As a local not my first choice for a meal.

There is nothing wrong with this place it is just average. Food is average to mild, service is average to good, price is average for a tourist place. It does have a nice view from the street side tables and gets good breezes of the ocean. It is the first choice for us when taking my wife's 93... read more

Only American coffee available, low quality. The Breakfast menu is quite limited, the eggs were overcooked, excessive oil, the fruit platter really small. The location is great and service was attentive, the restaurant is missing an opportunity since there are not many options for a good breakfast in Progreso. Hope they improve or someone else sees the opportunity!

Is a very popular restaurant at El Malecón in Progreso; fresh sea food prepared in local style, ceviches and seafood cocktails, fried fish, they even have a few non-seafood plates. Breakfast at the beach highly recommended. Prices are very reasonable.

Headed to Progreso for a late lunch. Love that you can smell the ocean as you exit the car. Flamingos is located across from the Malcolm and beach. Nice location to see the water. The complimentary salsas and chips were nice. The peloton was my favorite. Never very pretty but always tasty. I ordered a mixed cocktail with shrimp, octopus... More

Had lunch there and it was not bad. We had the ceviche, really good, and a couple kebobs that didn't mess either. My complaint is the bill. Like most travelers I have a currency converter on my phone so when the bill came it I wanted to make sure. They over charged by 10 on the conversion. Like others have... More

Used to come for breakfast every Sunday when we spent our winters in Progreso. Came back after a four year hiatus and went back at the first opportunity. It was awful. The bread was stale, our food was lukewarm and so was the coffee. Should have complained I guess. We did not go back during our 3 months stay.

Wonderful service and delicious food! The restaurant is on the tourist-oriented Malecon, where some places cut corners. That did not happen at all in our two visits to Flamingos. They work hard to earn your business. Our waiter Vincente speaks English well and loves to practice with customers.

We have eaten at this restaurant many times over the past 4 years. The food quality is always dependable, ice is safe in beverages and vegetables also safe to eat. The staff is wonderful and soon learns the likes of repeat visitors. They provide abundant appetizers and quickly learned my husband's favorites. They have an extensive menu ... lots to... More
