Great little hole in the wall.

We ate here twice during our recent Cancun vacation. We have walked by it for years on our way to and from other places and finally decided to try it based on reviews by people who were leaving when we walked by.

Great food and great service! Totally worth a try! The only bad thing is that they don't have desserts, but their chicken is amazing!

We visited based on TripAdvisor reviews. This restaurant is located in the busy Parque Palapas area, a little off the main streets. It is all outdoor seating, 12 to 15 tables total so you may need to wait a few minutes. It is not a party bar, but does offer cervasas and cocktails. Service is quick and polished, helpful. Our...

Had our best meal in Cancun here. Fantastic grilled octopus, burrito, 2 beers and bottled water for about 360 pesos. Lovely service, you sit outside on a pedestrian street patio. Highly recommend.

Great location near the park. We were there on a Sunday evening and families were out in force enjoying the bandstand, the food vendors and weather. Pik Nik was a great value. Delicious food at reasonable prices. Our waiter Jesus was so nice and the owner stopped by to make sure we were pleased with the food and service. Highly... More

Because we have enjoyed the food and service on past Cancun vacations, we took the bus in from the hotel zone primarily to have lunch at PikNik. My wife had fajitas and I had chicken with mole. She liked the fajitas, the chicken was OK. As always, the service was very attentive, but we were the only guests at that... More

On trip advisor it said it was shut on a Tuesday. We went to try our luck and so happy it was open. The service was spot on, extremely attentive and very friendly. The food compliments the amazing service. The burritos are huge so you better be hungry they are so tasty. Restaurant pricing around 120 for a burrito cocktails... More
