Description: Its unrivalled location and slightly laid-back atmosphere, refreshing to the senses and inspired by the sea, turns Fred’s into the best spot to enjoy the coolness of the tropical paradise that surrounds this location. At Fred’s, the culinary experience is completed by spectacular sunsets reflected over the Cancun lagoon, a sight that can be enjoyed from the main chamber to the comfortable villas located at the terrace. Fred’s American Seafood & Oyster Bar has a culinary proposal including fish and seafood prepared on the spot and accompanied by one of the most emblematic drinks available at Fred’s: the Mojito, in a range of unexpected varieties and bold flavors. And, to enhance the experience, Fred’s also includes an eclectic variety of wines and liquors. The warmth of its personnel and the courteous service you will receive will be the wheel that guides your ship en-route to an enchanting dining experience.

New Years Eve at Fred´s – an evening with mixed feelings. Location and ambience: excellent, waiters & service level: best you can get – almost too many waiters around you, food: mediocre. We had a four courses menu with scrimp cocktail, lobster bisque, beef and chocolate cake. The portions are really sized – so you better not eat anything the last hours before you arrive. Everyone was stuffed after the second starter and barely touched the rest. Good selection of wine – although fairly pricy. Would recommend the restaurant for the fantastic location and setting. If you’re looking for gourmet food – I would maybe try something else.

Our second time here. Great seafood, ambiance and service. Sitting outside makes you feel like you're eating in a garden setting.

We just arrived at our hotel and decided to walk across the street to check out the 2 restaurants. My 14 year daughter told us Fred's menu looked good so we went. We were seated on the deck overlooking the water. First the waiter presented us with our very first purse hanger stand experience. We were impressed. They they presented us all the seafood they have to offer on a large silver platter. We looked at the menu but everything on it was appetizers. We were a little confused but the waiter commented a grill seafood platter for 2. We ordered that plus 4 appetizers on the menu (tuna tart tart, mussels with white wine, smothering seafood, and crab cake). We thought the appetizers were small but they weren't. We were half full from just eating the appetizers. When the seafood platter came, it sure looked delicious. We had jumbo shrimps (5 stars), Caribbean lobster, scallops and octopus. The dish was fantastic. Lastly, we had apple crisp for dessert. It was out of this world. This place is pricey but if you ask my husband and daughter. They will tell you it is way worth it. The restaurant is just across the street from JW Marriott, a 5 minute walk.

After reading all the good reviews, we decided to check this place out, since is just across street from the Marriott Casa Magna that we r staying at. The restaurant is beautiful, service very good like most of the places in Cancun. The food is just ok. We had wonderful dinners at the Crab House, Puerto Madera, Sasi Tai, Lorrenzillos and we paid half that we paid at Freds. We dont recommended it.

last minute reservation so only had outside on the patio which was nice but inside would have been better, but they were packed which once we started eating, we understood why they are so popular. Everything was delicious except the brownie dessert. Our favorite dish was the bacon wrapped bbq shrimp. The service is great, friendly, not hurried but there if you need them. The warm brioche bread and amuse bouche shrimp soup starts the meal and you know it will be delicious. They push their grilled fish and their grilled fish sampler ($100 for 2), but we didn't get that. Aside from the BBQ shrimp we had the grilled shrimp and the grilled octopus. The octopus was tender but was missing that char that we like. The grilled shrimp had the house "spice' and was delicious. Recommend this restaurant.
