The place is just amazing, inexpensive great seafood with a highly motivated and friendly staff. The best shrimp aguachile I have ever tried. Also tried the Orange Shrimp that was one of a kind gourmet dish. So satisfied that we visited it twice.

If you are in Cancun this is a great place for dinner, a must stop. Food, service and atmosphere are all fantastic..

The coconut fried shrimp were amazing. If fried seafood aren't your thing, the fresh fish of the day is outstanding, grilled or veracruz. Probably the best seafood for your money in the hotel zone. Not fine dining, but great tasting seafood.

Local spot recommended by our hotel - Starwood. Comfortable restaurant with nice view of the bay although mosquito spray was necessary (dusk, on the water, and warm) just as you would expect for summer in Cancun. Comfortable, white table cloth, friendly and attentive wait staff.
