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

This restaurant is on the Malecon with a view of the beach which is the primary appeal of any of the restaurants on the Malecon. I have eaten at other restaurants on the Malecon, but not all of them. My feeling is that Flamingo's is as good as it gets (weak endorsement). Others were not as good. Note that all... More

Tried breakfast and lunch here on different days. Breakfast omelet, lots if choices. Lunch grilled grouper. Both meals were tasty but nothing special. Enjoyed the breeze and the view.

Not much good to say, unfortunately -- we went up for the day from Merida and stopped in for lunch late on a Sunday afternoon. The place was packed and the service was the worst I've seen in 20 years of traveling. By the time we finally got food, it was all cold. They even managed to miss an order... More
