We went to la lunita based on the recommendations, pro: it's a beautiful spot, and we felt no pressure from the servers to rush to leave.

They serve the most innovative food in Akumal. We especially love the tuna tacos and their frites are really good too, however they were supposed to come with truffle mayo but we were only offered ketchup. The tortilla chips come with pico de gallo and warm beans which is a very nice addition.

We ate here several times recently and enjoyed eating on the beach in a beautiful atmosphere with consistently delicious food. The mojitos were a family favorite as well as the coconut orange salmon, tortilla soup, and pad thai. We appreciated the quality of the food, atmosphere, and service.
