“Decent place to eat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Over all a very nice restaurant! Food was wonderful, a bit pricey. Wine sellection was fairly good. Our waiter was great and very attentive. Sax player was a nice touch. Dinner on the patio overlooking the lagoon was great, and if you got chilly the offered small blankets to guests.

“Nice view from back deck...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We had the crab claws... they were pretty good. Pretty limited selection on menu. The deck has a nice view of the lagoon and they had a sax player (nice touch). Overall, nice time, pretty good food, pretty expensive.

“One of our favorites, if not THE favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Food is excellent, but not cheap. The staff is friendly and helpful. Nice location and view as well. If you are going to venture off of your "all inclusive", this is definitely a good choice!!

“Fantastic food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Went there with a large group. I ordered the filet mignon/lobster meal for 750 pesos - very expensive but it was SO worth it! The food was amazing and the lobster tail was big. The only downside is the waiter. He barely spoke English and didn't understand us very well at all. When you have a restaurant in the Cancun hotel zone which is largely Americanized, English is almost a must to communicate with the tourists. Overall tho, the food was amazing and the restaurant was beautifully decorated.

“Really good seafood...........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

We ordered a mixed seafood platter which consisted of grilled fish, stone crab, king crab, shrimp and lobster. The portions were large,fresh, perfectly grilled and absolutely delicious!!!!!!!!!!!
As expected, service very good.
Everything on the menu sounded appealing and offered a large selection of fish, seafood and other choices.
Prices are on the expensive side, but, when compared to U.S. prices, quality and availability, are a bargain
