Fun for a night out!

Fun place to go on Sunday nights and listen to live music. We went to several bars and this one had good food and good drinks.

We popped in to this bar for some drinks after some diving and it was a really fun place with great music and nice cold beers and a fab view over the bay. The only small point is that we didn't get lime in our beers but the bar tenders were fun and good humoured and we had a really... More

We had a wonderful time at Viva Mexico! We only went for drinks and had a great time listening to 80's music. Bartender and wait staff were awesome. Next year, I'd like to try their food.

We stumbled upon Viva Mexico simply because we were thirsty and needed water and a soda. We decided to have some guacamole and shared some fish tacos. Both were excellent as was the service. They were the best fish tacos we have had and we live in Florida on the water where we get fresh seafood regularly. Nice view of... More

We went to Viva Mexico at the suggestion of our friend who lives in Cozumel and we had a great lunch overlooking the cruise ship pier and beautiful azure Caribbean. The combo fajitas were very tasty and came to the table in a sizzling cast iron skillet. The meal includes pico de gallo, guacamole and tortillas and was easily enough... More

While we did not eat at Viva Mexico, we did enjoy the Carnival and the sunset on multiple nights. The drinks are prepared perfectly and the service is great! I can't remember our servers name but we had him each time, he rode a Harley and was mid 40's (I apologize for a feigning attempt to describe him), he was... More

We were looking for a good local place for nachos and we were not disappointed. The nachos were hand made as well as the guacamole and pico de gallo. Restaurant is upstairs-great view of the ocean and street (good people watching spot). Relaxed atmosphere and the BEST service.

We visited this place to see the Red Eye Band that had played at our hotel earlier in the week. Sound was awesome but the cocktail drinks were made with syrup. A daquiri tasted like cough medicne. No thanks!

We stopped here for lunch on a whim. The restaurant is on the second floor. It is open air and overlooks the ocean. There was a constant breeze which made it very nice. The food was excellent and the margaritas were out of this world. We had a combination platter which was very tasty. The staff were friendly and the... More
