La Cava is Banyan Tree's signature dining facility. If you're planning a function, have a large party, or simply want to host a private meal, La Cava is at your service.


At La Cava, each dish is presented as though it were a work of art. When you book a private function in the room, you can work directly with he executive chef to create a menu of your choosing.

La Cava tempts passersby with eclectic cuisine with recognizable favorites on the menu. Foodies who know when a meal's been skillfully prepared and presented will appreciate that this restaurant is considered to be one of the nicer places to dine in the area. The option to eat here is on the table during breakfast, lunch, and dinner, allowing you and your group to try this restaurant almost any time the mood strikes.


La Cava is located in the wine cellar at Banyan Tree. Seating 14 guests, the wooden banquet table features comfortable black high backed chairs, and contemporary furnishings.


This restaurant is a part of Banyan Tree Mayakoba, which is located in the Riviera Maya, in Quintana Roo; it is four miles (six and a half kilometers) to the northeast of Playa del Carmen.

Because the choice of sights and attractions isn't quite as wide, some visitors might need to grab a taxi if you desire a broader selection of attraction and landmarks.

Part of the reason why tourists stay in this area is the availability of active pursuits, for instance, El Camaleon Mayakoba and El Faro. The latter is the closest spot to enjoy the beach, and nestles itself just a short distance from the restaurant.
