This place is a cool little hole in the wall that has the best shrimp ceviché tostadas and carne asada tacos. Food is prices are affordable. It is a cash only bar and grill. The owner Phillipé is awesome and so sweet. And he offers great hospitality. I've been to Cancun twice with 2 different people and they too enjoyed... More

At the time of my visit, Trip Adviser ranked this local restaurant as 87 out of 673. We were excited to sample the local cuisine because we thought mexican food in Mexico should be an authentic experience.

We came here after reading all the positive review on TA, but to our disappointment the seafood was not even fresh, it was tasteless and overpriced! Now I start to question the credibility of this page with 500+ reviews and a really good score

We found this place on TA and would likely have never found it, or looked for it otherwise as its kinds of tucked away..but its well worth the visit in the Cancun zone. Nice cold beers, nice larger shrimp tacos's and a bunch of other great choices which our family sampled.

For great Mexican food at a reasonable price, go to Calypso in Cancun. Super margaritas and fish tacos. Loved it so much, I ate here twice.
