I have come to the restaurant several years, this time around it looked old but the food did not disappoint. We had the frutti di mare: the portions were good, the flavors were very good. For dessert we had the lime pie and it was extremely sweet for some. Overall the quality of the food made the price worth it.

Visited this waterfront restaurant many times over the years. They have some of the best sea food in Cancun. Be sure to go at sunset and sit outside. The views, food and staff are the best. Great place for a date with your favorite person. P.S. There is always a crocodile hanging around just over the railing.

Although the service was excellent, the food wasn't. We had the prime rib special and it had no flavor and was on the tough size. We probably won't try this restaurant agaain.

Excellent service, however we were in an " all inclusive " package with a hotel and the good items on the menu were "extra" . A few in our group elected to pay the additional fees to get the upgrade - it was worth it. the steaks that you could get under the inclusive package were tough and small compared... More
