Where to eat in Cancun

Staying at a timeshare in the hotel zone. First time going to Cancun and not doing all inclusive. Please recommend any places to eat. Open to all cuisines, eager to try anything that might be unique to the area. I've seen lots of Argentinian restaurants listed.
Only concerns are safe well prepared food. Please include any tips on getting around. Last time we took the bus places but I'd rather not ride the bus at night if I don't have to. Thanks.

  1. Since nobody posted here I will post my one positive experience. I went to El Fritanga, it was awesome. Great fish dishes and a very good steak.

    1. I would suggest La Paloma Blanca, La Jolla, pretty much any high end restaurant in the good hotels has a good restaurant. Captain's Cove has a nice view of the water. For a Mexican chain staple, I go to Sanborn's usually for breakfast. There's one downtown.

          1. La Palalpa Belga - although it has been some years since I've last gone and have that it's gone downhill a bit since then.
