“Nice location, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

This pretty restaurant is located at the lagoon and has a "pet", it is a giant living crocodile! The food (crabs) is quite good and not expensive.

“Decent place to eat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Over all a very nice restaurant! Food was wonderful, a bit pricey. Wine sellection was fairly good. Our waiter was great and very attentive. Sax player was a nice touch. Dinner on the patio overlooking the lagoon was great, and if you got chilly the offered small blankets to guests.

“Nice view from back deck...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

We had the crab claws... they were pretty good. Pretty limited selection on menu. The deck has a nice view of the lagoon and they had a sax player (nice touch). Overall, nice time, pretty good food, pretty expensive.

“One of our favorites, if not THE favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Food is excellent, but not cheap. The staff is friendly and helpful. Nice location and view as well. If you are going to venture off of your "all inclusive", this is definitely a good choice!!

“Fantastic food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Went there with a large group. I ordered the filet mignon/lobster meal for 750 pesos - very expensive but it was SO worth it! The food was amazing and the lobster tail was big. The only downside is the waiter. He barely spoke English and didn't understand us very well at all. When you have a restaurant in the Cancun hotel zone which is largely Americanized, English is almost a must to communicate with the tourists. Overall tho, the food was amazing and the restaurant was beautifully decorated.
