My husband and I came here a few times during our stay in Cancun, primarily due to the location and because the staff was so kind.

The food itself isn't memorable: stay away from the Mixed Grill! We did however, like the simple items like the fish and shrimp tacos, their bean soup, and the chips and salsa.

The staff was super high energy and very kind. We appreciated each server that we had, and they all remembered and greeted us each time we returned.

I'd likely return if ever vacationing in the area again.

The restaurant boasts that the movie "Cocktail" filmed on location. I wonder if Tom Cruise and Michael Caine kicked back for a cocktail?

Probably not ... the food was decent, but not memorable. We went a couple times. The fish and shrimp tacos were good. The grilled platter for two people was mediocre or worse. The service was friendly overall. The atmosphere was okay, although the outside seating gives you a view of heavy traffic and crumbling buildings.

We stayed at the 5-star Fiesta Americana which is a very nice hotel with mediocre and very expensive restaurants. So we walked down to the shopping area and thankfully, we found a very good Mexican restaurant which is outside of the noise and riff-raff at the shopping center - or whatever that is - with Bongo Congo, screeching "music" and drunken craziness. Mextreme is off to the side next to the yellow "Mexican Outlet". We had 2 breakfasts and a lunch there. In the evening they have some pleasant Mexican music and it's a place where you can actually feel like you're in Mexico, instead of Las Vegas. The service was very friendly and efficient and the margaritas were exceptional.
