Wow Kuuk was one of the meals I will remember for the rest of my life. It was the third time I have ever had a tasting menu and I really enjoyed the originality and creativity of the chefs’ storytelling.

The first course was described as what happened to the sea when the meteor that killed off the dinosaurs arrived in Yucatan: ash, fish, fossilized leaves. I loved the care of the plating and impeccable service.

The final savory course was venison and really brought home how unique the style of cooking in Kuuk is: this traditional ingredient was elevated beyond the level of a Michelin star kitchen to a deliciousness that no deer has ever held for me.

Amazing chefs, spotless kitchen and spot on service. Kuuk is that rare meal that is a complete experience, better than a film, and I would recommend for any American visiting Merida check out the theater of the palate these madmen have created.
