Very good food and affordable... It has a very nice beach... Love the ceviche and mojo de ajo fish, all very fresh local ingredients... Good service!

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

Our first time in Celestun, we were here for a business meeting and stopped for lunch on our way out of town. The place was recommended by our clients. There were very few people in the place as it was during the week. The menu seemed to be lacking in lunch selections with only breakfast and dinner items. We had... More

My wife and I dined here with dear friends from Merida. My friend Armando called ahead to ensure the freshest and largest Stone Crab claws would be waiting for us. Excellent! The ceviche was fresh, and tasted of the mornings gulf waters. We also enjoyed fried trout roe, a new treat to me. The service was attentive. The setting was... More

For being the top place in trip advisor, I wonder how the other restaurants are.. I had the cebiche, and it was quite average. The service is good for sure. The location is also nice as it's beachside and close to downtown. Pricey for what you get.

We ate with a large group from Belgium in this restaurant on the beach. The food was good (prawn cocktail, fish and dessert), but quite a few. Rather slow service. The advantage however is that we ate outdoors and that we could swim immediately after the lunch.

The restaurant opens up onto the beach, with many tables on the beach itself under a thatched roof. The menu is nearly all fish and seafood, freshly prepared and tasty.
