Pasta, amazing! Server, perfect! The only thing Quo Onda lacks is an ocean view and it's very reasonable$$. We'll be back!

This is the kind of place you want to keep all to yourself but can't! The past was excellent, the service impeccable and the location so funky...kind of a 60's retro style under the palms. We had delicious food served expertly and had a great time at this restaurant. If you are going to be in Half Moon Bay, it's... More

Over the years this place has been hit or miss. We tried Que Onda on our first night in Akumal. The service was great and had some good drinks. The food was average, could have been much better if they would have used more seasoning on the pasta. Will give them one more try next year.

This smaller restaurant near yalku is a nice change , great selection of pastas and other foods, layback and quieter than Buana Vida or those in Akumal, We ordered four different pastas and all were excellent. Only negative is does not take credit cards.

Been in Akumal for 2 weeks, have tried almost all restaurants and this one is my favorite. Best freshest salad, clean, and great food. Quiet and romantic.

If you would like to change things up from your typical Mexican menu, go to Que Onda and eat some delicious Italian food! Italian is not the only thing on the menu but it's what our party had and it was yummy! Get the bruschetta you won't be sorry - so fresh!

Que Onda is a bit off the beaten path at the North end of North Akumal. We always walk (from Half Moon Bay); it is a short drive. The food was very good - good Ceasar, excellent pasta. As indicated by others, the service was mediocre - not problematic but not especially attentive or friendly despite only one other table... More

In a residential neighborhood in Half Moon Bay, it is great to see this restaurant still around. Food was very good, reasonably priced, and the service was excellent. One word of warning: they do not take credit cards, so make sure you have cash (pesos is better!)

We decided to eat early and walk to the restaurant from our accommodations at Hacienda de la Tortuga. We had lasagna and fettuccine alfredo. Washed it down with Pacifico cerveza And walked in a coma back to the condo. the wait staff was gracious and we will definitely go back! Their flan was amazing! Don't pass up a chance to... More
