I don't know the name of the local fish that was served, but it was simply the most delicious piece of fish I have ever eaten (with the small disclaimer that as a land-locked Midwesterner, I don't have wide experience of fresh fish). The place...More

Nothing better if you are looking for traditional Mexican food at very very cheap price!! Walking distance from the harbour, far from the chaos of the main road. Not so many tables. Cash payment only. We really loved having our dinner at Poc Chuc!

Food was good even though I had some bones in my chicken burrito. Staff friendly and cheap prices. Guacamole amazing.

We eat here several times during our multiple-weeks stays on the island. The food is good, the portions are generous, and it is a relaxing, small, non-fancy place to eat. We have never been anything other than satisfied with both the food and the prices.

Very good food and service in a family run restaurant. Small, <25 seats, but worth the wait if you have too; turnover reasonable. We ate here in '15 before I started reviewing and the quality hasn't changed. We wanted a small meal this time and...More

Fish, Garlic and Lime soups were what I enjoyed most about this location. We stayed at the Casa Jalapeno apartment, so really only feet away. I order Cappuccino to-go from them almost every morning. Everything was very good here and enjoyed many meals.
