We came here as a last minute stop with our day excursion in Mexico and really enjoyed ourselves. The bartender was very nice and the food smelled delicious, although we didn't eat. It wasn't super packed, which we liked.

We were there with another couple and had a few margaritas and two type of tacos. Everything was great, the food, the drinks and the service. It's a small charming place on the locals side of town, away from the hotels and tourists. Well worth a stop in!

Meet the locals in this little rustic streetwise eatery. Experience 5 star hospitality with Rudy your wonderful host. Enjoy truly good tasty fresh meals good enough to compete with any classy uptown restaurant at 4 x the price! We ended up being regulars here.

If you're looking for a 'clean, quaint, homey type atmosphere in Mexico, then this bar/restaurant will do the trick. Gilbert, who is called Gilly by the regulars is a local who owns and operates the place, and he oversees your visit with his quality of food and service to ensure you get value for your money.

Found this little gem on TripAdvisor. Thank you to all you reviewed before us. Easy to find. When you turn onto the main street it is on the right side in the first few blocks.

On the other side of the highway, a small and autentic restaurant. Not very big, but Nice and good service. Good Food, more than enough Food and good value. Would not miss it if you are in town. Do not get the 5 stars because there is a few better Places in Akumal I would recommend before going here.
