The breakfast here was outstanding. Waffles with fresh strawberries and kiwis decorating the plate. Also a fabulous skillet presentation of eggs, potatoes, peppers, etc.

We had a great meal of fish and chips here. We also stopped for happy hour one afternoon. It's a good place to sit and watch the dolphins.

My daughter, son-in-law, and I spent six wonderful days in Puerto Aventuras. On the third night we decided to try Hippos where we encountered a tipsy hostess and a rude waiter. That was only the beginning! We ordered fish and chips which were inedible....seriously, the...More

Lovely breakfast, lunch, dinner and special event restaurant overlooking the dolphins which are less than 15 feet away. Hippo has a great Taco Bar on our second patio with all the toppings you can imagine. Fresh daily fish and lobster sold by the gram. Hand carved American Black Angus steaks cut to size.We have large screen TV's for sports events but keep the volume low so others can enjoy the ambiance. Free fresh popcorn and terrific cocktails and ice cold draft/bottled beers make Hippo a gem in Puerto Aventuras for all to enjoy.
