Our food was very good. The restaurant is in a gorgeous setting The only problem was with the waiter. He was very nice, but his English was poor. This made ordering a little difficult. All in all, I enjoyed this restaurant.

It didn't disappoint, excellent place. It is touristy, but still offers a very nice food. Creative menu twist on classic Caribbean seafood cuisine (fresh ingredients , try lobster ) . Great for big groups or just romantic dinner for two. It is fairly pricy.

I went here 17 years ago and always remembered it for the best prepared lobster that I ever had. It still holds true. Grilled to perfection!

I made the reservation based on reviews on TripAdvisor for my son and daughter in laws 3rd wedding anniversary while we were on vacation in Cancun. Once we ordered and got one drink our server was non existent. He went to get us more drinks and never came back. The food was mediocre at best and the portions were small. I ordered a seafood dish made with rice thinking it would be similar to a paella. It was soupy and you'd be hard pressed to find lobster, scallops or fish in it. My husband had lobster, my daughter in law had shrimp and my son had seafood tacos. We each had 2 drinks and shared 2 appetizers. Our bill was almost $400 American. The waiter then tacked on a 1000 peso tip. By the time we got out of there the bill was close to $500 American. Skip this tourist trap and ask the locals where they go. And while they offered up singing to 3 different tables while we were there, they never said anything about the anniversary. They alligator, Lorenzo, was the friendliest staff there. Stay away!

The request for a waterside table was honored without any problem for lunch. The Caesar salad made table side was as good as I remembered it to be. The shrimp was very good but the side of spinach was funky and had a weird taste. The spinach is the only thing I wouldn't get again. It was a very pricey lunch but I knew that going in. It is definitely a special occasion place for me. You can't beat the water view. The little birdies are cute and not aggressive with stealing your food.

Sin lugar a dudas uno de los mejores restaurantes que hemos visitado. Lo conocemos de años y SIEMPRE concluimos del mismo modo. En verdad vale mucho la pena visitarlo. Un poco caro, pero cuando en la visita resulta todo perfecto. El costo no tiene importancia. Felicidades!

We picked this restaurant based on the reviews here and on TripAdvisor. The caesar salad (prepared tableside) was excellent. We also enjoyed the crab cakes. Otherwise, the food was unimpressive and/or inedible. The "local grouper" had the consistency of London broil, and yes, I know how grouper is supposed to taste. Our scallops were delivered to the table raw. The lobster thermador was decent, but it seemed the kitchen just used extra cheese to mask the flavor problems in the dish. The staff was great, but that did not compensate for the mediocre food. I cannot in good conscience recommend this restaurant.

Had a great round table for party of 7. Only drawback was heat from staff leaving outside door open behind table. Chilean sea bass delicious but too pricey. $60 + versus $25+ for local grouper. We had apps, entrees and dessert plus cocktails. A great evening!!
