Excellent Food, View and Service!

Mandinga has been a favorite of mine the entire 15 years I have been in Cancun. The food is always tasty. The service is excellent. Waiters are more than polite and the view toward Isla Mujeres is enchanting. The restrooms are clean, even if small. Relax and enjoy an afternoon at Mandinga!

We walked from the Ferry Landing to the Restaurant, at most a 10 minute walk, and had a great shrimp dinner. The hosts and waiters were charming, special thanks to Asidro, Evans, and Antonio! A three piece guitar group came in and added to the ambiance plus they knew my favorite songs! Food was very reasonable and delicious! My husband... More

We go as often as we can to Mandinga. It is a local restaurant with very good seafood (with a Mexican flavour). It is a simple, non pretentious place full of local people, always a good sign! Ask for the pescado frito, pulpo en su tinta and the ceviche, our favorites!

We spent 12 days in Puerto Juarez in April 2013. We visited Mandinga for dinner and enjoyed it very much. They close at 7:00 pm so be prepared for an early dinner and not much lingering. It may be best to come for lunch and then take the ferry to Isla Mujares. The food was very good and the wait... More

A small restarurante, with good food, great service and the best view of Cancun and Isla Mujeres. Start with a cold beer or your preferred beverage and enjoy. The food is always fresh, simple and well prepared.

Mandinga is a typical "on-the-beach" Mexican seafood restaurant. As in most of this restaurants the emphasis is on the food rather that the decor. Decor- Very basic setting right next to the beach. In fact, a small ferry that leaves from Pto. Juarez to Isla Mujers leaves from right next to the restaurant. You can see the beach from mostly... More
