Very sad no longer a dining option in Akumal. Heard she moved to Merida, so maybe she opened a restaurant there. If anyone knows, please share. The food here was amazing.

This is, unfortunately, closed now. They used to have amazing lion fish tacos, but the owner moved away.

Owner is a personal friend so I'm probably a bit biased... great food and service.. We received exceptional service and many visits dishes that weren't on the menu

Having heard that this was THE place to join the fight against reef depredation and eat lionfish, we decided to do our bit. It would have been better had the food not been practically inedible. The owner seemed personally insulted when we were unable to...More

We missed eating a Gynn AK last year, so were eager to try it when we returned to Akumal this month. Although the sign said best deal in Akumal, it was the most expensive meal we had there. The menu had no prices the night...More

I can honestly say the lionfish fillet with thai/mex fusion is one of the best meals I have ever had in my life. Yes...the place looks like a dive...mismatched tables, dirt floor, dogs under the table. But...then your food arrives, and all you can think...More

Gynna told me a couple of months ago that this was going to be her last season due to a landlord problem. Unfortunately, I think things may have come to an end. As I passed her place tonight half of the front of the place...More

Stopping by Gynn'Ak and having the lionfish tacos is a must-do if visiting Akumal or Half Moon area. Don't miss it!

Altho this restaurant is listed in Cancun, it actually is on the main road across from Half Moon Bay in Akumal, Mexico. It is newly opened and has excellent, inexpensive food. Gina, who runs the restaurant makes the best guacamole this side of Guadalajara & her pita rellenos are the best! She is open from 12 noon to 8 p.m. and also delivers! What more could you ask for! Enjoy this delicious menu without leaving the beach!
