This place has been around for 8 years and has one of the best rib eyes! (Bife de Chorizo) in Cancun and the Tuna pizza is a must! Prices are very reasonable!

This place has been around for 8 years and is an excellent option for good food good drinks at a very reasonable price. The tuna pizza is excellent! The Bife de Chorizo cut (Ribeye) is one of the best in CANCUN.

Great local spot, super friendly service, reasonable prices. We ate there 2x in a row. Highly recommend the flank/skirt steak, baby back ribs, tostada de atun, and the tacos. The frozen margaritas are very tasty - ask for 'no-azucar' for a skinny option.

Discovered it on this last trip and the food was exceptional. Quiet and a little dark, but the grilled meat was to die for! Mexican grilled meats at their best. Will return.

We were tired to look for places around (they were closed at 22hrs) so we end up at La Tranquita. We were not disappointed, they had a very nice offer of Parrillada at a very cheap price. My friends (first night for them in Mexico)...More
