“Margaritas time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Visited here in June 2013, spent the afternoon swimming with the turtles and wanted to have a little something to eat and have some of the famous margaritas that we have heard about from our friends who have been here a few times in the past.
After an afternoon swimming it was a very nice place to come and cool down in the shade and have a refreshing pitcher of margaritas and some tacos. The next time we visit Akumal beach we will return here.

“Comfortable and Convenient”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Great location right by the beach, with a bit of protection from the wind. Being right off the beach, the restaurant attracts everyone from families to wet tourists, couples to day shoppers walking around Akumal. The food had a nice variety for our group - beach goers with a hearty appetite to divers wanting something a little lighter after 45 minutes of stomaching a strong surge. Everything was fresh, which was a great treat. Beer with lime, tacos on the beach - perfect for our little group. We kept hearing about "romantic Cueva", perhaps this happens at night? During the day, it's definitely open to anyone and everyone.

“Best fresh catch of the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We have been to akumal 3-4 x year for last 10 yrs. this is by far the best seafood around for the money. The fresh fish catch of the day, with fresh vegetables, coleslaw is 100 pesos. You can't beat it. Waiters are friendly, service is great and fast.
