The sunset was pretty and the location was convenient to our hotel. The food was very just so so/blah and there was a bizarre band playing during dinner. It is ok. It's not anything to go out of your way for though.

Mocambos - hidden behind a Hertz, it is easy to miss - or not consider seriously- this gem of a restaurant. It is beautiful and the food is excellent. The wait staff are very attentive, and the view from our oceanside table was incredible. The calamari was amongst the best we've had- large but tender. Coconut shrimp was tasty and... More

I was travelling with a family of 13. We made reservations and our table was not ready. We had to wait about 15 minutes. Our table was adjacent to the bar next to the restaurant that had no division. We were unable to hear the live music the restaurant offered as the bar music was too loud. The tables were... More

Good fish tacos and drinks right on the beach overlooking the boats and the water. The best of several beachfront restaurants we tried.

This little restaurant was tucked in between a couple large hotels. We were referred here by one of the local guys working near the hotel we visited. We were very glad we tried Mocambos! When you first walk in under the huge Palapa you are already drawn to the ocean view and the beautiful water right next to you. We... More

Very prompt service. Has a nice view of the ocean. On Saturday they had a few live singers. Ceviche was good but not excellent although we saw a few other dishes that looked good but did not have a chance to try. Might try again and sample some of the other fish dishes.

This was recommended to us by a local. It turned out to be a big hit in our family. The location was great looking over the water. I thought the prices were comparable to the USA. We got drinks, an appetizer, and entrees all for a reasonable amount. Service was good and the food and drinks were good.

This was our 2nd visit to Mocambo in Cancun. Our first experience last year was enjoyable so we decided to return this year. We were underwhelmed this time around. The server was not at all friendly and he seemed to be upset that he had to deal with us. Unlike other tables which were shown platters of the fresh fish... More
