Love it!

Asked around for freshest seafood in Cancun and was told this is the place. Been back several times and it never disappoints. Mussels are terrific and daily specials...especially fish of the day...are the way to go. They don't saturate the food in oil or butter, unlike many other places in Cancun... read more

Mussels are terrific and daily specials...especially fish of the day...are the way to go. They don't saturate the food in oil or butter, unlike many other places in Cancun. Highly recommend! Also very reasonable prices, great wine list.

Great little restaurant. The dragonfly tacos are mouth watering. They serve a small glass of Caldo de Cameron which is delicious. The salsas are outstanding. The prices are very reasonable.

I had the shrimp quesadillas and the 4 cheese mini-burgers. It may be because we had spent the previous 10 days in Cuba - where apparently adding flavor to food is considered too decadent and bourgeoisie - but everything at Pescado Ciego tasted absolutely incredible to me. The shrimp quesadillas were particularly good with a nice blend of spicy, sweet... More

The seafood soup and tuna dish taste very good, and the seafood Tacos is delicious! We also order the hamburgers, taste is ok, but it's dry and not juicy....recommended to try seafood only!

For entree we had lobster quesadillas and oysters which both exceeded our expectations. Mains were crab filled ravioli and seafood bisque which were both absolutely gorgeous. The whole... More
