Alfredo is passionate about his cooking and it shows. We were a party of nine and even the kids couldn't get enough. Fantastic margaritas and fresh seafood. Very good service and reasonably priced for the high quality of food.

We had a terrific Mexican meal here over the holidays, highly recommend it! It's about our 20th time in Mexico, to both coasts, and it was one of the best ever! Outstanding ceviche and a huge portion! Enough as appie for 4. The mole enchiladas and the fresh grouper with cilantro-outstanding! The owner served us, poor guy was limping from... More

We recently traveled to Mexico with another couple and decided to venture away from the touristy part of Akumal. We walked over the bridge that crosses the highway and into the older, more modest pueblo of Akumal. Not knowing what to expect, we continued to walk and were pleasantly surprised to come across "El Ultimo Maya". The owner greeted us... More

Easy to find charming delicious local fare just inside the pueblo of Akumal. Reasonable prices, prepared fresh on site, wide ranged menu... Ceviche was super yummy:)

We enjoyed dinner here two nights out of the three we were in Akumal. Though the restaurant is situated in a humble neighborhood, the host treated us like royalty and prepared for us fresh and delicious seafood, chicken, and vegetables. The menu is varied and there are several preparation choices for the catch of the day. The prices are reasonable,... More

My family and I have vacationed in Akumal 5/6 times now. We always look for off the beaten path places to eat and the opportunity to meet new people. We decided to venture into Akumal Pueblo the other night for a less touristy experience. We could not have been happier to find Alfredo and the Ultimo Maya. After lots of... More

This place may not look like much, but if it's real Mexican food you're interested in, rather than the made-for-Gringo stuff that you can get at the "upscale" restaurants here, then you're in for a treat. My husband had the pescado al limon, while I had the pescado al cilantro, and they were both terrific. The fish was tender, moist,... More

We went there and it was a wonderful surprise to find such a gem. It is not a big "tourist" place, it is a restaurant with real mexican food. The owner was absolutely delightful and the whole experience was a pleasure. We are foodies and very demanding and the food in this place was superb. I absolutely recommend this place.

We sat at El Ultimo Maya and had a wonderful conversation with the chef/owner (in Spanish, although his English was very good). Four of us, unimaginatively, had the pescado with mojo ajo. All four gushed over the rich garlicky sauce and perfectly cooked fish. Tacos and shrimp dishes were equally raved over. Dinner for eight, with beers and sodas, came... More

Off the beaten trail in the pueblo of Akumal (on the top of the hill on the other side of the highway from the beach). Decent food, and remarkable good service, given that we arrived with 3 other families and got our food in a reasonable amount of time. Good fish tacos, although they lacked salsa, or much other garnish,... More
