Excellent service, good food. Cold beer, what else could we ask for? I had a spinach salad which had a unique taste that I could not place. The shrimp ceviche was large and tasty.

Okay but expected better prices since it was in the pueblo. Was a bit disappointed. Ordered guacamole after seeing prices.

We ate here 4 times in two weeks. The salsa with chips is fantastic. Their chicken fajitas are the best I've ever eaten. We went for rib night and the ribs were excellent. Everything is very fresh. Gilbert is very accommodating to your every want and need. We loved this place! We were here three years ago and liked it... More

Tequilaville is easy to find on the north (right hand) side of the street in the second block after entering the pueblo. We stopped in for dinner without a reservation and were told by the friendly owner that it would be a one hour wait for food because a big group had come in before us. It actually took around...

Six of us went to dinner here. Such a great surprise. Food is fresh! Fresh! Fresh! Everything was just delicious. The fish ceviche and garlic fish were to die for and although I didn't try them, the wings were getting rave reviews, at our table. The waiter ( we suspect the owner) was great with a warm sense of humour.... More

This restaurant is in Akumal Pueblo but is one of the best in Akumal. Traditional curbside restaurant that may not look fancy from the outside but has outstanding food. The fish is so fresh, the fajitas are superb and the wings are excellent. Coconut shrimp is one of the specialties and is remarkable. Don't miss out on this local small... More

The fried fish fillet is over the top! I have had a few different meals here. Always good service, a few locals hang out here. However, if you like fried fish, this is the place!

Everyone visits Akumal to swim with the turtles but do yourself a huge favor and choose to visit Gilley's Tequilaville in the Akumal pueblo! The decor is inviting and beachy...the burgers are a best seller due to a secret ingredient...perhaps the chef will share his secret. Fun...food and Mexican ambiance...a true Mexican delight!
