At first we did not understand they we the starters, they were more like clock stopper.They did not ask what we want to eat as a main course... More

This restaurant was recommended by another restaurant that had to close earlier than expected. Food was generally excellent including salsa, guacamole, and grilled shrimp. Mixed drinks were a bit weak. One of our group didn't get a meal until well after others were served. So, overall, food quality was good. Price was reasonable. Service was sketchy at best. Don't let... More

Ordered shrimp ceviche, sopa de Lima. Shrimp was chewy ( not fresh or something and were not deveined)... soup was ok- didn't taste like lime. Drinks were decently strong. Bathrooms were decent. Service was ok. No english

I went to this restaurant for breakfast and the food was good, the service was friendly, and the view of the beach was beautiful. The next time I'm in Progreso I will definitely eat there again.

This Progreso institution deserves its reputation as a good place to eat. My husband and I were the only ex-pats in the restaurant on a Sunday afternoon—it was filled with Mexicans. We shared the ceviche and the poc chuc. Both were excellent, but the ceviche was divine! We ordered two desserts: the platanos Flamingo and plantains with cream. Both good.... More

We headed out to progreso on a hot day after visiting ruins around Merida for a couple of days. We wanted a relaxing day on a beach and flamingo's breakfast was such a perfect start. Right on the beach this restaurant is very nice and spacious with great service and fantastic food.

We popped in here for a drink based on a recommendation in the lonely planet guide. It is in a good spot next to the malecon however the service was not good enough. When we sat down we weren't sure if we were just getting a drink or a snack also. After reading the menu we decided that there was... More

This is by far the best Restaurant I found in Progreso. Besides the affordable prices the meals are delicious and the atmosphere relaxed with awesome music and the beautiful view of the Malecon

Great meal. Tried queso cheese, guacamole, sevichi and grilled shrimp. Everything was delicious. We were here early, so no crowd. Beautiful setting, nice breeze coming off the ocean.

Thank LJ K
