They cooked us the most magnificent stuffed crab feast in May when they first opened in their new location. We can't wait to go back.

We were literally walking down the street seeing what this little area had to offer and walked into Chiquita's for a cold drink. My daughter and I wanted cold water, and Fernando asked if we wanted coconut water - he literally took a big knife out back and cut the tops off of two coconuts and stuck straws in them... More

This little road side eatery in Mahahual has some of the best food I've had in Mexico! The guacamole and ceviche were very fresh, tasty and made to order, excellent. Was on a cruise and having ceviche in every country we hit and this was the best by far. Service was warm and attentive and prices great. Don't be fooled... More

Fernando welcomed us personally to the restaurant, already busy with locals. He promised us an economical meal, and a raste of the local cuisine. The garlic prawns recommended were great, and we were even treated to a root-based drink from Costa Maya (colour seemed similar to beetroot) alongside our chelada and all-natural piña coladas. Fernando's wife cooked it all and... More

Fernando served us an OUTSTANDING lunch today at Chiquita's. The four of us shared a huge platter of grilled red snapper with Mayan spice and the other half was shrimp and lobster! Fernando also made us his specialty drink.... Tamarindo margaritas. We even have enough leftovers for dinner. We'll definitely be back!

Chiquitas use to be on the beach and then one day it was closed. I was so disappointed but a few weeks later he opened in a new location one block off the beach. I was thrilled to see Fernando today. My family was in town and he made a delicious grand meal for us along with his famous Tamarindo... More

This was our first visit to Mahahual and we chose to go to Chiquita's based on trip advisor reviews. We just wanted a place to sit and enjoy the view along with drinks and snacks for an afternoon happy hour. My husband ordered a bucket of 10 small beers for $10 which was a very good bargain. We also ordered... More

Visited here on a cruise recently. A group booking had been made by a friend of ours in advance - 35 dollars per head lunch and drinks. Half the money was paid at the time of booking with the balance to be paid on the spot. At the end of the lunch a collection of the other 17.50 per head... More
