The menu shows imagination and prices are somewhat modest for the we got. We tried a number of items - including every tostada- and in spite of being picky customers enjoyed all of it and had a very pleasant, Mariachi free, dinner. The only glitch was dealing with a non existing wine list. We were charged $55 for a wine... More

Small restaurant with nice space. The menu is good and food well prepared. I recommend Sealed Tuna Steak.

Went as it was well recommended on Trip advisor and it lived well up to expectations - friendly welcome good variety with the Tuna being the winning choice though others especially grouper also enjoyed. Willing service - large TV a bit distracting showing endless episodes of the original Batman TV serial but still an enjoyable evening

We visited Pescado Ciego on the recommendation of a local friend. The staff were welcoming and very accommodating, whilst mainly an outstanding fish restaurant, our party of 4 had a guest who can't eat fish! This was not a problem, an exceptional cut of beef served with rustic mash was served ! And it was exceptional. The other diners, choose... More

We stayed in Cancun three days and had dinners here for 2 consecutive nights. Just because we enjoyed a lot. - Very reasonable price - Not many choices, but so far good for whatever we tried. - Services with smiles all the times - Lovely atmosphere (like the Gillians islands TV a lot)

I have eaten here 5 times and ordered the tuna steak every time. It is always cooked perfectly and somehow is more tender than any other restaurant I have eaten in. The tuna is served on top of mashed potatoes that have nice large capers mixed in. The sauce is very buttery with a little lime and soy flavors mixed... More

This serves the best tuna in the world…moist, tender, delicious! How do they do it, when other restaurants cannot. It is served on top of delicious mashed potatoes, with an amazing butter, soy, lime sauce. It truly melts in your mouth. I’ve also tried the delicious seafood soup. They also have nice salads (Thai salad with shrimp) and others. I... More

In Cancun on vacation with friends and found this great little restaurant downtown from Trip Advisor. We sat outside and had great service. The seafood bisque was very good. The fish tacos were delicious. Great drinks, the place got real busy after 7:00 The owner came out to check on us, he is great. You must try if you like... More

I chose this restaurant based on the good reviews on TripAdvisor. I arrived at the restaurant at 6 pm. There was nobody in the restaurant (always a bad sign). There must have been no less than 8 waiters sitting around texting on their phones........ I ordered the seafood stew and a fish taco. Both were seriously underwhelming. I eat all... More
