“Great Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

We took a trip out to eat at Bubba Gump's, the food was amazing and the staff were great. Service was really fast and they helped with recommendations. However when we asked the waiter if the portions were big (to decide to have a starter) he said no. The main course portions are pretty big and we only shared a starter, which we really didnt need as we were struggling to finish our mains. There were a few entertainment guys that come around your table, a balloon maker clown and a magician....these guys were good but it kind of interupted our eating. Overall a lovely mean which was fairly expensive but it was a birthday/anniversary treat!

“Great for families”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

We came here for my daughters birthday and she loved it. They had a clown doing balloon animals at the table. Overall it was a great dinner and away from the typical drunk atmosphere that you can get other Cancun restaurants.
- fun atmosphere
- clown for kids doing balloon animals and hats
- if you tell them you have a birthday, they do a whole song with your child being wheeled into the kitchen and everyone cheering
- food was good and came out quickly
- staff was great and very attentive

- it's a chain so yes, you could have it in the US, but still fun atmosphere
-on the pricey side, dinners were about 20usd and appetizers were 10usd. Kids meals were about 5usd, but its a resort area and nothing is going to be cheap

Overall we had a great time and my daughter enjoyed her birthday experience.

The restaurant was pretty Americanized. As the restaurant name indicates, most of the dish were shrimp. If you like shrimp, you may like here.
