Nice but not what I expected

The setting is nice . We waited to be seated and it was a little cool with the breeze coming off the ocean . Prices were in line with most places in the hotel zone but I felt there just should have been bigger portions . Plenty of room for desert and a drink but I somehow felt skip desert... read more

The atmosphere was nice, right on the water, but the food is mediocre at best. Also a little over priced. This was the only place in Cancun that we visited that did not have very friendly servers. It was recommended by the concierge at our hotel so we tried it. We did have fun but not because of anything they... More

We went on a Tuesday for the seafood buffet so we did not see a menu as to other choices. It was a very nice buffet and while the restaurant tried to keep the food hot it was just warm and by the time you were halfway through a plate the food was cold. They make a very nice margarita... More

We found this when we were taking a look at the Isla Mujeres ferry area - we are really glad we did! The service is great, well timed. We had lobster and shrimp and some top shelf drinks. This place is right on the water and it has a really nice vibe! It is a little pricey but when on... More

Good food and good location. The prices are higher but the food is worth it and the margaritas were the best I tasted in Cancun.

Excellent seafood with a fabulous view of Isla Mujeres. The lunch buffet is on Tues, Wed & Thurs for a fair price. Be sure to get a coupon from one of the tour guys for a free welcome drink.

I am always impressed by water front restaurants, but here you really feel you are close to the water. Only sea-front restaurant left in Cancun, that is, out of the many hotels. You will find a tradition when you come here, and try from lobster tacos to fish ceviche and everything prepared great and fresh. Located in front of Chedraui... More
