I love the overall feel of this restaurant. Good music was playing and it was some of the best Ceviche I've ever had. I will be back to this restaurant.

We went here twice. The drink and food prices are fair. The first night, they had a band...and then the band asked for tips. This seems the norm in touristy areas. The service was good.

We visited here a lifetime ago in early March, before the COVID-19 pandemic. “Pescaditos” are fish sticks in Spanish, and of course they’re on the menu! But they have so many other good things here too: shrimp various ways, soups, crab tacos, stuffed jalapeños, ceviches...of different seafoods and pastas. There are some vegetarian options on the menu. The atmosphere is casual and the place has a music theme (there’s a photo of Frank Zappa near the restroom and there’s a “Pescaditos” mural that looks curiously like the cover of Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’). When we ate here for dinner, they had live entertainment too. The food is delicious, the service is very good and the prices are inexpensive. The menu is in Spanish and English. I can’t wait to come back. For what it is, it deserves 5 stars.More

This was the first restaurant we ate arriving on the city. The place doesn't look fancy but the ceviche was the best I've ever have that's why the following night we came back again for more. The green juice was very refreshing. Service was prompt...and friendly.More

A nice quiet local establishment with good food. My wife loved the ceviches. I had tacos, which were tasty, but not what I was expecting. They were fried, so very greasy to eat... but mmm. They were good. There was a live musician performing. He...was quite talented and pleasant to listen to. All in all, definitely worth stopping in if you’re in the downtown area. But it’s not a destination if you have to go far.More

The wife and I have come here twice on our trip because we loved the food and the atmosphere. Location: This place is in the downtown area of Cancun. You can take the R-2 Bus and exit closest to Park Las Palapas. Pescaditos- Fried fish...was cooked with slightly under-heated oil I think as I'm used to extremely crunchy fried fish. The flavor was perfect as it was seasoned well and was not over-salted like majority of the restaurants in Cancun. Less to me is better as I can always add and not remove salt. Camaron Ceviche- Probably the best I've tasted in Cancun. The tomatoes, onion and Cilantro are diced fairly small allowing a good mixture of flavor when eating. This allows you to perfectly assemble your ceviche on a tortilla chip and add a line of Mayo and a splash of Valentina and your set. The shrimp is very tasty and fresh, and the mixture is perfectly assembled with a generous helping of shrimp. Portions seems good, and I left feeling stuffed. Pulpo Ceviche- Definitely a very good choice as well. I did notice it didn't seem like it had as much lime added to the mixture, but was still satisfying nonetheless. I did notice that it didn't seem as if the portions were as generous as they were with the shrimp, but it was still very good. I would still order this as the flavor was on point. Guacamole- Fresh is definitely the first word that comes to mind. This isn't your run-off-the-mill taqueria guac that is mixed in with calabacita that waters down the guacamole, this is much much thicker. This went great with the chips as well as adding as a topper on the Ceviche. Green Juice and Jamaica were both refreshing options for drinks. They both are not extremely sweet making them great alternatives to drinking sodas. They come in either a glass or a pitcher. With crazy humidity, and heat, I would probably order a liter just for myself next time since I drank two glasses for myself this time. Live music was available at night. It was great, the performers were awesome. It definitely sets a mood for the night when you have live music over just a stereo playing. Price: Everything here is very affordable. I eat and drink way to much, so me paying a tab of less than $30 is amazing. Overall: I would definitely recommend this place to my friends that enjoy seafood. They have a limited menu, which to me is a good thing. They make fewer items, stock fewer ingredients, and have FRESH options. The food speaks for itself, and it is usually very popping. This is a hidden gem that is off the beaten path. If you find yourself venturing to this side of town, it's definitely worth stopping by.More

We went there every evening for a whole week without getting disappointed. Staff was nice, the owner was nice amd live music every evening. Awesone seafood - ask for the whole red snapper (not on the menue) and make sure to try the fishsoup as...well as the grilled shrimps and the cream filled chilis. 10/10 would recommend!More

We felt bad that we discover this place the very last night we were in Cancun. The service was a bit of a mess, and the guys playing music were horrible. But we all (kids included!!!) loved their food, and that's why we were there...for. The food was extremely fresh, clearly prepared on demand, perfectly crispy and tasty as expected.More
