Our family really enjoyed the omelets. We had the choice of fillings and sides. The staff was kind and quickly served us coffee and refills. My daughter enjoyed the salmon bagel, as well. The covered restaurant is nice in the heat and we had a view of the waterfalls in the dolphin enclosure.

Our family really liked this restaurant. Food is very good, margaritas taste of pure lime, tequila, and agave syrup. We ate here several times during our 9 day stay over Christmas. The table-side prepared shrimp is the best, our teens liked the ribs and steaks, and our vegan child was very happy with the veggie burgers. Overall, our favorite restaurant... More

We went here for dinner one evening. Great food and wonderful atmosphere. Owner greeted us and Alex the bar tender was very friendly. They had a fun Foosball table for the kids to play. Loved the table side salad and shrimp that was prepared. We had 13 in our party, food came out quickly and was delicious!

The food is nothing to write home about. The menu is a little confusing as they tried to do American food with an Italian Mexican mix. But the drinks are cheap and the snack foods are delicious. Would go watch another game there anytime.

Just had a wonderful brunch here....eggs benny with smoked salmon and mamosas, It was all excellent as usual. Always great food and atmosphere!

Thank you to the folks at Hippos for being so accommodating and friendly. On a recent trip to Mexico, I found myself at a resort that did not have "the big game" on TV. Hippos had every channel imaginable and quickly gave me full reign of a remote control. I did not eat but the food looked and smelled amazing.... More

We had margaritas and nachos and they were good. Our friend that was with us knows the owner. The owner is quite a character. Nice cozy spot for our lunch. Big TV's usually airing Soccer.

This was the only place we could find open on the marina for breakfast on a Monday, so we took a chance. Although one in our group of 9 enjoyed her eggs benedict, the rest of us were underwhelmed. The french toast was soggy and disgusting. The egg scrambles were not well received either. No mexican breakfast options were offered.... More

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.
