Felipe May greeting us with open arms and make a joke about reservations. He gave us many suggestions about the the dishes about we want eat. The complimentary chips and salsa, hot sauces made very welcomed. The portion were huge and flavorful. After dinner he...brought a couple of shot to wish a good night.More

Unassuming cafe that looks and feels like a beach dive but just off the Kukulcan drag. The owner Felipe is proud of his food served and he should be--the solid selection of seafood is modestly priced and fresh. I chose the Sopa Supremo that featured...fish, shell ok prawns, squid, octopus, lobster and stone crab claws. The flavor of the broth--the heart of the soup, was complex and clean. Like he gathered the drippings from steaming or blanching all the seafood. But the seafood tasted like it have been hanging out the the heat of the soup a touch too long. If the proteins had been shocked in an ice bath they would be firmer. Nevertheless, the casual delivery matched with bodacious flavor was enough to satisfy for lunch. Complimentary basket of tortilla chips with salsa habanero, salsa guacamole and pics de Gallo rounded off the meal. Rock on! Felipe--represent!More

My boyfriend and I discovered this place today and had a great lunch and also much fun with Felipe! I ordered shrimp burritos and my bf had shrimp fajitas, perfectly grilled. Both were delicious! The margarita was not a fancy concoction but it was perhaps...one of the best margaritas I have ever tasted. Perfect blend of tequila, triple sec and fresh lime juice. The tequila shot at the end of the meal was a little extra treat. We will definitely go back before we leave Cancun.More

We have been here four times now. The first time was four years ago, and we ended up going back twice. When we sat dow this time, I sad to Fillipe, "We have been here..." and he finished my sentence: "Four times." None of us...could figure out how he knew that, but he did. This is just a little hole in the wall, with tables on a small patio. we love the vibe and the food. The Margaritas are also good. Do your self a favor and have dinner here one night!More

Felipe is the owner and he is great! His margaritas are so good, the best i’ve ever had! he gave us each a free tequila shot which tasted very smooth. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but the best places usually don’t. he...only has outside seating but the weather was nice so it didn’t matter. I got the fish quesadilla and my boyfriend got the chicken quesadilla. They were both so good! i would definitely recommend both. the menu was huge and it was nice to have so many options. Felipe also speaks great English (not that it really matters, but it was convenient since he could joke with us). He also gives the table three salsa bowls which were all delicious and i’m not usually the biggest fan of salsa. i’m glad we came here earlier in our trip so that we can go again! and if anything a trip to this place is worth it just to meet FELIPE!More

Found this great little place our last week. Went 3 times. Owned and run by Filipe and his son. This place is truly a hidden gem. Freshest seafood, cooked to perfection. Great margs. Filipe treats you like one of the family. We go to Cancún...every year and Calypsos will be our go to restaurantMore

My family had a great dinner here. Very casual, outdoor seating. Great food and the owner, Felipe, was a lot of fun. It’s kind of hard to find though. Not very visible from Main Street. We found a place to park and had to ask.
