This was the last restaurant we visited during a ten day stay in Playa del Carmen and Cancun and definitely one of the best. Traditional Mexican - every dish executed well and all the basics (guacamole, nachos, quesadillas, burritos) were faultless. Beer was tasty and the service was friendly and efficient.

What a nice little place to have a meal! It was so good we actually went three times during a 7 day trip. The tacos were outstanding. Loved the tortilla soup too. The staff there were so friendly, I hated to leave on our last night there. And the prices were great too! It took us a few tries to... More

This place was a bit hard to located due to it miss marked map marker on google. We asked some locals and made our way thought the local market which added to the ambiance. The food was solid and the drinks were cold. The chorizo left much to be desired due to the fatty nature of it and the chunks... More

This was our first time eating here and I would be happy to return! Food was great, setting was small but very inviting and a lot to look at in their location. Service was fantastic and prices very reasonable!

This place came highly recommended in Tripadvisor. I can see why as it has a better than average decoration, design and menu layout for typical pedestrian street restaurants. The food and drink was ok, but we had better more authentic experiences in the area. Will not disappoint at all, but I believe it is ranked by its location and safe... More

We've been to Pik Nik twice since we got to Cancun and we have enjoyed our meals and service both times. The first time I ordered the rib eye steak and asked for rice instead of a baked potato. Our waiter Giovanni said that was fine. The steak was very tasty and the rice and everything else was also very... More

Stayed for two weeks and ate there twice. Probably loves lunch more because it was less crowded then. Delicious guacamole for an appetizer. Exceptional enchiladas due to their special green sauce, rather than typical red. Yummy!!! Two for one drinks, oh yeah! Outdoor dining with exceptional service. I definitely will be back.
