The food is so good, fresh and flavorful. Everyone there friendly. Love soft tacos.

Excellent Mexican food. We enjoy the tortas the most - especially the carnitas. The bread is perfectly able to absorb the beans and avocados without becoming too mushy and the peppers bring the zing.

Not much room to sit and eat, but the family beach house is only a few short blocks away. If you eat there, expect a crowded space.

The food was delicious. The menu was quite expansive for both breakfast and lunch. Prices were reasonable. The salsa was very good. I had eggs with cilantro, jalenpenos and cheese and I added salsa. The meal came with rice and black beans. It was a great, filling meal. My friend had a soup and salad. The cup of soup was more like a bowl with a lot of chicken and large chunks of guac. The salad was a good size with lots of toppings.

After a wonderful bike tour, had lunch at Picante Martin's. Sooo good! Fast service - we had a large group of 9 and all had our meals were ready in short amount of time. Not a big eat-in area but heavy take-out traffic - most locals so you know it's good.

Our family comes to Picante Martins every time we're in the area. We love the food, and the island is a really nice place to be.
