“Great View - Great Start to the Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

We stayed at the Blue Tang. Arrived late in the day and were tired from traveling. Walked over to Play Chel since it was close and recommended as a close place to eat and just two doors down. We sat at a table out on the beach and it was a perfect way to start the vacation. The service was good, maybe a little laid back. We asked for recommendations and were told they just got in some fresh fish. Spouse and I split the catch of the day blackened and it was very good. Kids ate shrimp-kabobs and also liked their food. The sides were also good. No complaints and thought it was a nice open air place right on the beach.

“Beautiful setting with ok food...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

Their ceviche was the best I've had in San Pedro and if it's on the menu, I've tried it at every restauant in town but the rest of the food we had was just ok.

“Lovely restaurant on the north end of San Pedro Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

Great location - right next to Wet Willy's Dock at the northern end of San Pedro Town. (just 2 doors down from the Blue Tang Inn) The palapa bar is cute and in good weather, you can sit outside to eat as well. The food is excellent and is moderately priced - approximately $10-15 per person (US dollars) but you can certainly spend more if you order some of the seafood specials. We enjoyed excellent service at this restaurant - a squall came up before our food arrived and the servers were quick about getting us moved inside. We would definitely eat here again.
