Good local fish and crab.

Nice setting, comfortable seating and dependable Wi-Fi. The only restaurant we would eat at more than once.

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.

We ate here once for lunch. My husband again enjoyed the seafood, but found their neighbours to be more substantial and fairly cheaper. I paid 40 pesos for a single cheese quesadilla.

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!
