Food was excellent but service was extremely slow :( There were 3 tables of customers but only 2 people working? Not sure if this is the normal day but waited 40 minutes for our order.

Me and my partner have been staying in Mexico for a week now and this little cosy restaurant in Akumal provided us with the best meal we have had here. I absolutely recommend :) The chicken Enchiladas are awesome!

Imelda's place has some of the best fish tacos ever! They are fried and super simple, fish with a side of rice, beans, tomatoes, onions, and spicy sauce. We went back twice!

This place is still great. We took the whole family back this month and my daughter's grand-mother (in-law) is Mexican. She got the chicken enchiladas and said they were the best she has ever eaten. The fish tacos were SO good and good sized portion....More

Very small and local place run by mother and daugther. Exellent shakes and dishes for breakfast and lunch at very reasonabel prices. Much better that the big resaturants on the beach.

Best local food around. Hands down. Loved it. Nicest people too. Very helpful. We came unannounced with a party of 18 and they bent over backwards to accommodate. Much appreciated.

This is my favorite local place to eat in Akumal. Delicious food especially the fish tacos! Imelda makes all the food from scratch herself. It's her own flavors and recipes. The prices are the best as well. I could literally eat here for every meal....More

Delicious affordable lunch, don't miss their fish tacos and wonderful guacamole! We spent the whole trip comparing every fish taco we ate to the ones we had here.
