We went there for a night while staying in Akumal. And it was well worth it. I highly recommend the grilled fish simply prepared with some garlic. My wife had fish with a mushroom sauce which she thoroughly enjoyed. Fun atmosphere, great food.

Our driver took us to this place. It's not fancy but fresh fish is wonderful. Lots of local families eating there.

We had grilled baby lobster and it was out of this world. The sides were just as good. Located in the Plaza and has a fun outdoor vibe.

Just left this place and was very disappointed in our experience. They were very disrespectful to my family. Not sure if they don't like Americans or women but they definitely had a problem serving us. Be sure and check your bill because we were overcharged for our meal but didn't realize until we hd already left. Go to Turtle Bay... More
