Good for an evening if you can't find anything else

We were tired to look for places around (they were closed at 22hrs) so we end up at La Tranquita. We were not disappointed, they had a very nice offer of Parrillada at a very cheap price. My friends (first night for them in Mexico) were very pleased and us eating tacos after a while was really... read more

Went with work colleagues on a Thursday evening. Had a very tasty rib eye steak with salad. Cold beer and live music. Fairly busy mainly with local residents, so probably worth booking ahead. Will definitely be back for more!

Service was quite poor for our group of twelve. Several orders were incorrect, and staff was not helpful in correcting the errors. Food was acceptable, not amazing.

This place is a small restaurant downtown Cancun, serves pizza, meat and some seafood. Drinks variety is limited, but price is good. After 10PM they play live music. If your wallet is hurt, try this place.

We really enjoyed our meal there. The food was very tasty and the staff very helpful. It had a nice patio. We would call it perhaps "urban Mexican"

Thank you, Rulo, for an amazing experience! We were really impressed with the delicious food, excellent service, and great ambience. Kids loved their pizza (came out perfect temp ready to eat!) and mom & dad loved the chicken chimichurri & ribeye steak dinners! Dessert was also amazing & my cappuccino was better than any "coffee" place in Cancun! We will... More
