Lovely little seafood place right in Akumal, just next to Turtle Bay Bakery and Cafe. Excellent fresh seafood and a family-run atmosphere. I enjoyed the special of the day (whitefish lightly breaded). Recommended if you're in Akumal!

Good price and location, right next to the public the beach. They were very busy, but our waiter was always checking on us.
