While we are many good meals in Yucatan, El Pescado Ciego served one of the most intriguing and memorable. One of our dishes, for example, had mashed potato with octopus - not something intuitively combined but it was nonetheless delicious. In fact, all our food was delicious with perfectly combined flavours and textures. To top it off, the staff were... More

This little restaurant in el Centro de Cancún is close to my hotel, so I took a chance and wandered in. It was early (I was jet-lagged) so I was the first customer. The speciality of the house was the seared tuna, so I ordered that. After I ordered, the server brought some crunchy bites with guacamole and green salsa,... More

The food was really good. Fish and shrimp tacos and octopus tostada. They also gave some appetizers and a shrimp soup that was a little spice, but was really good. Great and fast service. Clean place.

I absolutely loved this place! It was recommended by a friend who is a local and I am so glad we went! I had the shrimp cakes and the sliders and ate every last bit off my plate, it was delicious! The environment was great as well! And not to mention I had the chocolate dessert and it was to... More

We had a little of everything. Lobster and shrimp quesadillas, amazing. Octopus chicharrones, amazing. Crunchy, fresh and a little different. A BBQ Octopus platter was amazing as well. Desserts, especially the crepes were amazing and a dash of ice cream yum. Has indoor and outdoor seating, a full bar and great mojito to keep you cool. A good and safe... More

The restaurant is clean and the beverages are good but not great, service is quick and very friendly though which makes a big difference. I was disappointed by the food which was a bit bland and a bit overpriced (compared to mexican prices)... Might have been an unlucky night...

The menu shows imagination and prices are somewhat modest for the we got. We tried a number of items - including every tostada- and in spite of being picky customers enjoyed all of it and had a very pleasant, Mariachi free, dinner. The only glitch was dealing with a non existing wine list. We were charged $55 for a wine... More
