“Delicious, cheap fish tacos and ceviche”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

I mentioned I liked tempura shrimp and the waiter recommended an appetizer that was simply the most delicious I've ever had. Didn't write down the name, but just describe it. Fish tacos were tasty, cilantro/mayo sauce was very good on everything. Very cheap, so order lots or you may be hungry. Will go back for the aguachile and tempura shrimp appetizer. Beer was cheap too. Trouble communicating with waiter until we asked for English speaking one. Very helpful fellow. Highly recommend for lunch.

“Mmmmmm... Ceviche!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

My review is simple. This is the best ceviche ever. If you're in Playa del Carmen, just go here and eat it. And best of all... it's cheap.

“Delicious lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Our family went here for lunch yesterday. We managed to make selections from the taco list, had some help from the adjacent table. It was very tasty, good value. Enjoyable, energetic atmosphere. I think there are likely some hidden gems on the menue that we miss due to lack of being able to speak Spanish. The plates encased in a plastic bag add some intrigue!

“Excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Popular with locals. Always a good sign. They are known for their Aguachiles, which we learned was a salad and seafood mixture. Our salad was actually shredded cucumber with roaster onion and fresh mixed seafood. Inexpensive.
