This is not a place that you want to go to as there are thousands of places that are better and that would include every other place in PCC - I would suggest you go to Karen just 2 mins along 5th ave. Staff friendly and food reasonably good. The icing on the cake for me was. When the waiter... More

We stopped in for a drink and got treated to 2-for-1 daiquiris and margaritas, as well as fresh tortilla chips with 3 types of toppings. The waiter made a fresh guacamole right at our table that was honestly the best I have ever tasted! Highly recommended!

We went tonight for a meal the food was great and the service we believed excellent. That is until the bill arrived. Normally after a meal the bill arrives with shots this time we are charged 650 peso. On top of this we are told we have included the tip after finally getting a very blurred bill which we cannot...

The food was delicious, the service impeccable, the value for the food was great. We ordered their seafood parrillara and it was enough for myself and my husband. It was awesome. The desert we order was the Dulce de leche crepes and they were amazing. They make them table side from scratch. The whole experience was amazing and was very... More

Tamarind shrimp was by far the most delicious prepared shrimp I ever had. It had a unique taste, that my taste buds never witnessed. BBQ Teriyaki chicken with teriyaki sauce multiplied by 10 is the only thing i can come close to comparing it too. Great view, great service, just don't know why their cadillac margaritas tasted a lot stronger... More

We had 2 waters and each... More

I stumbled upon this place walking 5th Ave. The amount of food given for the meal for two was incredible. Just take a look at the pic. When I travel to Mexico all i drink is Cadillac Margaritas. With that said they are not cheap but Los Rancheros were very strong. I like strong when they run 10 + american... More

Excellent Mexican food with ultra-friendly staff you make you feel welcome from the get-go. The Aztec soup was creamy and came with sides of avocado, nachos and cheese. Red snapper was simply seasoned and was of course accompanied by the obligatory lime. Not the cheapest place, but well worth a visit.

We took the ferry from Cozumel to Playa and just walked around. We picked Los Rancheros because it had the choice of patio or air conditioned seating. We were very pleased with the food and service!! I had the cream of lobster soup on the recommendation of our waiter. I was a red sauce and excellent and I am a... More
