Food & Drink


Incorporating the hotel’s coordinates into its name, Restaurant 20.87—the hotel's casual beachside venue—aims to capture the heart of the UNICO 20°87° experience. The dining experience is fitting with a concept that shifts throughout the day: from a bountifully diverse morning buffet—think fresh juices, eggs to order, and house-baked Mexican pastries—to a classic grill in the evenings, serving up choice cuts of steak and fish.

Bar Balam

Bar Balam is UNICO 20°87°’s day through night cocktail bar, radiating warmth, while calling to mind the mystique of hidden-door cocktail dens of yore. Balam (which translates to jaguar in Mayan) is a powerful spirit in the ancient Mayan tradition a divine symbol of strength and a protector of fields. This sense of strength and boldness infuses the drinks which present an insightful Mexican take on classic cocktail tradition.

Cueva Siete

Named for the seven origin caves of Mayan mythos, Cueva Siete—or Cave Seven—derives its inspiration from all that is Yucatecan. This regionally focused concept aims to harness the mysticism and reverence of Mayan culture, serving dishes deeply rooted in Mexican flavors and traditions. Cueva Siete is unique as a strong, chef-driven concept where the chef will be rotated every so often. First to take the reins is former Top Chef Mexico contestant, Christian Bravo with a distinguished take on both familiar, and lesser known, Mexican dishes.

Inez Café

Cafe Inez is UNICO 20°87°’s own take on European café culture: an important social gathering setting, often a stopping off point in between activities. A way to refuel, rejuvenate and recharge. Fresh juices, coffee, tea and baked goods are served in the morning while the menu transitions to sandwiches, paninis and meal-sized salads for lunch and dinner.

Mi Carisa

Mi Carisa is a love letter to the romantic coastlines and flavours of the Mediterranean. UNICO 20°87°'s most elevated dining experience, Mi Carisa focuses on the traditions and practices of coastal Italian cuisine. That culinary heritage is most deeply honoured in the form of a beautiful wood-burning oven, imparting a wonderful smoky flavour to everything that passes through it. The warm, intimate setting lets each bite convey a sincere affection for the coastal Italian kitchen.

Mura House

While Mura House draws flavours and techniques from throughout Asia, with a concentration on Japan, its cuisine is guided by three principles: the harmony of flavour, precision through preparation, and quality of ingredients. The restaurant aims to achieve a balance between tradition and uniqueness by bringing together three different styles of Japanese cuisine-teppanyaki, yakitori, and sushi.

Palmera Lounge

When Prohibition took hold, the thirsty took off. Many of the best bartenders left for Cuba and the vibrant lure of its nightlife, triggering a Cuban cocktail renaissance. There was glamour, plenty of local rum, and world-class cigars. Palmera Lounge picks up where this intoxicating storyline leaves off: a new take on the classic, high energy Cuban clubs of the 40s with expertly crafted cocktails, bright, inviting design, boisterous live entertainment, and a cigar bar.
