Decent place to watch the sunset with a cocktail but literally the WORST margarita I've ever had. Couldn't finish it even after adding Sprite.

After countless trips to Riveria Maya, we finally made a day trip to the island. I had read about Bally Hoo here on TripAdvisor and other forums. The atmosphere is awesome, I loved watching the fishing boats. The food not so much, it was ok nothing spectacular, wait staff not very friendly.

Delicious fresh food in a great location. Convenient that they accept credit cards. Very friendly service. The margaritas are HUGE and great tasting. Highly recommend the garlic fish filet and especially the octopus ceviche. Great views from where you sit.

We had lunch here, it was fun, service was fast, drinks were great, food was worth it. It takes patience and a keen eye or a guide to find this place, it really is behind a gas station, once there though it is unique.

When I'm in Isla Mujeres, I always enjoy Baja style fish tacos at the Bally Hoo. They are very good and affordable. Th restaurant is an open air location at the marina so you get a nice view and nice breeze. It's worth a visit.

If you're looking for a good spot for beers and guacamole on the water, Bally Hoo is for you! Behind the PemEx on Avenue Medina it is right on the dock so you can also watch the boats come in with the day's catch. They do mix a mean margarita - the grande is BIG....very reasonable and overall is a... More
