After spending 12 days in Puerto Juarez, we discovery this restaurant. We had lunch and came back the next day for pizza. Both meals were delicious. Nice atmosphere and good service. This is a must try if you are in the area.

Inexpensive good food and friendly staff. Alejandro was polite and very helpful in menu selection. Reccomendation for family with kids or couples. MUST like fish. Pizza available but your choices are shrimp, lobster, octopus or combo of all the above. Highly recommended.

This restaurant is just great. It was the first one that my friend and I went to when we made it to our hotel in Mexico. It sits on the beach and also has an inside portion which is just great in terms of vibes, photography, and overall satisfaction of being somewhere in paradise. The food is also very good... More

We are always looking for more out of the way places to eat and found this restaurant near the ferry terminal on Puerto Juarez. There is indoor and outdoor dining. We chose outdoor next to the beach. They had beach lounges available if you wanted to stay and hang out on the beach and/or swim. The pirate ships are docked... More

This restaurant located close to the ferry terminal is a great place two sit by the beach, order a cold beer and get some shrimp ceviche. The rest of the food is not bad, but I would just get the ceviche. Sometimes, the pirate ships dock there. So, you get a great picture opportunity. See picture.

Not many restaurants in Puerto Juarez to choose from, Mandinga being one of the best ones. It's located on the beach right opposite the monstrosity that is the Hook cruises (mock pirate ships). Loads of locals eat here, which is a good sign. I had a very good octopus salad, and not so good (very greasy) fried plantain.

Mandinga was very busy when we visited.The whole fried fish my husband ordered was overcooked ,although he was delighted with it as it came with tortillas,sallad etc so he could make fish tacos. My stuffed mero with seafood was very average.The worst of all is the prawn cocktail served in some sweet ketchup sauce.Since the bill took ages to come... More

Mandinga has been a favorite of mine the entire 15 years I have been in Cancun. The food is always tasty. The service is excellent. Waiters are more than polite and the view toward Isla Mujeres is enchanting. The restrooms are clean, even if small. Relax and enjoy an afternoon at Mandinga!

We walked from the Ferry Landing to the Restaurant, at most a 10 minute walk, and had a great shrimp dinner. The hosts and waiters were charming, special thanks to Asidro, Evans, and Antonio! A three piece guitar group came in and added to the ambiance plus they knew my favorite songs! Food was very reasonable and delicious! My husband... More
