Awesome (and strong) margaritas! The food was great overall (shrimp cocktail was sweet so my group didn't exactly adore). I had the shrimp fajitas which were amazing! My friend had the verde enchiladas and reported they were fabulous. We sat on the patio which created an amazing ambiance with spectacular people watching. The service was simply amazing. Friendly, friendly, accommodating... More

I enjoyed meals there several times it was consistently good and many of the times the owner was present to greet you and make sure everything was correct. I found the Sangria very refreshing and a good countermeasure against dehydration from the hot and humid weather . :)

We went to Pik Nik based on all of the reviews and this resturant was simple fantastic. It is off the beaten path and took about 20 min on the public bus to get there. If you have trouble finding it just ask around and someone will point you in the right direction. We were lucky enough to have someone... More

Third trip to Cancun. Each time we venture into downtown. Each time we are reminded there isn't much use in venturing into downtown. But because of other's reviews of this place, we had it on the list to try. It wasn't that hard to find. We were early and were told they needed 30 minutes to open up. We wandered... More

My boyfriend and I decide that we want to judge the best tacos in Cancun. We tried 7 places in 3 days. OMG Pik Nik have by far the most flavorous tacos. Delicate flavors, awesome quality of meat, great quantity in every tacos and incredible and attentive service. Even if you are in the hotel area this place is worth... More

We loved this place! Down-home Mexican food and hospitality. Not easy to find and in a torrential downpour no less, but when we ran in they couldn't have been nicer. Can-do attitude when I asked for a modified enchilada dish, excellent guacamole, chorizo quesadillas, lots of hot peppers (on request), great Sangria and all kinds of beers and tequilas, and... More
