Fun time!

Great fun staff at this restaurant! They really kept us laughing. The music was lively. Just a really fun atmosphere all around! Food and margaritas were average...a bit overpriced for the quality...but well worth the good time we had there.

I went to Pericos on advice of Lonely Planet. This place may have been good 20 years ago but the food is terrible. Overpriced bad cooking. Service is good but they need a new chef and new recipes. No locals, only tourists and there are only a few. I'd avoid this place.

I went here during my trip to Cancun because of all the reviews on Trip Advisor and it was only a block away from our hotel. Overall the food was average for such a high price. I can pay less in Texas and get better food. I would consider this your average restaurant. Great if you need something in the... More

We have been coming to Cancun for 10 years now and we always enjoyed a night at Pericos. This year was a complete shock! The dance floor is gone along with most of the staff. No more conga line. The prices have doubled, and I had checked the online menu before we went, and it is not current. When we... More

We visited Perico's on our recent trip to Cancun. Four families went together, and we were thrilled with the experience. The waiters were great, and played funny little tricks on us. Our kids loved this place. The food was very good, tasted authentic, and the ambience and fun levels were off the charts. Highly recommended if you're visiting Cancun -... More

If you want to have a good, crazy time with great food, attentive waiters who play jokes on you and their main goal is to provide you with the best service you could possibly have and want, this is the place for you to go! Perico's is always on my list of Cancun favorite places to go. You'll love the... More

We visit Perico's every time we come to Cancun. We love taking friends and family as it is always a fun evening. The food is fantastic - try the Al Pastor Nachos - and you must have one of their giant margaritas. The waiters are all fun and super attentive - we especially like Antonio. Plan to be here awhile...

Took bus to old Cancun and despite a 5-6 block walk that was starting to get scary. Found Perico's and it was worth the trip. The server are fully committed to providing the guests with a great experience. Tons of fun and great food. Will make it a regular stop.

We have been to Cancun several times and never miss going to Perico's Restaurant in old Cancun. It's so much fun. Besides good food and drinks, they always have you laughing and dancing. The Mariachis sing great and the waiters get you up dancing. The décor is great with paintings and figures. They play jokes and just want to make... More

Perico's is a very entertaing venue. The local artwork is outstanding and the building is a museum to the past. Perico's staff goes beyond great in their effort to entertain their guests. Perico's isn't a regular stop for our annual pilgrimage to Cancun. Meals are served hot and well prepared with a generous amount of fanfare. Check it out!
