Of all the places we ate in Akumal, I think La Cueva had the best Margarita's! if you like Margarita's you have to at least stop for a drink, you will love them! The food is delicious also!

La Cueva is an amazing place, staff is incredibly friendly, they serve quite quickly and the menu is delicious. Seafood is fresh and they have the best Ceviche Ive ever tried in Mexico. Good drinks, unique place, good value. First place I visit whenever Im back in the Riviera.

Whether you are eating off the menu or went fishing and are having them prepare it this is a great seafood restaurant. But what we love the best is Carlito... he is so funny!!! Make sure you order a margarita too they are very good.

Although this was an all inclusive package deal, We found that the quantity of the a-la-cart menu was satisfactory to choose from and the quality was excellent. The greatest surprise was that they had a Buffet with numerous appetizers and Desserts, something all the other Restaurants in the Resort did not. The service was excellent and my wife and I... More

After spending the morning at Hekab Be Bibliotecca and snorkeling at the Akumal Beach we were looking for some authentic Mexican Seafood Dishes. Our friends dined here last year and said this was wonderful place. There were 7 in our group and we were easily accommodated. The waiter took our drink orders and soon brought out a wonderful dish of... More

We have been going to La Cueva del Pescador for years, and a few of the visits have been less than spectacular due to iffy service. On our most recent trip, however, we ate at La Cueva two times and it was wonderful in every way. The Margaritas are still the strongest I've ever had in Mexico...be warned. :). Appetizers... More

Restaurant was clean with a nice atmosphere, but we weren't overly impressed with the food. Three in our party ordered the chicken fajitas, which were ok, not great. One ordered the shrimp salad, that was actually pretty good. One ordered the chicken fingers that were dry and tasteless. Lastly, I ordered the seafood stuffed fish filet that was downright awful...

The food was pretty good, service was good and a lot of fun. Had the grouper and it was outstanding. A bit pricey, but then you have to consider where you are. It gets crowded at supper time, so get there a little early.
