Delicious, authentic Mexican food!

I ate at this restaurant on 2 occasions, and the food was really good. They serve delicious, authentic Mexican food and great cocktails :-) The service was also really good and the staff even stayed after hours just so that we could have one more drink. Thanks for a great Mexican experience :-)

We waited until our last night to go here. I wish I had skipped lunch as I was too full to fully appreciate the food. Round the corner from burger king in downtown it's a real Mexican treat with huge portion sizes and great flavours.

By far, our favorite place in Cancun although we have only been there a few times. We actually got lost our last visit trying to find it because we failed to write the name or the location down from our last visit. We walked for at least an hour in circles until we found it Just remember Plaza Las Palapas... More

Thanks to Giovany, I decided on the fish fillet with cilantro which came with rice and a salad. Besides being the most delicious meal in our 7 day trip, it also seemed fresh & healthy. Mr. had a pork burrito that was very large and delicious...and yes, it was a bargain compared to what you'd pay in the hotel zone.... More

We got strayed off our path and finally found it. Just as for the Palapa Park, it is not far from the bus station downtown Cancun. Our waiter "Jesus" was ecstatic, in the 10+ years he has been working there, no one had eaten more than 1 spoonful of their hot spicy salsa, even the locals.do not get past 1... More

On a side road across from Cancun City Hall. Group of 5, we went here for lunch as one of the waiters approached us to eat there. Nice man, we sat outside, drinks were delivered fast!!!! Menus were all wrinkled and dirty, I had a burrito, smaller and less ingredients then what would be served to me in Canada. However,... More

Like many other reviews, TripAdvisor is what got us here. We were staying in the hotel zone and wanted to venture into the downtown for some food and exploring. We looked at reviews and decided that Pik Nik was the right combo of easy to get to (just take the R1 bus to Tulum Avenue) and good reviews. We started... More

Ventured here after seeing great reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed! The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I had the garlic shrimp and my fiancé had the steak burrito. We would definitely go again if we had more time here!

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 to eat. First... 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.
