Six of us went to dinner here. Such a great surprise. Food is fresh! Fresh! Fresh! Everything was just delicious. The fish ceviche and garlic fish were to die for and although I didn't try them, the wings were getting rave reviews, at our table. The waiter ( we suspect the owner) was great with a warm sense of humour.... More

This restaurant is in Akumal Pueblo but is one of the best in Akumal. Traditional curbside restaurant that may not look fancy from the outside but has outstanding food. The fish is so fresh, the fajitas are superb and the wings are excellent. Coconut shrimp is one of the specialties and is remarkable. Don't miss out on this local small... More

The fried fish fillet is over the top! I have had a few different meals here. Always good service, a few locals hang out here. However, if you like fried fish, this is the place!

Everyone visits Akumal to swim with the turtles but do yourself a huge favor and choose to visit Gilley's Tequilaville in the Akumal pueblo! The decor is inviting and beachy...the burgers are a best seller due to a secret ingredient...perhaps the chef will share his secret. Fun...food and Mexican ambiance...a true Mexican delight!

so glad we stopped here for supper! Tequilaville is located in the pueblo side of Akumal. We tried a variety of their tacos and they were all delicious. The shrimp tacos....I think with some chipotle....so amazing! When we return to Akumal, a couple of visits to Tequilaville are in order. Thank you!

We had the pleasure of stopping by whilst touring the area. It was a "cool" place to relax with some cold bevies and people watch the local happenings. The bartender was very helpful and friendly!!

We visited this friendly, clean, small restaurant when we were recently staying at Akumal beach. We grossed over the highway to the pueblo and had a great lunch here. Excellent fresh tacos, guacamole, and a great BLT! Very friendly service and reasonable prices. Beer and wine available. We would most definitely recommend this place and visit again!
