One of my favorite little restaurants in the entire Cancun area. Delicious local cuisine; always fresh and a good representation of Mexican seafood. If you’re interested in the best margarita... they have an excellent bartender, casual atmosphere and great price.

This was a winner for the four of us, so much so that we went back twice. The view and location are worth the price in themselves - especially if you head for the top deck. But with them comes Mexican and seafood to delight....More

Everything was reasonable. Lobsters were not in season. We had a beautiful lunch and plenty of 2/1 drinks and our bill for both including tip was less than $50.

Its about 5 kilometers taking the shortest route by road, which kind of winds along the ocean. Taxis are pretty cheap and its in the heart of the city. Its worth the trip into town to see everything and eat local.
