Our driver for the day took us here on our first trip to Cancun 6 years ago. We enjoyed it so much....that we have returned on each visit. More locals eat here and so it's nice to get out of the tourist zone for an authentic meal especially on the weekends when they offer the buffet so you can try... More

On the recommendation of our hotel concierge (who was 3 for 3 on food recommendations) who said this was the best Mexican food near our hotel (the Westin Lagunamar). She was correct we had eaten at 2 or three other places and this was by far the best. We ate at the La Isla location. If you are there go... More

It's a fun, lively place in downtown Cancun. Waiters are fun, mariachis add to the ambiance and the food is good too!

This restaurant gave us an opportunity to experience the food and drinks of Mexico in an authentic environment - although very cliqued. While we were eating two different bands did the rounds of the tables, one the Mariachi style, the other guitar, bass and congas. Good time was had by all.

La Parrilla is located in downtown Cancun a local recommended this restaurant, service was good, but my favorite was the mojitos, one of the best I've ever had!, I also liked the queso con chorizo it was really good, I recommend La Parrilla something different if you want authentic, Mexican food,

I was pleasantly surprise but this place.Live Mariachi music! The food is simple but of prime quality!cook to perfection The place is in Downtown Cancun not far from the ADO bus station.Take a taxi from ADO(30pesos!!don't pay more!just give 30 and leave the cab!they will not question).If you want a real taste of Mexico you must visit it.

This is a fun place... the waiters are so attentive and funny...good food average price. Sit and look out on the lagoon and enjoy..Can't wait to go back. There are two locations we visited the one at the outdoor mall across from the Westin Lagunamar.

This restaurant is located in the Centro (or town) of Cancun, not in the hotel strip. The bus takes about 20 minutes to get you there and then it is about another 10 minutes to walk from there. You will walk through a small plaza with a stage, a play ground and 8 or 10 small food stalls. I didn’t... More

authentic cuisine, fun atmosphere, amazing service, a bit pricey. Overall we had a great time for our visit at this resturaunt and I think thats the point of the place. Its a place that locals and tourists collide as the food and service are out of this world.
