Excellent seafood, especially ceviche & calamari. We tried it the first evening of our week-long dive trip to Isla Mujeres and came back two more times. The main restaurant street on the island is a few blocks away, Calle Hidalgo. In summer the heat there is brutal. Bally Hoo sits out into the marina area on Bahia Mujeres, so it... More

We absolutely loved this restaurant! Started our day at 6:30am because we had to be at the dock to go on the Whale Shark snorkeling trip (which was AMAZING)!! We decided to get there early because we had read on tripadvisor that Bally Hoo's had great food!! It was so nice to sit by the water and have such a... More

If want a lovely evening breeze, fresh food and fantastic service, you must visit Bally Hoo! We've been coming here for three years and it's always been a great experience. The fish is straight out of the sea and the fish & chips are fantastic, and such great value. The staff are so friendly and fun too.

This was the second trip to Isla and second time at Bally Hoo. Hubby loves this place for the fish tacos. We've had both the grilled and fried. Throw caution to the wind and get the fried version. The salsas they served with them were good and I had a divine mango margarita while the hubby had a regular version.... More

Ok, this place is behind a gas station, and you actually have to use the restroom in the gas station, but don't let that deter you. A great bar, with tables on the water, and cool vibe. We had the surf and turf for two and it was delicious! Service was prompt and friendly, and the wine was very good.... More

This is my second visit and just confirmed the great review of the first. Great food, perfect atmosphere and great location. We had shrimp tacos, steak tacos, 2 beers and 1 margarita for 190 pesos. Delicious!

We went there daily all 5 days we stayed on the Island. The GRILLED fish tacos are so good. The margaritas are STRONG. We love visiting this place.

The location makes this place a must do must see and must be. Food: the tuna steak was perfect, the cheeseburger mediocre, but fair. Waiter was nice and funny. Good spot. We had a good time.
