The Pescadillas was my favorite! Deep fried fish tacos just add some table salsa and you are in for scrumptiousness. I recommend the red snapper as well and the shrimp cocktail. Authentic Mexican seafood and very inexpensive. A very unique space to enjoy cold Coronas,...delicious seafood and the sunset. Will definitely visit again on our next visit to Cancun.More

For around a buck a piece, you can procure hot, crispy and fresh fish tacos from this hidden gem. Whole fish is fried and prepared for $380 per kilo along with tortillas, onions, tomatoes, salsa and lime. The garlic and fried shrimp are both quite...tasty too. You have a great view of the lagoon and can watch the sunset over the water. The pico de gallo is fantastic and can be procured for around a buck fifty. We came here twice and the only thing my children did not like were the plantains, which were good, but not sweet as they had predicted. The plantains would have been fantastic with condensed milk but were served with crema. If you can find the restaurant, you should come and try it out!More

Best Fish Tacos and Ceviche around, all while dining right on the Lagoon! A must stop in Cancun. Located right across from GR Caribe by Royal Solaris

A local told us to eat here (12-29-19). My daughter and I ordered the shrimp (Ceviches), the fried fish plate, shrimp & octopus cocktail mixture, and plenty of bottled water. The place had a dirt floor with a thatched roof. It sat right on the...water. The Ladies were making the tortillas by hand over a wood fired grill/stone. Everything was fresh and made right there. Even though the place appeared to be rugged, it was clean and fresh! The staff was all rushing around with sincere kindness for their patrons. It was a perfect start to our first week exploring the Yucatán Peninsula. I would recommend you visit this place at least once while in Cancun. Look for the yellow-painted wood stumps out front. Parking is limited so if you are close, just walk! It is a beautiful walk! MOST SincerelyMore

When you first see it you can’t realize what an amazing experience it is. We tried cheviche, fish tacos (pescadilos), fried fish, guacamole and michelada. Everything was amazing. One of the best places to eat and you can’t beat the authentic experience.

We went out of way to come here and just seeing the open kitchen was worth the trip. The fish taco was deep fried and served plain. It was different but great to try. I especially loved the fresh shrimp in garlic sauce. Just note...the garlic sauce is sour tangy not savory garlicky. Try the grilled bananas! A lady cut huge sweet bananas off a vine and grilled them on open fire! The kitchen and seeing the operation was the highlight here. Go down a wooden staircase to get here. Locals know where it's at of your lost on the sidewalk. PROS: Open kitchen Grilled bananas Garlic shrimp Garlic fish CONS: could be hard to find Weather permittingMore

Become a local here... sitting by the lagoon, humble as corn, surrounded by locals... it's the real deal. Pescadillas are just excelent and the ceviche is delicious too. Everything is basic but don't be misled as the food is so humbly good. A great winter...lunch in a place off the beaten track which only locals in the know can tell you about. Hidden gem...More

Safer to drink beer out of a bottle. Or soda or bottled water.
