RESTAURANTS AND BARS
20.87 Restaurant: 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.

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.
Cueva Siete Restaurant: 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.

This sense of strength and boldness infuses the drinks which present an insightful Mexican take on classic cocktail tradition.
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.
