Seafood in Cancun

La Hibichuela is our favorite restaurant in Cancun. But we have a lobster fanatic going with us this year: so any recommendations would be helpful.

I am thinking of Lorita Joe's or Lorenzillios? Please advise.

  1. I just got back from Cancun and ate at Lorenzilllios. My wife's tuna tartare and my gouper were very good. They definitely had lobster and other shellfish but it was very expensive. For example 4 langistino appetizer for $35. It did not seem wiorth it to me. We really liked Puerto Madera, not only for truly delicious steaks but really great fish. Whole fish grilled with herbs then split and fillleted.

    1. There was this one place I went to, I think it's called Captain's Cove; not really sure, it's next to a place called Pancho and WIlly's I think. Either way they had the most amazing lobster enchiladas I've ever tasted. They were extremely rich and so filling I couldn't finish, if you like mexican food, and you like lobster, check that place out.
