We went there four times and we're pretty satisfied. The crusted tuna was outstanding the Tia soup doubly outstanding. I did have a steak special one night that was not impressive, but having eaten at six of the restaurants in Akumal I thought this was the most up scale. Reservations are required they fill up pretty much every night. Service... More

The restaurant has indoor, outdoor, and patio seating. Sit outdoors or on the covered patio. Beautiful and breezy. The food is very good; more complex than many local places--this is the special-night-out place for your vacation. The wait staff are all excellent, so nice, and helpful. We have eaten there for 10 years running when we visit Akumal and we... More

We were with family on vacation. Three members of our group had been to this restaurant before and wanted to return. We had a tight timeline due to an excursion that we had booked and we let our server know that when we arrived. We sat outside overlooking the bay and watching people snorkelling. There were seven of us representing... More

Great fish dinner, right on the beach! Of course the fish was fresh and grilled perfectly, the veggies were delicious, and the dessert was chocolate and wonderful!

WE walked down to this patio restaurant and found it to be a nice white napkin dinner restaurant. No more expensive than the other at hand restaurants, it was a nice change of pace.

We went on Friday, langosta night and the lobster paella was delicious. You need reservations. The view of the bay, the moonlight off the water and a seat on the patio is impeccable. You can't get any better! I highly recommend this restaurant as a fantastic dining experience in Akumal.

Wow! This fabulous beach restaurant blew us away with a delicious meal and romantic ocean view. The black sesame encrusted tuna was the overwhelming favorite. Jumbo shrimp with garlic and spicy pineapple was also great. Our waiter was fast friendly and efficient. You have to try the habanero ice cream with chocolate cake. You have to treat yourself to this... More

Small and elegant with a stunning view, good food and good service. It's on Half Moon Bay in Akumal ,tucked away from the road but right on the ocean. Parking available . A great place for cocktails and supper.
