Nice location set up high. Helps catch the breeze and keep the place slightly cooler. Opted for 2 pizzas. Both arrived quickly (wasn’t very busy as early and out of season). Both were very good, nice crispy base and good toppings.

Taverna Akumal was my restaurant of choice when I stayed nearby. Each time I visited, I ordered seafood, and came to really enjoy their squid salad. There was never any problem.
