We had a great meal of fish and chips here. We also stopped for happy hour one afternoon. It's a good place to sit and watch the dolphins.

My daughter, son-in-law, and I spent six wonderful days in Puerto Aventuras. On the third night we decided to try Hippos where we encountered a tipsy hostess and a rude waiter. That was only the beginning! We ordered fish and chips which were inedible....seriously, the...More

Hippos offers a good menu better than most on the square but they are more expensive and do not OFFER LOCALS a 10 % discount as many others do. PLUS IF YOU PAY with credit or debit they are going to charge you a 5%...More

The staff in this place is very friendly. Even though we didn't have a reservation and the place was packed, they still found a table for us inside. I took the coconut prawns, regretfully they were a bit too dry. My husband had scallops. They...More

Lovely breakfast, lunch, dinner and special event restaurant overlooking the dolphins which are less than 15 feet away. Hippo has a great Taco Bar on our second patio with all the toppings you can imagine. Fresh daily fish and lobster sold by the gram. Hand carved American Black Angus steaks cut to size.We have large screen TV's for sports events but keep the volume low so others can enjoy the ambiance. Free fresh popcorn and terrific cocktails and ice cold draft/bottled beers make Hippo a gem in Puerto Aventuras for all to enjoy.
