We love lobster! When Rosie and I moved to Puerto Aventuras over a year ago,we went on a hunt. We wanted to find the restaurant with the best lobster dinner on the Riviera Maya… and we have found it!!!
La Buena Vida (“The Good Life”),located in Akumal,has a wonderful atmosphere,well made drinks and the lobster dinner is fantastic!!!
Whenever we have family and friends visiting from the U.S.,we make sure that LBV is on our short list of places to go for lunch or dinner.
Our waiter,Carlos,is very attentive and very friendly. We have had the pleasure of having him as our server several times before. In fact,when we decided to go for dinner one night recently,and there were no tables by the water,he took a table and set it up 6 feet from the tide line.
While we had been waiting for our table,we had met some new friends at the bar. They had already eaten,but joined us for drinks while we were having dinner. It was their first time to LBV and they'd loved the food and the atmosphere,however when they saw the royal treatment that Carlos had given us,they asked if we owned the place. LOL
Don't get me wrong,there are many,many wonderful restaurants all throughout this area,but in our humble opinion- if you want the best lobster on the Riviera Maya,coupled with excellent margaritas,an incredible view,a relaxed atmosphere and top quality service,we highly recommend La Buena Vida. You will not be disappointed.
(Just save some lobster for us) ;-)
