dag-dag-kosher-cancun-mexicoLate last year, a new dairy / fish restaurant opened in Cancun. Dag Dag’s website (koshercancunrestaurant.com) details their menu and prices in English.

In doing research on the restaurant, we found one mention – a review of the restaurant from January, which didn’t paint a rosy picture of their service:

They took our reservation for 17 people but we decided to pick up instead. No delivery even though it says they do on the website. Cost 40 dollars for the cab. Went to the restaurant. 4 people were waiting for dinner and left without eating after waiting 90 minutes! We waited a total of 3 hrs from the time we ordered until MOST of the food was ready (not all). The place was far from hygenic. They told us they fired the staff for not using gloves and thats why it took so long but the owner was picking paper towel off my order with his bare hands. The food was fair at best. They kept telling us how great it all would be but even the fried fish came with the breading having fallen off in the fryer. They took an hour to make french fries and in the end still charged us full price for evreything. Better bet is to bring microwave meals and buy food from walmart as this place was nothing but aggravating.

Considering the restaurant is new, and likely disorganized during their first winter busy season, it’s entirely possible that by now they have their act together. If you’ve visited Dag Dag recently, please comment below and let us know how they did.

    Even if the service is below par, its still nice to have restaurant options while on vacation.

    I was just there with my wife another couple. We got there at 8:00PM Motzei Shabbos and they said that they opened up at 9:00PM. They were so hospitable. They took our order for grouper fish and chips. I had a vegetable soup and the table had an assortment platter of falafel, hummos, pickles and home made pita. We waited 45 minutes for the fish and chips because all is made fresh. He was even slicing the grouper. All in all the wait was worth it. The fish was the best batter fried fish I have ever eaten. They opened up two weeks ago in this location and I wish them all the mazal. If you are expecting a fancy restaurant, than this is not for you. If you want good homemade food, enjoy.
