Super expensive, horrible food. We were at Maguey bay on a boat food. Shrimp cocktails are the worse ever. Shrimp plates have only 6 smallish pieces. Service is often overwhelmed by the boat tours and hence really bad. I will not come back ever.

I found the food to be very authentic, and tasty. However for the portions you receive their prices are ridiculous. I paid 140 pesos for chicken tacos, but there was hardly anything on the plate. Like I said, pay close attention to your bill. My...More

We sat here because they had a deal with the tour we were on that we could sit here and not buy anything, but we still bought a Limonada, just to sip between dips in the beautiful bay. It took about 30 mins before we...More

We came to Maguey Bay and got "hijacked" by the guys at the top of the hill to "come to your restaurant". We got to sit in their chairs all day for the price of a few beers, although their beers were 30 pesos compared...More
