We wanted to eat at this place as soon as we got to Cancun since the reviews are good. However it was such a disappointment. Here it says it is closed at 10:30. We were there at 10:00 but they didn't accept us.

Very easy to find. Perfect English for those English speakers with little or no Spanish.  Go menu with both traditional foods and some catering for the American market. I love the fact that this is more traditional then many others we have seen at the resorts and around town. In the sense that you can pay for cheese. Many rural... More

The staff was friendly, easy to communicate with, and fast. The drinks were great, and we had a great seafood stuffed fish dish for very affordable prices. Pik Nik was also easy to find, it's between Parque de las Palaspas and Tulum Avenue, near the Burger King. If you're in downtown Cancun, give this place a visit!

I reviewed this last year and since returning this year, I have to say the food is still great and the staff is welcoming and friendly. The location is in the midst of downtown and easy to find.

Took a taxi here from the hotel zone just to eat at Pic Nik and it was worth it! The food was delicious, loved the chorizo! The drinks and service were also amazing. Enjoyed everything and will definitely return. The value was also incredible.

Excellent and home made food, almost all tables outside with piittoresk view to the street and lot of people hanging around, good (but almost shy) service and reasonable prices. Not meant to be for fine dining but for the relaxed local experience. Cuacamole as well as lime soup were fantastic.

Found it on trip advisor and got directions for the bus from the hotel zone. It was super easy to get there on the R1 and back. It is tucked away in an alley with a number of other restaurants, totally unassuming. The service was great and the food was amazing. Both the enchiladas and fish dishes were extremely good... More

Just got back to my hotel after eating here and I wanted to write a review while it was fresh in my mind. I had this place bookmarked as one of the places in Cancun I wanted to visit and it did not disappoint. It's located in a small street near Palapas park. We had the guacamole, nachos, fillet of...
