“Back for Our Third Year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We came on what was one of the lowest days of the low season and the place was almost full. At the same time restaurants all around were empty. The fish is still the best! The service is better than ever and the ambiance has been up graded. This is the best in Playa for excellent fresh fish.

“A little further down 5th Avenue is a hidden seafood gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

It's difficult to review a place that everything is exceptional. The seafood is fresh, the salsa and guacamole is amazing, the tacos are delicious, the homemade sauces are to die for and the service and value can not be beat. Come here and have your seafood desire satisfied.

“Wonderful Service and Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

The Micheladas are the bomb at Kool Fish! My cousin (lili) and I (sonia) were so happy to have one of them, We also enjoyed the service that, Honorio Canul provided us. He was pleasant and very attentive before and after we received our food. His son was adoreable helping him. We also received special treatment from a Chilango that is the bartender there. I believe his name is Jesus Palacios. El chilango was very attentive with as well and made sure we we're enjoyin ourselves on our vacation. Gracias Honorio y su hijo por sus excellente servicio! Y al Chilango, muchisimas gracias por su hospitilidad y por las micheladas mas chidos!!!! Oops, almost forgot, yeah right!!! The seafood was the bomb. Loved the oysters, ceviche, and my lovely lobster dinner!
