Cheese glorious cheeses how I love thee so. I wait with anticipation as you melt into a gooey consistency until the ideal moment when you are ready for a perfectly toasted piece of day old bread to be dunked into your bubbling mass. Then I eagerly scoop you up with bread that has been speared with a 2 pronged fork and gingerly place you into my mouth all the while anticipating your creamy, delicate flavour. I am never disappointed and Voila!Les Fondues Restaurant, which boasts 15 different cheese fondue combinations, enables this girl’s monthly indulgence in creamy, gooey cheese.
Paco Alcalde, who has 27 years in the restaurant business, opened Voila! with his wife because he wanted to offer the people of Cancun something different. Aside from an impressive fondue menu that tempts you with tantalizing flavours such as curry, honey-mustard, artichoke and dark beer they also offer salads, beef or shrimp Bourguignonne, Parisian sandwiches, pate and a large variety of specials as well as desserts and a well-stocked wine cellar.
Hubby and I have had the pleasure of dining at Voila, located in Plaza Solare, twice now and we have sampled their curry and also their flor de calabaza (zucchini flower) fondue as well as their to-die-for house pate with caramelized red onion. We chose to sit outside but they have a comfortable inside dining area with soft music and interesting art work adorning the walls.
So, if you are a cheese lover like me or you are just looking for somewhere new to try in Cancun be sure to visit Voila! for a pleasant evening with your significant other or a group of friends.
