It was really awesome. We came to eat here on the first day after a long day of travel from VA to Cancun. They were really friendly and the food was fantastic. We started off with a group of 6 and then some friends joined us - the servers quickly adjuste the tables for us and made room for the... More

Been here a couple of times recently with groups of around 8 colleagues. It's a nice, cosy place with friendly staff and good food. Prices are good too, although the cheap draft beer (70 pesos a litre) is not nice, and I would recommend paying a little more for the bottled stuff.

Discovered it on this last trip and the food was exceptional. Quiet and a little dark, but the grilled meat was to die for! Mexican grilled meats at their best. Will return.

We have been for lunch once and dinner several times. They have a great meat/shrimp platter special on Tuesday nights with chorizo, arrachera, chicken, shrimp, queso fundido, beans, cactus and guacamole with fresh tortillas and chips. Staff is always attentive. Beers on tap as well as bottles, full bar and nice wines. They may or may not have dessert, we... More

We were tired to look for places around (they were closed at 22hrs) so we end up at La Tranquita. We were not disappointed, they had a very nice offer of Parrillada at a very cheap price. My friends (first night for them in Mexico) were very pleased and us eating tacos after a while was really good. The clericot... More

Went with work colleagues on a Thursday evening. Had a very tasty rib eye steak with salad. Cold beer and live music. Fairly busy mainly with local residents, so probably worth booking ahead. Will definitely be back for more!

Service was quite poor for our group of twelve. Several orders were incorrect, and staff was not helpful in correcting the errors. Food was acceptable, not amazing.

This place is a small restaurant downtown Cancun, serves pizza, meat and some seafood. Drinks variety is limited, but price is good. After 10PM they play live music. If your wallet is hurt, try this place.
