This was a recommendation of our concierge a short walk from our hotel. Large thatched roof structure on the beach. Nice view. We had cocktails which were well prepared. My wife and I both got the fish steaks prepared in local styles. It was fresh and the Yucatan styles were a nice change from our US Gulf Coast usual preparations.... More

This restaurant is on the shore of the ocean. It is wide open and only has a roof. It's great ambient. Food is good and not expensive

Before heading back to Toronto, a group of 8 of us decided to have a nice dinner the night before. We decided to go to Mocambo since 2 of us had gone earlier that week for lunch and they loved it. It was exactly what they said it would be- great food, service and the bartender gave my friend a... More

We went on our first night in Cancún and were amazed. They had amazing cocktails (we recommend the Margarita Mocambo), and the food was beyond incredible. They offer a dish which is a combination of grilled seafoods - salmon, tuna, shrimp, a local fish, and it is absolutely delicious and definitely shareable between two or three people. We also had...

On the water in a nice area of Cancun. Nice looking place in the middle of all the fun, live music and the sound of the wave's makes this a terrific place for lunch or dinner. Average food in a very nice setting. Dinner for 2 with drinks will be around 75.00 . Not cheap but a nice place with... More

We ordered a Mexican fish dish a la carte, along with Mocambo margaritas. The fish was very fresh and tasty, and the drinks were good. Food portions were sensible, so we were able to eat everything without feeling stuffed. The mariachis were the most talented we have ever heard! They charge 80 pesos per song, which was well earned.
