Came with my fiance last weekend and we had a delicious meal. The calamari, ceviche, shrimp tacos and grilled shrimp did not disappoint! The drinks were strong and tasty. The service was excruciatingly slow. Visits from the waiter were few and far between. Had he come by more often he would have racked the bill up with more drinks and in turn, would have gotten a larger tip. The real failure in service in my opinion was that they didn't warn us that the kitchen was closing. We wanted to order dessert and coffee to finish off the meal but we sat around waiting for 20-30 mins without seeing our waiter. We were enjoying the view and company so it wasn't the biggest deal. Finally I asked a busser if he could get our waiter for us and when he came over he apologized and said the restaurant was closing in 20 mins and the kitchen is already closed. We were shocked. We would give this place another shot though, as the food was cooked very well! Final note: They offered some bug spray which we thought was a nice touch, but I swear that stuff just attracted mosquitoes even more. I counted over 50 mosquito bites on my legs the next morning, it was torture! Bring your own bug spray and make sure it's strong!

We recently had lunch here with two other couples on a sunny, warm Monday afternoon. We sat outside on the beach with our toes in the sand. We started with guacamole and ceviche, both excellent, washed down with ice cold beer and tasty sangria. Each couple ordered a fish entre to share, and no one was disappointed. It was one person's birthday. The staff brought out a wonderful dessert and sang Happy birthday. This was our first visit here, but all agreed it needed to be an annual visit. The food was excellent, the service wonderful, and the location absolutely breathtaking. Note: It is not easy to get there from the hotel zone. We attempted to take a combination of city buses and taxis on our "adventure". Getting there was fairly easy, but the return trip ended up being very expensive. Next time we will take a taxi from the resort and arrange for the driver to pick us up. I hear it is very busy in the evenings and on the weekends.

My wife and I visited Flamingos on Feb. 21, 2020. I came upon Flamingos while searching online for a Playa Majeres area restaurant that serves coconut shrimp, my wife’s favorite. This is a remote area north of Cancun, so there are not a lot of options. We made a reservation the day before. Flamingos was a very pleasant surprise. The restaurant is large and open-air. For a Friday evening, it was not very busy. There are tables outside on the beachfront, but most are covered within the building. It is very clean with bright interior colors. Aquariums display potential dinner options. We ordered the crab cakes for an appetizer and coconut shrimp for the main course. All were excellent. Tortilla chips were served beforehand with a variety of dipping sauces, which were excellent. Our wait staff, Luis and Ernesto, were all very friendly. The live music was a nice touch to a very nice evening out at Flamingos.

We read the reviews, we got the recommendations, but ours was not the great experience others had had. Perhaps we just caught it too close to closing? We aren't sure. The young man waiting on us tried very hard to provide good service but in the end, the experience was disappointing. Had the regular chefs gone home? We were told, after being seated, the grill had been shut down, but then they said they could cook anything we ordered. The food was not that great, neither of us finished our meals. Had the regular bartender gone home? The Stoli and Bombay martinis we ordered "very dry" were at least 1 to 3 vermouth and undrinkable. The building itself, is nice. The beach setting, the lights, all really great. It looks like a nice place. Hope you have a better time here than we did.

My experience was not exactly the best. The place is awesome, the food is delicious but the attention is not that good. It took around 20 minutes for the first person to reach us and ask if our order was already taken. Of course we said no and she offered us drinks so we ask for them. Another 15 minutes later this same lady came back and it seemed like she was going to ask us the same thing again but she remember our faces. She just open her big eyes and left immediately just to come back with our drinks. We ordered our food. I don't know how much time it took this time but it seemed like forever. Good thing that the food was delicious because we were totally unsatisfied with the service already. We finished our food and ask for the check. We paid and left tip because we know thats where most of their salary come from, but I don´t think we are coming back to that place.

What a disappointment! The ambience is lovely, the view is fantastic and the live music was great fun. That is where the positive items end. Food was fair, some arrived from the kitchen cold other items arrived late. The worst was the bill. One person in our party ordered a Canadian Club cocktail. Not only did they not receive Canadian Club but were charged 250 pesos or over 10 US dollars for a Glenfiddich scotch. When we complained they said it had been Canadian Club but we were still charged for the far more expensive item. Another in our party ordered a Margarita and when the waiter asked if she wanted a type of tequila she just said “sure”. The margaritas was billed at 250 pesos. When entrees are between 15 and 20 USD and they sell you a small $12 cocktail it is ridiculous! There are no drink prices on the menu!! Beware!! Ask all prices they want to rip off tourists STAY AWAY!!!

We were very impressed by the level of service. The head chef came to our table to explain how the dipping sauces were made. An obvious pride in in trthe dishes served. Very reasonably priced. Don’t believe the cab prices quoted by the staff at the Villa Del Palmar. It does not cost $10.00 to get to this restaurant. Walk down to the street and negotiate a price yourself. We paid $5.00. It is well worth it and will provide some variety from the hotel fare.

I came for Valentine’s Day they charged us 4,500 pesos. Which is $300 American. The food was no good and got cold after 3minutes of eating it. The prices of the items we got were not even on the menu I just feel like we got ripped off. Also when we were told to put in a tip we didn’t have that much money to left we had to use our card for the rest he said he can only put in a 15% tip for it with was $670 pesos. We had told him then we can either do 200 pesos or nothing and then he put it $200 pesos. The margaritas here are also $600 pesos. There was also a dog running around the whole time begging for food from every table. The steak was full of fat. Was not a good experience on Valentine’s Day.

Flamingos is a beautiful oceanside restaurant north of Cancun. Bright and white inside with beach seating . Too windy the night we went to sit outside. The food was great, and the service was attentive. Being able to see your seafood choices on ice in a cold room was innovative.The only drawback is the distance from the hotel zone. Overall we had a great time at Flamingos!

I made a reservation for my birthday dinner and was blown away by how delicious the food was!! The views were breathtaking, we were even able to walk on the beach beside the restaurant while we waited for our food. The service was amazing!! We were greeted by Guillermo and served by Iran and Lorenzo -- they took such great care of us! The drinks were amazing, we got beer and mojitos and they were delicious! Every plate was beautifully made and presented, it tasted fresh, and was a good amount as well for the price. At the end of my meal, the staff brought me a cheesecake to celebrate my birthday. My family and I will definitely return. 10 out of 10 5 stars!!

My wife and I have gone to Flamingos two nights in a row. The staff is friendly and eager to please the customers. They are following very realistic compliances concerning Covid19. All the staff wear masks and make a point to disinfect tables before you are seated. Each night, there has been live music. Saturday the group played Cuban influenced music. Sunday the music was more Caribbean. Our meals were prepared over a woodfire and were prepared with care. Excellent quality. The prices are moderate when considering the quality of the entire experience. If you want well prepared seafood, entertainment and excellent service, Flamingos is the place to go.

Flamingos did it again! We ate here when we were in Cancun 4 years ago and are back for our second visit this week. After an amazing charter trip yesterday, we had some Mahi fillets that we brought with us to the restaurant. The chef made the fish into the most amazing ceviche and prepared it three other ways too. The wait staff was incredibly attentive and there is no better ambiance than what nature provides on the beach under the moonlit sky.

Flamingos was so great!! The staff was super kind, sweet, and funny. Attention was prompt, excellent all around, and the staff went above and beyond to make guests feel at home. They joked around with me, had great food, and even provided me with a personal anti-mosquito candle to ward off the tiny insect pests as they kept biting my feet. The fact that it’s a seashore restaurant made it all that much better, as the evening ocean breeze, lights, and plan trees were SO memorable. Excellent job Flamingos!! Keep it up! 5 of 5 ⭐️✨

The view and atmosphere were great, the food okay, but the price-food quality relationshion quite low . Altough the waitresses were friendly, I had the feeling the restaurant system encourage them to rush you with drinks and meal to try to sell you more. They seem to be under a lot of stress/pressure. However, everything went relatively well until we paid. My husband added the tip to the bill (more or less 13% of the bill) and then everything changed: suddenly no more smiles, no more friendliness and, as I was heading to the door (my husband and our friend were already outside) and ready to say thanks and good by, our waitress avoiding eye contact, passed me by as another waitress came out of nowhere and gave me a shove. I didn't hurt, but I was in schock, could not properly react but I did realize it was on purpose... so people take your cautions if you dare to go here... For me this was the last time, never again to this place!!!

We visit here every time we are in Cancun/Punta Sam. High end restaurant on the beach. Excellent attentive service (Cinthia was great), excellent fresh seafood with many options, grilled steak was to die for, live music, seating on the beach, and play area for kids. Very reasonable prices. Highly recommend will definitely come again!
