We went there twice, had some great prawns in different sauces, homemade handcut french fries! Variety of drinks were limited but tasty.

We enjoyed a meal here and noticed several Mexican families at nearby tables. The menu was varied but I can definitely recommend the grilled fish with garlic and the guacamole. The service was attentive and friendly. Our table faced a large wall mural of sea life to remind us of where we were.

I tried this restaurant on the strength of TripAdvisor reviews but wasn't impressed. It was ok, but I had better meals for the same price or less - eg Raices beach bar, la sirenita.

Very friendly personnel and really tasty food to affordable prices. Its more in the range of the other single € restaurants on Holbox with main dishes around 120-150 pesos. I can easily recommend shrimps in cream sauce - very tasty!

Tried two pastas for a late lunch - 60/120 pesos (with/without meat). Not bad, nor good. Choose it if you are on a tight budget.

If you're looking for fresh grilled fish in a casual place this is a go to. It doesn't get as much attention as its "ocean front neighbors" although its only 20 meters away from the beach. We had the freshest and tastiest grilled fish. This is a causal and local place but for a fresh fish lunch it's the best... More
