Went there for lunch at 1 o'clock in the afternoon and had tacos on the beach. The sirloin tacos were very very good. My boys had shrimp tacos that they really like also. They have a happy hour from 3 to 5 everyday with two-for-one...More

Return to La Lunita because it was so good. We have made at least 6 trips to Akumal and La Lunita is one of our favorite restaurants. Small, quiet and located on Half Moon Bay it is a great place to have lunch or dinner....More

We were on our way to Yal-ku lagoon and stopped at this restaurant for lunch. The food was comparatively expensive and wasn't that great. I guess it pays for the beautiful view of Akumal beach. Eat there if you have to... See pics for menu...More

This is a simple place located in a beautiful setting, right on the beach. The food was delicious, the view amazing, the margaritas great.....we came back two nights later, because it was walking distance from our apartment.

I think it is still on the menu, but not 100% sure. We ate there twice and the food was great, even with special orders.

Don't think they allow you to bring your own wine into the restaurant. Personally this is one of the most expensive places to eat in Akumal, and for the price the portions are small.
