Another great spot!

One of the things I like most about living in Cancun is the food. I know that a lot of people really enjoy Mexican food, and I do to a point. However, for a person who chooses not to eat pork, and only eats red meat occasionally.... it can be tough at times.

Cancun has a WIDE variety of great restaurants to choose from, and I do not have to travel to the Hotel Zone if I don't want. Due to the large expat population residing in Cancun we have a lot of international places to choose from that are quite authentic in taste. YAY! Especially when it comes to your basic meat and potatoes!!

John Gray's restaurant here in Cancun is a real gem. It is located in el centro, and happens to be walking distance from my home. Can you say BONUS!!!

The menu at John Gray's has really changed since the first time I dined there. Apparently, they are trying to make it more "economical". However, you are not losing quality and taste for this change. This couldn't make me happier as with their new menu, and prices hubby and I vow to eat there a couple times a week. LOL.

They are open for breakfast at 7 am, and open late during the week and on Saturdays.

Breakfast menu ranges in price from 50 pesos to 75 mxn, and includes a coffee. I highly recommend their die for. Hubby loooves their huevos rancheros.

Lunch menu ranges from 65 pesos for their hand made chicken tenders and fries, to 95 for their hamburgers. Heck, healthier and cheaper than McDonalds. Say it again, BONUS!!!

Dinner ranges in price entirely as you can choose from the lunch menu, and the dinner menu. The most expensive item on the menu is their Filet Mignon at 285 pesos for the large cut, and 195 for the smaller. It is to die for delicious.

The kitchen

All in all, the restaurant is amazing. They recently built an outdoor patio to enjoy in the evenings for drinks with friends, and the place reminds me of "home". I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone  visiting Cancun, and or living here.

That is great to hear! We went last winter and we were very disappointed in the food and prices and had vowed never to return but judging by your blog it sounds like it deserves another shot. It is also walking distance from us. :)

Ashlie - it really is great! I know, in January we were very disappointed, but ours stemmed from the cost... We are VERY happy now, and the food is GREAT!!! You won´t regret giving it another go!! Promise amiga :)

OK sounds like a great place to meet when I'm in Cancun! By the way, a friend told me that a casino opened near Las Americas, have you been there?

KfromMich - Sounds fantastic amiga, and you won´t be disappointed!!!

Yes, there is a casino there...I believe it´s called Dubai Palace! I haven´t yet been, but here from locals that it is quite great. However, from expat friends...nothing special compared to the casino´s we have back home. LOL. I was actually going to check it out last weekend, but we didn´t end up going... I think we will try it out just to see what it´s about. Heck, I am not expecting I think I´ll be satisfied. Most locals like the free breakfast served on weekends...LOL :)
