They just give you a list of individual sea food and thats it. There's not a menu of specific meals just "snapper" that might be what some people are looking for, but it was overwhelming and dumb to us. We ordered a round of oysters and they were the worst I've ever had. The service was nice and it had a good view, but I would steer clear and go to a more low-key and fun place than this confusing and expensive subpar meal.

From the moment you walk in you know it will be an experience unlike anything else on the island. There is a small pier with yachts that have come over from the mainland just for dinner. It’s that good. It’s a “fish market” so you pick your dinner, fresh dinner! The king crab legs were out of this world. The shrimp was fantastic also. The drinks were very good as well. Highly HIGHLY recommend you spurge on this one!!!

This review relates to the Cancun location. I actually reserved the wrong location because the photos are the same for both! But I am confident both our equally outstanding! Everything about the experience was top notch. And the food is delicious. We were only vacationing for 10 days and we ate here twice. Probably the best seafood restaurant I have ever been to. Everything is fresh. Very reasonably priced. I give my highest recommendation!

Mar Bella is our favorite place to have dinner. The seafood is amazing and so many choices to chose from. Don’t miss having dinner here. The seafood rice and tuna tostadas are our favs.

I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone who makes a reservation after 7:00pm! I asked for a reservation and was given 7:30!! When we got to the restaurant there was hardly anyone there! Reservation??? Why.
The service was very slow...I noticed the wait staff cleaning around us and realized they were breaking down for the night. I did not put two and two together that the restaurant closed at 8:00. You should never give a reservation 30 minutes before closings, kitchens usually start closing down....this was the first red flag.
It was suggested to me by a "local" to order a certain appetizer...the waiter looked at me and said he didn't know what I was talking about!?! Second red flag. When our meal came the beautiful fresh fish we picked was over cooked and highly seasoned! I complained to the waiter and his remark was "well the chef is not here tonight"...so you serve poorly cooked food?
I waited till almost the end of my vacation to eat at Mar Bella. I saw beautiful photos and heard great reviews....what a huge disappoint! I told the waiter that I work in a kitchen in America....he just looked at me without even apologizing for the poor meal we were served.
In my restaurant we would have compensated something...this is probably the first time since I have been in the industry that I left a poor tip!

Found this place through Open Table and it was an amazing dining experience. We made our reservation for 6, but easily pushed it back to 730 when we were running late. Showed up exactly at 730 and the place was empty. Picked a table on the beach and watched the sun set.

Jorge and Jesus did an incredible job explaining the daily (chalkboard) menu and what was fresh. We asked for suggestions and they added in a couple extra sauces. We split a dozen oysters and had yellowtail snapper and the octopus. The size (by the kg) was perfect and the taste incredible.

The staff was attentive and respectful. The only issue was at that hour the dessert were mostly sold out. Also, as I had read, the mosquitoes we're out at sunset, but the staff was quick to spray us with Off.

Overall, an amazing dining experience!

Very enjoyable. It’s right on the water. I’ve never had octopus that good before. If you sit outside, go earlier before the bugs come out. Otherwise the ‘indoor’ part of the restaurant is fine. The service it top notch.
