Cancun is surrounded by water, so its the perfect place to find top-notch seafood restaurants, as well as charming little, inexpensive seafood eateries that are right on the water. You'll always be served the freshest fish, lobster, shrimp, etc., simply because of Cancun's seaside location.
Fred's House Seafood Market and Grill is a first class restaurant that provides stunning views of Nichupte Lagoon and delicious cuisine. Lorenzillo's, Harry's Prime Steakhouse & Raw Bar and Navios are other upscale restaurants that serve some of the finest seafood dishes in Cancun. All of these restaurants are perfect for a special occasion, but you are not expected to dress to the nines, snappy casual is fine. If you want to dine in flip-flops, Los de Pescado and Fish Fritanga serve up fresh seafood in a casual atmosphere. El Cejas, one of Cancun's oldest and most popular seafood restaurants, is a local favorite located in downtown Cancun in Market 28. Capitan's Cove, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. and Mocambo, all located in the Hotel Zone, are relaxed and laid-back plus you'll find tasty seafood at all three establishments.
All of the seafood restaurants on our list are family-friendly, but children will probably have the most fun at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. and Fish Fritanga simply because they both have a play area on the premises which will keep them entertained while mom and dad have a cocktail or two before dinner.
