Everybody recommend us this place for Lunch (we spent the day in Akumal Beach). Apparently it is a well know place, because it has a lot of customers (other restaurants were practically empty). The food was good, but I only would eat there again only...More

Outstanding seafood! Service is great and the food is fresh. Really “must dine at” when in Akumal. The manager also hooked me up with a day of fishing. If asked, they will cook the catch for you that night.

Food was really good, still a tad expensive for Mexico but you get used to being completely ripped off everywhere you go in Riviera Maya! Staff were friendly, spoke good English and looked after us well. Nice little place!

Yes. They have lots of room and a festive atmosphere but also family friendly. I do not think you need reservations.
