This was the first year we ate here. It's a great little place that fills up fast. Great food and service. We were there for lunch. We were sitting under a tree when our server asked if we wanted to move inside or under the canopy, because it was going to rain. We thought he was crazy, because the sky... More

My husband and I went for lunch there one afternoon last week. The restaurant overlooks the marina area. It's always nice to watch the dolphins while enjoying food and drink. Service was good as only two tables were occupied and no smokers nearby. Food was decent and wine was good. We usually eat at The Pub as the prices for... More

The menu has a little bit of everything from burgers to salads and sandwiches as well as full plates. Wife had chicken parm sandwich with a Greek salad. Sandwich was good, salad was traditional no greens. Tried the... More

We have had several meals at Hippo's lately and all were great. The portions are big and the dinners come with two sides. We particularly liked the Hippo's Chicken, the barbecued ribs and the hamburgers. (We usually try not to eat burgers while in Mexico because there are so many other wonderful foods to enjoy!)

Our family really enjoyed the omelets. We had the choice of fillings and sides. The staff was kind and quickly served us coffee and refills. My daughter enjoyed the salmon bagel, as well. The covered restaurant is nice in the heat and we had a view of the waterfalls in the dolphin enclosure.

Our family really liked this restaurant. Food is very good, margaritas taste of pure lime, tequila, and agave syrup. We ate here several times during our 9 day stay over Christmas. The table-side prepared shrimp is the best, our teens liked the ribs and steaks, and our vegan child was very happy with the veggie burgers. Overall, our favorite restaurant... More

We went here for dinner one evening. Great food and wonderful atmosphere. Owner greeted us and Alex the bar tender was very friendly. They had a fun Foosball table for the kids to play. Loved the table side salad and shrimp that was prepared. We had 13 in our party, food came out quickly and was delicious!

The food is nothing to write home about. The menu is a little confusing as they tried to do American food with an Italian Mexican mix. But the drinks are cheap and the snack foods are delicious. Would go watch another game there anytime.

Description
Lovely breakfast, lunch, dinner and special event restaurant overlooking the dolphins which are less than 15 feet away. Hippo has a great Taco Bar on our second patio with all the toppings you can imagine. Fresh daily fish and lobster sold by the gram. Hand carved American Black Angus steaks cut to size.We have large screen TV's for sports events but keep the volume low so others can enjoy the ambiance. Free fresh popcorn and terrific cocktails and ice cold draft/bottled beers make Hippo a gem in Puerto Aventuras for all to enjoy.
