Even my husband (self professed non-fan of ceviche) helped me devour my ceviche (word to the wise: a small is anything but). His octopus platter was to die for, and we also had some excellent breaded fried fish. Go when hungry.

This is the premier seafood restaurant in Tulum for one reason primarily: bang for your buck. The portions are very generous and the seafood is incredibly fresh and well-cooked. What else can I say? Just go! You won't regret it.

The food is excellent, was my second visit, had to wait in line for a table but the service and food were worth it... LOVE THIS PLACE... GOOD PRICED SEAFOOD.. (LOBSTER AND SEAFOOD SOUP ARE THE BOMB.COM)

Great little local place. Want crab? They got it. Want octopus? Got that too. Wants fried fillet? No problem. Whole fried fish? Yup. Ceviche? Of course. Looking forward to going again.

had a stop here because the ceviche was highly recommended. It did not disappoint. The portions are huge so unless you and your best friend are starving, stay with the small or medium orders.
Service was good, the atmosphere was plain. There was a large crowd there when we arrived, mostly locals, so the rest of the food must also be good.
