The food is always consistent at this restaurant! Cold draft on tap and great daily specials. The staff never change which is a good sign! Prices are good and so is the service! Great place to watch football or hockey!

Recently we had a nice lunch at Hippos. The afternoon drinks were a good value and the bean and beef nachos hit the spot. Hippos is a great sport for dolphin watching in the afternoon.

BEST ceviche I've ever eaten. Fresh and so so good. Please try it. It's to die for! And very inexpensive for such a quality meal. I'm dreaming of it and wonder if I will ever find any remotely close to this taste. Probably not!

Lovely breakfast, lunch, dinner and special event restaurant overlooking the dolphins which are less than 15 feet away. Hippo has a great Taco Bar on our second patio with all the toppings you can imagine. Fresh daily fish and lobster sold by the gram. Hand carved American Black Angus steaks cut to size.We have large screen TV's for sports events but keep the volume low so others can enjoy the ambiance. Free fresh popcorn and terrific cocktails and ice cold draft/bottled beers make Hippo a gem in Puerto Aventuras for all to enjoy.
