Amazing little beach bar/restaurant right on the docks. Wonderful atmosphere. Very casual!! We had one lunch here and ended up stopping by after dinner one night for a drink as well. Food is very fresh and tasty. Staff is outstanding.

We had octopus carpaccio, grilled octopus, and shrimp tacos. All were excellent. There are only a couple of non-fish options on the menu. Service was slow. Prices very reasonable. Very casual ambiance - small playground area for the kids, dirt floor, plastic tables. Overall, great value for the money.

We found this place via the internet. On top is fast food but walk towards the back and down the stairs to get the restaurant. There's a pretty ocean view, place for kids to play and cute decor. Appropriate for any age range from a family dinner to a cute date night. Food and drink were pretty affordable as well.... More

Having read many reviews of this place I thought I would at least try it. Their fish tacos are off the hook!! Not to mention, its definitely the kindest in terms of cost. This place is hidden a little but well worth the find.

I had high hopes after I read the reviews, but I have to say our meal & my margarita was the worst we have experienced in Cancun. Maybe we have been spoiled after eating fish tacos in southern California, where truly the best and freshest fish tacos are created. First off my regular margarita was so watered down, I opted...

This little taco/torta/burrito stand is cheap and serves delicious food. Save on lunch and pop over for delicious seafood and meat/poultry Mexican food. The menu as listed is not available in its entirety, but the cook will let you know what’s on offer. She only spoke Spanish, so you might be out of luck if you are a monolingual English... More

Four years running eating our "opening night meal" at this hidden little gem. You enter via a nondescript hallway adjacent the Dominos. Down the staircase, and onto a lovely little beach adjacent the bay, with lights, palapas and tables sprinkled about. Waitstaff has always been incredibly friendly and happy to see you. The food is always tremendous and affordably priced.... More

Where else can you get really good tacos for low price??? The service is also amazing. The place is small. But has a large table that can fit about 20 people. This is fast food but the final product was not very oily at all. Very well balanced. The cook is also a very nice lady! We came to eat... More
