What we had was average. Very Americanized. Bar was ok, beer was pricey at 50pesos. Vodka was expensive at 95pesos each. Easy location.

Went for dinner yesterday, Thanksgiving. Food was great but the waiter was a total loser. He did not want to be there and apparently doesn't like his job. If not for him, I'd give this 5 stars.

I am so sorry about your waiter! We are investigating because we want all our waiters to show exemplary service, and a love for their job. That has always been our goal. We cannot have anyone on our team that does not show up to work with enthusiasm and does not have customer service skills. This will be taken up... More

We returned here for our Thanksgiving meal. It is extremely well prepared, and a delight to relax and eat our holiday meal on the beach. There is live music for the Thanksgiving celebration. The staff is welcoming and helpful.

This is a blended rating from the 4 adults and 2 kids in our group. We voted mostly 5s and the margaritas put it over the top... definitely the most potent in Akumal so far!

Seriously...I cannot stress enough how wonderful the bacon wrapped shrimp is! My husband ordered a pizza (lobster or crab I can't remember because all I think about is the bacon wrapped shrimp) and said it was wonderful. I've had their fajitas and tacos on previous trips, before I discovered their bacon wrapped shrimp.

Have been dining here for years with family - this time solo. Really like the relaxed atmosphere on the beach with an excellent meal. Restaurant or more casual beach bar both have the same food ! Try it !

This restaurant is beautifully located right on Akumal beach- so the view is great.The menu is wide and everything we had in 4 visits was excellent ( included mix seafood ceviche, burgers, burrito, tacos, bacon shrimp), service is great and prices reasonable. It's a shame that it's only open during the day!

This restaurant is blessed with the best location on Akumal Bay. The views are outstanding so they don't have to try very hard and will always be busy with day trippers to snorkel. Saying that, meals may be average and the prices are a lot higher than other options not on Akumal Bay ... just around the corner.

This firm has two restaurants next to each other. One is laid back with a full beach bar menu from snacks to full dinners. The food is well prepared, good quantity and reasonable priced. They also run a more upscale restaurant next door that has a pricier and more sophisticated dinner menu. It is not open for lunch but is... More

We had high hopes given the current rating for this restaurant, and were very disappointed in our meal. The restaurant was not busy, and we were able to sit very close to the water. That was the best part of our experience. The margaritas were terrible! The lowest quality tequila was used and they tasted like gasoline. The ceviche was... More
