Saw this cute, little stop on the way to our resort so we walked up for lunch. What a great decision. They recommend the Hurricane Taco (sea bass) for me since fish is my choice & the pulled pork taco for hubby. Both were so good. Hubby then tried the beef brisket the also recommend. He said both were great & he even liked mine so well we will be going back so he can get him a fish taco & he doesn't even like fish. Need I say more!!!

We spend several weeks in Cancun each year and are always looking for new places. Read about this place on trip advisor before going in January. While it is small, like a road side stand in the hotel zone, we enjoyed it alot! The tacos and drinks were excellent. Also try the beef brisket slider. John, the owner was an excellent host, and his staff were very friendly and attentive. Very relaxed, fun place to eat. Our college age sons claimed it as one of their favorites. We have a lot of favorite places to eat in Cancun, most are quite a bit more expensive than this, but this one has been added to our list. We own at the Royal Sands and this a easy bus ride down to eat and a nice change of pace!

Great atmosphere. Kenny, our host, was a real treat and we had a lot of fun with him.
Decent menu, great prices, great food. The owner will be there with his family. Bring Peso's as there is a service charge for a credit card.

Basically the food is good quality at a great price. The menu is limited but most pubs are like that. This one at least is fairly healthy, is fresh, and stands out for value amidst the resort fares. The owner is always there and is happy to chat with you. Atmoshere is very casual for this open air neat the thoroughfare bar/restaurant.

We had a little trouble finding this little place, (it's across the street from the Grand Oasis resort, right at a bus stop, in the hotel zone - 16.5 Km), but once we did, we were happy we made the effort! Delicious fish and homemade tortillas filled us up for not very much money. We would return!
