We visit here every time we are in Cancun/Punta Sam. High end restaurant on the beach. Excellent attentive service (Cinthia was great), excellent fresh seafood with many options, grilled steak was to die for, live music, seating on the beach, and play area for kids....Very reasonable prices. Highly recommend will definitely come again!More

I stayed at a nearby resort with crummy food. I came to Mexico for: Ceviche, Paella, and grilled Octopus. None of this was available at my resort in any way tasty. Cue the advertisement on my taxi - I am so glad I snapped the...URL. These reviews are insane for a reason, the food is impeccable. Its half the price of the resort and 10x the flavor - and GRILLED!!! Yum, need I say more? The food was all fresh and delicious with great sauces to choose from. My dining companion got a potato soufflé that absolutely shocked us. It was garlicky, buttery, Americana-y, and surprisingly good for being in the boonies of the Caribbean. You don't think potato when you are here - but go for it. I also ordered "Oysters" and they were more like gigantic clams, and I got to pick them out of their glass which was cool. The area inside is much bigger than I expected from the outside and they have dining directly on the beach! Gorgeous.More

Flamingos did it again! We ate here when we were in Cancun 4 years ago and are back for our second visit this week. After an amazing charter trip yesterday, we had some Mahi fillets that we brought with us to the restaurant. The chef...made the fish into the most amazing ceviche and prepared it three other ways too. The wait staff was incredibly attentive and there is no better ambiance than what nature provides on the beach under the moonlit sky.More

I came for Valentine’s Day they charged us 4,500 pesos. Which is $300 American. The food was no good and got cold after 3minutes of eating it. The prices of the items we got were not even on the menu I just feel like we...got ripped off. Also when we were told to put in a tip we didn’t have that much money to left we had to use our card for the rest he said he can only put in a 15% tip for it with was $670 pesos. We had told him then we can either do 200 pesos or nothing and then he put it $200 pesos. The margaritas here are also $600 pesos. There was also a dog running around the whole time begging for food from every table. The steak was full of fat. Was not a good experience on Valentine’s Day.More

The food, drinks, and service were so good we are so glad we tried Flamingos! After a long day of travel we stumbled upon Flamingos on Google maps and decided to try it out due to its proximity to the hotel, and I am so...glad we tried it. We got a table for two on the beach right as the sun was setting and it was one of the best moments on our trip even though it was on the first day! Other than the chips and variety of salsas, to start we had the octopus carpaccio, which was a bit different from a traditional italian carpaccio, but was good none the less. And I ordered the fillet of fish "a la leña" (wood fire grilled), which the server recommended and came with a side of veggies, corn and crispy potato strings. The fish was tasty and the veg not overcooked and overall quite a big portion! My boyfriend ordered the coconut curry shrimp, which was although on the sweeter side cooked perfectly so no complaints from him. The real star of the night were the house maracuya margaritas with fresh passion fruit and mint, which were so good that we both had 2!More

Flamingos was so great!! The staff was super kind, sweet, and funny. Attention was prompt, excellent all around, and the staff went above and beyond to make guests feel at home. They joked around with me, had great food, and even provided me with a...personal anti-mosquito candle to ward off the tiny insect pests as they kept biting my feet. The fact that it’s a seashore restaurant made it all that much better, as the evening ocean breeze, lights, and plan trees were SO memorable. Excellent job Flamingos!! Keep it up! 5 of 5 ⭐️✨More

If I didnt come here my entire trip to Cancun would have been a drag. I’m so happy we found this place. The food was AH-MAY- ZINGGGGGG. The ambiance is EVERYTHING. We opted out of celebrating our friend’s birthday at our resort cause the food...was CRAP and made us all sick (Dreams Playa/Secrets). On top of that the prices are affordable, the staff is friendly and the place is clean. The pictures we took on the beach were unbelievable… I’ll probably never come back to Cancun but if this is a MUST TRY.More

The view and atmosphere were great, the food okay, but the price-food quality relationshion quite low . Altough the waitresses were friendly, I had the feeling the restaurant system encourage them to rush you with drinks and meal to try to sell you more. They...seem to be under a lot of stress/pressure. However, everything went relatively well until we paid. My husband added the tip to the bill (more or less 13% of the bill) and then everything changed: suddenly no more smiles, no more friendliness and, as I was heading to the door (my husband and our friend were already outside) and ready to say thanks and good by, our waitress avoiding eye contact, passed me by as another waitress came out of nowhere and gave me a shove. I didn't hurt, but I was in schock, could not properly react but I did realize it was on purpose... so people take your cautions if you dare to go here... For me this was the last time, never again to this place!!!More

Usually all of México list prices in pesos... The only exception I have found are the marine stores - for some reason everything in them is in usd.?!?
