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!

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
