Great food! Great service! I cannot remember our servers name, but he went above and beyond! If you're looking for a place to eat outside of your resort, this is a great spot.

We were instantly attracted to this restaurant because of the crazy skeletons around. We got sat down and immediately watched all the fun unfold around us - the waiters were crazy, playing with prank items and dolls. They were all dressed up too, being silly with all the customers. Food wise: I didn't think much of mine to be honest,... More

We came here because my husband had come to Perico's 13 years before when on a family vacation with his parents, so he insisted we had to come here while in Cancun for our anniversary. When we came in, there were only two other tables taken on a Saturday night, it was quite dead. We ordered our food and drinks... More

A must if you are in Cancun.....the food, the music, the atmosphere, the wait staff....a touristy place? yes....but that's what makes it so much fun!!!! We found Pericos 3 years ago and we were sorry we hadn't gone years earlier! DO NOT expect a quiet romantic dinner! You won't get it!! Bring your sense of adventure and fun and play... More

Recommended to Perico's by hotel. A very good recommendation!. Service, food, and atmosphere very good!. Staff went out of their way to attend to needs and create an enjoyable atmosphere and experience. Went early so the Mariachis, etc. weren't yet performing but you cold see from the TV/video, that the "party atmosphere" really gets going here!

Best authentic Mexican food and atmosphere. My wife and really enjoyed this place In downtown Cancun the restaurant theme is unique and transport you to the 1800's We loved seeing Cantinflas making jokes all over and the Mariachis were the best. Truly a great experience and highly recommended .

This was my second time here in the last 2 years, this place has so much going on it would take a few days just to see everything. Good food, cold beer and great tequila!

we were approached in the street and accepted this ended up being the best surprise. The food was deliciously Mexican, very good servings, the environment and decoration is very unique! Through out the meal we were surprised with small "lets just say surprises" so you are not expecting it! ;) and this made our dinner a lot more fun and... More
