Food was pretty good - the sharing platter is a veritable feast so don't make the mistake we did and order some starters as well. Can pay by card here which is useful to know.

Grab a drink, good cold beer and excellent cocktails, take a seat and relax. If you are feeling hungry then this is a great place to eat, you can watch them cook and prepare your food, all fresh and delicious. Seafood to die for too.

The best fish soup I have ever eaten in my entire life! BTW: One of the restaurants in Isla Holbox which is operated by a local and it's worth it to go there.

Food and atmosphere are both awesome. Had the house pasta with shrimp, WOW! Large portion and great flavor. Going back to try the grilled seafood platter for 2!

We went there yesterday for dinner. The food (fajitas and grilled octopus) was good. But unfortunately most waiters didn’t speak English. In total we were served by 6 waiters of whom only one understood our orders. Overall quite disappointing. There are better places for dinner!

We spent one evening here and had really good drinks. The beers are cheap (about 30MXP) and the cocktail el holboxino (about 120 MXP) is amazing, really to be tried and enjoyed.
