Restaurante Natura

Cancun Beach Hotel Zone | (998) 883-0585

Located 5.7 miles east-southeast of downtown Cancun, Restaurante Natura is at 9.5 Kukulcan Boulevard. Isla Mujeres is approximately seven miles (11 and a half kilometers) to the north. Perhaps you could guess that this place is best known for vegetarian creations and one favorite, health food, but here they're also dubbed a hotspot for salads. The cuisine style is Mexican, with a focus on all-natural, healthy food. A full vegan menu is available, which is a rarity in the area. Their most popularly sold items are fresh fruit and combined juices (strawberry, pineapple and orange juice for example) as well as items from the vegetarian menu (like Tacos Vegetarianos). They also have non vegetarian dishes which are very popular like the Camarones Caribeos which are grilled fresh shrimp served over wild rice sauteed in white wine, pineapple, onion, sweet pepper, broccoli, swiss chard, zucchini and garlic, all served inside a pineapple.
