Every time I'm in Cancun I make it a point to eat at El Cejas. Had the shrimp cocktail for lunch and was not disappointed, going back tonight for conch.

The food is good and authentic, it's not very expensive, we paid around 35$ for two people but we ate a lot and the food was really good. The place is really authentic, what you come here for kind :)

Great food with amazing atmosphere. Very cheap and not touristy as other places. If you're looking to experience local Mexican seafood, this is the place to be.

We visited this place twice in one week. The seafood was really fresh and delicious. The price was much better than the hotel zone. I wish I could have those oysters everyday!

The restaurant was spot on. Very fresh, and not very expensive. Had the oysters and crab claws first, and then ordered the ceviche and a combination place of garlic fish and shrimp. Very good food, and definitely beats going to the overrated and over priced...More

Actually I've been just wondering if they are going to have the (Hog Fish ) this year, We will be in Cancun in 24-June-2017 thru 08-July-2017. My husband really loves this eatery. WE always come here at least twice during our stay. Our favorite servers are Pedro, Andras, and one other. Thanks El Cejas I believe the fish is called Bonqinet??

Thanks all, I REALLY would like to know is there any way someone could get me a website to email them to ask ? About the (Hog Fish ) or (Red Snapper) preferably the Hog Fish. Looking forward to seeing our friends there.
