“Great View/Poor Food”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Ate lunch here and was not impressed at all with the food. Not worth eating here.

Go for the view and drinks only.

“Pit stop!”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

2-4-1 Carlsberg beer..that made me laugh. Go all the way to Mexico for Danish beer! :-)

It was fun returning to Acantilado...beer and shrimp tacos..very fun staff and a gorgeous view.

Perfect pit stop while zipping around in the golf cart.

“Worth a visit just for the view”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

We've only had appetizers and drinks here. The place is in an excellent outdoor location with gorgeous views of Punta Sur and Cancun. Service is friendly and pleasant. Now that El Pueblito has been sold to Americans, this will be our south end hangout.

“The view: Wow. For the view not for the food”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

You have to eat there and keep the magnificent view in your mind for a long long time. The food is ok but, remember, you will be there for the view. Look around not in your plate! Really a great place. Don't miss little shops there, their prices are a lot better than on Hidalgo and around. Outdoor seating only.

“Excellent shrimp tacos!”
Reviewed December 14, 2011

Vist - November 2010...Finally this restaurant has been added to TA! :-)

Excellent food...especially the shrimp tacos 110 pesos.

Gorgeous view!

Very efficient service but not particulary happy or friendly.

Shaded area and non-shaded area to sit.

Very clean bathrooms.

It's a bit pricey compared to other places, but totally worth it imo.

Photos under my "Punta Sur" review. :-)
