Top 10 Mexican food in Chetumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico

September 2, 2019 Jacquiline Darosa

Reviews on Mexican food in Chetumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico. Gateway to Belize, Tikal in Guatemala and the numerous Río Bec ruins, Chetumal is the capital of Quintana Roo state. Buses connect major cities, including those in Belize. Rental cars cannot be taken through the Belize border. The busy city's old town boasts a Caribbean feel. The excellent, interactive Museo de la Cultura Maya offers fascinating insights to those planning to follow the dramatic Río Bec ruin route. The vine-strewn ruins are rich in wildlife and give the sense of stumbling onto a Lost World.

El Rincon De Las Tortugas

Reviewed By ctscuba

Just north of Chetumal is a lovely waterfront village named Calderitas. Along the waterfront probably 15-18 restaurants. Tortugas is one of them. With a wonderful view of the water and people enjoying the sand surf & sun you can enjoy a wonderful meal, reasonably priced and with friendly service. Tortugas also offers Wifi access, which is really nice!! The staff is very attentive and some of the waiters speak a bit of English, but I tell them I need to practice my Spanish. The offer a Kabob that is almost a meal for 2. Most of the dishes are large portions! It's one of my favorite places to take folks that are visiting or just in the area shopping for the day.

La Terraza de Tito

Reviewed By emmio

This restaurant was divine! I hugely recommend all tourists in town to dine here if you want some seriously good and cheap meat tacos. The arrachera nachos was SO delicious and you get a huge plate for 95 pesos. I also had arrachera tacos with manchego, and they were equally good. Everything was very reasonably priced and tasty. The restaurant itself is clean and well presented, and it also has a little playground for kids. During my stay, I dined here repeatedly as I liked the way they grilled their arrachera steak.

Found it on Foursquare and several other sites, all the others are Spanish sites.

This place is a must! You will not be disappointed! We decided on this restaurant because of how many locals were eating here and thankfully that hunch was right!The seafood & meat paella was the best we've ever had! The ceviche is clearly very popular and after seeing so many people ordering we wanted to try it too. It was great. We also had a shrimp kabob and that was very tasty too.After traveling for the past 2 weeks from Cancun to here, we've had a lot of bad and just OK meals. But not this restaurant, it's the best one yet! If you go on a weekend, order the paella, the price is a steal and you can share a medium between 2 or 3 people.

My husband lived 2 blocks from this location as a boy. It was not always a restaurant. This now has a great local atmosphere with a beautiful view of the Chetumal bay. The best marisco soup you can buy. They have fresh red snapper deep fried whole it was delicious also. There is a large variety of beer also. They are open in the afternoons. We enjoyed our seating in front of the bay. The parking is only in front of the restaurant but it seems to be enough. The wait staff was very helpful and quick. They served chips and salsa as a starter. The ceviche was a great starter with the guacamole. We will return.

For the two of us, a guacamole and some nachos to share was enough. Along with some Modelo Especial (skip the Margarita), just relax and let it go. Later, the live music started, which we considered rather noise than music, and we left.Still, the place is very good value and staff is friendly.
