We loved this place! Stopped in for drinks on our first full day on island. At the bar they have swings so we just sat, swinging and drinking :) Went back to for dinner and wow, we should have gone there more than once but it was our last night. We had shrimp skewers (grilled shrimp with grilled peppers and... More

We've visited a couple of times before and always had the "surf and turf" mixed grill, its huge and fabulous! Service is slow but, that's Holbox/Mexico. For that they would get 4 stars because of the service. This time we ordered fish and ribeye. When it came nothing else came with it, no garnish, veg, fries nothing! They had to... More

Lovely friendly staff and great atmosphere and drinks. Lobster on the sharing platter was a bit over cooked, but table next to us had a big lobster and it looked perfect. Had 2 out of 4 dinners here when in holbox

Our party of four enjoyed dinner here one evening. It's a fun spot with excellent service and some interesting paintings on the walls. My son and his partner ordered a platter for two people that came with lobster, steak, fish and shrimp. It was huge amount of food and looked amazing, but they both were a little let down by...

I had the Camarones (Shrimps) Zapata Style and the were delicious! Nice Waiter but like always in Yucatan, you need time to eat, nothing goes fast which is ok in holiday😀

I love this place, and went several times during my 4-day stay on the island. It has the best margaritas I've ever had, great food (try the ceviche), nice staff, and good live music. I especially enjoyed stopping in to have a drink and a snack at the bar in the afternoon.

Had the guacamole & shrimp in a cream sauce - food was good, service fast and friendly. Nothing terribly memorable in either a good or bad way.

Lovely Holbox gem! Swinging bar seats and quaint atmosphere, including a kid friendly table with toys. We loved the mojitos and roasted peppers they serve like salsa. We ordered a seafood platter... big enough for a family, with too many ocean creatures to mention- some more desirable to eat than others! The ceviche was our favorite on the island. Don't... More
