Great shrimp!

I was looking for a place with great shrimp and margaritas. We had cooked to order garlic shrimp and bacon wrapped cheese stuffed shrimp. It was great!

While staying at Luna Encantada, we kept seeing this place. On our final night, we decided to try it. The 3rd floor was so picturesque. It was chilly and they handed out ponchos for everyone to wear. The cheese fundido was very good, as well as the green chili chicken enchiladas. But my favorite dish turned out to be the... More

We stopped in for lunch, asked the first person who greeted us off the street if there were drink specials, yes. Sat down and were told by the waiter no drink specials. We both ordered fajitas which were quite good. Waiters were bringing beer and margaritas out on their heads and seemed to really be interacting with their customers. Our... More

Waiters balancing drinks on their head and chatting up all the ladies. A bit over the top and cheesy. Expensive food which was average. The bill came out and they did a circle around the total balance. But they purposely put the circle through the 'tip' section so that you can't see you have already paid a tip. So we... More

This is a good spot for lunch or dinner. It is right in the center of all of the action. They have a great selection of drinks and food items. We decided to sit on the top floor and overlook the street. Yes we did the mariachi program, and allowed the man to take our pictures even though we knew... More

The food was plentiful and flavorful. The service was over-the-top. We had five adults and three children. Including a one-year-old. They were great at keeping the kids entertained. The whole family enjoyed. I highly recommend making a stop here.

What a great place to eat, true mexican food served here, some dishes even prepared at the table, we had a great mexican meal that ended with a Flamboya Banana, wow, spectacular. We were sitting right above the street leading to the ferry to Cozumel, great spot for watching tourists and hearing Mariachi singing.

Tried this place after walking around with the wives shopping on fifth ave. An appetizer platter, four meals, six drinks came in at over 2500 pesos which is pricey but the food was good and beer was cold. The platter was great, I had the pancho villa mixed build your own tacos that were amazing. I would have gave the... More
