If you are in progreso make flamingo restaurant the place you eat. The food was excellent. They seat you off with sample plates of different things that are all delicious. The food was by far the best meal we have had so far in Mexico. The shrimp ceviche was fresh plentiful and delicious. The shrimp cocktail as well was very good. The sopa de Lima must be tried! You won’t be disappointed if you eat here!

The dishes presented are average,Seafood Cebice is recomended

Depending of the volume of visitors,when the restaurant is full, we need patience

We had planned to go back to Crabster on our day trip to Progresso and I was SO looking forward to it. Friends decided we give Flamingo's a try instead. You cannot compare the two restaurants! Flamingo's is o.k. but I really was disappointed. The decor was quite drab and the service was just o.k....bring food/remove dirty dishes. No conversation...no friendly attempts at up selling. We were ready to spend money but we didn't. We really did enjoy the cervich and the entire fish dishes we ordered were nice but small.

This place is like all the others on the waterfront malecon in Progreso - same service, same view, same menu, with the exception of Crabster which has upped the ante for both service and creativity in the food area.

You will find the usual selections of seafood cocktails (cocteles), cold beer and fish dishes, some with creamy sauces that I would not recommend at all. It is an OK place to hang out and have a meal, but you won't be blown away by any of it.

Be aware that some Progreso restaurants serve up two menus especially on cruise ship days: one for gringos with 'special' prices and another for locals. Not sure if Flamingos does this or not, but being aware is not a bad thing.

We have eaten at Flamingo's 3 times. The first was a relatively early dinner with a group of 6 and everything was wonderful. The food was fresh and hot, the service excellent. Our second visit was later at night, probably too close to closing time. The food tasted like it had been reheated, the service bordered on non-existent. They clearly did not want us there. Thinking that this was just a one-off, we tried again a few weeks later. This time was just as bad as the second, for the same reasons, I assume. Too late in the evening. I think that if we ever try again, it will be for lunch, not dinner.
