We walked the square looking for a nice place to eat with the family, and at the outset, we chose the place for the gorgeous rooftop deck. What we didn't expect was the best pizza we have had in our whole time in Mexico. Say what you will about expats, they definitely elevate the non-native foods like pizza. Desserts were... More

Local restaurant with pleasant roof terrace including for dinner, but in July the place was virtually empty with no tourists. Nice but quiet.

We only ate breakfast here. The egg dishes were good, the coffee was decent, and the pancake was huge.

Really not sure why this restaurant gets such great reviews, we ate here twice and found the pizza very average. My wife and I have had much better pizza many times at many other places, including our usual place at home. It is cheap though, which might explain the mediocre food.

And I don't eat seafood. I wish Celestun had a couple of what we might consider typical Mexican restaurants. El Lobo has good pizza, and burgers, and breakfast (which we didn't try). His hours are weird at night, like 7-11pm, when most other restaurants are closed.

Good flavor, variety of food, pizza, hamburgers, tacos, icecream, fare rates and excellent service!👍🏼 Must try when get Celestun, most of all because all restaurants close early.

The eggs were delicious, as was the yogurt and granola, but the potato patty was soaked with grease and barely edible. Friendly manager! I'd recommend changing the potatoes to home-fried potatoes with onions, as you get in many other Mexican breakfast restaurants, and the breakfast would be much improved.

It stands on the beach, nice tortillas and pacifico. You can also use the shower if you're not staying a night over in the town

Very good hamburger and also breakfast served with friendly style by Pascal and his wife. There is not much open at night in celestun in the off season and it was wonderful to find this welcoming place. You can also look out to the square and see the local action.

Very good pizza and friendly owner and staff. If you want a really good pizza when you are in the fishing village of Celestun this is the place to go.
