This large restaurant is reminiscent of many Mexican restaurant in the USA. It is loud and boisterous with Mariachi strolling musicians. Great place for a big group and good for family dining. They serve a wide variety of seafood, fish and meat dishes. The food is about what you would expect from a similar place in San Antonio. It's good... More

Very vibrant place! Eat like a local! Good food with occasional live Spanish music performance! Don't seat too close to the kitchen if you don't want to walk away smelling like a giant steak 😁😁 My favorite so far is the carribean sea food platter in the charcoal grill section! Very friendly staff too!

I visited La Parilla recently whilst on Holiday in Cancun. You can get a flavour if this place from the other reviews too and I guess this place isn't for everyone. A live Mariachi band circles the restaurant playing loud and happy music. Photographers will create photo opportunities with Sombreros that is the vibe here. The portion sizes are immense... More

Lively place plenty of staff. Very noisy with a mariachi band which is both charming and a little frustrating. Food was pretty uninteresting. Didn't taste fresh and wasn't presented well but was perfectly edible. It was also more expensive than it seemed to deserve.

Great food, Great cocktail, and Great Staff! I did enjoy a hot, lazy afternoon here before hotel check in. The cocktails are awesome and not to mention how they serve that. (interesting) The assorted grill is cool and you may taste various of food at one time. I really enjoy the lunch here!

In the heart of downtown Cancun, we always schedule to go to the Sunday buffet so we can enjoy a huge array of excellent food and a festive atmosphere. Service is always attentive and friendly and the customers are always a mix of tourists and locals. Cocinitas pibil, carne asada, and a delicious selection of sopas always make this restaurant...

Were meeting with friends for the afternoon and this restaurant was recommended to us by staff at Columbian Emeralds. Spent about 4 hours here, 3 of us had the mixed tacos and one the coconut shrimp, good sized portions which none of us could finish. Had a good numbers of beers and then moved onto margaritas and tequila sunrises, which... More
