We were looking for seefood, and we have heard about these place several times during our week in Tulum. Of course, as seafood and fish lover I am, we tried it. We ordered lobster and shrimps. They were good(specially the shrimps; the lobster was good, but not superb). Good place, full of local people, but that on average is more expensive in comparison to the rest of the restaurants in the area. But it seems it is the only place to try local fresh seafood and fish at a reasonable price. B y the way, the waiter was nice with us.

The plates were well served, the food was fresh and delicious! Nothing expensive! We paid $970.00 for 6 dishes! Nothing bad considering we were in an expensive area (Peninsula de Yucatan).. Ask for 1 dish at time cuz are very bigs!

Everyone suggests this place for good fresh food. We have had multiple hotels suggest it. Every time we get ceviche which is delicious. This visit we ordered the grande portion which is plenty enough for four really hungry eaters, and really quite a steal compared to device at upscale places on the beach. So go on, give it a try.

We asked locals at the ruins for a seafood recommendation, and weren't let down. We had grilled and coconut shrimp, simple but some of the best I've had. The restaurant was busy, but service was great. Flan also good.

We asked our hotelier for the best seafood in town - he directed us to this place. This is where local folks go when they want great seafood at great prices.

We had a very good time... stayed longer than we usually do because there was so much local "life" going on. The place was busy and somewhat crowded, but that just meant it was easy to meet some other travelers and swap stories.

This was one of our best experiences in the Yucatan this trip. Highly recommend you give it a try!
