Ciega Pescado Is one of our favorite restaurants with excellent tender, melt in your mouth tuna in a soy lime butter sauce served with mash potatoes. The seafood soup is fantastic and served piping hot. A small sample of seafood broth precedes the meal along with very interesting free-form “bread sticks” (I’m not sure what else to call them) and... More

Enjoyed the Tuna Steak on mashed potatoes. Excellent fish soup, Best apple pastery in Mexico. Monday nite was quiet so we had the place to ourselves. Would recommend to youngsters on a date, as well as more seniors like ourselves.

We went for dinner, not much to write about, it's a small place, the menu tries to be different, the waiters don't make any suggestion, you can't see what you are eating, outside is dark, the waiters are in a hurry to puck up the plates, they close at 11:00pm, they don't care if you are in the middle of...

We were looking for a quick bite to eat as we wandered from our small hotel around the corner the night before we departed from our vacation in the Yucatán. The food and experience at this restaurant was remarkable. We arrived early ( due to a 5 am taxi pick up reserved for following morning). Sat outside under a thatched... More

This restaurant is in a good section of town on Nader Street. All tourists visiting Cancun should discover this restaurant as well as others on Nader Street. This restaurant has a menu in English so that you can point to what you want because the waiters do not speak English. The food is exceptional. One of my favorite meals is... More

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
