We ate there in the evening among the locals. It was awesome, and the atmosphere of the town and its people was really nice. The food was good, but average. If you're hungry....it's great! Very inexpensive.

Have heard & read about Leo's & finally ventured over the Chemuyil to try it. Why haven't we gone there sooner. I had the spaghetti bolagnase, sauce was rich & flavourful. Wife had pizza- great crisp thin crust & plain tomato sauce that allows you to enjoy the flavour of the toppings. Others here have complained about the crust but... More

We saw a lot of great reviews about this place and the kids wanted pizza one night on our trip to Akumal. But we weren't that thrilled. The crust tasted kind of like cardboard. It was definitely not up to the standards of American pizza but fine for a quick family meal.

These folks have been in business for decades. Pizza is their attraction, and it's pretty good. The kids were thrilled! Open-air seating under a roof. Friendly staff.

Also had the shrimp salad, again, wow, the shrimp were grilled to perfection, the lettuce shredded and added a dressing. I wish they delivered to Canada. Very reasonable. Next year, will be a...

This little Chemuyil restaurant came highly recommended by our condo owners. We joined a group of couples that went there for supper one evening & we were pleasantly surprised. Great thin crust pizza with lots of toppings! Not sure how the crust is made but it was so good - so different. Craving a Leo's pizza right about now...........👍 It's... More

On a suggestion from a friend of a friend we ventured out to find Leos which was nestled in the small town of Chemuyil. Arriving shortly after 7pm we were surprised to find cars lining the streets and the resturant packed with what appeared to be tourists and locals. Staff were very friendly and helpful with assisting us with the... More
