Food and Service Adequate

While the view on this restaurant was just wonderful, the food was just average. The service was sort of attentive, and the food 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

We spent 10 days at a beach house in Progreso and had dinner here three times. Excellent selections of local seafood and very fresh. Restaurant is open and airy with terrific service from our English speaking waiter. You will enjoy the location, the very fair prices and great service. I can recommend.

We had several meals at this restaurant and I would only recommend breakfast. The location is very nice and the restaurant is clean. The grilled chicken was dry and the chicken cordon blue is smothered in tomato sauce and topped with peas...(what???) not what I expected. My rating is based on location and cleanliness definitely not on food although breakfast... More

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 year old... 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
