This beach restaurant is a place to grab several beers, and maybe some chips and guacamole... I wouldn't chance the chicken due to limited refrigeration, however... the fish is freshly prepared, and is something that they are known for...

Coming from Tiburon spending more than anticipated to get our picture with the Sharks, we were hungry and only had 320 pesos. For the equivalent of $22.00 USD (including tip) we got Lancheros fish special for 2, and a beer. This was 3 huge pieces of delicious fish with cooked tomatoes, rice, coleslaw we didn't touch, and a mountain of... More

We shared an order of Tikinxik which was plenty for both of us and delicious. I don't eat coleslaw but my spouse did and developed food poisoning the same evening. This place likely did not pay enough attention to refrigeration. The washroom facility was very dirty & the swimming area was loaded with seaweed the day we were there. It's... More

On our golf cart quest for a beach at which to spend some time, we landed at Playa Lancheros. Thought we might try the local Tikin-Xic, too, but the beach was primary. We walked through the restaurant and found it to be appealing, but walking out to the beach we saw that it was not. It had been rainy and... More

We can't go here without ordering the Tikin-Xic. It is good, but really not any better than the fish you get at the cocktelerias. The highlight of Playa Lancheros is the experience. You have to wait a while for them to prepare your fish, so you have time to just relax, walk out on the pier or just people watch.

We have been to Isla Mujeres 5 times and the Tikin-Xic at Playa Lancheros to us is a must. As others said, it does take a little long to get your order, but you are getting a whole fish, you have beers, a beach and a nurse shark you can play with to keep you entertained. It is definitely worth... More

We stopped for lunch while touring the Island with our rented golf cart. We enjoyed cold beers with chips, pico and guac. We dined on coconut shrimp and fish tacos. Out Of This World good!! Got my hair braided on the beach to boot! Will return!!

This is a fun place to sit and watch the tourist pile off of the catamarans. It is also a nice view to enjoy while sipping on a cold cerveza or paloma. We tried the fried calamari which was amazing! Great batter and very fresh. We also tried the Mayan fish Tik n Xix. The flavor was good but the... More
