Went here twice for mexican food. The food was good, not great. The service was great, and had a good sense of humour too. But the star of the show was the Bohemia dark beer, and my wife's margaritas. There are better restaurants on Isla, but Mamacitas was fun, and quick service and food.

I hate to disagree with the other reviewers, but this is the only restaurant I’ve tried on the island that I can’t give a decent review. My dinner was fine, but my husband ordered a soup that was mostly red salty water. He couldn’t eat it. What really set this place apart was that the waiter did not return with... More

We have been there I would say by chance. Emily the owner took our order, to our big surprise, she is Italian and speaks an excellent English. She explained us how the courses were made, the choice of ingredients and the love she has for her job. Three word to describe it. WE LOVED IT. So if you decide to... More

Had two small lobster tails and although small they were flavorful. The person who stands outside and explains to people passing by the menu his name is Shorty and he has a fantastic personality. Tell him Nancy and Juanita said hello. Lobster tails were around $22 CDN

Mamacitas was good, I wouldn't say it was great but not bad. I would give them another try. Service was about average.

The fellow out on the street drumming up business was hilarious, our new "best friend" on the island. They found someone they better treat well, as he is the dream employee. In fact, all the staff we watched were moving as fast as they could to get orders in and drinks to their customers. The food was great and nice... More

Our lodging hosts live on Isla and recommended Mamacitas. Manuel was our waiter and he was more than terriffic! Not only did he make recommendations based on each of our tastes, but he also gave us a ton of history about each dish and its origins. The food was prepared very well and the atomosphere is great. Manuel ranks with... More

How Mamacitas is not high on the list of restaurants in Isla Mujeres is a mystery to me. We went there three out of seven nights on our recent visit to the island. The food is absolutly the best, with freshness guaranteed. All three nights I had the fish in garlic sauce, and I don't even like fish! I had... More
