Had a great meal here. Try the ceviche, and order the size carefully as the portions are large. Wonderful grilled fish too. This is a fairly large spot that gets busy. Worth a wait. Inexpensive and delicious. We'll return, for sure.

Delicious, inexpensive and quick service despite being busy. We enjoyed the fried whole snapper and ceviche and were more than pleased. Ate here 10 years ago and it's still as good as we remembered. Service was prompt and efficient. I would highly recommend.

On weekends people cue to get a table here. I love the mixed ceviche and also the mayan style fish which they steam in a palm leaf. Servings are really big and for a good price. The staff is very friendly!

Stopped here for dinner on the way back to Akumal. We had a seafood soup and a fried fish filet. Both were great!

Perfect place for fish and ceviche, they served tasty "frijoles" (fried beans) with "totopos" (corn chip) that you can enjoyed while you are waiting for your plate. Prices are good.

We ordered the jumbo ceviche for our family of six (three of those are teenage boys) and couldn't finish it! It was huge, fresh, and delicious! What a value! The tacos and guacamole were awesome!

We went here for lunch, had a traditional yucatecan fish dish (made in a banana leaf-which added to the taste considerably) plus some ceviches and beers. The total tab was very affordable but more importantly the food was better than several other places frequented by...More
