Restaurants of Akumal
A Candid Review of Akumal's Eateries
on Akumal Bay Our
favorite! The Beach Bar has a large palapa style outside dining
area surrounded by palms with a great ocean view and
cool ocean breeze. The menu offers a wide selection
of well prepared foods. For more elegant dining, the
main dining area offers a beautiful indoor dining room
and a full menu. Their breakfast is a delight. The
staff are friendly and helpful. Friday Happy Hour is a Local's Favorite. The Lol-Ha Pizzeria offers freshly baked pizzas. Located on the
right just inside the arch in central Akumal.
Buena Vida, "The Good Life" This
restaurant has a gorgeous view of Half Moon Bay. The
shrimp tacos are wonderful! The beach bar has
swings instead of bar stools. A fun “night life” place that
rocks from Happy Hour to closing everyday. Wednesday is karaoke night. Dining on the beach or upstairs in the dining room. They have a gift shop across the street with some fun stuff for sale. It's located
on the beach road in the north of Akumal.
de Pescador, "The Cave of the Fisherman"--Freshest fish in Akumal! Pescador is a seafood restaurant offering local fresh seafood caught by their own boats daily. Grouper, Red Snapper, Boquinete (a local favorite), Atun (Tuna) and Dorado (Mahi Mahi) are usually available depending on the season. It
is owned by Carlos Danú, a professional fisherman in Akumal since 1982, who for a fee
will take you fishing and cook your catch for dinner! We have fished with Carlos several times. Always fun and inexpensive compared to the States. Book fishing trips at the resturant. Located
