 Great Restaurant for Seafood
The food is great, and the service is fantastic. They go out of their way to help Americans. Mauricio the manager is fantastic. He recommended food for us and went out of his way to serve us and help us feel comfortable.

 Amazing food, location and service
I was recently in Cancun with my family and I happen to have a friend from my childhood who currently resides in Cancun so we wanted to meet, have great food and be able to catch up. She suggested we come to this restaurant so we made the trek from Playa del Carmen to Puerto Juarez. My wife and I are travelling with three kids (9mo, 2 and 5 yrs) To begin with, the staff was amazing from beginning to end, help full, patient and super attentive. This place is on the water, with a fenced park (on the beach) with a very nice and friendly nanny who watches your kids while you dine, yes and it gets better. We order ceviche, shrimps, lobster and pasta/chicken strips (for the kids) seafood was super fresh and delicious, the desserts were super good too, the only weak part were the drinks which didn't have much alcohol. Overall, a great place to eat, family friendly and reasonably priced.

The staff was very helpful and polite. the Spanish menu was easy to understand with the help of the waiter. Our menus consisted of Oysters Rockefeller, Fresh Red Snapper, and scrimp. Say hello to lola, the greeter dog.

 Great Restaurant, and amazing staff to match
We only popped into Flamingos' as it was close to our apartment, but what a great move that was.The staff are great in helping if your Spanish isn't quite there, and their attention to detail on service is perfect. We ended up going 4 times over 3 days and would often find ourselves there at an end of night as a lot of local restaurants and bars close around 7.Fantastic dishes and views to match, I could not recommend enough if you are visiting the area

 The life changing my passion fruit margarita
I came to Cancun on a friend's reunion trip and we spent wonderful hours at Flamingos enjoying amazing food and service. The manager checked on us regularly to make sure we had the best experience possible. The wait staff was witty, kind, and responsive. You MUST have pulpo a la Lena (if you like octopus) the maracuya margarita, shrimp a la Lena. Did I mention a trampoline and playground for your kids with child care? Don't wait, come now.

 Superb!
Our host in Cancun recommended we try this restaurant near the condo we rented and we could not have loved it more! The beachfront location is gorgeous and relaxing, the service incredibly friendly and attentive, and the food delicious! We enjoyed the pulpo a la leña, pescado chiltepin, and camarones chiltepin on our first night and were so happy we just had to return the next night! The manager came by our table multiple times on both visits to make sure we had everything we needed. Oh, and the maracuya (passion fruit) margarita—on the rocks with chili salt—is to die for! I could easily see myself spending every day of my next visit lounging in one of Flamingo’s hammocks sipping one and enjoying the great atmosphere.

 Favorite restaurant we visited
The best shrimp I've had in my life. The service was incredible, very humble and sweet people that were willing to help anyway they could. The menu was in Spanish, however Mauricio the manager spoke perfect English and helped us pick the perfect entrees - 8 large grilled shrimp and vegetables (corn, sweet potato, red pepper, zucchini, and banana) for around $15. Incredible value for the Caribbean beach front atmosphere and the kindness shown by the staff. We finished our meal with a delicious corn cake dessert. We were so pleased with everything that at the end of the meal, we asked for business cards to pass out to friends we met at the hotel! Free wifi as well. There is a special surprise at the end of the meal, which what I thought was a mint, was actually a napkin that expanded with hot water. Try not to eat it ;)

 Impeccable service and FABULOUS Fresh Food!
The concierge Marina at our resort Villa Del Palmar, suggested this restaurant. A most fabulous restaurant that offers very fresh right out of the water seafood. They have a refrigerated room with all their fresh catch's of the day that you can choose from! There are also fresh live lobster and oyster tank's and the ambiance is fantastic, located right on the beach with open air and the string lights from palm trees are so romantic. There are lots of ceiling fans and one fan is mega huge so there is always a nice breeze and it's not too hot. I can't say enough about the staff! The service is perfection and the manager Mauricio, runs a very well trained staff. He is so very accommodating and you can definitely tell he has been in the business for a long time. The food was cooked perfect and the server spoke good english and explained all the food and the sauces, which were plentiful. I look forward to returning to this restaurant when we return!!! Tell the manager Maurico that Tara and John, The newly engaged couple sent you!!! :-)

 Excellent Food, Excellent Service!
We were recommended to this restaurant at our timeshare. This was an authentic Mexican restaurant. Although the menu was in Spanish, Mario came over and told us he spoke English and would be our waiter. He explained each dish and helped recommend an appetizer. We started with tostada with shrimp in a lime flavor. I had coconut shrimp with a pineapple sauce, and my husband had grilled shrimp with garlic. Each came with rice and vegetables, and his also came with roasted as well as sweet potatoes. Everything was delicious. The service was excellent!

 If Poseidon has a favorite place to eat, Flamingos must be it.
First, I get to the place by boat, they have a nice dock and seaside veranda with a beautiful view to Isla Mujeres, so the ambient is really nice.Very close second, the service is fully atentive and corteous.Even more very close second: Food, tasty, perfectly presented and generously served.No doubt to visit again when in Cancún.

 The best place for seafood with a Caribbean sea view!
This is one of the best places for seafood in Cancún. Is right after the place you take the ferry to go to Isla Mujeres. Everyone knows where is it, is beautiful, is clean, good prices, hight quality of seafood. But the best part of this restaurant is that is located by the most peacefull beach in town. You most go and have a great meal and nice experience by the caribbean ocean. As a Chef I recommended 100 %

 Worth a Trip
When you enter the restaurant, you step into the Caribbean world as Hemingway experienced it. The authentic decor of the place with the backdrop of Riviera Maya's turquoise waters set the stage for the best seafood we ever tasted - ceviche, octopus from the wood grill, and grouper Mayan style are some of our favorites (keep room for some scrumptious dessert.) The waiters and waitresses welcomed and spoiled us like celebrities. We will remember Pancheco, Orlando, Thomas, Jorge, and Antonio's smile. Mauricio, the manager, makes you feel at home, and you want to hang out, drink piña coladas, aguas frescas, and flamingos, the house's signature drink while your kids enjoy the trampolines, hammocks, and the beach.Don't leave Cancun without experiencing the Flamingo.

 Nothing but amazing!
My friend and I came to Cancun for the weekend. We stayed a little bit away from the hotel zone and randomly walked into this place, while going back to our guesthouse. We just came in to have a drink and ended up having dinner there. The food: I had black rice with seafood, which tasted very good (could use a hint more spice) and she had the steak, which was awesome. The Beach: I was in awe of the view we had overlooking while we ate, perfect for dinner. The service: just amazing!After dinner, we thought of just coming back in the morning to spend it at the beach. We talked to Mauricio (The manager) about reserving a spot for the morning, he took care of it right then and there. Came back the next day, we had everything already set for us! Thank you for such a great hospitality, you definitely set the standard! I'll be back!

Excellent food and service. Staff was wonderful and friendly. Made us feel very welcomed in Cancun. I would recommend to anyone looking to have a wonderful oceanfront meal with sophistication. We had entire wood grilled hog fish. The vegetables were delicious. All the chefs were really sweet and friendly. I loved this restaurant!

Flamingos is absolutely FABULOUS! From the open air dining and beautiful views to the best service and staff you can imagine and food that makes you wish you could go every day! We stayed close to Flamingos during our 3 week vacation in Cancun and we ate there many times and loved it! Mauricio, the manager, takes care of each of his customers like no other restaurant manager I have ever experienced and Thomas, our waiter, was wonderful. By the way, their Flan is out of this world!

From the food to the service, to the open air ocean views, don't miss this place. We were staying up the street and ended up dining here multiple times.We were on our honeymoon, and the manager, Mauricio, made sure we felt like it, at every opportunity. The atmosphere alone is enough reason to want to hang out here for hours on end. Then the hospitality, 5 star service all around. Finally the food, fresh fresh, and fresh. We tried the octopus cooked in its own ink lol, yum! My favorite was the coconut shrimp, delectable indeed. Do not miss this place! They truly gave us some wonderful memories!

 Coolest place ever
That's my 8-year old daughter's title for this review. Reason being is the dining area is open air next to the ocean, trampoline, swing and pond swimming pool where she played while we drank Piñata Coladas and discussed existential experiences and sand getting in all the wrong places. Great seafood and service. Ask for Mauricio to take care of you. Once he hears your taste, he'll steer you to a delightful memory. As my daughter would say - coolest place ever.

A friend recommended Flamingos to meet for dinner. She is a local and said it was her favorite seafood restaurant. I was not let down.Being in the customer service industry I can always tell when the service is genuine and the staff had been well trained in hospitality. My friend and I both ordered the largest two lobsters that were shown for our choosing.They were served with freshly grilled asparagus. An earlier review suggested I asked for the manager Mauricio. After a few minutes passed a very charming and charismatic gentleman came to our table to introduce himself. Mauricio is an example for his staff and he went out of his way to make this the best dining experience in Cancun.It's on a very secluded beach and had plenty of activities for the kids while the parents dine including a swimming pool and a trampoline. The ambiance was just perfect.The food was beautifully plated and delicious. I will recommend to all my friends. Oh yeah, go early and check out the Mayan pyramid El Meco across the street.

My family and I went there for dinner on Thursday night and we had a great time. The cocteles were to die for and the shrimp a las brazas too. Not to mention the service! Mauricio the owner drove my sister and her family back to the hotel and made sure we got an affordable taxi back to ours! I highly recommend this restaurant! Planning on going back this Thursday.

 Wonderful sauces and fresh seafood
Wonderful sauces and fresh seafood. We were really pleased to find a restaurant that had such a beautiful view of the water, great food and outstanding service. The manager was so nice he actually gave us a ride back to our hotel, although I doubt that would be possible during busy season. Flamingos is large enough to accommodate quite a few people. It is right on the water and you can sit on the beach or in the open air dining area. The rest rooms were very clean and nice, in fact everything was very nicely decorated and clean. The food was really excellent and fresh. I will make it a point of going back to Flamingos when I return to Cancun.

 We came for the food and stayed for 3 hours
We visited this restaurant on November 27, 2017 while we were staying at the nearby Villa de Plamar resort. We read all the reviews online and thought we were going to have a great meal. But it was much more than that. We had the fish platter for 3 which included a grilled octopus, fish fillet, two oysters, clams, shrimp, crab claws. We also ordered a large lobster tail and some extra oysters. A few margaritas and some mango tangos for the kids and desert ended up costing only US$140 before the tip. The is a much better deal for better food than many of the popular restaurants in Cancun. But the food was only part of the experience. As soon as we sat down the manager explained to us that during our stay there were two baby sitters available to take care of our kids and that we could use the pool and stay at the beach as long as we liked. The restaurant had a trampoline and a small playground with swings and such for the kids. Our kids were past the babysitter age, but they were there to keep an eye on the smaller kids and helping everybody out. There was a volleyball net there as well, and after dinner we spent two hours lounging in the hammocks and beach lounges. There was also a dock next to the restaurant for people to come there with boats. We walked on the dock and enjoyed to view into the ocean. In case you decide to take a swim after dinner there are showers and changing rooms there. The manager told us that he would drive us back to the hotel so that we don't get ripped off by a taxi. As we were preparing to leave, he came out of his office and made good on his offer. All he wanted in return was a review on Tripadvisor. So here is our way of thanking him for the ride and a fantastic experience.

 Unbelievable Lobster Tail
Second time having dinner at Flamingos. It has been renovated since I was there last. The renovations enlarged the dining area and included a glass walled room where you can see the chefs grilling your food over a wood fire. The lobster tail we had was close to 2 lbs. and fed three people with leftovers. Their seafood is very fresh and cooked to perfection. Staff was extremely attentive and friendly. They even have an outdoor playground for children.

 Fantastic dinner
We are staying nearby in a all inclusive hotel but wanted to sample local seafood this restaurant was absolutely the best place we could have chosen the restaurant itself is set on the beach front with sun beds shower and pool you could spend the day and I think we will next time because the FOOD IS FANTASTIC we had soft shell crab seafood stew lobster snapper steak there was 8 of us by the way ! It was a feast and at about £50 a head with wine beer soft drinks sides including 4 lobsters it was good value for money if your staying close by it’s a absolute must

  Simple the best
I have been coming for the past 5 months and every time is better than the last time, we had the garlic grill shrimp and that octopus on the grill also and both were amazing, they recommended that we try the squid in its ink and it was probably one of the best dishes we ever had. By far the best seafood restaurant in Cancun

 Fantastic Fish with Family-like Service in Outstanding Atmosphere
The plantation-style restaurant has a large and diverse fish market inside where the more adventurous can pick their dinner. You can't get fresher fish, and it's expertly prepared.The restaurant is very well run, by engaging and attentive staff.The setting is right on the sand of a beautiful beach. We were there after dark, but it's still a beautiful atmosphere.Photo is of our 6 year old eating the octopus she selected from the fish market, prepared to her specification.Written by a party of 5 from California, celebrating a birthday.

 Flamingo's does EVERTHING right!!
My experience with Flamingo's could not have been better. I was staying at a nearby resort and anxious to get out of it. I don't like resorts and I was hoping to find a restaurant by the sea with a view and good fresh seafood. I found Flamingo's in Playa Juarez (which is a little north of the hotel zone directly west of Isla Mujeres) and it was like finding gold!Flamingo's is popular with the locals and very family friendly. It is an open air restaurant on the beach with a gorgeous view and a nice sea breeze.I was greeted at the door by the manager Mauricio who should be teaching doctorate level courses in how to run a restaurant. He saw that I was American, greeted my warmly, and arranged to have one of his english speaking staff Tomas, served me. Mauricio is so genuine, and genuinely happy about what he does, that you immediately feel like he is a long time friend.I told Tomas I wanted fresh local seafood and so he brought out a tray with a huge lobster tail and a grouper on it. Lobster is sold by the gram and this one was too much for one person. The grouper caught my eye because it was so fresh - the eyes were completely clear. I asked to have it wood fired and asked for a margarita - bartender's recommendation - and soon had a concoction that was just the right balance of juice and tequila. Jorge stopped by with a huge smile and introduced himself as the captain of the restaurant and thanked me for coming. He said to ask for him if there was anything I needed and to enjoy my stay.The fish arrived plated on a banana leaf on a wood plate that looked like it was cut from a log and cured. It had been split and splayed for cooking and was presented that way on the plate It was spectacular! They love their seafood here and prepare it with respect. It was not overcooked and dry, it was not under-cooked. It was simply perfect. I also had a ceasar salad and the standard tortilla chips but the only thing that matters is the seafood and the drinks. It can't be done any better!Throughout the meal Tomas was completely unobtrusive and yet very attentive. Exactly what a waiter should be.After my meal I asked to speak Mauricio before I left. I thanked him for my evening and complimented him on his staff. Then I asked him if he could call a cab for me because the one the hotel arranged for me had grossly overcharged - $10 for a half mile ride. Mauricio said he would drive me to my hotel - and he did! As amazing as that is the great part was that he point to a gated waterfront house next to the restaurant and told me the fishermen have keys. They come in at 3:00 AM and upon return deliver their catch directly to Flamingo's. You can't get any fresher than that!All told I had a white clam appetizer, a salad, 2 margaritas, and the grouper. The bill was $40. Not cheap but certainly not expensive. When you combine the beautiful location, the perfect service, and the unbeatable fish - fresh as can be and prepared with respect - I consider it an absolute bargain. I will be certain to visit Flamingo''s every time I am in Cancun.

 loved this place; great service, great food!
This is a lovely place for fresh seafood right on the water! it is not at all touristy, so that made it even better. I had the flamingo salad to start, and it was outstanding; my husband had lobster bisque which was also delicious. we also ate grouper and shrimp, and they were both excellent. the staff is super attentive and the service was excellent. we took a cab from our hotel, which was a mile away and the manager actually drove us back when we asked for a cab!! how's that for superb service! highly recommend this place!

 You Can't Get Fresher Seafood !!!
Whether your staying in the Hotel Zone, Cancun Centro or Isla Mejures dining at Flamingo's Seafood Kitchen is a must. Located in the port area right on the water and near the ferry to Ilsa they turn out some of the freshest fish, shellfish and Ceviche' we have found. Try something from the wood burning grill - you'll be amazed. Quite busy on weekends try to drop in during the week, eat on the beach, swing in a hammock, kid friendly its not fancy and the prices are very reasonable.One of the Best in Cancun.

 Best Seafood Ever!!!! A MUST if visiting Cancun
My husband and I ate here three times in two weeks! And I could have eaten here every night, that GOOD!!! We had seafood every time! Loved the squid, shrimp, red snapper, and grouper! We had it cooked in the garlic and butter, all grilled! Also had the fried calamari which was very tasty! We enjoyed the rice, grilled plantains and grilled vegetables! The mashed potatoes were also great! The locals really enjoy this place, but it’s convenience in location to our hotel, Villa Del Parmar Cancun, made it the perfect restaurant for us!! We finally met the manager on our last visit and he was so wonderful! I had read several reviews about others getting such special help and attention from him! I was certainly not disappointed! He made this ole Tennessee girl feel right at home! He even took our picture! Thank you, Mauricio!! Larry and I look forward to visiting again soon! Please add this restaurant as a MUST if visiting Cancun! I cannot imagine any place any better!!!

I had the pleasure of visiting this gorgeous restaurant with my boyfriend tonight. The beautiful waves of the beach, authentic and delicious sea food, melodious Latino music and phenomenal staff, made our visit totally worth it ! Our server Thomas and manager Mauricio were super friendly and treated us like family! We had the wood grilled octopus, the shrimp with devil sauce and fried calamari. Everything left us licking our fingers! Would definitely come back and would highly recommend this place to everyone who visits Cancun!

We are staying at Villa del Palmer and heard about this restaurant. We were not disappointed from the moment we walked in and saw the fresh fish and live lobsters and live oysters. The manager and waiters Antonio were so helpful and courteous. We ordered Tequila and sangriata it is not sangria wonderful you get a shot,of each. We ordered a live lobster cooked over a wood fire and the freshest of fish cooked the same. Can't wait to go back. Don't be shy about the taxi ride there it is worth it, a young couple sitting next to us walked to the restaurant on the beach. That's another thing I forgot to mention the restaurant is on the beach and we had a beautiful view from our table.

 Very good restaurant, great service!
My wife and I ate there twice on our cancun vacation. We would say that overall the food is very good, and the service was great. Note there is no A/C at the restaurant, but you're right next to the beach and having dinner right next to the water was great. We really enjoyed talking to the staff, they were very friendly and we felt they did a great job. We would definitely recommend the place

Flamingos is a hidden gem. Great family friendly restaurant on the beach. It has a very open inviting and relaxing atmosphere. The restaurant specializes in wood fired mesquite grilled seafood. The staff is very courteous and friendly. The cocktails were great. The manager Maurizio took really good care of us. We loved the special green salsa that they served with chips so much that we ordered a liter of it to take back with us to New York. Will definitely come back on our next trip to Cancun.

 Great place
Our server at the resort recommended Flamingos and we are so thankful we got to dine here. We were warmly welcomed by Mauricio and even offered us tequila on the house. The service was great and so was the food. Loved the Salmon Carpaccio. I wish they would give their patrons real napkins rather than the very small paper napkins from the dispenser. I also wish their menus were in both Spanish and English. Their staff is also great. One of the staff offered us a ride to our hotel when no taxis became available. This shows how much they value their customer. Will definitely come back on our next visit.

 Terrific food and a great view of the ocean.
We are staying nearby in a all inclusive hotel but wanted local seafood. This restaurant was a great choice...terrific food and a great view of the ocean. We, (i.e., the three of us) had an appetizer (calamari) grilled shrimp, fish, and octopus with beer for less than $75 USD. If you are staying close by, this restaurant is an absolute must, put it on you list.

 It's ok.
I have visited this restaurant on July , 12th 2017. Local person has recommended me a few places where I could try fresh fish. I decided to start from Flamingo. I don't speak Spanish, but they found quickly an employee who had helped me to choose what to order. I ordered grilled fish. The waiting was not long , service was all right, maybe because I was alone and did not order drinks or other dishes. The dips and beans ( I forgot how to call those appetizers that are served in any Mexican restaurants) that are used to dip chips were very unappetizing- dried and looks like they were standing all day somewhere.The fish tasted good - tender and I like it, though the temperature of the fish was surprisingly cold. I was expecting hotter temperature for fish straight from the grill. I was offered to warm it up, but refused because don't think the fresh food in the restaurant would be fresh if it's warmed up.Leaving three stars because the fish itself was tasty , though next day I had way better experience in a different restaurant.Not likely to return.
