Food is very tasty and good, but the service is slow, so if you are very hungry, think twice what you order. The food is fresh and cook in the moment.

Ordered the ceviche mixto. It came with tons of pulpo and these tiny shrimp .. Very reasonable, too. Also a good place for a swim before returning to Merida

My friend suggested we lunch there and I wasn't disappointed. It was very busy but our drink orders were taken promptly, as was our app order. (The menu is large and I'm indecisive, it's a bad combination if trying to order fast.) Wandering in and out of the beach front restaurant were vendors of various things, music cds, dvds, dulces,...

I have eaten at most of the restaurants in Celestun and this one is the most dependable as far as the food and service go. Food is generally fresh and tasty. Service is a real tossup - one day it will be good, another day it is terrible. Be aware that your dishes arrive as they are done in the... More

Its location is one of the best in the area, but their service as terrible. We waited for about 15 minutes and no one took our order, but other guests were helpe right away. Unfortunately, I cannot tell any thing about their food since we were never helped. We had to go somewhere else. I really hope they improve their... More

Excellent location, right in town on the beach. The scallops carpaccio, one of the house specialties, was a delight. However the shrimp in mojo de ajo was very, and I mean very, heavy on the butter which took a little away from the meal.

We ate here twice in our two visits to Celestun. The restaurant is typical seafood comida Mexican style...simple, tasty, unpretentious. There is seating directly on the sand next to the beach. Service is quick and friendly. Really loved the place. I ate the breaded conch steak, the quesadillas, the breaded shrimp, and the guacamole. All delicious and reasonably priced. Loved... More

We had had a rough day with a horrible AirBnB experience and Los Pampanos really lifted our spirits. The stone crab claws, conch carpaccio, fried octopus and empanadas were all absolutely delicious. Wine was also surprisingly good for a casual beach restaurant. Friendly staff who were also speedier than one might expect in such a laid back environment. We enjoyed... More
