“Great food and lots of it.”
Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

Ate here tonight--had the fish tacos and cheese burrito. Food was excellent, and there was so much we took some home. Jimmy Riconeo provided us with excellent service. Two for one beers and giant strawberry margaritas!

“Nice alternative to the Cancun Chains, great host, family atmosphere...”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

We always like to get out and try some of the local resturants, that serve local fare, and the SeaHorse was a great place to stop by. So good we went back for a second time. As other reviewers have stated the owner/host is a great guy, and would greet us and our kids everyday whether or nto we were going there. He makes a point to make your dining experience enjoyable. Not a fancy place, but nice to sit outside and take in the open air. Its refreshing to actually go to a restaurant where they actually thank you for going there.. and appreciate your business!

“A Great Joint with a Great Host”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Is it the fanciest? Nope. The best food? Probably not. Are the drinks all that different than you'll find elsewhere? Doubt it.

But if you're like us, you'll keep coming back to the Seahorse once you find it. It's just a great joint, with character for days. It makes me smile just thinking about this place, and I'm not really that kind of guy.

Ricardo knows the art of hospitality, of making new faces feel like old friends, and his generous, honest spirit just charmed us from the start. It reminded us how much travel is about human connections, even in a tourist haven like Cancún. One of our very favorite travel experiences.

BTW, and if you like good tequila, Ricardo will make that happen. He might even bring some sangrita to your table, which makes you a very lucky person. Man, that stuff was good.

“GREAT SERVICE!!!! RICARDO IS THE BEST”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Spent an afternoon across the street from our hotel at the Seahorse. The guacamole and fish tacos were some of the best I ever had. Ricardo made us feel at home and took care of everything we needed. We are still in Cancun and sure we will go back. This place is a great getaway from the "all inclusive" programs. Great selection of beers. Enjoyed the bottle of Don Julio he left at our table. No worries, just fun!

Thanks Ricardo

“FUN FUN FUN”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

We visited The Seahorse a couple of times. We had a really good time. Ricardo made some great margaritas. He added amaretto to them. A new twist on an old favorite. We watched the last game of the world Series there and had a ball! Our dinner was quite good. 2 of my friends ordered the dinner for 2. The plate was filled with Mexican favorites. They declared the chorizo the best they have ever had. Ricardo entertained us with magic tricks and his enthusiasm is contagious. They show NFL which was good for the guys! FUN! Give it a try! You won't be sorry!
