El Shrimp Bucket
Due to the damage caused by Hurricane Wilma, the following description may no longer be accurate. Please consider this when making your travel plans. This location specializes in, you guessed it, shrimp. Other seafood dishes are also on the menu: oysters, snails, squid, crayfish and a variety of fish. The most recommended specialties are the shrimp with three chilies and the Rockefeller oysters, with melted cheese and baked with spinach. Shrimp Bucket has an informal, family atmosphere. Its decor has sea motifs and its local mascot is a cute shrimp cartoon. It has an outdoor area on the lagoon that is very romantic at night.
No dislikes only Likes... Victor and his staff was a blast!!! Good food and great fun with the rest. staff.... I promised I would come back and get thrown in the lagoon.. I did.. They did.. (No gators during the day). Victor was fun and he took care of our party(10 people) no problem... The place looks like the pics on line... great fun for the entire family...
Victor also took me back to my hotel after getting thrown in the lagoon although we didn't go in the Bentley that was parked outside... Maybe next time!!! We will go back the El shrimp Bucket the next time we are in Cancun
We were looking forward to finding a restaurant in Cancun with fresh seafood. This was not the place to do that. Three of the four of us ordered the buffet, which at first glance looked great (we were starving after a day in the sun!). After we had ordered and went back to get our food, I soon noticed the bugs that were flying all around the food that we had previously missed. Thinking it wasn't too big of a deal we all ate. Before we even left the restaurant I was getting sick in the bathroom. I continued to get sick over the next 24 hours and it ruined the rest of my vacation, so please, do NOT eat here!!!
Location was close to our hotel, so we went here to grab a bite. I started feeling sick a little later and didn't keep my dinner down long. Service staff was great. Food was OK. I ordered steak, which had very little taste, but the shrimp was good.
The Coconut shrimp wasn't that great.. too much coconut and not much shrimp and it also tasted a little chalky. The Bacon BBQ shrimp was amazing though! 11 big shrimps! We went here for dinner on our last night. I would definitely go back there again if I return to beautiful Cancun! I would definitely recommend this place!
The meal we had was not good. For the price of the meal, I got five shrimp and some potato logs. My friend got a meal of shrimp and it was very spicy and made us queasy. The pina colado was good and very tall. Go to Cancun every year and I will not (and have not) recommended this restaurant to others visiting.
Unfortunately, we went to El Shrimp Bucket on our last night in Cancun, otherwise, we would have eaten there every night. The atmosphere was fun and informal, the staff extremely enjoyable and they did everything to get guests to join in the fun. They even celebrated a phoney wedding between a customer and a waitress. The food was excellend, try the Giant Shrimps.
We stayed in a hotel close by, and had both lunch and dinners at the restaurant. The service we received was always first class, and you can't beat being in an open-air restaurant with a wonderful view.
We definately will go back if we ever return to Cancun.
