Every time I'm in Cancun I make it a point to eat at El Cejas. Had the shrimp cocktail for lunch and was not disappointed, going back tonight for conch.

The food is good and authentic, it's not very expensive, we paid around 35$ for two people but we ate a lot and the food was really good. The place is really authentic, what you come here for kind :)

Great food with amazing atmosphere. Very cheap and not touristy as other places. If you're looking to experience local Mexican seafood, this is the place to be.

We visited this place twice in one week. The seafood was really fresh and delicious. The price was much better than the hotel zone. I wish I could have those oysters everyday!

Actually I've been just wondering if they are going to have the (Hog Fish ) this year, We will be in Cancun in 24-June-2017 thru 08-July-2017. My husband really loves this eatery. WE always come here at least twice during our stay. Our favorite servers are Pedro, Andras, and one other. Thanks El Cejas I believe the fish is called Bonqinet??
