If you want a wonderful meal with a sea view, then you cannot do much better than this place. Great service, a wonderful view and a seafood platter for two that was to die for. We are planning to go back to try more from the menu.

Went with husband and kids...the views from the restaurant were beautiful. The food was average and so was the service. We ordered appetizers, the wrong one came out and had to wait about 15 more minutes before the correct one appeared. The ceviche was OK, but nothing to write home about. We ordered a fillet mignon and lobster combo that... More

Beautiful Location looking over the water. The food is fantastic. The service in top notch. Some of the best seafood I've ever had. This was our favorite food of all the restaurants we ate at in Cancun. This is a must taste in Cancun.

get the whole grilled grouper and do not worry about getting anything else, especially their very nasty wine. go about 30 minutes before sunset, so you can take in the view.

Bland guacamole & fish. Super sweet Bellini's. Macambo locations are strategically placed around ferry terminals to target weary tourists with sub par food.

I'll have to agree with the last review. Unless you like very bland food, I'd keep away. You pay for the view and the service, which is excellent. The paella I had was tasteless, which is too bad, because I really like paella. My wife had a pasta dish with shrimp and black noodles which she is still recovering from.
