Great view, good service, a little bit expensive

The view of the sea is great, the food is good and tasty, and the service is good. If you go there you should try shrimps in the coconut. Prices are a little bit high but they are worth it!

The place has a nice view of the ocean and the seafood was good. Prices are a bit high. Don't know that I would go back.

this is a VERY nice restaurant. It was very professional and the service was #1 and the food was Fantastic. The wine is a bit overpriced but guess it goes with the high class atmosphere they are aiming for.

Last night I enjoyed a superb meal at Mocambo in Cancun. Mocambo is a high-end, white table cloth, beachfront restaurant in Cancun at Plaza Caracol. It has a refreshingly creative menu containing a wide selection of fresh seafood and meat. Definately fresh! Our meal consisted of: jumbo shrimp cocktail with tasty variation on remoulade sauce (although I'm sure traditional cocktail... More

This hotel was a close walk from our hotel Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach Resort. We got seated as soon as we arrived and as usual in Cancun, we were served with a smile and wonderful service. The food was good and the atmosphere was perfect. This is an open aired restaurant so you could feel the warm ocean breeze... More

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... 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
