I really liked the enviroment.
Drinks were fantastic, had the BEST manhattan we've ever had in our lives!! It's usually not that good, waitress was fantastic very patient with us, we didn't know what we wanted to have at first and she adviced us a lot, was super patient, we couldn't decide and everything came in perfectly, perfect timing, perfect place to be with family. Next year we will come back for sure!! Send our regards to our waitress ROCIO

We come here every trip to Cancun. Service is always excellent and food is up there with some of the best. We sat outside with the view of the lagoon and warmer temperature. We're greeted by the floor manager who is the nicest guy and welcomes you to "his office" and tells you to let him know if there's anything at all that you need. He seats us and we're met by Stalin our waiter. We get the surf and turf with ribeye to split. It comes with octopus, lobster, shrimp, crab leg, 2 sides and plenty for 2 people. We would've been able to feed 3 or 4 I think. The pureed potatoes were impossible to stop eating, but the asparagus left more to be desired. Food was great, crab and shrimp were the favorites and the ribeye was ok, but we were getting full and the other food was too good. We also got the apple pizzetta for our dessert, but were tempted by the many choices that are shown to us on a video with an iPad that's brought out after our meal. Hard to pass up those when you see the video of them! The apple pizzetta is so wonderful because it's not too rich, the apple slices are thin and the caramel and ice cream are so creamy. I also haven't seen it before, but they have a kids club we went to check out for when we decide to bring our little ones to Mexico. It's babysitting for when you eat and it had tons of activities and they explained that it was only open weekends during their slow season now, but more often when it's busier. Such a great idea!

It's a shame the food wasn't on par with the restaurant location, staff & great cocktails Fred's house offers! We ordered the catch of the day, a juicy grouper, which was poorly grilled (too charred on the meat side, and soggy on the skin side) and had to pay extra for some side veggies & rice ($8-$10 per side supplement)... Our dinner cost $150 USD for 2 fish & 2 sides & 2 cocktails... quite expensive for what we ordered given that the fish was really poorly grilled. Luckily our cocktails were top notch, their equivalent version of the moscow mule was amazing! In the end though, we had much better fish elsewhere and for much less money... Your experience may vary from ours depending on what you order... But skip the fish or just get 1 fish per table... they are big and we couldn't finish 1 fish let alone 2 of them... because the skin was too soggy and the meat part of the fish too cooked.

On vacation in Cancun we kept passing Fred's House and thought on our last night to take a chance on a seafood meal. I'm glad we did!!!
From the minute we parked, we were greeted as if we were at a friend's home. Smiles and a precision warm welcome was our first impression. We entered a large expansive room very beautifully appointed with interesting visual decor, a large bar and off to the side an enclosed outside dining terrace overlooking the lagoon. The chef immediately sent out a delicious complimentary hors d'oeuvre after we ordered. We decided to try the tableside Caesar Salad with Grilled Shrimp and I'm glad we did! EXCELLENT! My friend had a Seafood Paella and I had Fish and Chips. Again, EXCELLENT! I'm sorry that we waited to go on our last night in Cancun because honestly, we would have gone back again. Great job "Freds!"
