Hippo has a great Taco Bar on our second patio with all the toppings you can imagine. Fresh daily fish and lobster sold by the gram. Hand carved American Black Angus steaks cut to size.We have large screen TV's for sports events but keep the volume low so others can enjoy the ambiance. Free fresh popcorn and terrific cocktails and ice cold draft/bottled beers make Hippo a gem in Puerto Aventuras for all to enjoy.

“Best Burger in Mexico”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

If you are staying in the area and are tired of the same old resort food, go to Hippos! Great homemade burger. Good fries, and real ketchup. I'm from Alberta and a bit spoiled as we have the best beef in the world and it was as close to home as you will get.

“Great Place To Snack And Watch The Game”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

We stopped by here several times during our two week visit -- for breakfast, lunch and drinks and appies. Service is excellent and drinks are very good if a little pricey. The breakfast was nothing spectacular, but lunch and appies were very good. We kept coming back mainly for the entertainment value as it is in a great location and they have big screen tv's all over the place with a huge selection of sports. For even more fun, show up later and watch the owner drink too much.

“Keepin' it hip at Hippos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

The best steak I've ever eaten in Mexico! Other food is good, too. A friendly staff and classy place. If there is something you want, but don't see on the menu…ask them, they are very accomodating! I've eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner here…all good. Comfy couches on the patio allow you to watch your favorite sport team in action while sipping a cold drink and nibbling on great food.

“great blackened fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

We dined at Hippos twice the same week because the food was so good the first time!! Blackened grouper first, balckened wahu second. Came with fresh vegetables and potatoe or salad. Great price too. The wine was very good and well priced. Loved being able to watch the Leafs play in Mexico. I would recommend this restaurant for dinner.
