The same can be said for the FAMILY FRIENDLY brand - Finest Playa Mujeres. If anything, there are too many options with 11 restaurants. Too many and they are all deserving.



LADIES: Capri pants; Dresses; Skirts; Long pants; Shoes; Dress Sandals. GENTLEMEN: Formal Bermuda shorts; Long pants; Collared shirts; Casual shoes or Dress Sandals. While this seems simple enough let's be clear - they will probably turn you away (rightfully so) if you show up in cut-off shorts, flip flops, tank tops, bathing suits, etc.

MARKET KITCHEN - International Buffet

Market Kitchen is an air conditioned restaurant with an open air terrace. This is no ordinary buffet for sure. Various stations allow chefs to prepare your meal fresh in front of you from the region of the world you choose.


  • Breakfast: 7 am-11 am

  • Lunch: 12 Noon - 4 pm

  • Dinner: 6 pm - 10:30 pm

BRASS STEAKHOUSE - Prime Steaks with other options

The name of the game at Brass Steakhouse is prime choice steaks. Your choice - Flank steak, Grilled beef,  Tenderloin, Picanha, T-bone, Grilled sirloin strip steak, Argentinian barbecue and Roasted beef ribs. But the feast  does not stop there with a hearty menu of appetizers, soups, salads, pastas, chicken, seafood, pork, and  a variety of specialty hamburgers. In short, the meat lovers can dine to their heart's content - and so can 

everyone else. Great concept.

  • A la carte Dinner: 6 pm - 10:30 pm

DUKE'S LOBSTER & SEAFOOD - Lobster of every kind

Duke's Lobster & Seafood is an extremely popular restaurant. And why not, when you see order of lobster tail after lobster tail served you will understand. This is a lobster lover's paradise! Lobster salads, Lobster ceviche, Lobster soup, Lobster bisque, Grilled lobster tails - and by the way a whole lot of other seafood dishes as well as chicken and pasta dishes.  This open air terrace overlooks the beach and a pool and is also open for breakfast and lunch with a non-lobster menu. We love this place. Can you tell?


  • Breakfast: 8:30am - 12 Noon

  • Lunch: 12:30 pm - 3 pm

  • Dinner: 6 pm - 11 pm

SURF & TURF - Sea & Land Dishes

Surf & Turf is the perfect place for any combination of seafood and land dishes. You can not go wrong here.

  • Dinner: 6 pm - 11 pm


Insieme Trattoria has a fabulous selection of Italian dishes from Tuscany and other regions of Italy. This open air terrace adjoins Duke's and also overlooks the beach and a pool. While many all-inclusive restaurants take a break during the lunch time from their dinner specialty, that is not the case here at Insieme. The lunch menu is pleasantly loaded with antipasta, salads, homemade pastas and wood-oven pizzas. 

  • Lunch: 12 pm - 6 pm

  • Dinner: 6:30 pm - 11 pm

TINTO & TAPAS - World Cuisine to Share

The small dish specialties from Spain featured at Tinto & Tapas are outstanding, and what a variety of options to sample! Another specialty here is Sangria and Spanish wines. This is a great spot for pre-dinner appetizers, post-dinner munchies and even dinner.

  • Dinner 6 pm - Midnight

LE PETIT PLAISIR - French cuisine

In the interest of our policy of honesty - Le Petit was a disappointment. We have dined at the French restaurant in every Excellence Resort and it is typically one of our top 2 dining experiences during those stays. Not this time. It is the first French restaurant we experienced where escargot was absent from the menu. Each presentation was disappointing. This is the only adult-only restaurant on property beside the Bistro.  Hopefully our experience was a fluke or the menu and product will improve.

  • Dinner: 6 pm - 10:30 pm

SHOJI - Asian 

Shoji features exceptional tastes of Asian cuisine from Thailand, Vietnam, Japan and China. The sushi here is very good, and for those who appreciate the show-style Teppanyaki, we did it, and recommend it.

  • Dinner: 6pm - 10:30 pm

LIZO - Mexican Cuisine

Lizo features excellent, authentic Mexican cuisine and Tex-Mex options. Air-conditioned and an open-air terrace.

Dinner: 6:00 - 10:30 pm

LEGENDS - Sports Bar

Finally a real Sports Bar at an All-Inclusive Resort. Legends is a very nice air conditioned Sports Bar with many TV's and promising to show the big games of the day. We have been there when they showed a big PPV boxing match. Excellent casual food menu - hamburgers, pizzas, sandwiches like a killer Reuben, wraps, salads, wings, and plenty of dessert items. 

  • Open: 4 pm - 1 am


For a casual and typical beach fare lunch Las Dunas is fine. Expect hamburgers, nachos, pizza and hot dogs. There is bar service but it can be slow. For a lunch on the beach it will hit the spot. For a higher quality lunch with more variety visit Duke's or Insieme.

  • Lunch: Noon - 4 pm


The Food Truck phenomenon trend continues at The Finest with La Cocinita Food Truck. Experience upscale American and Mexican food truck fare for dinner and for munchies after dinner. 

  • Dinner: 6 pm - 11 pm

The Bistro is reserved exclusively for Excellence members and adult guests of the Finest Club. While reserved for a limited number of guests the menu is expansive.
