Everything I hoped for in a Mexican meal.

I was thrilled to find out that a highly rated yet cheap restaurant was only a couple of blocks from my hotel. It was early and Jesus was out the front trying to snare passers by. I almost walked past after being accosted in the markets all afternoon. Luckily my wife spotted the name and we stayed... read more

One of the best restaurants we have been in and around Cancún. Food was great and the waiters were extremely nice. Good prices as well.

Get out of the expensive over-rated restaurants in the Hotel Zone and go to Pik Nik restaurant in Cancun Centro. The restaurant is located off of Av. Tulum near Las Palapas Plaza. You will dine inside or outside on a quiet plaza open only to pedestrians. The owner who speaks English came to our table and engaged us in conversation... More

Last night was about the fourth time we've been to PIK NIK during this visit to Cancun. It is our favorite restaurant in Cancun and the margaritas are pretty impressive. $99 MX for a huge 1litre size margarita. I would like to be able to comment on all the different meals they serve but it seems like I can't resist... More

I found this place from tripadvisor. We went there on our first day in Mexico, Cancun. If you want a good margarita cocktail, then this is a perfect place for you. Food was good, but the cheap street food was much better in Cancun!

Generally resist eating at a restaurant clearly on tourist row, but was tired and ready to eat, so stopped here. Rewarded with excellent margarita, great, welcoming service, and an amazingly tasty whole fresh fish. Will definitely be back. Excellent food and drink at a good price.

This is a very nice and local restaurant located in down town Cancun, you can take the bus from the Hotel zone. Ask for the Mole or enmoladas with chicken breast or try the Traditional dish, it comes with a lot of different items such as taquitos, enchiladas, quesadillas etc.

We went there in the middle of the week and were blown away! The civiche is the greatest and our main courses were just as good. We generally make a point to not repeat restaurants when traveling because we want to experience all that we can, but it was so good that we came back on saturday. The food suffered... More
