Today we came to this restaurant to be in front of the ocean as it is the only restaurant in front of the ocean that is open to the public. Being locals we have been here before and one more time we have not been disappointed. Great sea food and service with a great view of Isla Mujeres in front.... More

This beach side restraunt had good food, a wonderful singer but even better is the bar. You can sit drink your way through a lovely selection of beers and just watch the waves roll in on the beach. If your looking for a quiet spot for a cold beer this is it.

The food and views are great. Go casual or dress up . Great for a night out followed by stroll on the beach. Large portions - be sure to share.

Had an early dinner at this restaurant when we came back from our day trip from Isla Mujeres. I read the reviews on Yelp when I was looking for the best paella in Cancun. I was so excited to try their paella since I know paella are made differently in Mexico compared with Spain. My paella order came and it... More

Traveled to Cancun with my daughter. We met the owner and chef in passing and they gave us their business cards. We decided to try Mocambo's the next night. Started off with delicious frozen wine drinks. Lobster bisque for an appetizer and steak and salmon for the main course. The dessert was mouthwatering along with our after dinner drinks. The...

We were told that we could bring our "catch" from our fishing trip and the waiter was NOT happy about it at all. He had a really poor attitude. They cooked the fish we caught GREAT. It was really good. They broiled some and fried some. Hats off to the chef. The margaritas were terrible. So much so, that I... More

We decided to roll the dice and take a chance since it was only a few minutes walk from our hotel and they had a very fairly priced Surf and Turf platter. - We requested a seat on the patio overlooking the water. This is highly recommended as the view is spectacular and we enjoyed the nice subtle breeze during... More

Wonderful evening at Mocambo, despite the wrath of tropical storm Colin that took away our planned seaside experience. Quote a diverse menu, albeit a bit ratty eared and plastic coated. But many wonderful selections of seafood or meats. The opening round of margaritas set a nice pace for the evening. Attentive service and good overall food quality. While not quite... More
