Went to this restaurant when visiting Akumal for a week… Drinks were delicious, but they had multiple items frozen/out of the microwave. Definitely quite overpriced for the overall experience. Very beautiful view and decent ambience compared to the rest of Akumal.

We were staying in a condo down the beach and decided to try La Lunita at sunset. The ceviche was great, and fish dish was authentically Yucatan. A simple ' hamburguesa' was moist and delicious. Service was perfect. Good cocktail and drink selection. The menu...More

La Lunita is a bright spot on Half Moon Bay. Once you've ventured north of the tourists from the center of town, take a breath and sit down at La Lunita. Small, quaint and a beautiful ocean/bay, you think you've found the quiet you have...More

I think it is still on the menu, but not 100% sure. We ate there twice and the food was great, even with special orders.

Can you send me your wine list? Can we bring our own wine and pay corking fee?

Don't think they allow you to bring your own wine into the restaurant. Personally this is one of the most expensive places to eat in Akumal, and for the price the portions are small.
