Great place for lunch after a visit to see the flamingos. All kind of seafood and you can't miss, whatever you request for.

The restaurant was quiet busy, big parties, and a lot of noise. Our poor waiter had his hands full. Our food came out a bit slow, but was expected due to the many faces. The food was hot when it arrived, the drinks were good, as was the food. We will try it again on a more quiet day. The... More

We stopped here for lunch. It is a casual, tile floored open restaurant looking out at the water. There is a bit of construction going on upstairs so it was loud and dusty. I wasn't sure I wanted to eat here but there really weren't any other choices. I was surprised at how good the grilled camarones were! One of... More

Very nice Restaurant directly at the Mallekon (harbour) in Rio Lagartos. They serve the best fish we had in Yucatan! The prices are ok and the Margarita taste very good. Friendly staff and fast service. We stayed two nights in Lagartos and had breakfast and dinner at Perico Marinero because we liked the food and view of the Ria (lagune)... More

We enjoyed stopping here after our boat tour. The food was very generous portions We ordered the seafood platter for 4. It was so much food it would have easily fed 8. The service was good. Our only issue was the wind was annoying at our table. Small price to pay when escaping the frozen north land.

The place has excellent food and good prices. On my table was...lobster shrimp octopus and stuffed fish. Every bite was deliciously good. Service is super. Patience for food service is easy when flamingos are right out the window. Laid back Yucatan! Relax and enjoy!

Visited after a flamingo tour for a quick bite but it turned out to a full meal. All the dishes were served at once - salad, soup and main dish, however you just can't have high expectations for a local waterfront restaurant like this. Great food is the reason to go!

We ate here at the recommendation of our Hotel Tabasco Rio. The place is pricey for the food. But there are few options in town. We had the following for our first dinner: 1) Mixed ceviche - good 2) Octopus a la mexicana - very tasty 3) Garlic shrimp - okay, shrimp is not cleaned just like in most Mexican... More

We had a great dinner at the Restaurant eating a local fish, guacamole and drinking fresh lemonade. On the terrace we had a great view over the lagoon and the sunset.

We came here on a saturday night and while we weren't expecting much, this was one of the worst dining experiences I've had. There was only one waitress and even though there only seemed to be 4 tables, she was totally overwhelmed. I think it took 30 minutes for her to come see us to order drinks. We eventually ordered...
