Heard this was a nice place to eat and tried it. It is located on the far north end of 5th avenue. Close to our Royal Hacienda ville. The place was very nice with excellent seafood. The combo ribs, shrimp and lobster was only 350 pesos. The taste was excellent, server and staff were very friendly and bathrooms nice and clean. The second floor dining area was nice and airy. Sadly no cervaza though! We are going back again soon. I would recommend this establishment.

This was our second visit, and it was no easier to find the second time. Third time will be the charm.

I can only say the seafood is superb. None of our group of four is overly comfortable with Spanish menus, so choices are difficult. But we somehow muddle thru and enjoy whatever we order.

On the way out, one of the waiters was kind enough to suggest using the bus to the hotel zone instead of the cab. We hadn't realized that was an option out there. We'll use that method to get there also next time.

This is our 9th or 10th time in Cancun, and it's pretty windy, cold and overcast, so we were looking for an adventure, some great food and to get out of the hotel zone, were we got suckered in to a 1,640 peso lunch that was way below average.

I found Va q 'Va!!! ("Go Go!") on the web, and we took a taxi ride for 36 minutes from the hotel, which doubled as a sight seeing trip. Our taxi driver waited for us, and the round trip was 700 pesos, so not cheap, but worth it ;-)

We split two excellent ship dishes and had 2 margaritas and 1 beer for 470 pesos. Service was outstanding.

The locals at the hotel knew of this restaurant, and said it's a ways away, but really good and affordable.

We'll be going back for lobster ;-)

We were taken here by one of the wonderful residents of Cancun . Out of the hotel zone,would be very difficult to find if not for the locals , but once inside you will want to come back . Authentic local food , very good , large portions , and great drinks. Reasonable prices ... great service ... great local musicians performing while dining...makes for a fun atmosphere ...

This restaurant should be rated # 1 in cancun..the ceviche was outstanding. Very very fresh. The lobster were amazing. Micheladas are a must. The service is also amazing. And when we got the bill it's was the cheapest bill and the best tasting in cancun. Edgar the owner greets everyone. They have live music . It's a little far from the hotel Zona but don't be afraid of the location of this restaurant. A must go !!!!
