This restaurant is a gem out of the Hotel Zone! We were there for the first time in April with friends and then again May 1st. just the two of us! Arrive early for a late lunch or early supper! It is very busy with local families, couples and friends! I believe we may have been the only couple who's Spanish is very limited! But we made out fine with ordering. Have their local drink Michelada, we had their platter of fish, whole or fillet of Snapper and 2 kinds of shrimp, meaning you get to pick the seasoning, Garlic butter, Cream, or very hot Diablo! I almost do not want to tell to many tourists about this place, this restaurant's business is booming without the tourists! Locals love it! And we did too! First time there we we took the R2 bus and then got off and took a $3.00 taxi, this time we took the R2 N. Heroes which took us within 100 ft of the restaurant. It is not a gourmet restaurant but if you want to truly feel a part of Mexico it is worth the exciting visit! Live Music, Food, Drinks so much energy it is overflowing! Remember to bring your pesos, cash only. Best time to go is before 4 PM, as it closes around 7.

Basic seafood, to far away for such simple menu., it is a long way to go for a fish dish.
They were out of soup, but told us 15 minutes later.

Two weeks ago returned with Mexican friends who live here in Cancun! It was their first visit to Va Q Va. I enjoyed the experience once again. The place was packed and people were still entering the restaurant. Honestly, I think it is for visitors who have rented a car. As a long time resident here in Cancuni would find it hard to give directions by public transportation. One could once downtown via the R-1 or R-2 Bus take a taxi which would cost about $30-Pesos for the ride. Va Q Va is not a fancy place. It looked like 95% of folks dining there lived in the area. I think as the restaurant got more and more popular the owner purchased another house or lot. It is not like dining at the Ritz-Carlton. The first time there I order a plate of shrimps with coca sause. I liked it very much. It cost like $90 -Pesos and was a large plate and very good. This time 4 of us order the buffet plate which is the size of a cooking tray with 3 kinds of shrimp(your coice) and 2 broiled fish. It came with a large order of cold slaw. The entire buffet dish was $260-Pesos. For more info write to me happyboy99ok@yahoo.com or check my website:www.charliedrewcancun.com
