In Cancun on vacation with friends and found this great little restaurant downtown from Trip Advisor. We sat outside and had great service. The seafood bisque was very good. The fish tacos were delicious. Great drinks, the place got real busy after 7:00 The owner came out to check on us, he is great. You must try if you like... More

I chose this restaurant based on the good reviews on TripAdvisor. I arrived at the restaurant at 6 pm. There was nobody in the restaurant (always a bad sign). There must have been no less than 8 waiters sitting around texting on their phones........ I ordered the seafood stew and a fish taco. Both were seriously underwhelming. I eat all... More

We visit Cancun 5-6 times a year and found this restaurant in early 2015. It has consistently provided excellent seafood and service for a great price. Great wine list. Must try the mussels. The pescado del dia is always a great choice with a large freshly caught filet, nice salad and potatoes. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Highly... More

We found this restaurant as we circled streets looking for a nice place for locals. We weren't disappointed. The food was great. I had the special of the day Marisco Risotto. It was filled with shellfish (mussels, crab), octopus, and fish. The atmosphere was ecofriendly and intimate. Pay attention to the décor.

The food at this restaurant is absolutely amazing. I ordered the steak de atun sellado which was delicious. The only complaint I saw was the portion size which looks small but it will fill you up. The Marisco risotto was well done with mussels, crab, mussels, and fish. I would highly recommend both dishes. Definitely a must go to restaurant.

So while on vacation in Cancun, we went out with a couple that we know from the area. Most Tourists don't like to venture out of the "Hotel Zone" and they took us to Cancun Centro ( the area where most people in Cancun live ) We wanted seafood and we're going to head back to the hotel zone... Because... More

To put it simple: one of the best discoveries when talking about restaurants!!! We were invited by a couple of locals, that seriously recommended going to this place. The locale is small but thats what makes it cozy and inviting. The decor is original and makes you feel like a regular patron. Now, the food is OMG!!! Kudos to the... More
