We went to shop in the city away from the hotel. Our taxi driver recommended covida del mar. We were beyond pleased. The restaurant is near quinta avenida. I had the special, whole red fish. We shared ceviche. Very very affordable. Service again was amazing....Gracias Pirata!!More
El Pirata is awesome! We have been here several times over the past few years. I decided to celebrate my birthday dinner here with some dear friends from Cancun. It didn't disappoint, delicious as usual . We had the whole fried fish, filet empanizado, camarones...empanizado, and many tequila shots and cervezas. We love their habanero salsa. They knew we were there to celebrate my birthday so they brought out this big Happy Birthday candle with a firework attached, that was pretty fun! Great food and fun with our best friends. We even went back the next day for lunch and ordered our favorite lobster ceviche, yummy!More
We have eaten here several times over the last couple of years. My wife decided to Celebrate her Birthday here for dinner with some Local friends last week. As usual it was Awesome. Many shots of Tequila were involved. We had the whole fried fish,...fiet empizado, camarones empizado, and more. Habanero salsa is great. At the end of our meal they brought her Happy Birthday candles with some sort of firework that was pretty cool! Service is always good! It was so good we went back the next day for lunch!More
Loved this local place. I have eaten here many times and was pleasantly surprised to to see that they are still in business despite all of the new development in Playa. El Pirata has a great fish menu and the prices are very reasonable We...ordered ordered the whole fried Hog fish. It was really, really good and very fresh. If you're a fish lover this is the place to go.More
I went there to take out some ceviche. I ordered 2 plates at 240 pesos each. Their servings are so big, we had enough for 2 dinners. Delicious. Another time I went to buy some fresh fish fillets to cook at home in the oven....Wow! One of my best fish meals ever. I also went to get 40-some shrimps for 140 pesos to ad to a seafood spaghetti sauce. They took long to clean but the flavor was worth every penny of it. You can dine on the spot if you want. And they can also fry your ish on the spot so you can take it home after.More
The ceviche was good but the service was awful. I got a “big” ceviche (2 person portion, I was told) and my friend got a small one, for one person. The only difference was the actual plate they came on, mine being larger, but the...food portion was the same. Then they forgot to add something in the bill, which I told the waiter about, and he was quick to put it on but not even a “thank you”. Then we paid, again no “thank you”, he just took the money and left. Well, FYVM too!More
