“We will definitely be back!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

We arrived a little before sunset to enjoy dinner watching the sun go down. We sat on the deck overlooking the beach and water. They had a lot of interesting menu choices. We decided to share the tikinxic. It was our first time and we absolutely loved it! We couldn't eat it all.

We loved the atmosphere and would love to come back during the day for lunch with our toes in the sand.

Our waiter was very attentive. There weren't a lot of other people when we were there. We were actually a bit surprised. But with so many places to watch the sunset in the Playa Norte area perhaps this place is usually pretty quiet in the evenings.

Last word, the bathroom was spotless :-)

“Tik n Xik”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

Me and my family of four were there for lunch and we shared two Tik n Xic. I believe they were 170 pesos each, which I thought it was very affordable since you can share. They were by far the best seafood I had while in Mexico!

“Playa Lancheros - also LaLancha”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Open for lunch and early supper which suited our group of 7 friends just fine. My wife and I shared the whole fish dish and had enough left over for a meal the next day.

We were there at the same time as a two bride Mexican wedding party and enjoyed the wedding photography while the party celebrated.

Our meal with tip was about 170 Pesos each which is a little high but worth it. We did enjoy the sunset over the Cancun hotels.

“best coconut shrimp”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

This place is expensive but we make it a point to go here once everytime we visit. Its worth it for a great meal ans stunning sunset. Time it so you're done eating on the beach by dark or buting bugs will be a problem. Or catch the sunset and move inside for dinner

“Best Tic n Xic on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

Such a great place to hang out with your toes in the sand and have a beer. Be sure to arrive here with an appetite for some great fresh fish grilled with achiote paste, salt and lime juice. Yum!
