“Friendly, VERY inexpensive and tasty”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

I was in Cancun last week for 8 nights with my family, and we ate here 3 times. We enjoyed the food, and enjoyed the company of the server Julio Cesar. It was close enough from our hotel to walk here, and it was an incredible bargain. Here are the details:
We discovered this place because we were looking for Habaneros, a well-rated restaurant here on Tripadvisor. These two places are like clones, literally side-by-side. They are both good, but we liked Tacun better.
For starters, it can be a little difficult to find. It is across the street from the Flamingo Plaza mall. This mall is connected to Margaritaville and Bubba Gump, which are two places that really stand out so you can see them from the bus. If you go to the opposite end of the mall from these two places you will see a convenience store called Xtra, a bank called Banorte, and pharmacy with a sign that simply says Farmacia. Directly across the highway from these three are these two nondescript places with Habanaeros on the right (red tables) and Tacun on the left (white tables). These are SMALL places - I think they had maybe 4 or 5 tables total.
Tacun's menu is very short - maybe 4 to 6 items total. Everything is authentic Mexican food and delicious. Be sure to ask about specials. Julio and his pals were very creative and tried to have a few specials every night. One night they had T-bone steaks for example (we didn't try it). They have sodas and water for beverages, no alcohol. They have chips and salsa, and freshly made Guacamole for an appetizer. They also had dessert which was nice - although the food is so filling you may not have room. I love a good piece of chocolate cake, and the cake there is extremely good - served with a few fresh strawberries on your plate. The pieces were good-sized, we shared a piece per each two people.
We thought the food was great. We especially like our sociable host. Give it a try! I recommend it. It is also an incredible bargain. Dinner for 4 or 5, even with dessert, never topped $25 total.

“Absolutly fantastic!”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Great service and food! We had all inclusive at our hotel and took the bus 15 minutes away to eat here twice. It would have been much more often if we hadn't found it 2 days before we left. It's a small place u could miss if not careful,but be sure not too!

“Great Food, Great People”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

My wife and I ate there several times during our 5-day trip to Cancun. Cesar, Eloy, and the whole staff were extremely helpful and courteous. The food was delicious, especially the fish and the shrimp tacos. Most nights they had specials, but we always arrived too late because they ran out fast.

If I ever visit Cancun, I will definitely pay a visit to these guys.
