Despite being baby back rib night (which two of family ordered), I ordered the hamburger. It was the best burger inside or outside of Mexico.

Always COLD beer. "Ribs on Wednesday" is worth the drive over to the pueblo. Free telephone, large screen tv, great and attentive owners. You deserve to stop on your vaca at least once.

Just spent three wonderful weeks in Akumal and confirmed Tequilaville is still the number one restaurant in that area. We ate there five times including a great Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings, including cherry pie. Food quality and price is the best as is the company of Ken, Mary Gilberto, and the new girl Graciela. The other great thing... More

The fajitas were good, though the beef was tough. The coconut shrimp was so good and the size of the shrimp was huge, the boys called... More

Wow, this restaurant offers the very best Akumal has to offer. Make the short walk over the overpass to the pueblo and find Tequilaville. The best coconut shrimp I have ever eaten. Ken & Mary are friendly and welcoming in every way. Put this delicious place on your "must visit" list.

This is ranked the number one restaurant in Akumal so we thought we would give it a try. It is located in the pueblo accross the road but we were happy to go off the beaten track for a recommeded restaurant. We found a very basic place with cheap plastic chairs. Not a problem - we were still quite hopeful... More

We ate at Tequilaville at least 6 times during our 9 day stay in Akumal and it was perfect every time. The food was very good and the service was even better. The prices there were very inexpensive given the great quality of their products. We also tried several of the tourist restaurants and over all were really disappointed. You... More

In Akumal Pueblo (the other side of the main road) on the hill going up the first block past the bridge. The food here was very good. Best fish we had all week -- both the veracruz and the chipotle sauce styles. Best salsa/pico de gallo we saw all week too. The hosts were very nice as well. They even... More
