AL CIELO:                     south of Puerto Aventuras a short distance on XpuHa beach.  Great location, normally good food (but not always in my experience), sometimes bad attitude.   Reservations REQUIRED (they have turned me away when the restaurant was nearly empty. We said we would be happy with what ever the chef would like to serve but they turned their back on us. AND one of my guests had the same experience.  After a couple was dropped off by a taxi, the restaurant would not seat them although the restaurant was not busy.  Adding insult to injury, they would not call a taxi so the people had to walk up to the highway and flag one down.)  52 (984) 840-9012 or web site link Al Cielo
