Feast on Innovative Mexican Cuisine

Feast on Innovative Mexican Cuisine

August 09, 2016

For a gourmet twist on traditional Mexican classics, try the revered restaurant Axiote, located on Calle 34 and a short ten minutes from our Coco Beach resort.

With selections like duck tacos, beef tongue, and pork belly, this restaurant is sure to change your perception of Mexico’s traditional fare. Every tourist might be familiar with staple dishes like ceviche or flan, but here, the ceviche transforms into a mix of red fish and Mezcal, and the carrot flan supersedes expectations. Axiote’s authentic yet innovative cuisine pleases both the palate and the eye, with each plate artfully curated by Chef Xavier. While waiting for your food, order yourself a cool concoction from the cocktail menu, such as the Acyiau, made with bourbon, strawberry, basil, and pepper.  No matter what you choose, Axiote will leave you wanting more long after you’ve returned home.
