This is our 9th or 10th time in Cancun, and it's pretty windy, cold and overcast, so we were looking for an adventure, some great food and to get out of the hotel zone, were we got suckered in to a 1,640 peso lunch that was way below average. I found Va q 'Va!!! ("Go Go!") on the web, and... More

Authentic local food , very good , large portions , and great drinks. Reasonable prices ... great service ... great local... More

Took an Uber to get here and the ride was worth it. The food was fantastic and so reasonably priced that we ate too much! The service was top notch and I can't say enough how friendly and helpful the whole staff was. Get away from the overrun hotel zone and visit this little gem!!!

If you want to taste authentic mexican seafood head out to va q va, it might be scary for a tourist to wander around the city and outside the hotel zone but don't be scared, get a taxi outside the hotel zone (will charge way cheaper) and tell him the restaurant, he will know exactly where to take you..

We had read about this place on Trip Advisor and took not one but two evenings trying to find it because trip advisor had a link to the wrong map (google map it if you go). It's not easy to get to, you need a rental car, so decide if the ambiance and typical Mexican feel is enough to make... More

The food was fantastic and service very good. Guacamole was the best we've had in Mexico. Restaurnt is a bit far from city center, especially Zona Hotelera but it was well worth the trip. Definitely going back!
