This was a second time to Cancun & we had to go back & see Felipe! He is the best! Great food & booze too! Tequila shots always flowing!! You can't visit Cancun without checking this place out!

Felipe was super nice and the food was great. If you like fish, he has lots of options and if you don't, the Mexican food is delicious and very authentic. He gave us a discount and it was a fun environment.

We found this place for lunch when visiting Playa Caracol. The hostess (probably owner Felipe's wife?) had a fall coming down the stairs and our food fell on the ground.

FF or Phillipe the master of this great little restaurant is a jovial host. My wife and I return here every time we are in Cancun. You can't beat the lobster tail dinner for two. Seven or eight tails, baked potato ,veggies, bread and corn chips with salsa. $49 us dollars all in. If you are staying in the hotel... More
