We have eaten here before but the food and service was great. as usual. My wife had the coconut shrimp and she loved it. I had the tuna and it was also great. The staff all wore masks and they left a lot of space...between tables.More

The food is great and the service is wonderful. We felt very safe there during these COVID times. In addition to dining outdoors on the sand, they also deliver to local resorts before 5pm. Quick and efficient.

This place is a nice little gem very cute on the harbor. Looks like a little stand but behind there is a cute little restaurant. Honestly we haven’t had great food anywhere which has been surprising. Everywhere has great great ceviche and this place is...one of them. The octopus was the best we’ve had and the soupy rice was nice. The bacon wrapped shrimp was a pass, way too much sauce and just covered in like American cheese. Definitely would be cute during the day for lunch. Solid choice!More

El fish fritanga was PHENOMENAL! AMAZING Pescadillas and DELICIOUS Black Tostaditas! Incredible food with a terrific open seating area and VERY AFFORDABLE PRICES! Awesome service and a MUST visit when in Cancun!

I dined here twice during my stay in Cancun in December 2020. I enjoyed the food during my previous stays so I figured I’d put this place in my “to-go-to list of places”. The food has been pretty much the same although the quality has...been an extreme of low and good e.g. “Pescado Frito” MXN 400+ - seasoned well and cooked to perfection (crispy on the outside but tender on the inside); “Pulpo Ele” - under marinated, rubbery texture and burnt tentacles that tasted like char; “Langosta” - overcooked and overpriced, charged over MXN 800+ for a lobster that seemed about under 300 grams. Service was still good but a word of advice to would be diners, if you are thinking of ordering a “price-per-gram” item from the menu, ask the server to bring out the item to you before cooking and ask for the price (as with everything in Mexico) before ordering, as this place has started gouging their customers especially with the “price-per-gram” menu items. It’s highly likely that your going to be overcharged for these items. Would I recommend this dive? Yes, certainly, but only for the experience. But I would certainly not repeat dining here again since there are a lot better options in Cancun.More

We only had one day in the hotel zone and had watched the Triple D episode featuring El Fish Fritanga before our trip to Cancun, so we were so excited to try it! However, it was underwhelming. The margarita we ordered tasted of bad alcohol....We ordered a few appetizers and mains and all of the fried fish was soggy. Also, every dish was covered in the same creamy sauce. The setting of the restaurant is nice, outdoors and set on the beach. Maybe we caught them on an off day, but the food was just really not good.More

Frozen margaritas were great. We asked for a table near the bay and the docked boats. Love the white sand, palm trees and Palapas! We got an awesome tasting shrimp ceviche appetizer, fiesta shrimp dinner and their salmon and it was all OUTSTANDING! Will definitely...return for awesome food, killer atmosphere and top notch service at great prices as well. One of our favorite Cancun hideaway restaurants just south of La Isla. Entrance is on the right side of Circle K store with steps going down to the beach level. This one is a MUST!More

My husband and I ate here after reading the reviews. What a lovely surprise! The food was delicious. My husband had the shrimp steak with mushroom gravy. He loved it. I had the stuffed fish. It was okay, but not stuffed with shrimp like I...was hoping. We also had the pescadores as an appetizer. They were good. The prices are good. The view is of the lagoon and marina. We had an obstructed view due to a mangrove tree, but the ambience was nice, like being on the beach. We'll definitely be coming back again.More

Great place on the lagoon that serves up fresh seafood. We had the fried whole grouper and it was spot on. I also had the octopus carpaccio and chocolate clams. Simple and fresh as most seafood should be. Plus, the price point was much better...than some of the other recommended restaurants in the same category (i.e. Fred's). Excellent attention from the entire service crew.More
