This restaurant may be had to find. It is on the water just across the street from the Convention Center. There is a little street that runs down to the water, look hard for the sign among many signs on a post on the main street. Really good food and service. I know you sea food lovers will enjoy this...

My husband and I go to Mocambo's every year. Usually we walk there from Beachscape Kin Ha our first night in Cancun to start our vacation with a perfect meal and a the sound of the ocean. Our favorite is the grilled meal for 2. The seafood and beef are fantastic!

We had a wonderful meal at Mocambo. We were an hour early to our reservation but we were seated regardless. We enjoyed guacamole and shrimp ceviche for our first course. My husband enjoyed a few Bohemia beers and I enjoyed a Basil Martini (with Mezcal ... mmm). For dinner, I ordered the Coconut Seafood -- it was a mix of... More

Mocambo's is awesome. It is a beautiful restaurant sitting on the water. The open air environment is stunning and the services is excellent. We spent two weeks in Cancun and ate at Mocambo's five times. The menu is varied and everything we ate was delicious.

Very good buffet (best option for me). Food is excellent and fresh. Staff is nice. Very nicely located alongside the beach. Negativer aspects is that the restaurant is not so clean, and that at the end, the waiters "force" you to pay a tip of 20% !!! Which makes the end price quite expensive for what it is and leaves...

We stopped here on our way back to the ferry after an afternoon of driving a cart around the island. The staff was pleasant. It's a very clean restaurant. I had the Mayan Fish and it was delicious. My husband had crab and although the seasoning was great, he didn't have the patience to crack them for very little meat.... More
