Excellent location, right in town on the beach. The scallops carpaccio, one of the house specialties, was a delight. However the shrimp in mojo de ajo was very, and I mean very, heavy on the butter which took a little away from the meal.

We ate here twice in our two visits to Celestun. The restaurant is typical seafood comida Mexican style...simple, tasty, unpretentious. There is seating directly on the sand next to the beach. Service is quick and friendly. Really loved the place. I ate the breaded conch steak, the quesadillas, the breaded shrimp, and the guacamole. All delicious and reasonably priced. Loved... More

We had had a rough day with a horrible AirBnB experience and Los Pampanos really lifted our spirits. The stone crab claws, conch carpaccio, fried octopus and empanadas were all absolutely delicious. Wine was also surprisingly good for a casual beach restaurant. Friendly staff who were also speedier than one might expect in such a laid back environment. We enjoyed... More

Nicely remodeled entrance and interior but the food quality seemed inferior from when we ate hear several times a couple of years ago. Weak margaritas, overcooked fish a la plancha. One of our group liked the octopus, however.

Open until 6:30 pm. We were very happy we came here. Located directly at the beach. We were told this is one of the few seafood restaurands taking care of some hygenic standards. The lobster was great. Prepare for some mosquitos though.

The food is very good and not expensive, they don't take too long to serve as other places. Its in a very nice beach so you eat with a nice breeze.

A couple of people had told us that this was the best restaurant in Celestun for fish and seafood. It looked nice and was quite busy. We sat on the beach under the palapa style roof, quite comfortable out of the sun. The menu is extensive, with seafood served in several different styles. Some things we tried were very good,...

Great Oceanside location, you can go for a swim, walk the beach or simply sit and enjoy the ocean breeze while you wait for your food. The service was good, the waiter was polite and prompt. Sadly the food was not much to look at. It tasted ok but definitely not anything to rave about.

After the tour to the mangroves of Celestun, we ended up having lunch at Los Pampanos. There is the upper area of the restaurant with concrete floors and a lower one where you are literally on the beach with a high ceilinged palm thatched roof. The beach has white sand sprinkled with small shells. The plated food at this restaurant... More
