Real nice little restaurant nestled by the water in the La Isla Mall. Frozen drinks are great. We had the surf and turf dinner. Very large portion for 2 people. Staff great and Grande tequila shots!

Overall we quite enjoyed our meal. The lobster was great and the fresh pasta that came with it just as good. The cocktails are nice but humongous in size. When they brought us the bill they automatically tried to tip themselves 20% and this was factored into the bill. Even though we didn't end up tipping them that much we... More

First, the food is good. However, getting ripped off leaves a bad taste. 15% was added to our bill and when we questioned this we were told it was a government tax.We were asked to pay in cash as the credit card machine was not working. We gave him 15%. Later we found out we had in fact given him... More

Beware of this restaurant's billing practice .... we thought something was strange & then read the 'terrible' reviews. We got duped too! He told us the additional charge was mostly a government tax but it was probably entirely their tip. We then tipped again, twice. He says there charge card wasn't working probably because the charge card companies got frustrated... More

Our visit was great until we went to check out and they were offering. To book us a tour for 25% off. We were there for dinner and felt a... More

We came across this place by accident while strolling through La Isla Mall. My husband had lobster tails and I had shrimp kebabs, both were outstanding. Both came with steamed/sautéed vegetable noodles (carrots and squash) that was so good. They offered us a free appetizer, so we tried the nachos which were great. The service was good and the staff... More

We visited on Tuesday, February 7, 2017. They open at 12:00 noon. We were the first ones of the day. I last ate here 4 years ago. I ordered the same entree: lobster and shrimp curry. Generous amounts of lobster meat and shrimp with a wonderful yellow curry and bits of roasted banana and pineapple mixed in. Served with white... More

We ate a late lunch at Baby Lobster in the La Isla mall. The seating is outside next to the inlet of water. It was hot out, but the fans they had kept you cool and you sat in the shade. I had chicken fajitas and my husband had a burger and fries (huge burger). The food was fine, but... More

Nice restaurant with very friendly staff. The food was good although a little salty for my palette. Be careful if you ask for a large beer, it's about a litre. Also the pina colada was large!

After 1 1/2 years, we returned to Cancun and Baby Lobster. To their credit, the owners read some of the reviews, because at the end of the meal we received an itemized check, with a 15% tip highlighted. And no excuses about the credit card machine not working. Food - as always was very good. My wife and son shared... More
