Loved the movie and the shrimp

We had diner at Bubba Gump in Cancun in July. It has a nice selection of seafood and the decor is themed on the movie Forest Gump. Bring a camera so you can take a photo outside in Forest Gump's park bench. The service is friendly and this is a good place to take family and friends. Price is a... read more

Drinks and food were 10/10. We thoroughly enjoyed it until we couldn't fit in dessert. There was a man who takes really good pictures with sombreros and bubba gump signs. Reasonably priced too as you get the opportunity to buy them afterwards. Outdoor terrace is lovely with some entertainment on later in the evening.

$80 for 3 people with no alcohol and I had water only. The food was good but overpriced but at least was filling and a good atmosphere for little kids. Cute lil' clown making balloon hats etc for kids. Flower corsages for ladies.

We had avoided going there because we thought it was too expensive, but compared to other places here in cancun it was actually cheaper and the food was really good.

The waitress was helpful and suggested the mac shrimp for starters, which was amazing! However, we couldn't finish our main meals - but realised the portion sizes are considerably larger than the UK! It's worth a visit for the decor if you like places like TGIF, and want to eat alot of shrimp.

It is a typical chain restaurant. Pretty pricey but the food was large portioned. The atmosphere is geared for kids. Good alcoholic beverages for the adults!

Food was very good and the service was excellent. My husband and I got an appetizer and then we shared an entree. We had the strawberry lemonade and it was very refreshing.

First time to eat at Bubba Gump's..food was great, plentiful but prices are sky high. Be prepared to drop a lot of cash. Service was lacking to very little but I'm guessing because we're were not drinking, not sure but that was the only disappointment.

Unless you have a free foreign exchange credit card, bring lots of cash. I had one draft beer and a fish sandwich/fries - $21 I might add that this waswhile waiting at the airport restaurant. I can't imagine what a family would cost. Ouch!
