After flying into Cancun from Mexico City, we hopped in our car to drive down to Tulum, half way there we realized we were starving! Thanks to tripadvisor we searched "fish tacos" and after scoping a few locations settled on Los Aquachiles. Thank goodness we stumbled upon this gem. After two weeks in Tulum, we concluded that these were the... More

I have been a couple time over there and is good option if you want to enjoy good seafood. To be honest some times is so busy and you need to wait for a table, but it worth.

We enjoyed a great and very cheap meal here - the tacos were wonderfully fresh and delicious - and we were surrounded by locals as the restaurant is off the tourist route- definitely worth the long walk from our hotel!

To start with, I'm not a person that usually enjoys eating fish unless it's sushi, but this restaurant has got me coming back for more. Their fish and shrimp tacos are not only amazing, they're also cheap (for Playa del Carmen) costing only 29,5 pesos per taco! Can't stop eating their guacamole, heavenly.

Highly recommend getting off of 5th Ave and coming to this restaurant. The best tacos I had in Mexico (Smoky Tuna and Fish) and the ceviche was super fresh and great tasting.

I am seriously obsessed with Los Aguachiles! During our two month stay in Playa we probably visited here at least once a week and tried a variety of the different items on the menu and I can honestly say we never encountered anything we didn't enjoy. My favorite was the aguachiles with the avocado which included spiralized cucumber, ceviche style... More

Went here with a group of people was told to order two tacos and that would be plenty. We received the meals and to say we were disappointed would be an understatement. The meals were small and had very little taste to them. We were still hungry at the end of the meal. Would never go here again.

I came here for lunch and was overawed by the menu. So many great seafood and fish options. I settled on a trio of tacos and was delighted by how good the food was.
