We have been three times to this restaurant in two separate trips. We love the fun atmosphere there. The mariachis are great! The guacamole made at the table is delicious and a must try. Beautiful views, day or night.

We visited on our last night in Cancun, and enjoyed a fantastic meal. The service was great, and we loved the Mariachis. The setting on the lagoon is delightful.

Fantastic, authentic Mexican food. The fried cheese with salsa verde is to die for. Have also had the chicken mole which was awesome. Margaritas, of course, are perfect. We go every time we visit Cancun! Great view of the sunset and the service is impeccable!
