Fabulous little out of the way spot with beach furniture, covered palapa style tables next to the water - on the bay side. As the name suggests .. fish is the BOMB. Very hard to find .. but well worth the trouble. We eat here everytime we are in Cancun.

We were grateful for the reviews that said the entrance was hard to spot under the pizza store. This place has wonderful fish dishes at great prices. The octopus in garlic cream sauce was amazing. They even made off menu veggie fajitas for a vegetarian in the group. Not to be missed!

We went to this restaurant on our first night in Cancun based on a recommendation from Judith at the Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort & Spa. From the street level, you can't see how cute this place is. You have to go down some steps to reach the seating area. It is on the water near a boardwalk and boats. It... More

Last night we decided to come to this restaurant since it's known by locals but located in the touristy Hotel Zone. The restaurant is located on the lagoon side and has a white sand floor and every table has a "palapa" umbrella over it, on water's edge....great ambiance for friends and couples... I ordered the Tuna Tostadas which were quite... More

This resturant is on the lagoon with tables on the sand it i very rustic and Mexican. The food and service is very good mainly seafood cooked to order. Don't expect white table cloths which are not needed. My wife had the shrimp platter which was more than she could eat. The staff recognized us from last year. Felt like... More

Was disappointed after all of the good reviews. I had fish tacos and my husband had shrimp. The tacos at our all inclusive were better. Not worth the trip out of the resort. Pina Colada was good.

Great food and fabulous play set for kids, what more do you need. We went here for lunch most every day of our weeklong stay. Enjoyed variety of tacos, ceviches, and entrees with (plain cheese) quesadillas and fish fingers for kids. Little ones were happy on play set for an hour or two each day for us to enjoy food...

The service was warm and friendly. The fish was fresh and prepared perfect. Great flavors and variety. We went twice in one week because we wanted to try other menu items. Would definitely go back!

Really great fish place in the hotel zone. The pescadillos are great and quite affordable. Ask for a table by the water and keep an eye out for the reptile visitors!
