I loved the food there and the service, they have excellent food. I truly recommend the Ceviche Yucatan. The view is impeccable.

We had an amazing meal. Seafood empanadas, lobster, risotto, tuna, and mixed fried seafood in a very light breading. Several delicious drinks. An accommodating waiter. Serving sizes were ample. I say this because there are some complaints here about pricing. There is no way we...would have had this level of cooking for $55 USA per person, including a generous tip for the gentleman who waited on us, where we come from. And certainly not with this view! Don't go expecting a bargain just because it's Mexico. Make a reservation- it's easy. You will leave happy (and full).More

Wow Wow Wow LaLunita was a fantastic experience! The view and outdoor tables in the sand felt so relaxing as we listened to the waves and watched the sunset and moonrise. Gorgeous! 😍😍 Service was TOP NOTCH and they went the extra mile to check...with the kitchen to accommodate our need for gluten and dairy free. Def went way out his way to make sure health needs were cared for. Exceptional! Friend had shrimp paella and I had Sesame crusted Tuna. Beautifully prepared and very tasty. Chips and guac were the best we had in Mexico. And flourless choc cake and ice cream, plus drinks. All were just perfect! We would def come again. Not cheap but worth every penny, truly. Tips are not included but are only given in cash. So don’t forget to take care of a server if they are excellent like ours was. Well deserved!More

Love the atmosphere and service. Food needed some revising, boring and not very flavorful. Martini didn’t have any alcohol in it or so little I couldn’t tell. can’t beat.the outdoor ambience with the moon and stars out. Atmosphere

We have eaten at La Lunita several times over the last 5 years, and while we love the restaurant, food and simple oceanside ambience, we weren't happy with the pricing this last visit. We used to feel that we got incredible value at La Lunita,...but at this point the prices are so high that we're beginning to feel underwhelmed by it. We noticed prices significantly raised at most places during this last trip, andd La Lunita was no exception. We didn't feel that our meal was worth the price that we paid.More

Apparently if you don't have a reservation, you will be treated to bad service. At least the drinks came fast. We waited close to an hour for our food after we ordered. Never did we see our server. When the food finally came out first...bites were cold. Warm may have been acceptable at this point in time. No one was in sight to tell them this. It was apparent this was not the kitchens problem. The restaurant was not busy and our server only has us as a customer. I'm not sure the food would have tasted any better if it were hot. 4 meals, 4 cold meals, 4 very unhappy customers. We finally got to talk to a manager. He apologized and took 10% of the bill. Never asked for that! It was a slap in the face for a highly disappointing dining experience. $18 usd isn't going to change the experience. What would have changed it would have been a server who paid attention to his customers. Still kicking myself in ass for leaving this guy any resemblance of a tip. There are better places to dine in Akumal. Taverna, La Buena Vida and Turtle Bay to name a few. All gave exceptional service and high-quality food.More

We have been coming to La Lunita for years. It has always been one of our favorite special occasion restaurants. Tonight was a total disaster and will not return. The food was sub par: lobster tacos were tough, T - bone (off menu special) was...thin and tough , like a Salisbury steak. A customer allowed his children to crawl around under our chairs Later the child was crying and having a tantrum. The parents did nothing. I brought this to the attention of the restaurant and they did nothing. When approaching the family the dad later accosted me and yelled profanities at me while the restaurant staff watched. Although the staff later apologized, it was too late. I felt unsafe and the food honestly was not worth the challenge.More

The food was good. The wait staff was also good. The pricing was very expensive in comparison to the food and location!! For instance a bottle of water was 90 peso’s. Dinner for two, A hamburger, fish tacos, 2 bottles of water and 1 small...dessert shared = $1000 peso’s! Word to the wise, be sure to apply lots of bug spray!!! We were covered in mosquito bites!More

We had a nice Christmas Day meal, but then noticed 2 extra drinks at the bottom of the bill. These were removed, but the server then had the temerity to remind us that the bill doesn’t include the tip. She had to be reminded that...adding extra items to the check is not good service. So, check the bill if you eat here.More

This place is one of the few places available in Akumal. We were not sure if it was open as it was raining pretty hard . We tried calling a few times to the number listed on their pages, but no one ever picked up....We decided to drive to another location , and on our way out we noticed this place was actually open. So we stopped at la lunita. The food was good , the drinks were good . Parking was fine and we were attended to as soon as we arrived. ( the place was not busy at all ) I would return, I just cannot give it a 5 star for the reason that there was a full staff and no one picked up our phone calls to verify it was open . The region is filled with outdoor restaurants which are known to close in heavy rain.I’m sure they are losing customers for not picking up their phone.More

The food, and chef Tony are fantastic. The wait staff treats you nice when they know you’re a first time visitor. When they know you’re here long term or permanently, you’re treated with indifference.
