For all those who wish to slap me for not trying Picus on our earlier trips, the line is now forming. We loved everything about it, from the sand floor that starts the moment you step off the sidewalk to the friendly, prompt service to the perfect sunset view to the excellent food. Feeling that even a small ceviche was... More

Had a couple of meals here and both times the quality of the food was excellent. The fish fillet with garlic mushrooms and fries was fantastic as was the prawn ceviche. Prices were great and the service was first class. Added bonus of live music both times I was there and its such a great place to watch the goings... More

Sailboat cruise to the island watching the sunset- then the freshest fish ever! My step-daughter said best shrimp cocktail of her life! Go for the "Pescado a la TIKINXIC " They do have hambergesos for the non- adventurous!

Although the place is located among the tourist traps on the main oceanside street, it is a great place for very reasonably priced seafood. We had the coconut jumbo shrimp which came with pineapple sauce, rice and beans and a large fish ceviche which was huge. Both dishes were very generous in size, fresh and very we'll prepared. The meal... More

I highly recommend the place, the atmosphere for any meal was idyllic, feet in the sands, nice entertainment, smiley and enthusiastic staff. Great Great Great... More

I had the steak tacos and they were not very flavorful. The steak was of questionable quality. I normally do not add sauce to tacos, but had to add because they were bland. I couldn't taste the onion and I got one strip of fresh red onion to add to the three tacos. The mango margarita was decent.

One of my favorite places to eat! The ceviche is incredible and the service is five star. Our waiter was so impressive. He was so busy and also entertaining the island's president, Quintana Roo's Secretary of State, and all of their entourage, and each table he gave the same amazing service to. The atmosphere is great as well. Listen to... More

Came here to kill some time while we waiting the ferry. I got food to go because the food at the resort wasn't all that great. Anyways, the garlic fish was delicious and was one of my favorite meals during the trip! The ambiance was pretty chill. I'd skip the cocktails and just order beers.

Located on Medina, on the water. Tables in the sand just adds to the island feel. They had live music while we there. Had the best conch with garlic butter. Hubby had grilled fish that he totally enjoyed. Fun atmosphere with very reasonable prices.
