We had been told by several locals that we needed to try the seafood buffet at Mocambo's so we checked it out online and found the buffet hours to be listed as Tuesday through Thursday from noon until 5:00. When we got there we found they no longer have a buffet. We decided to order a drink and check out... More

Peaceful place, with an amazing view, delicious food but be cautious, food portions are bigger than you would expect. For me the Oysters were the ones that made visit twice the place. Felt really pampered by waiters. Congrats to the staff!

This was a recommendation of our concierge a short walk from our hotel. Large thatched roof structure on the beach. Nice view. We had cocktails which were well prepared. My wife and I both got the fish steaks prepared in local styles. It was fresh and the Yucatan styles were a nice change from our US Gulf Coast usual preparations.... More

This restaurant is on the shore of the ocean. It is wide open and only has a roof. It's great ambient. Food is good and not expensive

It was exactly what they said it would be- great food, service and the bartender gave my friend a... More
