Good food and excellent service. Staff are friendly and know their jobs. They make the Caesar salad at your table and it is perfect.

Wonderful variety of food! My daughter had surf and turf and it was a beautiful filet cut! I had the grouper and it was on point. Literally went for tacos and tequila. The menu came out and the wheels fell off. This is when we all chose a different entree. I will go back for the famed eggs Benedict.

We ordered the pot pies, which were to die for! We loved the tables, the view of the dolphins, and being able to watch music videos with dinner. It kept us entertained while waiting on our meal. We weren't, however, impressed with the snack while waiting (a small fried? ball that had chicken in it with a sauce on top...... More

We stopped with our party of 13 and the staff was friendly and accommodating. Food took a bit but they were very busy and the waiter constantly checked in on us and refilled our (tasty) drinks.It is within the gated community so most of the clientele are the people staying in the condos. Good authentic mexican fare at a good... More

This was the first year we ate here. It's a great little place that fills up fast. Great food and service. We were there for lunch. We were sitting under a tree when our server asked if we wanted to move inside or under the canopy, because it was going to rain. We thought he was crazy, because the sky... More

My husband and I went for lunch there one afternoon last week. The restaurant overlooks the marina area. It's always nice to watch the dolphins while enjoying food and drink. Service was good as only two tables were occupied and no smokers nearby. Food was decent and wine was good. We usually eat at The Pub as the prices for... More

Lovely breakfast, lunch, dinner and special event restaurant overlooking the dolphins which are less than 15 feet away. Hippo has a great Taco Bar on our second patio with all the toppings you can imagine. Fresh daily fish and lobster sold by the gram. Hand carved American Black Angus steaks cut to size.We have large screen TV's for sports events but keep the volume low so others can enjoy the ambiance. Free fresh popcorn and terrific cocktails and ice cold draft/bottled beers make Hippo a gem in Puerto Aventuras for all to enjoy.
