This place is the best spot in chetumal for sea food. Their ceviche is superb. They sell nice sea food as well, like fried fish. Live entertainment and a really clean and nice atmosphere. It's right downtown near the old market and museum too

This place is a must! You will not be disappointed! We decided on this restaurant because of how many locals were eating here and thankfully that hunch was right! The seafood & meat paella was the best we've ever had! The ceviche is clearly very popular and after seeing so many people ordering we wanted to try it too. It... More

Conveniently located near the market. ate here twice in one week.Complimentary seafood soup is amazing. Portions are very very large. Twelve large coconut shrimp in one order with amazing mango salsa. Shrimp ceviches and cocktails are huge. A medium order can easily split between two people for an entree. Guacamole is great and portion is very large, sides of rice... More

We found this sweet restaurant by accident looking for the #1 trip advisor eatery in Chetumal. Very quaint clean setting where the corn tortillas are handmade by a little lady who sits by the entrance. I had shrimp in a mango salsa with rice that was very tasty. My wife loved her plate of Beef tacos and sumptuous beef burrito.... More

If you want a mound of delicious shrimp ceviche, this is the place. Right behind the main market. Very clean, very yummy. I highly recommend this place.

I ate here several times and consistently, the food was very good! When you are seated, they offer you a complementary bowl of soup and fresh chips and salsa. They have a vast array of beverages to choose from; including a full bar. I had a whole fish on one occasion and a seafood stuffed Pablano pepper another time; both... More

This Mexican seafood restaurant is the real deal. A medium order of Paella was about $11.00 and came loaded with crab, shrimp, pork, chorizo, chicken, bacon, and octopus plus veggies. I thought it was enough for two people. My husband had fresh snapper, also around $11.00 for the plate, and it was huge. Entertainment can be a little loud (understatement!)... More

We came for a light dinner and left totally full. The shrimp ceviche was the best we have ever tasted anywhere in the world. Complimentary fish soup is to die for. Worth the long walk from our hotel tonight!

OK - so I really really really want to give this place five stars. Our first visit, it would have received 6, but the second was a 2. So I'm settling on a 4, just because, well, it's a neat place. The little statue of the viejocitas (the little old ones...) as you enter is so sweet. We visited first... More
