This little spot has great seafood. You can even watch them bring the fresh lobsters out of the water. The presentation is amazing. Gotta try the FISH TACO'S!

There are plenty of fresh fish eateries on Avenida Ruida Medina in El Centro, but which ones do it up right? Picu's is one of the best! Conch (caracol in Spanish) isn't as easy to find on Isla as it once was but it's well worth seeking out and Picu's does it right. Think of a paperback novel sized thin... More

My wife and I have a tradition now. We go to the same restaurant the first night on Isla Mujeres, Picus Cockteleria. It has a great view for sunset and the best and freshest seafood on the island. A great value for the price and you get to actually eat on the beach with your feet in the sand.

We ate at Picus a couple of times on this trip, and the food was better than we remembered. We had the mixed (fish & shrimp) ceviches, quacamole and filets fixed a couple of different ways. The food was fresh, prepared and served well, and there was always more than enough. The servers were friendly and helpful, so we enjoyed... More

We heard so many great things about Picus, and couldn't wait to try it, our friends took us and we loved it! We got there early and got to know the owner he was so friendly and made us feel like at home. Fresh grilled octopus and ceviche. It's nice to have a nice meal right on the beach with... More

The servers know little English but, enough to understand your order. I wouldn't recommend individualizing anything, just order straight from the menu!!

Friday evening around 8pm and every table but one is empty. This should have been my sign to skip this place and normally I would, but based on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews we decided to give it a fair shot. We sit down to our table and wait. And wait. And wait some more. All the while while... More

This place doesn't look like much but the food is amazing and good prices. Beer is the cheapest we have found in centro. The service is friendly with lots of staff. Bathrooms are very clean and in great repair.
