This is my wife and I's go to place each evening for sunset. The wine pour is heavy and priced fairly. The view is to die for. It can be hard to find because it sits on the end of a fishing dock and tucked in behind the gas station which is always busy but a gem once you locate... More

We loved our cevhice with octopus, scallops and fish and it was enough serving for an entire meal. We also ordered the fish tacos, which were flavorful and an extremely generous portion for the price. Our catamaran captain recommended this place, and I'm thrilled he did!

My love for Bally-Hoo has been well documented. It’s not just the food, the casual atmosphere, the friendly service or even the view. It’s all of that. It’s a vibe that to me says “Isla Mujeres” better than any other place on the island. For all you day trippers, if you can eat only one meal on Isla I strongly... More

We came here for our friends bday dinner. We had conch ceviche, fish tacos and 4 beers. Our bill came to 335 pesos. The view was great and the food was too. Would definitely return !!

We love to sit and watch the boats and seagulls and pelicans. You are actually sitting on the dock over the water. They serve a great breakfast at a very low and reasonable cost! It's our special early morning spot. They serve a great cup of coffee too.

someof the best fried fish on the island. comes with fries instead of "chips". It's located on the water at a busy location so lots to watch while you dine.

Just got back from Bally Hoo where I had a very hard time deciding between fish tacos, shrimp tacos and coconut shrimp. I went with the fish tacos and a mango margarita. Not a big slaw fan and the fish tacos came with a slaw but once I drizzled some of the tamarind sauce (they give you 3 different sauces)... More

We were killing time in between dives at the Bally Hoo marina and decided to stop in for lunch. The guacamole was soooooo good, definitely one of the best I've had. I ordered the shrimp tacos and my boyfriend ordered the fish tacos. They are the best on the island. So fresh! We were unable to try their margaritas due... More

We stopped in this restaurant for dinner on the first night of our trip. We ordered coconut shrimp, fish tacos and margaritas. All of them were AMAZING!! they're margaritas were huge! We were very surprised that there were not more people there for dinner. It was right on a marina and the staff was AMAZING!! thanks!
