Second RAHEL. The food is delicious and the staff are really friendly. Plus the place is large enough to accommodate your group.

I tried the Farmer's Cart organic delivery service

Community Services Unlimited
This is an organization that operates out of South Central. Is local and organic. They don't deliver but have a farm stand open once a week close by USC. They will pack up a bag for you to pick up for a very cost efficient price. Super cool organization.

Restaurant recommendations in Cancun?

Just got back from Cancun and wanted to add that yes, Captain's Cove is very good. We ordered the Lobster Enchiladas and we were impressed. The employees were very accommodating and the drinks were strong.
We did not get a chance to visit Playa del Carmen, but had heard from everyone we spoke with that the beaches are nice. Enjoy!!!

newlywed would love some of your tried and trues

Yes, yes, yes....I agree, lean grilled/roasted meats/seafood, lots of fresh vegetables...add some quality olive oil, a little salt.....mmmmmm, perfect. Stay with basics and flavors that you and your significant other enjoy. I also agree with Cooks Illustrated Mag. If you enjoy preparing food and are patient everything will come together. Good luck and have fun!
