The food was ok - but didn´t taste much. Our family of 6 wasn´t very impressed. But the environment and view was great:) I would rather go to other places in Akumal.

This is a pristine spot right on the beach. We enjoyed watching the moon rise over Half Moon Bay. The waitstaff were professional. We really enjoyed the Peruvian Ceviche and the fish. The mixed fried seafood appetizer was nothing special which is why I only...More

We dropped into La Lunita by chance about a week ago. The food was fantastic and the view from the terrace was spectacular. There is a new chef/owner and he is cooking dishes that are fairly unique for the Akumal area. We were with another...More

We had lunch at La Lunita two years ago and loved the lamb burger. We will be back in March 2017. Is the lamb burger still on the menu?

I think it is still on the menu, but not 100% sure. We ate there twice and the food was great, even with special orders.

Can you send me your wine list? Can we bring our own wine and pay corking fee?
