We ate twice in one week here. First time everything was great. We served octopus fried / grilled in garlic oil and potatoes, and mix of shrimps, lobster and fish in mango sauce all served in a coconut. The food was amazing. The only strange was that the coconut was put on mush potatoes, not sure the reason. We came... More

Peaceful place, with an amazing view, delicious food but be cautious, food portions are bigger than you would expect. For me the Oysters were the ones that made visit twice the place. Felt really pampered by waiters. Congrats to the staff!

This was a recommendation of our concierge a short walk from our hotel. Large thatched roof structure on the beach. Nice view. We had cocktails which were well prepared. My wife and I both got the fish steaks prepared in local styles. It was fresh and the Yucatan styles were a nice change from our US Gulf Coast usual preparations.... More

This restaurant is on the shore of the ocean. It is wide open and only has a roof. It's great ambient. Food is good and not expensive

It was exactly what they said it would be- great food, service and the bartender gave my friend a... More

We went on our first night in Cancún and were amazed. They had amazing cocktails (we recommend the Margarita Mocambo), and the food was beyond incredible. They offer a dish which is a combination of grilled seafoods - salmon, tuna, shrimp, a local fish, and it is absolutely delicious and definitely shareable between two or three people. We also had...
