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.

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

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. 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!
