Great food, amazing setting

We stayed in Akumal for 10 days and ate here 3 nights! The food is excellent, the setting on the beach is perfect. If you want to have a nice dinner, fresh seafood and keep you toes in the sand, don't miss La Lunita!

Food was excellent and the view was breathtaking. Great place to stop and have lunch. The fish taco's and chicken tostadas were awesome!

As we entered the hotel we noticed signs directing us to the La Lunita Restaurant, we followed them turning a few times and emerging into a modern open airy restaurant with amazing views of the ocean and an outside dining area with even better views and breezes. The place was deserted; it was in-between typical meal times. There was a... More

La Lunita has been one of our favorite places in Akumal for many years. On our visit this June, however, the food was average. The fried calimari was -- well, the only word for it is bland. The tortilla soup, one of my wife's favorites, was ok, but nothing to write home about. We left wondering whether they have a... More

Had the walk almost miles from Akumal center to get to Lunita but it was definitely worth the walk! I ordered the Jumbo Shrimp in 3 chile sauces, honestly one of the best meals I've ever eaten. My son ordered the tuna, huge portion, very tasty! The tamarind margaritas are amazing as are all the various flavored mojitos! We sat... More

Sitting with our toes in the sand, a breeze coming off the ocean, an excellent menu of delicious seafood and tasty cocktails -- what could be better?!

We stopped by for a dinner while in Akumal and had an amazing time. We met the chef- Christian Reyes- is brilliant. The food was super delicious and the whole atmosphere and the view was to beautiful and relaxing. If you want to experience an ultimate beach get away and a unique exquisite meal, this place is a must!

La Lunita was located right below our condo so we went there a couple times on our trip. It is a little pricier than some of the other options around town but I would say its worth the cost. Order a few small plates and a margarita and let your cares melt away. We recommend the coconut ceviche. Really one... More

Started with a fresh mango margarita, so sweet & tasty with that spicy salt rim. Next I had the cream of roasted garlic soup, which was topped with grilled shrimp & toasted coconut. Such a unique dish, the perfect combination of flavors & textures; I am hoping to re-create the dish at home. Finished with the lacquered duck tacos, very... More

Fantastic beach setting and great service. We had fried calamari and when it arrived, it was just rings--no tentacles. This screams either frozen squid or even worse. Our appetizers included a shrimp and fish ceviche which was incredible. The entree, a snapper filet with some type of red chile sauce was impressive. After debating dessert, we decided to take a...
