The prong shrimp is so good, great friendly service. Prices are very reasonable. They have good ribs too.

We had an excellent lunch at this restaurant in March. The food was absolutely delicious! The service was great. This is a wonderful place to visit for a meal and relax in Akumal Pueblo. We had been traveling for over two months when we visited here and this was one of the best restaurant meals we had on our entire... More

Highly overated and overpriced. Much better and even less expensive restaurants in Akumal. Our meal was ok but the meals we had at Turtle Bay were much better and less expensive. Not to sound elitist because I love local places but I'd skip the Pueblo altogether. I suspect someone is playing games with the ratings for this restaurant. ..noway does... More

We loved El Último Maya. The restaurant is clean with simple furnishings, located on the main street in el pueblo de Akumal which is across the highway from the beach. The owner, Alfredo, happily explained the menu and told us everything is made in-house from fresh ingredients. He was very friendly and accommodating. We ordered a large mixed ceviche as... More

Had lunch at this small restaurant in the Pueblo of Akumal (across the highway from the beach.) The owner/chef Alfredo was very friendly. The Seafood Taco (grilled fish and shrimp) special looked really good, and 4 of us ordered it. Alfredo apologized that the shrimp had not come in, but we all ordered it anyway. A minute later Alfredo came... More

I went to El Ultimo based on TA reviews, and it did not disappoint! This little place is quaint and the owner, Alfredo, is so friendly and welcoming. I came with my husband and friend, and we had the fish taco special, mango ceviche, and pork tacos. We added on the guacamole, after the great reviews, and we were so... More
