Perfect The food and service was very good, the place is perfect because you are seating in the sea "literally", they have massage service that was amazing and everything in your budget, was no expensive in all. I'll be back

We walked along the beachfront and talked to several places for a massage but came back to Kimbara and Angel is fantastic. Best massage ever! After we enjoyed a margarita and some food and Ivan was an excellent waiter. Good place to stop.

When we got to Costa Maya we took the trolley thing to Mahahual. Kimbara is the first restaurant/beach area. We were planning on walking along beach to find an area. This was $40 for 7 people. Compared to booking it through the cruiseline at $70...More

A full day diving with their neighbors (Buceando Mahahual) we almost always find ourselves resting during the surface interval with a plate of ceviche and afterwards with a few cold brews. Great staff, fast and friendly service at a very reasonable price. Normally closes after...More
