The restaurant is clean and in a nice location. I had a watermelon martini that was delicious. The food took a very long time to come out (over an hour), and half of my meat was undercooked. But if you have time to sit back and relax for a while, this is a nice place to do it.

This place has become my favorite in the island. I just love everything of it, the attention, the food, the drinks, the place, OMG the desserts. The place itself invites you to take a look at the menu, everything is well served and the signature drinks makes you want to stay there for hours. We really enjoyed the place. Do... More

The cuisine was fine, basic Mexican food. However, the mole was too rich for my tummy. Order the basics.

From the overall vibe, Rosa Mexicano is a very un-Holbox restaurant unless you are maybe a young backpacker. The roughhewn wooden deck opens onto the street rumbling with golf carts and motorbikes, while the electronic Europop soundtrack pulses in the background. The swing seats at the bar (not unique on Holbox) are quite cute and the restaurant offers a very... More

A very nice setting, great for people watching and the restuarant has a really nice vibe.... More

I will first start with the fact that our server was very nice, the atmosphere was good and the space was clean. The food unfortunately was terrible. We ordered an app...it seemed to be a stale corn tortilla with a beef ceveiche? Not so good, oh well on to the next course. Ordered the octopus with corn salasa. I was... More

We read some great reviews of Rosa Mexicano and we were really excited to eat dinner here. Unfortunately, our expectations were not met. Maybe it was an off night--they seemed very understaffed. Drinks took at least fifteen minutes to order and receive. We enjoyed the QUESO fundido (though not as much as the one at Viva Zapata), but the other... More
