This is by far the best restaurant in the Akumal area. The menu has a fabulous variety of dishes. It is a great change of pace when you get sick of chips and guacamole. It is a romantic beach side setting (can be a bit...More

We had high expectations - it is supposed to be the best restaurant in the area (certainly the highest price). Our first time and we thought should it be a special occasion. We took friends who were visiting. Sadly, he ordered a Peruvian ceviche (terrible,...More

Overpriced, outdated menu, nice location in North Akumal. We had drinks, appetizers, and walked down the beach to La Buena Vida for dinner. I have nothing to recommend other than avoid this place. It's not terrible, however there are many better choices.

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

As we had read on some posts, La Lunita is expensive for a restaurant that has nothing special. The setting is nice on the beach but the food is just ok, for a higher price that some other restaurants on the same beach.

Lunch at this restaurant was part of our tour package with Your Private Tour and we enjoyed it thoroughly. I had the fish ceviche (and also tried my husband's shrimp ceviche with coconut milk). Both were great appetizers, very flavorful and fresh. My 10-year old...More

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.
