Description: Wonderful Palapa Restaurant since 1982 with a pebble floor, mayan sculptures, waterfalls, hammocks, exotic birds, a peaceful garden with a fantastic jungle setting. Excellent Seafood, Authentic Mexican and Yucatecan Cuisine. World Famous "Lalo's Special", a dish made with fresh shrimp, lobster, calmer, fish and chicken fajitas is Superb. The ceviche made of fresh fish, shrimp, lobster, octopuss and lemon is also exceptional. The most relaxing place to laze in a hammock after a delicious feast.

“Good food and friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

The food was good and portions generous. The staff was happy to help us split an order and provided friendly, helpful service to us and others we observed. Our experience in the Yucatan with wine has been mediocre and this was no exception. However, there is a great variety of mixed drinks and beers and next time we'll try those. The ambience is pleasant and relaxing although I miss the old location on the beach. This is a place I will look forward to visiting again. It also strikes me as a great place to go with kids.

“Excellent Food and Atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

We spent seven days in Akumal and ate at the restaurant four days straight. There was a variety on the menu, everything we ate was very tasty, and the presentation was wonderful. Lalita, the two year old spider monkey, was indeed full of energy and always brightened our day. The landscaping was very pleasant for a relaxing atmosphere. We would highly recommend stopping to enjoy a meal or two.

“Great food”

We enjoyed our lunch here very much. Food was delicious. The atmosphere is very nice and who can be upset with a cute little rescue spider monkey running around? We will be back during our next trip.

This is a great place to eat as well as fun atmosphere. Worth taking a trip to this restaurant. We try to go there every time we are in the Akumal, Tulum area.

“Great lunch during the tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Stopped by here during the Riviera Adventours excursion. Restaurant is owned by the same owners of Riviera Adventours. Food is delicious and watch out for Lalita - the cute misbehaving monkey running around with a diaper! Would go here if you are by Tulum and need a great lunch spot!
