Not far away from the ferry port, this restaurant on the sandy beach is quite a favourite for many locals and well as tourists. Quite an ambiance with local musicians playing lively Mexican tunes. Home-made salsa, tortillas are there to tease your appetite while you are waiting of the order to arrive. Fish is caught in the morning by the family and you can actually ask your waiter to pick your catch of the day by physically checking out what they have and having it grilled / deep-fried to your liking. The fleet of boats is just there along the shore and pelicans are waiting for some give-aways - making a perfect photo opportunity when they get fed. To make things clear, the place is pretty simple with distinctive character of its own and local coloring - tables are plastic and floor is sandy))), so go there for authentic local feel and fresh catch.

Has strong competition with Velasquez and Pincos, however the quality of the cevice wins the crown for Minino's.

Love love love the cevichi. Don't plan to go on Sunday because there is a large local party and I am pretty sure they prefer visitors not partake. Can't blame them.

Minino's has the best grilled lobster tail with garlic butter on the island. Prices are very reasonable. Tables are on the sand so you can squish your feet in the sand while you eat. Overlooking boats and Cancun, great, casual meal.

This turned out to be a great little place with the freshest seafood, sea bass, red snapper, grouper, etc. all caught fresh that day. They offer seating inside but we chose to eat outdoors, right on the beach next to the fishing boats. My girlfriend ordered a hand mixed margarita and I ordered a Corona. Both were delivered quickly and then we placed our food order. My girlfriend had the filet of seabass and I had the filet of grouper. Both arrived pretty quickly, served piping hot and delicious.The bill ran less than $20 USD for the two of us including the drinks. The setting, right on the beach, was very romantic. This isn't a five, four, or even three star restaurant. Its a local Mexican place catering, it seemed, to families, tourists, and locals alike. It isn't fancy but if you're looking for fresh, fresh, fresh and at a bargain price, you'd be hard pressed to beat it.
