    We always enjoy Fish Fritanga especially Friday nights with the live music. We have been going there for the past 15 years when they were much smaller. Last night we had guacamole, shrimp ceviche, skirt steak fajitas which are better than the more expensive fancier restaurants. We will keep going back at least once or twice each time we are in Cancun.

    I do believe the place is overpriced and the food we had was hit and miss. Really recommend the soft shell crab tacos as they were super nice. The seafood risotto was horrible, it had cream in it which I’ve never seen in a risotto before, let alone a seafood one. The fish soup is super tasty but it was a bit salty and I usually like to eat quite salty. The best thing about this place is the service, the waiters were amazing.

    This place gets better every time we go. They had a fantastic live band last night and the food was great! It was pouring rain for a bit and we stayed perfectly dry under the palapa. Will come here every time we are in Cancun!

    Locals told us this was a solid and relatively inexpensive place to eat. Food was okay. Orange shrimp was excellent as was shrimp wrapped in bacon (cannot remember name). Pasta in vodka sauce was bland (do not get!). Waiters were very attentive. Good place with a low key vibe.

    It has been 7 years since we first tried El Fish Fritanga. We are pleasantly surprised on how quaint this restaurant remained through the years. Tables on the sand, with little small huts near the water. It was somewhat updated with a DJ booth and updated lights for the huts. The service was excellent. Venustiano was our waiter and he provided very good recommendations on the food and the drinks, We ordered the special seafood platter for 2 that had fish, octopus, calamari, shrimp 2 ways, rice, vegetable, plantains and grilled pineapple. There was enough for 4 people. All the food was excellent but the standout was the Octopus and the bacon wrapped shrimp (we take out the cheese on top). I have never really like octopus but this was by far the best I have eaten. We finished the whole thing. It was our anniversary and they surprised us with a delicious chocolate mousse cake with sparklers. Very customer focused, and very much appreciated. We went on a Friday night and they had a very good band playing. The singers were fantastic. We wished we could have stayed later but we had to go back to the hotel and pack. Highly recommend this place, especially for seafood. Great Service, Delicious Food, great views of the water, and dining on the sand. The prices are ridiculously reasonable. Must try at least once during your vacation.

    Pedro was outstanding - very attentive and helpful. The drinks were excellent- mojitos, tamarind margaritas and caipirinha. The guacamole and calamari were well made with fresh ingredients. We had tuna tostadas, grilled shrimp, stuffed fish and the shrimp filet. All were satisfied and enjoyed the meals. We would go again.

    We’ve eaten here 2 times once for dinner and once for breakfast. Both times were delicious but I’d have to say I enjoyed the breakfast better. It was cooler weather since it’s in the morning and the food was so delicious. We shared a fruit plate and it was wonderful. The jalapeño eggs were fabulous. For dinner the tacos were good and the tuna tuna tostada was great. The orange chicken was good too but a little rich for me anyways. It tasted good but I had “issues” later. The waiters are nice. Parking is a nightmare so come early for your reservation. All it all we loved it!

    This place really get the fried fish right, order as many food as you can eat and no need to worry the price too much. Service is nice but some room can improve ( maybe food is too good make me expecting Michelins standard). Very recommended and I will return when I am in Cancun every time.

    We were very disappointed with this restaurant! We made a reservation for their so called fixed price special breakfast experience and what we got was just their every day menu ! Nothing special at all ! The food was good but nothing I’d make a special trip back for ! I feel this was a bait and hook attempt on the part of This restaurant! There were very few people at this restaurant!
