Owners are great, but the food is just ok, and ok is a stretch. We had empenadas, soup, and shrimp cocktail. It was all lacking seasoning. Maybe we just ordered the wrong things.

When travelling in Akumal, the greatest attraction is the tropical beach where diving and snorkeling is very popular. But after being in or by the ocean for hours stepping into a little pub called Tequilaville was a wonderful place to unwind for me. It is a short stretch up the main road less than a mile from the beach, easy to find. The husband/wife that operated to place are Canadians that transplanted themselves to Akumal on the Mayan Riviera. They were very personable and seemed to be living a relaxed lifestyle that could have been their dream since their youth in the1960s. As the warm breeze flowed through the place, I enjoyed cold beers, corn chips with some excellent salsa, and a plate of fresh veggies and fruit. It was a very pleasant visit and not at all pricey. It may not be the swankiest place in town but for me the memory of my visit at Tequilaville was a definite thumbs up.

Nice owners. Being able to call the grandparents was a nice surprise. Good size portions. Not sure I'd visit more than once per trip.

We just ate here because of the reviews and we were very happy we did. We definitely enjoyed the great customer service from Ken and Mary, and the food was very tasty. The coconut shrimp was totally awesome. I have never seen coconut shrimp so big - you definitely get your money's worth! We had some tasty tacos and sandwiches, and the portions were big enough that we had a whole other meal left over for one of us. I would definitely recommend you swing by this place for a bite if you are in Akumal. It's on the right hand side just as you enter Akumal Pueblo (just after the bridge if you are coming from Akumal Playa).

Shrimp fajitas lacked traditional seasoning, sort of bland. The cocoanut shrimp were huge, but the sauce was too sweet. I would recommend the tempura shrimp instead. A lively place that has huge potential if fine tuned in the right direction. A beginning would be to grill the shrimp for the fajitas for a grilled look and taste, and the addition of seasoning that one expects for fajitas. The place is good, but could be a lot better!
