My husband and I came here for a romantic dinner during a trip with some friends. The food was ok, but a bit over seasoned with a heavy sauce overpowering a beautiful piece of fish. We found the prices to be much higher than other restaurants in the area. We arrived without a reservation so understandably we did not get to sit on the beachside deck, but it was pleasant inside as the wind that night was terrible. The worst part was the nonexistent service. Food was slow to come out then the mains came 5 min after our appetizer, and then we were completely ignored until we had to get up and ask for the bill.

Visited with 3 teenage boys and 4 parents. All left happy and satisfied. Gorgeous location, not at all touristy. The food was excellent, especially loved the tuna tostadas, coconut shrimp, soft shell lettuce wraps. (We actually just ordered a bunch of appetizers vs. a main meal. The appetizers are HUGE and we ordered way too much...a nice problem to have.) The staff also accommodated a few of our picky eaters who didn't want the gourmet options from the menu: spaghetti with butter/cheese is always a winner. The final bill was amazingly inexpensive for such an incredible dinner. (*They DO take credit cards, but ask for the tip in cash.) Highly recommend, but make sure to get a reservation as the seating is limited.

Stayed in La Mirage condos (above restaurant) so an easy walk down! Beautiful table on patio overlooking Bay. Tried the Surf & Turf (Corval White fish & Lamp Chop). Fish was ok - meat was great! Service pretty good for Akumal area. Setting was lovely!

Went here a couple times during our stay in Akumal. Just had drinks. The wife really enjoyed their Sangria. The service was good and the drinks were stiff. Prices were reasonable. And all this right on the beach!

The location is right on the beach, The manager Carlos is friendly with a delightful smile and attitude that sets the mood from the start. The prices a fair and reasonable and the food is outstanding. We were in Akumal for 5 weeks and ate here every week. Fridays they have a Lobster special that's always good. We always started sharing the Tuna Tostada which was the best we had ever eaten. All the food is fresh and prepared perfectly. The servers are great and the bartender makes the best Don Julio 70 Martini's. There is no question this is the best restaurant in Akumal. We will be back again next year for sure.
