Where the locals eat

While roaming around the streets, we happened to talk to couple of people & we were told to eat there for fresh seafood. We were not disappointed.

I had the breaded fish which was pretty bland. My husband had shrimp Diablo, which was wonderful. Spicy but not too hot. The person behind me got lobster; it was huge! The young servers spoke very little English so prepare to point if you don't speak their language.

Great place to sit with your toes in the sand, enjoy sunset and great food! We ordered the mixed ceviche to start and it was yummy, we then ordered an entire fried snapper! Delish

We went over to Isla Mujeres for the day and found Mininos by chance on our walk back to the ferry that evening. The welcome was genuine, the server was charming, the fish was excellent and the Margaritas were the best we'd had since arriving in Cancun the week before, and the salsa was perfection. Glad we lingered.

Random musicians. Great spot to watch the sunset. Awesome food. Great service. The fish is fresh and if you look down from the palapa, you might even see the fish being filleted! You can also bring Your own catch and they will prepare it for you!!

The drinks were were healthy and the staff was pleasant. The salsa and chips were outstanding, which probably made the Margaritas taste better. The view was great with the fishermen bringing in their catch and preparing them for sale. Most relaxing.

Hi, Unfortunately I went there for recommendation and I fancy fish, octopus and squid. After trying not only i was disappointed by cold cold fish and hard old potatoes but also my stomach felt away over the edge. The octopus was over salted and felt like old, like it was cooked on the stove, not grilled how it was described... More

Another little local dive type place located on the west side, near the fishing boats. Recommended by the locals as one of their favorites. Primarily local clientele, not many tourists. Great ceviche, fish taco's and pico/chips. Casual place to take in the local atmosphere, watching the boats, the local families play with their kids on the beach, and the boats... More

One of our cab drivers offered Minino's as a recommendation after we asked where we could get the best, freshest grilled fish. It was his only answer and he said it with a smile. We were totally up for it. Upon arriving to the restaurant, which was tarps over a kitchen area and plastic patio furniture, the young son of... More
