We were excited to eat Lionfish, but food was just not good. The setting was not nice and the food was worse. There is virtually no menu, just lionfish taco's and burgers, you can't even get a soda. Perhaps Lionfish is hard to prepare and...More

Overpriced, small portions, sit in a gravel park lot next to the street under a falling down palapa or tent. Originally this was a neat local place with local food. The cook got a big head and tried to get fancier. How much is enough...More

My family of 4 ate dinner at Gynn'AK while visiting Akumal in December and were disappointed in the Lion Fish tacos. Note that we had eaten lunch there a few years back and were wowed by them. The newer chef changed what was an awesome,...More

My husband and I had a great evening at this very small (seats 20?) restaurant, in the middle of half moon bay. It's a husband and wife affair, with a limited menu centered around lion fish, with a Thai/mex fusion and whatever they feel like...More

We should've know by the lack of business that this place was bad but were tired and hungry from traveling all day. Warning number two was the lack of menus or prices. We were assured by the chef/ owner that everything was tasty but soon...More

Gynn’AK Though the setting leaves a bit to be desired, the food at Gynn’AK is not to be missed! Everything was served fresh and, as we were the only diners, the service was excellent. I opted for the Lionfish fillet with Thai slaw: Much tastier...More

Very small, outdoor cafe that serves mostly lionfish dishes. It is billed as a Thai-Mexican fusion restaurant and that hold true. We had four different dishes and all were amazing. From a lionfish filet to Thai lionfish tacos, it was unique, fresh, and very flavorful....More

If this place were on the ocean side of the road instead of the jungle side, and if the owner would decorate it a little more to look like a restaurant, then this place would be a bigger hit. I loved the vegetarian pad thai....More

This is an authentic local dining experience; the layout an ecclectic and comfy mix, seating is outdoors but in the shade, complete with the muy simpatico resident mutts who seems to enjoy fish at least as much as the patrons. :-p The lion-fish is very...More

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!
