Nice beach restaurant with good atmosphere. Very nice and helpful waiters, lovely spot to sit and have a lunch and a cold beer. Beautiful view of the beach and ocean.

Left our resort to check out the town and found this place. The food was great! I had a garlic grouper and my husband had shrimp tacos. Atmosphere was very nice, We had a couple musicians come play at out table. Amazing views of the water. I would definitely eat here again.

It was huge ...filled with chicken, roast pork, bacon, egg, cheese, lettuce, fried beans, red sausage , red cabbage coleslaw , and tomato ...all in one sandwich !... More

Their cerviche was super and the pescado frito entero wonderful. (Whole fried fish). I also was lucky enough to have some of their creama de coco (coconut pudding) that is even better than it was...

2nd visit here on our way from Akumal to Cancun. A great last stop before we get on an airline and head home. Love this place. The coldest beer. There is a Pelican Dock right outside the restaurant where the boats dock and unload their catch for the day. Pelicans are everywher and seem quite comfortable. Local kids go swimming... More

I guess this was our least favorite restaurant during our time in the Riviera Maya. I did like the ceviche though, and it was nice sitting outside.
