“Could not do enough to help”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

I enjoyed a simple tasty meal which I could not finish as I was recovering from a severe throat problem. Luis the manager asked what the problem was and said to order whatever I could eat and they would cook it as I needed. Pleasant location and budget prices.

“Scrumptious meal!”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

It's rare to find a restaurant that combines a welcoming and friendly atmosphere with delicious food AND low prices! Pik Nik does all of that and more. After taking the bus to El Centro from the hotel zone, we tracked this place down after reading previous reviews. We were warmly welcomed by our waiter and by Luis, the owner. They gave us top-notch service and the food was wonderful. Everything is fresh, from the fish to the guacamole, and we did not leave hungry. Afterwards, we strolled in the nearby park and browsed the booths and soaked up the local Friday night energy. We would definitely return to Pik Nik if we come back to Cancun!

“The place for an amazing local food taste!”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

I just went for my first time with my airline co-workers last week and I must say that it is a great place! You can have amazing traditional food and a menu full of variety! And you get enough food for a reasonable price! Es un excelente lugar para probar platos típicos variados en ambiente agradable y con muy buen servicio al cliente :)

“Great fish at a very reasonable price”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

We passed this restaurant and thought it looked authentic and welcoming, and once we looked at the reviews we decided we must try it. We were not disappointed. We all had fish dishes which were deliciously seasoned and perfectly cooked. Combined with friendly service and low priced beer, this was an excellent experience. It is well worth tracking this place down.

“So good!”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

Read all of the reviews and went to see for ourselves! My girlfriend and I shared a tortilla soup and a chicken enchilada along with 4 beer. Chips and salsa to start, and our bill was 195 pesos. Really? Not to mention it was the best authentic Mexican we have experienced!
Will be back for sure. Service was outstanding.
