This restaurant had a great view and it was right on the beach but the food was not so good. We ordered a lobster pasta that was pretty bland and crusty pork belly that was ok. The lobster we ordered was still pretty bland but not compared to the pasta.

The menu was extensive and interesting, so it was an adventure to try out this new place. The food was prepared according to our specifications. The ingredients were fresh, the seasoning was wonderful, and our stomachs were happy! The prices were reasonable and the service was great. Yum!!

We ended up eating here three times over our week in Akumal and each meal was delicious! The beach setting is delightful. Our kids quietly chased hermit crabs at beach below while we enjoyed a cocktail before dinner. Wine selection was good. Would highly recommend fish of the day, lobster ravioli and the beef filet.

My kids ordered chips and salsa and chips and fish, it was a large portion and delish! I had civiche and tostadas that were also superb. My husband went to mexico and ordered ribs :-/ but serves him right, they were cold at the bone and a small portion. Lesson learned! I had flan for dessert and it was tasty.... More

The ambiance of this restaurant is outstanding. Seating is on the beach, the decor is fabulous. Locals retreat here to get away from the crowds. There is a nice bar and the staff are amazing. Love this place.
