Lovely location on the beach. Excellent sea food! I ordered the octopus and absolutely loved it. The guacamole is also very good

“Typical local seafood restaurant, on the beach”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We went twice to this restaurant in May 2013.
Good simple fresh food (we had fish), nothing sophisticated. Service is minimal, but we don't speak Spanish, and quite fast. Acceptable value for money.
You are directly on the beach of this very laid-back, unpretentious fishing village. Great sunset, but it can get quite windy in the evening.

“Fresh seafood”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Basic restaurant that serves very fresh fish and seafood. Good, accommodating service. Eating right on the beach was a very nice experience, particularly after enjoying our boat tour of the mangroves and the flamingos. To find the restaurant, park at the town's main plaza, walk straight to the beach, and turn right. You'll see the restaurant's sign after walking approximately 50 yards past other beach restaurants.

“Tasty seafood while your feet are in the sand”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

The menu is quite diverse at this little establishment. I wanted to try various items such as the conch, breaded octopus, etc. However, I settled on a lighter meal of a sautéed fish fillet in mojo al ajo (garlic sauce). Very well prepared and not overcooked. It came with steamed veggies and very tasty rice.

The prices are reasonable.

My only suggestion would be to offer botanas as appetizers like many restaurants do in other beach towns in this area of Mexico.

“Best crab ever!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Fantastic place right on the beach. If you are looking for fresh crab, lobster, shrim cevice, fish, it's the best place in Celestun. Nice wine, very reasonable prices. Looking forward to come back next February :o)
