Tired family of eight had a lovely meal here with excellent service and very happy family members. Lobster does not taste like Maine lobster, totally different texture and flavor. We enjoyed our meal!

As you enter, you can see the live shellfish they serve in a tank. Right off the bat, let me say I had the chocolate and other clam they had and they were delicious. we sat at a romantic table by the ocean....awesome view. There was a singer taking requests...mostly Frank Sinatra style stuff...very nice. Beautiful decor and perfect ambience.... More

Main waiter forgot drinks and basically didn't come back except to deliver bill. Runners who served us did a good job. Steak undercooked badly and bland. Shrimp on fajitas tasted like microwaved, no flavor at all. Very pricey and bill for four people included an 18% tip. Waiter said it was for wait staff. Didn't want to tip him at... More

We only nipped in for a couple of drinks but did notice restaurant was full. We both had a Coco drink - Cocktail in a coconut- Make sure when visiting you get one they are very refreshing. The views from here are very good which makes it a ideal place for a meal.

It is a very nice restaurant for fresh local seafood. Friendly staffs, could be pushy sometimes, but you just have to decide for yourself, take server's words for the advices only. The whole fresh fish is good value, if it is too big, you could ask for 2 different ways to prepare(we had half steamed and the other half grilled).... More

Looking for a great Unpretentious Water Front Restaurant with good food, good vibes, and a great mix of locals and tourists, stop by Mocambo's. Had a great time, eating a really good buffet style meal and the drinks were super reasonable. Can't go wrong if you looking for a decent meal at decent prices.

We visited here one night and had a great meal. We had lobsters which were lovely and fresh and also the steaks were very good. Our favourite was the oysters. Lovely and fresh. It's on the beach so you get some great views as the sunsets. RECOMMENDED!

Very nice spot, however it is in a low-key area so you may have to ask how to get there. I had the best jumbo shrimp stuffed with crab meat ever. 6 shrimp filled me up surprising and the view is beautiful if the sun is out. You must go here if you're in Cancun for dinner or lunch and... More

This is a very good, predominantly fish, restaurant. There is plenty of choice on starters and main courses. All the shellfish are top notch and the portions are big so some dishes can be shared. They also give you tacos and nibbles before you start. We had a mixed shellfish civiche to share as a starter and it was delicious... More
