My new favorite seafood restaurant in Cancun. I'll gone to a lot seafood restaurants in Cancun. Santos is, by far, my favorite. Great location, easy to get to, on the hotel strip. Jump on the bus or taxi and now uber to get there. Great prices! Excellent food with lots of choices on salsa.

A very small restaurant situated between El Fish Fritanga and La Destileria on Kukulcan about the 12.7 KM, they have 4 tables on a patio in the front (street side) and 2 inside by the bar...and can seat about 12 upstairs. I believe they have the best Ceviche in Cancun...and a rather interesting twist to guacamole...they add smoked oysters to... More

We stumbled upon this place as we were walking on the Blvd. looking for two of the other restaurants we'd seen advertised. The prices are great! We had fajitas, shrimp tacos, margaritas, and their salsa. Everything was great! The chicken and shrimp were so tender.

The restaurant has a really cool design. There are masked Mexican wrestlers mixed in with the other Mexican tiles. The hot sauce and salt and pepper holder is also shaped line a little ring. It's not themed for wrestling or anything but it's just a cool touch. My wife had shrimp ceviche which was bland and the worst ceviche of... More

This is an excellent place to go if you are looking for authentic and affordable Mexican food in the Cancun hotel zone. The margaritas here were better than those in the hotel bar. The smoked oyster guacamole was excellent and one order was more than enough for two people. The service was good and very prompt. The decor is tacky... More

This is a hole in the wall and if you blink you may miss it! It is right beside a place that sells excursions. Take the time and effort to find it, you won't be disappointed! You can eat and drink for about $10 US per person. Well worth the price! Home-made tortillas!
