“It's Authentic”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Quiet, quaint family run restaurant. Cross the bridge from the playa up the hill right at the police station and it's at the next corner. There were no other diners there tonight...it was just me and the pet rabbit! I had the beef fajitas, served with rice and re fried beans...80 pesos. A good sized portion more than I could eat.

“Beautiful, authentic mexican food”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

Just a short drive up from bahia principe hotel in Akumal Pueblo, this family run business gave us the experience we were so desperate for - to eat like the mexicans do, in their own surroundings.

Tiny restaurant with a pet rabbit running around, the food was fresh and cooked to order. The tacos were fantastic and the fajitas as well. Ask for a jamaica juice to get a wonderful red sweet fruity squash type drink!

will definately go back!

“Did not disappoint”
Reviewed 29 April 2013

We ate here to get away from the beach scene, the food was good, cooked fresh, and the service was good as well. You really got a sense of a family run business as they cooked the food right there after you order, so no complaints on the quality/tastiness of the food itself. While the restaurant and seating area is generally clean, the overall building and environs around here are not that reassuring. The prices were perhaps a bit less than in Akumal/beach, but not by much. Worth a try if you have your own transportation to get you there.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

Our favorite place for dinner in Akumal (across the highway in the pueblo). Delicious, fresh food; great service; hardworking family that makes dining there an enjoyable experience. We fell in love with the chorizo quesadillas and the fish tacos but everything we had was good. Guacamole is made when you order (as are all the dishes). We would readily choose this restaurant over the more touristy places at Akumal Bay or Half Moon Bay. Highly recommended if you want authentic mexican at great prices. Beware that the description of the location on Trip Advisor is a bit confusing (it is not in front of the police station). You have to turn right at the intersection where the police station is and drive one block north; then it is on the northeast corner. We found it by checking one of the many free maps in the area.
