One of the loveliest places to be during sunset. Annette the owner, always has a nice wine selection. Calamari is always one of my favorites. The staff is attentive and friendly. Really a romantic quiet spot on the beach.

Great service. Delicious food. I had an orange cocunut salmon that was awesome. Interesting drinks. Beautiful location right on the water. Drinks and dinner for two was about $40 US. Highly recommend

This restaurant was highly recommended by many people as "the spot" to go for a romantic beachside dinner. We went for the Happy Hour which runs daily from 3:00 - 5:00. Unfortunately this was in October, so we were the only ones there, so not a fair chance to review the atmosphere. The margarita's were awesome though!

We had lunch here as part of Your Private Tour. The ceviche was fantastic as were the tostadas and the enchiladas. The guac was some of the best I had the whole time I was in Mexico. Excellent service as one course went seamlessly into the next. Delicious margaritas. :) Table right on the beach. Beautiful.

My wife and I visited basically to have lobster. Mexican lobster cooked Puerto Nuevo style. Very reasonable priced with a selection of wines available. Set on the beach with indoor seating .This is by far the best restaurant in Akumal and the best service and food.

We stayed at Hacienda de la Tortuga, right above this restaurant, and despite having a lovely kitchenette and balcony were regularly tempted downstairs to enjoy a drink, snack, or meal at La Lunita - all the dishes were great, and it was wonderful to sit right on the beach, often bathed in moonlight by night. The beach in this part... More

We have been to this restaurant before and it was just as good this time around. I had the lobster ravioli-delish! Husband had grilled fish. Very good too! Go here if you can.

We stayed at Hacienda de la Tortuga. La Lunita was in the same building. So it was very convenient for us. We ate here several times. My favorite dish was the tuna chalupas.
