Our family had a grand night of laughter and good food at Pericos. Sadly, on our way to the restaurant, we let our taxi driver initially dissuade us from going as he claimed another restaurant two blocks away was much better. After arriving at the other place and ordering drinks, we saw our driver in the restaurant apparently getting a... More

For starters (not food), you will be best served at this restaurant if you are in a festive and sharing mood...and the children can join in as well. Why, because the staff is just out for fun; your fun, that is, and if you don't participate, you really should eat elsewhere. El Diablo (Angel) will circumnavigate your table all night... More

Four of us went to Perico's on February 14. the food and drinks were good and the service was good, but we asked for separate checks. Rather than giving us itemized billed, the waiter just "figured" out our totals for us in US dollars and totally ripped us off. Beware of the waiters. insist on seeing an itemized bill.

Very large drinks but not sure there was any booze in them. Oversized portions of food but it was very tasty. The staff are very entertaining. It is worth the visit.

Perico's is a family treasure. The atmosphere is fun, authentic, and entertaining. The food is mexican fare with oversized drinks and lots of fun jokes, dancing, and shows that you are a part of. No cancun trip with the family should be without a visit to pericos!!
