Three Delicious Dining Options
Villa Angela’s neighboring restaurant – Pavo Real by the Sea – is a charming beachfront dining room flowing into an open-air terrace with views of tropical gardens, beach and sea. A beach-side cocktail bar with white club chairs provides service to the beach palapas, dining room and suites. The restaurant serves complimentary full breakfast to suite guests, lunch and dinner by reservation. Choose from French Chef Guillaume’s seasonal menus of French classics combined with tropical and native Mayan influences, or create your own menu. And don’t miss the chance to have a private romantic dinner served in a gazebo on the beach. Innkeeper Etienne Gondran supervises the excellent service and select wine list which compliment Chef’s creations.
Hacienda Pavo Real , located near the highway entrance of the Maroma Bay property and directed by Chef Willy Lattuf, is the glamorous big sister. Set in its own private garden with a small lake, this soaring thatch-roofed structure with picture windows on all sides is filled with art, music and gourmet delicacies. Hacienda Pavo Real infuses authentic flavors from the Yucatecan kitchen, using unique local herbs and spices such as "achiote" seed, "chaya" leaves, pumpkin seeds, and "habanero" peppers. Chef Willy Lattuf marries seafood, beef, pork, duck, turkey, and fresh fish with the traditional textures and spices in a vibrant array of dishes - some handed down for generations and some inspired by modern techniques.
Just across the street, Piano Café Burger Bar is an informal option for lunch or dinner American style. The menu features prime beef and Angus burgers, chicken burgers, shrimp burgers, mushroom burgers, Yucatecan pork sandwiches, grilled steak and grilled chicken, Greek salad, delicious fries and homemade banana bread and brownies, plus full bar and take out service. Irresistible!
