“Great place to relax, eat and people watch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Walking past with my husband and his parents (in their 70's). Looked a nice place and we were not disappointed. Service was excellent, waiter was fun and chatty. Beers are cheap and most important for husband, served cold. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.

“Cheap beer, great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

We arrived at the ferry dock to go back to Coz after a great day on the beaches of Akumal to find we had to wait 1 hr 50 min for the next ferry. I spotted the sign that read 4 beers for $hr8.00! This was half the price if a drink at Senor frogs.... We also tried the Tuna tostados and they were
great.

“Good vegan and gluten-free options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Don't miss the hibiscus tortillas. Lots of nice options. This place is right in the touristy area, south at the end of the tourist area of 5th Ave, slightly to the left at the plaza, but the menu is unique and the food is quite tasty.
