Lunch and watch the Carnival parade

There were 14 of us and we had one long table. When reservations were made we specified separate checks per couple. In the end there was only one long bill and the trip was included in the price. The service was OK,but not outstanding. The fish was good but the veggies wer cold. The shrimp... read more

This is fun place, beach side, with good service. Our waiter spoke fluent English. The menu is very large and diverse with even some Chinese selections ?????. Nine of us had breakfast selection and everyone enjoyed their meal.

My wife and I enjoy dining at Flamingo's when we are in Progreso or the immediate area, as we were yesterday. We have found from many past experiences that Flamingo's serves excellent shrimp in a variety of meals. I had the shrimp skewer and my wife had the garlic shrimp with rice and vegetables. The shrimp, we both agreed, was... More

Get off the bus, turn right at beach and keep walking about 400 yards and you'll reach Flamingoes. Oceanfront dining with "on beach" option. I like it inside, seagulls and vendors are active outside. More locals than tourists, probably because of the walk but worth it. Cold beer, nice botanas but the best is the whole grouper. I like mine... More

Take your time here and order by course (portions sometimes larger than you think). Catch a waiters eye and nod acknowledgement as you enter. Don't let your beer spill by putting it too close to the central hole in each table. Plain fare for those fussy eaters should try "pollo ala planka" for grilled planked chicken breast with fries (papas... More

Been many times to Flamingos over Dec and Jan and service is always the best..Vicente speaks excellent English and is a top notch server. There is a lot to choose from the menu, my favourites are the seafood and pescado frita.

Who knew that Mexico had such great ceviche? I thought it was only in Peru! Had a late lunch that included ceviche, friend whole fish, and lots of horchata. No frills place where a lot of the locals eat. Live music, located across from the ocean.

We are staying in Progreso for a month so all restaurants will get reviewed :-) we had Poc-chuc and chicken cordon bleu, both which seem to be Yucatan specialties. Cordon bleu is called something else here tho. Great meals. Poc-chuc is very thin sliced pork grilled and served with veggies and rice. Drinks were tasty and price was good. Would... More

We arrived 7.30 pm for dinner, very hungry, just from our way from airport. Octopus was the suggestion for dinner, it wasn´t even in the menu, and it was overcooked, completely stiff, beers weren´t really cold and the fried fish under average.

This friendly, busy seafood spot is right on the beach. It is open air so the gulf breezes flow right through the restaurant. My friends ordered a filet of fish in garlic sauce and raved about it. I had shrimp in an garlic chili sauce. Fabulous. The appetizers are gratis and include ceviche. That was excellent! This is obviously a... More
