Amazing surprise from Fred’s Seafood. This place was recommended and it surpassed expectations, which I tried not to have before going. The outdoor seating was incredible, delicious ceviche & Ceaser salad, A cocktail mixologist on the spot. My friend’s drinks looked fab.. Entrees were incredible...and tiramisu for dessert. We were waited on like royalty. Even nicer the general manager came over to check on us and we had a lively conversation and people were very kfriendly. Besos to Fred’sMore

I want to start and say thank you thank you Luis Rafa which was a waiter. Best service I have ever experience and I have traveled all over the world and Luis absolutely blown me away. My experience was above all the food was exceptional....I ordered the seafood for two and lobster bisque cooked and served with protection melt in your mouth flavors. So do yourself a favor and not visit Cancun without making a trip here. And better yet they don’t hound you for a tip. People who been to Cancun understand this reference. Again thank you Luis and I absolutely enjoy the food and the service. God bless.More

Absolutely WONDERFUL service at Fred’s. Incredible, fresh and flavorful ceviche (get the one with mango and pineapple, it’s mixed fresh in front of you and so full of flavor!). The lobster bisque was perfection, especially with the delicious warm bread. I got the scallops with...mushrooms and risotto and both my husband and I thought it was the best risotto dish we had ever had. My husband ordered the crab tacos and they were actually a little too greasy/fried for him. He wasn’t going to send it back but the manager stopped by and was SO kind and insisted we trade it for something else. He made us feel like it was absolutely no problem which made us feel very valued as customers. It’s a very fine dining experience, we had the full attention of our servers, Jose and Jesus did an excellent job attending to our every need. We might even come back again before we leave, it was truly one of our favorite places in Cancun.More
