My first evening meal and it was delicious and wholesome. I had the Steak Tampiquena with all the trimmings and a drink. Meal was excellent and even I found another restaurant to eat at because of the expat that gather their I went back to The Flamingo when I was in the mood for a full dinner that was delicious...

Another nice restaurant facing the beach. The ceviche was incredible, one of our waiters spoke very good english, those that didn't were very accommodating and always attempted to help us understand what we were ordering.

I had ceviche there almost everyday for lunch! The small is huge, enough for 2 people. That and all the extra little "botanos" they bring you was enough for me. They treat the customers very well, especially once they start to recognise you. Vicente served us most of the time and he was really excellent. He spoke English quite well... More

Flamingos is one of the best on the Malecon. Service is great They are one of the busiest in town, so the food is always fresh of good quality. Great location featuring a view of the Gulf of Mexico. Some staff speak English.

Several of the TripAdvisor recommended restaurants here in Progreso are closed, probably because it is (early June) "low season". Nevertheless I had an opportunity to try several of them and I have chosen Flamingos as the best of the lot. Reasons: Great location right on the Malecon Attentive and courteous service. Good selection of food items. Check out the filet... More

We visited this restaurant when our cruise ship was in port last September. It is right on the main beach side road, and has seating within the main restaurant and right across literally on the sand. Waiters will tend to you when you sit down in either spot, and are happy to bring you a cold beverage right away. The... More

We have been to the Flamingo Restaurant in Progreso twice, on two different trips, once in Nov 2013 and most recently in March, 2014. The meal was so excellent the first time that I was eager to return. First I have to say that I do not understand any comments about the fact that it's less than clean or the... More

I don't know where people are coming up with 5 stars for this place. Other than the location, I certainly wouldn't go out of my way to go in here again. Our food was cold and served by a waiter who wouldn't give us the time of day. The portions are not very large either. It's a big restaurant that... More
