We sat at the bar two night on our trip. Nancy the bartender was outstanding. On our second trip back a few nights later, she not only remembered us, but she knew exactly what drink we had ordered on our first trip.

Keep walking by this restaurant. The service was not good, but the food even worse. We had nachos, quesadilla, and tacos and boy were bad....We have had great food in Cancun just not here.

Located dead center of the madness that is Cancun tourist central. Went on a Friday night with 350 pesos in hand and had a very silly and fun night. Props to our waiter Raul for putting up with us! Drinks are strong, food is.... not so strong. But who comes here to eat?

This is a fun place. The staff really tries to ensure that everyone has a good time. They try hard to get everyone on their feet and even had us dancing in the street. This is NOT a place for quiet conversation, it is loud! Also some of the staff try to sell stuff like photos and extra shots.

Had a great evening at Carlos n Charlies in Cancun, the waiters are good fun and the bar staff entertain with their Cocktail style tricks throwing and spinning the bottles. Great way to spend a few hours in downtown Cancun!

Me and my Fiancé came for dinner, we had such an amazing evening! Food was amazing! We asked for a medium cocktail it was a yard of cocktail... omg amazing. It was a fun filled evening of entertainment, at one point the waiters went around with. Telephone and had customers answer the phone, songs relating to telephones are then played,... More

Stopped in for a drink to wait out the pouring rain for 20 minutes. All these places are the same. Fun, energetic waiters/waitresses - but they love to push the shots and pictures - anything they can sell! Gets a bit annoying. The band was great.

The food is close to American-Style which is not one of my faves, but the staff is very friendly, there was always someone going around offering "free shots" although they take it seem like you need to tip them because of the drink. Overall it was a good experience, don't know if I would go back.

If you don't go to C'nC during the Spring Break it's an entirely different place, food was very tasty, waiters are friendly and if you're firm and friendly with them there's no problem at all. And if you read the reviews you sure will know how the prices are,the choice is yours.It's an experience we liked:)

A place to test the Cancun and Mexican food and drinks here while enjoying the view of the beach nearby.
