We ate here 5 times!

I was in Progreso for 3 weeks. This was delicious. All fresh. Charming staff. Great location right on the beach.

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

This restaurant sucks. I'm from Montréal and have been in many restaurant in my life, I'm 65. The service was awful. we Had to ask 3 times to get a bottle of wine that we had ordered. When the food arrived, it was cold, for the 4 of us. The waiter has taken our plates back and heat them up... More

OK for drink at lunchtime, but dinner varied from OK to not good. Unfortunately, some of the serving staff seem to make up some of the prices and, inadvertently or otherwise, skim foreign visitors. Parking is available at the rear of the property and reservations do not seem to be obligatory, at least in low season. We arrived for dinner... More

A fine seaside restaurant offering a wide selection of food, drink and fun atmosphere - all the while within view of the beach and breakers of the Gulf. Great place to recharge and relax. Try some of the local Mexican foods, you will not regret it. Some I would label as Curious Culinary Goods. Well priced considering the Cancun type... More

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
