“Romantic Dinner”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

La Lunita is a nice little romantic restaurant. Good food. On the beach. (It can get a little windy and chilly at night.) It's tucked away behind some condos, so if you blink, you'll miss it.

“Here's how you avoid the previously documented pitfalls at La Lunita:”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

OK. Now to get the best La Lunita experience, go for lunch! We were served graciously today with only 2 other tables occupied- ordered chicken enchiladas with house mole sauce and cerviche. Marvelous with no pressure, gentle Carribean breeze, and 2 margueritas before lunch. Can you beat that? Especially since it's 7 degrees F in Minneapolis and we are glowing with sunshine! There's no happy hour anyway, so save that time for Buena Vida! Pics included.

“La Lunita Declining?”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We've dined at La Lunita often over the past 15 years. Our January visit was disappointing. The food was fine, but not memorable as in the past. The service and scenery were still tops in Akumal, however.

A little more up market but a fine selection of seafood. We had margaritas, beers, lemonades, fillet mignonette, calamari, spicy mussels, Caesar salad and seafood paella. Delicious! Total cost: $111.00. I have had better margaritas - a little too much salt in the bottom of the glass. The staff were not overly friendly but nevertheless were very courteous. We sat with our feet in the sand and ate by candle light with crashing waves as a musical background. The food was great the ambience lovely. We had a great night!

“Nice food but...”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Great food but in order to get a table you need to stalk the people currently sitting there trying to enjoy their meal. Uncomfortable to say the least. The waiters suggest for you to just stand close and when a table gets up to sit down quickly! what about just having a line and taking turns????
