Great local establishment offering seafood and margaritas and wonderful ambience. Dining on the beach with the very attentive staff, Antonio and Carolina, made this the highlight of our vacay! The grilled octopus was superb and the guacamole and margaritas were top notch. Highly recommend this...location if you’re looking to get out of the resort!More

Came with my fiance last weekend and we had a delicious meal. The calamari, ceviche, shrimp tacos and grilled shrimp did not disappoint! The drinks were strong and tasty. The service was excruciatingly slow. Visits from the waiter were few and far between. Had he...come by more often he would have racked the bill up with more drinks and in turn, would have gotten a larger tip. The real failure in service in my opinion was that they didn't warn us that the kitchen was closing. We wanted to order dessert and coffee to finish off the meal but we sat around waiting for 20-30 mins without seeing our waiter. We were enjoying the view and company so it wasn't the biggest deal. Finally I asked a busser if he could get our waiter for us and when he came over he apologized and said the restaurant was closing in 20 mins and the kitchen is already closed. We were shocked. We would give this place another shot though, as the food was cooked very well! Final note: They offered some bug spray which we thought was a nice touch, but I swear that stuff just attracted mosquitoes even more. I counted over 50 mosquito bites on my legs the next morning, it was torture! Bring your own bug spray and make sure it's strong!More

The place is well outside the Hotel zone. However with a rented car or taxi no great distance. Place is very nice and right on the beach. Too bad that smoking is permitted outside the restaurant and the sea breeze can carry it right into...your face thus making the eating experience less nice. Food is ok but nothing to brag about.More

We spent the new year's celebration there. Everything was very nice despite the pandemic. The 7-course meal was delicious and the atmosphere with the live group was really good. The only negative thing for that night was the kids menu. IT was good but not...appropiate for small kids, too fancy for them. Next time make something easier, they are happy with just pasta o hamburgers.More

This place is little far from main tourist areas which may become an inconvenience for some but it is definitely worth the trip! The place is huge compared to several other restaurants in Cancun so you will appreciate the “natural” social distance that prevails between...tables and its customers. The place also has several tables outside by the sand which is even better! Now the food: this is a great place for wood 🪵 fired dishes. The shrimp 🦐 and the octopus 🐙 definitely a delicatessen, a house speciality with great fresh flavor and plenty of food on each dish. The wine 🍷 selection is also very good, with a nice selection of local Mexican brands. If you are up for a side trip away from crowded tourist areas this is definitely a must go place!More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. It’s in very secluded area away from hotels and resorts. Our table was on the beach. The food was a excellent and the proportions were large. I enjoyed the fish filet stuffed with shrimp and lobster. The only down...side was that the staff struggles with English, but we don’t speak Spanish and we are in Mexico! I highly recommend making the trip for a great meal and experience.More

We didn’t expect to find such a beautiful restaurant while we were visiting Cancun! Tucked away from all the craziness - it’s located in the perfect, quiet & secluded place. The food was amazing- I recommend the aguachile or ceviche. The service was amazing, everyone...was extremely attentive to us. The beach was quiet and private. We walked along the dock next to the beach- the water was so warm. Giving this place a huge 5 star! Big thumbs up. Looking forward to visiting again in the future.More

This is a very recommended place to eat Mexican seafood. More y Carolina were our servers and they were the best. This is a traditional seafood place that you can’t afford to miss while in Cancun.

Stopped in for lunch after visiting the local ruin, which is a short walk away. Extensive menu, great service. The four of us all had dishes which were excellent. I strongly recommend a visit to this great local place.
