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.

“Best Meal in Cancun”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

We went here on our 10th Wedding Anniversary and it was our trips saving grace! The prices were extremely reasonable. The drinks were amazing. Best Lemon Drop in the world. I loved my grills octopus. The staff and the service is one of the best. I will never stay at an all inclusive again in Cancun. This restaurant service, price, and quality of food has convinced me that it is a waste of money to stay at Oasis Sens in Cancun. Next time I go to Cancun, I will stay at the Ritz Carlton and eat here at least 4 meals out of the week.

We also went at the last minute and the hostess was able to seat us. The decor is amazing nautical themed. The waiters and servers are trained to serve even the most important dignitaries.

Not a single detail was missed when it came to having a wonder customer experience. Thank you Fred's for a beautiful evening to celebrate my 10 year wedding anniversary.

“Great atmosphere- make a reservation!”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Great atmosphere, but make a reservation to get one of the private bungalow tables along the lagoon. Salads are large, so share if you are getting a main meal and great tortillas with dipping sauce comes first. Delish!!!!

“Great seafood excellent service ”
Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

This place has a great grilled octopus and many seafood dishes . the service was very good and the views were great. The main downside is that it is so overpriced , while this may become the norm in a place like Cancun I still think it is not worth 5 stars.
