We have tried to eat here for 3 years and finally got here when it was open. 6 of us were hoping to enjoy the best fish on the island. There were only 2 waiters on duty which wasn't fair to them. We didn't know the fish took 45 minutes to cook. Our friends ordered tacos and fajitas which had... More

We stopped in here for lunch to try the Tik'n'Xic fish as recommended on my Mapchick Map. We didn't realize it took 1 hour to prepare (at least that's what they told us). We didn't want to wait that long so we had fajitas, shrimp tacos and stiff margaritas instead. It was just ok. The service was slow and there... More

We stopped here looking for a beach to go to, so that we did not have to drive to Playa Norte everyday from the south end of the island. We would have been willing to drink and eat at Playa Lancheros just to use their beach. However the beaches along this stretch of the island are just sad!!! No wave... More

We had heard this was one of the best beaches on the island...we disagree...not much area to swim or get beach chairs that was public....lots of tour boats bringing guests for lunch and activities at the pier/resorts there. Drinks from the bar were good (get them yourself) and we ordered chips/salsa/guac and shrimp cocktail to go and they were delicious... More

3 years ago we (family group of 6 or 7) stopped by here for lunch and had a lovely time, sitting under a palapa next to the beach, sipping drinks in the breeze. Had the signature Tik N'Chik, which was delicious. This year, when we walked in the music was unbearably loud, but we found a table out on the... More

By far this location on Isla Mujeras has THE best traditional Tick'nXic fish anywhere. Beautiful view on the sand; with amazing food.

We pulled into this place on a whim while blasting around on our golf cart. It was a great little beach lunch spot. We ordered a seafood platter, which was amazing! The drink special of the day was Coco Locos with fresh coconuts that were cracked on the spot. It was stiff!! It took around 30 minutes for the food... More

Not sure how to spell or say, but try it. Came just for this Mayan dish and it was worth it. We shared and did not seem to make a dent. Big parking lot for your golf cart

This was our first stop on our return trip to Isla. There's just something about eating Tik n Chick style fish right on the beach that officially kicks off a vacation. Brought a healthy appetite after our flights and getting settled in at Casitas del Mar. Plenty of parking for golf carts ... and lots of locals dining, which is... More
