Great example of what a Mexican Seafood restaurant can be! The beach was nicely kept and there were some nice fishing boats and a perfectly calm Gulf of Mexico to look at from our table. The seafood menu was ample ... the shrimp cocktail was excellent and ample and cheap by MX City standards. The Shrimp "A La Diabla" Style... More

A restaurant on the beach. Many patrons would swim before, during, and after eating Sunday comida. Food is good, but service was not. Waited 30 minutes for the bill after requesting it. But when you are on the beach and not in a hurry, who cares!

The location was absolutely gorgeous, the TA reviews wer good, the food was cheap but the taste was kinda terrible for three of our four dishes. The lobster was under-cooked, the shrimp was rubbery and overcooked, but the fish was good. The service was slow and not very friendly. We only went here because we read good reviews on TripAdvisor... More

We had lunch here after a flamingo tour. It is a pretty palapa right on the beach. We enjoyed our meal with our feet in the sand & an unobstructed view of the sea. We enjoyed a cocktail, salsa & guacamole with chips, & fresh fish with rice. The food was good, friendly service & the prices were reasonable.

We were on a 3-week tour of The Lost World of the Mayans and had lunch here outside on the beech. The fish was fresh. I don't drink beer and the wine they brought me had "turned". The owner then brought a new bottle. We were all impressed with the service.
