Overpriced, outdated menu, nice location in North Akumal. We had drinks, appetizers, and walked down the beach to La Buena Vida for dinner. I have nothing to recommend other than avoid this place. It's not terrible, however there are many better choices.

We were taken here by our tour guide. The food was very good, lots of seafood and very good salads. Would recommend.

Went there for lunch at 1 o'clock in the afternoon and had tacos on the beach. The sirloin tacos were very very good. My boys had shrimp tacos that they really like also. They have a happy hour from 3 to 5 everyday with two-for-one drinks. They made it very good pina colada.

Return to La Lunita because it was so good. We have made at least 6 trips to Akumal and La Lunita is one of our favorite restaurants. Small, quiet and located on Half Moon Bay it is a great place to have lunch or dinner. Schedule dinner so that you can see the sunset, watch the waves hit the shore... More

As we had read on some posts, La Lunita is expensive for a restaurant that has nothing special. The setting is nice on the beach but the food is just ok, for a higher price that some other restaurants on the same beach.

Lunch at this restaurant was part of our tour package with Your Private Tour and we enjoyed it thoroughly. I had the fish ceviche (and also tried my husband's shrimp ceviche with coconut milk). Both were great appetizers, very flavorful and fresh. My 10-year old son and I had the lamb burger for our entree. It came with delicious, crispy... More

We were on our way to Yal-ku lagoon and stopped at this restaurant for lunch. The food was comparatively expensive and wasn't that great. I guess it pays for the beautiful view of Akumal beach. Eat there if you have to... See pics for menu and scenery

Nice place if you are looking for a low key location for a meal on a quiet stretch of beach. I had the squid taco which was interesting but good. The best thing I tried was the burger, which was loaded with flavor. The chef does a lot with the space he has to work with. I am sure the... More

By far the best restaurant in Akumal. It is perfect for a romantic candel lite dinner on the beach. Food is incredible!!
