Los Pompanos a la Playa

Great place for excellent fish. Casual seating on the beach. Great margaritas. We had a large group of 14 including two babies, and the accommodated us vey well. The speak very little English, but it worked out fine.

I live in Celestun year round. Whenever we want to go into town for a meal we always pick Los Pompanos. In fact, we recommend it to all of our friends and guests for its consistent quality and service. It has a great atmosphere right on the beach and can hanlde large crowds if necessary.

On the beach. We've eaten there 4 times and had a lovely seafood meal each time. Fish filets (several styles), a great octopus salad, grilled conch and calamar. All was very tasty and the service was good.

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!
