Wonderful friendly staff. Great shrimp cocktail. Skip the mango margarita...ugh. But the apple mojito was much better tasting. Very good! However it must have been watered down. Usually if I drink a margarita and a mojito in one sitting, I need to stop and pace myself. But after these 2 drinks...my head thought I had just had 2 glasses of... More

great deck on the lagoon with a view to Cun. You can't say enough about the service...the waiters and waitresses are everywhere. You can't set down half a drink without one of them asking if you want more !!

The staff is very accommodating from the front to the waiters. The food was marginal at best. I will say this place is not worth the price! We spent $202 USD on 4 people. 3 of the people were teenagers. So you do the arithmetic. The money spent for marginal food is not worth it. However if your staying within... More

Dear Allen K, Thanks for your kind review, we are happy to hear we have met your expectations, regarding the option of eating inside or outside, it really depends on the day, sometimes even when sunny you get a nice breeze but normally after 6 pm it gets cooler! Hope to serve you again soon, kind regards. Eric Fontaine Manager More

If you like seafood this is a must try! and the service is impeccable. We went here for lunch but it is an amazing dinner place, romantic, on the beach. The menu was so good we couldn't decide and we ordered a lot of food the couldn't be finished.
