I have been to Mocambo several times during my trips to Cancun and have recommended it to my friends. After this last visit I will not recommend it or go back again. The quality of the food has decreased as well as the variety they offer and the service was very poor. We had just arrived from the airport and... More

Food was not fresh, the lobster and shrimp were very chewy and hard. Very mediocre. Waiter was impatient. Very expensive and not worth it.

This restaurant is located right next to our hotel so we always get suckered into the convenience of it. I will never go here again. They actually ask you what country you're from BEFORE they seat you. I'm sure this is so they can give you a spanish or English menu but it felt like a big pricing difference menu... More

pretty location, but DARK. not enough light on table to even read the menu. very awkward. Food was ok - not great. Appetizer calamari was best of our meal. my daughter ordered shrimp cocktail appetizer, this is vastly different from what we are used to in the US. Served as almost a soup-like/gazpacho presentation with small shrimps buried inside. other... More

Wow Awesome View! Right next to the water. Live music. Awesome Food (Ceviche to die for), People were super nice. Cost is reasonable! this was our place to go. We tried the ceviche, mariscos soup, toritia soup, fish tacos and it did not disappoint. If you ask your hotel people they can give you a coupon for 2 free alcohol... More

This restaurant is located at the dock where the ferry to Isla Mujeres departs. It's right on the beach next to the Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach Hotel. It is a nice place to eat if you want to have a nice dinner right on the beach. The food was okay, but was nothing to write home about. Service was... More

We passed by this place coming back from Isla Mujeres (getting off the UltraMar at Playa Caracol) and thought it was your basic Beach bar/restaurant. We came back a few days later for a cocktail and appetizers (we were not hungry enough for dinner). We were very surprised that all the tables were cloth covered and had a very upscale... More

It was a great oceanside experience, the service was marvelous; be careful because they will definitely try and upsell you with an immediate chef specials and desserts and wines later but they do have a regular menu. Decent affordable prices ranging between $30-$50 USD for a couple. It was excellent. they have a seafood buffet but we didnt get a... More
