Heard this was a nice place to eat and tried it. It is located on the far north end of 5th avenue. Close to our Royal Hacienda ville. The place was very nice with excellent seafood. The combo ribs, shrimp and lobster was only 350 pesos. The taste was excellent, server and staff were very friendly and bathrooms nice and... More

This was our second visit, and it was no easier to find the second time. Third time will be the charm. I can only say the seafood is superb. None of our group of four is overly comfortable with Spanish menus, so choices are difficult. But we somehow muddle thru and enjoy whatever we order. On the way out, one... More

This is our 9th or 10th time in Cancun, and it's pretty windy, cold and overcast, so we were looking for an adventure, some great food and to get out of the hotel zone, were we got suckered in to a 1,640 peso lunch that was way below average. I found Va q 'Va!!! ("Go Go!") on the web, and... More

Took an Uber to get here and the ride was worth it. The food was fantastic and so reasonably priced that we ate too much! The service was top notch and I can't say enough how friendly and helpful the whole staff was. Get away from the overrun hotel zone and visit this little gem!!!

We had read about this place on Trip Advisor and took not one but two evenings trying to find it because trip advisor had a link to the wrong map (google map it if you go). It's not easy to get to, you need a rental car, so decide if the ambiance and typical Mexican feel is enough to make... More
