“Cute place right off the main strip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

Cute little place off the main strip with exceptionally friendly staff. Food was very good and drinks were cheap. My only complaint is that things were not as clean as they probably could have been.

“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

My girlfriend and I were looking for a place to have some great Mexican food that didn't cost an arm & leg like most hotel zone restaurants. This was exactly what we had in mind. As soon as we walked in we were greated by FILIPE...the best host in Cancun. The drinks were great... ($5) for a pina colada or margarita!!! I had the fajitas, like a true gringo, and they were fantastic. Walking distance to shopping and clubs. Thanks to Filipe and the young bartender for a job well done.

Great food and atmosphere, Mexican cuisine in its best. Especially the seafood was great. Shrimp tacos are must! The owners hospitality is amazing and generous.

“This place is WONDERFUL!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

I went to this place last year with my husband and we loved it, but didn't write a review (Sorry Felipe). A few days ago, I took my mom, uncle, and sister to Cancun and this was the first place I told them about. They went on Wednesday and I got to go with them again on Saturday (2 days ago). Felipe and the staff are super friendly, the food is delicious, and everything is really well priced. This is my number one place for authentic Mexican food at a great price. Most importantly, Felipe makes you feel like you are a long lost relative and is ALWAYS so happy to see long time and new customers. I hope to see you next year Felipe!!! :-)
