Fun venue

Well, it is not your usual restaurant but, in Cancun, this place fits in well. Lively and loads of fun activities it will not be your quietest location. Encouraged to join in with the other diners. Popular with the young at heart and very busy during springbreak vacations. In the centre of downtown... read more

almost never give 5 stars but this place was so much fun it deserves it. Food excellent, staff super friendly and entertainment fun. Only negative thing I can say is to stick with one margarita the second is deadly!

I wanted to go to another place, but it was closed, so my taxi driver brought me here. The restaurant was empty, but the food was great. I had two huge margaritas, guacamole, fish fillet stuffed with shrimp and cooked in a banana leaf, and flaming bananas with ice cream. And then they gave me a shot of tequila on... More

So, a friend of ours suggested this place for our one night out eating in Cancun. From the outside, I honestly was skeptical. It looks like a typical tourist trap, what many outsiders would consider "Mexican" but is really a more Tex-Mex style and I was highly doubtful about the locale. But quickly changed my mind. I had arrachera and... More

Good food. They also have little show and you really will have fun there. I visited this place many times.

Our previous visits to Perico's occurred during the summer and while the food has always been good, the atmosphere and entertainment value was always the draw. Visiting for the first time during the slow season was a little disappointing. While the food was still very good (although a little on the high end), the atmosphere was very disappointing. The waiter... More

This is one of the most lively restaurants I have ever been too. So much fun, live music, participation by patrons: to take old time pictures, or do a conga line & tequila shots. Oh and the food is fantastic. We got a large plate of food (I think it was the Rancheros) that serves several people. There are several... More

Pericos is downtown Cancun and somewhat hard to find. Make an effort to find it and plan to have some " silly" fun moments The waiters are entertainers besides being your server. We took two 9 year old twin grandsons and their mommy n daddy and they all had a blast!! The decor is "everything" Mexican from saddles for bar... More
