We ate very well here. As the name says, they have many dishes with sting ray meat. The tamarind tacos and pescadillas were really good, it was my first time trying this type of meat and I became a fan. My friends also had ceviche...which they loved. Nice service and very nice atmosphere with decoration outside. The prices are also fair for example around 40 pesos for one taco and between 200 to 300 for ceviche. Clearly a recommendation!More

Unusual sea food appears in tacos, pescadillas, tostadas. Absolutely recommended! Prices not too cheap, rather expensive a little bit. Maybe staff might be more attentive! Veriable foods, Mexican, Italian, American.

Centro city restaurant worth the visit. Fresh sea food beautifully prepared at reasonable prices. Several Christmas parties (early December) of local businesses is always a good sign. Loved the shrimp soup (a must) and the Grouper & Shrimp Cervechie. Interesting menu choices. We’re already looking...forward to return. A special thanks to our waiter Andre, his patience and recommendations were appreciated. Short side note. When I called to make a reservation the person answering the phone didn’t speak English. She tracked down a waiter who took the date, time, and number of people, but hung up before I could give him my name. When we got to the restaurant there was a sign on a small table with a card that said reserved for “hombre, party of two”. Close enough. I now am EL HOMBRE to friends and family.More

My mom and walked by and decided to eat here. My mom had the shrimp soup and loved it. The food was good, a nice sized portion yet you did not feel heavy afterwards. Our waiter Jaime was awesome! He was super sweet, happy, and...shared great recommendations with us. He even shared with us a little of the history behind some of the dishes which is a major plus since I love learning about the local culture and history when traveling. The owner, Marcos was also there making sure everything was in order. If you love seafood and come to Cancun, try this place. You won’t be disappointed! Gracias Jaime por una experiencia fenomenal!More

Good, creative food for the money. Black ceviche superb !! tostadas and tacos are great in a beautifull green setting. A little "pushy", forget that fact, do not let the servers guide your instincts. Go simple and eat with pleasure !!!

Amazing food - the ceviche was so good, and lovely mains also. Ambiance is lovely - the trees, lights, and music are great ! We came back 3 times !! Felix, the captain / boss, and Araceley & Marco the waiters were lovely, super helpful,...and happy to go above and beyond - Araceley even nipped to the shops for me as I got lost and needed a lighter ! If you’re in the area - COME VISIT - worth the trip, and you’ll enjoy for sure. Also - very COVID responsible - sanitizer, temp checks, and masks never slipping off the nose for any staff, as I’ve seen in so many other places - was lovely and safe. 10/10 from us - we’ll be back on our next visit to Mexico for sure :)More

I am an over-planner. I research everything before I go anywhere. I was looking for a restaurant that provided a specific experience. I messaged 13 restaurants and this is the only one that replied to me, they also welcomed my request. Since I am not...staying in the hotel zone or even at a hotel, I have to find places to feed myself where I think I will be comfortable. If a restaurant takes the time time to respond to online messages plus appreciates my business, that says a lot. When I am in Cancun, this is where I will eat my daily meal. I will review their food, service, and ambiance when I arrive but I already know it will be great if not amazing.More
