We checked trip advisor for restaurants that were within walking distance of our hotel (Oasis Palm) in Cancun. The first one up was The Pirates Tavern - it was literally a hop, skip and jump away. My gal pal and I decided to check it out one night.
We walked over and it could be the smallest restaurant/bar I've ever seen. There was a bar and 8 tables, all outside. 3 of the tables are under their own little tiki huts...it was adorable. There were only 4 other people there which made wonder why if it had such great reviews on trip advisor.
We went up to the bartender (the only person working) and asked for our drinks. From here it got amazing. He was the NICEST man. Huge smile, very inviting, amazing chuckle. Every time he left our table my friend and I would turn to each other and say "I LOOOVE HIM".
The drinks were awesome, the food was amazing! We had chips and some of the best guacamole I have tasted. Fish tacos to die for and fish and chips...equally delicious! He came over and brought us home-made mango sauce - you have to get this! He told us some stories and made us laugh.
He constantly checked on our table to make sure we had everything we needed but never interrupted our conversation.
I am so happy we decided to check this little wonder out. It is right on the ocean and you have a wonderfully refreshing breeze.
We went back 3 nights in a row. He remembered us right away. I will be back to this little gem the next time I am in cancun! Thank you Pirates Tavern for a few wonderful evenings.
