Enjoyed the pitchers of margaritas on the patio, the musicians in the restaurant, and the fabulous broiled fish of the day! Good value (and good margaritas!).

We ate here on our first night in town. Large place but good, friendly service and wonderful vibe. I had some of my best fish in Akumal here as did my son and husband. They go out daily and they serve what they catch. You...More

Chairs are the most uncomfortable you can imagine, tables at awkward heights/levels, food is exceedingly ordinary and service pretty spotty. We went here expecting much more from a Tripadvisor 4-5 star reviewed locale and were somewhat disappointed, from no lobster being available to no tortillas...More

I had their mixed ceviche appetizer, fish shrimp and octopus. They brought a large plat, it was enough for 2 or 3 people. I struggled to finish it by myself, worth every bite. A very healthy and tasty dish.

They are all good but this one here is amazing. A pitcher of Margaritas on the rocks and the fish platter for 2 will absolutely make your holiday

We enjoyed the music here one afternoon. Service was okay. Food was just okay. Not sure why this place is so popular except it’s a good place for a drink when there is musical entertainment.

One of the only locally Mexican owned businesses in Akumal! This place can be found on the left after crossing the arches as you enter the beach side of town. At night, Christmas lights keep the place aglow and easy to find. The food is...More

The atmosphere here is great. There were excellent live musicians performing while we had our pitcher of margaritas. The margaritas were very good. Ordered the fish and seafood plate for 2 and it was really enough for 4 people. Very tasty.

Not sure. They seemed to be closed in the morning, and we have dined there fairly late (around 8-9 PM). We have never needed reservations. Hope that helps.

La Cueva Del Pescador is a good spot for an amazing Mexican dinner, with the prices on food and drinks being quite reasonable. That being said it isn't really a party and nightlife type set up. Heading down to Playa Del... More
