This Progreso institution deserves its reputation as a good place to eat. My husband and I were the only ex-pats in the restaurant on a Sunday afternoon—it was filled with Mexicans. We shared the ceviche and the poc chuc. Both were excellent, but the ceviche was divine! We ordered two desserts: the platanos Flamingo and plantains with cream. Both good.... More

We headed out to progreso on a hot day after visiting ruins around Merida for a couple of days. We wanted a relaxing day on a beach and flamingo's breakfast was such a perfect start. Right on the beach this restaurant is very nice and spacious with great service and fantastic food.

We popped in here for a drink based on a recommendation in the lonely planet guide. It is in a good spot next to the malecon however the service was not good enough. When we sat down we weren't sure if we were just getting a drink or a snack also. After reading the menu we decided that there was... More

This is by far the best Restaurant I found in Progreso. Besides the affordable prices the meals are delicious and the atmosphere relaxed with awesome music and the beautiful view of the Malecon

Great meal. Tried queso cheese, guacamole, sevichi and grilled shrimp. Everything was delicious. We were here early, so no crowd. Beautiful setting, nice breeze coming off the ocean.

very touristy with prices to reflect but it is across from gorgeous Progreso beach and the waiters are always friendly and accommodating. You get a few local Mayan dishes as starters then the mixto Ceviche has always been my "go to" here with plantains and heavy cream for desert.

Great fried fish. Good value for the money. I've gone back several times already; at least once a year.

Was staying in hot, humid, mosquito infested Merida and took the Auto Progreso bus to the beach at Progreso for a change of pace. I made sure to go on a day that I knew the cruise ships weren't in town. Progreso is a charming, sleepy beach town but is overrun with many beggars and over zealous vendors. I had... More
