Apparently Flamingo's is a long-standing institution among locals. I had the "pescado al mojo de ajo" (fish cooked with garlic) and it was nothing special. Prices are really good though, and you get some snacks while you wait for your food. I speak fluent Spanish, but I didn't get a word of what the waiter was saying, not a single... More

Just reopened today and breakfast was terrible! It was closed and fined for dirty kitchen by inspectors the fried grouper was burnt as was the toast at breakfast as well as weak coffee. Prices are reasonable and staff know more English than most places

We have eaten several times at this spot and liked the food and service every time. They bring tasty botanas when you order drinks and the food is good and reasonable.

If you are planing to come with many people expect to wait to be seated, because the food in this place is so good that nobody complain for the waiting time, at the beginning the service wasn't too good everybody were in a rush but is understandable with the crowd in this place, German was our waiter and at the...

We made a reservation for New Year's Eve dinner and had high expectation but the whole night was a dissappointment. Normally in other places the starters were very good but here not. 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.
