Great view!

Great seafood restaurant located right on the water. Had a good selection of seafood. Coconut shrimp were presented beautiful. Ceviche was delicious! We were able to take the bus here, and walk to the huge supermarket across the street.

We came here for lunch, and sat at a table right by the water- it was a beautiful view. My lunch was grilled shrimp with tamarind sauce- it came with a side of potatoes, and it was all delicious. My husband had the paella, and he said it was good, but not outstanding. The prices are a little higher than... More

We stumbled upon this place and had a delightful lunch. I had the surf and turf fajitas and they were delicious.

We went there in a large group and they were very supportive in accommodating out seating preferences. My wife and I shared a grilled seafood plate which was good, not grate, but enjoyable. They location by the sea is outstanding. Finding the hotel took some looking up and a phone call to the hotel as it is not on the... More

I had lunch there I ordered langosta tacos, the order had only two tacos and tasted so plain, the side dish was a tostada with beans ! Say what??? The only good thing we ordered was the filet mignon, the service is great but not going back !

I finally ate here for the first time this year and we really enjoyed it. Food was delicious. Drinks were very good as was the service. They had an older woman for a lounge singer and she was surprisingly good. Made for a very nice atmosphere.

We have been to this establishment on past visits to Cancun. Enjoyed great seafood, service, and atmosphere. This time we were disappointed. Truth is, we do not enjoy buffets which is what is now offered. There was an option to order off the menu and that is what we did.Service was lacking. Food was sub par. We won't go back... More

We were absolutely looking forward to this restaurant as many locals recommended it, but not worth the money. The seafood was exquisite and very large menu, however, the food was flavorless. Our lobster had no flavoring and was way over cooked. For the price it is not worth it, great view, but not worth it if the food is average.... More
