Awesome food and margaritas! Best food we ate all week! My husband said it was the best fish tacos he has ever had in his life- and it's the dish he orders at nearly every Mexican food restaurant! We are from Texas- we live on Mexican food! This restaurant did not disappoint. Get a margarita to go while you're there!!

The fish and chips were really good and crispy, and the drinks were good as well. The location is also very nice right on the water. However, when we ordered the drinks we asked for a single but he brought us a double. We didn't realize he brought us a double at the time, until he brought our bill and... More

We have been there twice in one week, and this place is the best! Best seafood on the island!! Try the lobster, you will not regret it! We ended our trip to Mexico here and had the best night. Staff is so friendly, nice and kind. Thank you Bally Hoo!!

We actually ate here two nights my fiends liked it so much. When I first took them, they were scratching their heads as we went thru the PeMex station to reach the restaurant. They were out of lobster on our first visit, so everyone opted for the grouper - although cooked in different styles. My garlic style was out of... More

It is always a great and very relaxing meal here. The service is on island time, so if you are in a hurry you may be disappointed. The staff is great, the food is very good and if you can catch the sunset....perfect!

I am a massive fan of fish tacos and Bally Hoo without a doubt serves the best on Isla Mujeres!! In fact, they are some of the most delicious I've ever had. Beautiful, fresh fish with an awesome crispy batter, cabbage, white sauce and corn tortillas. Just how they should be! Make sure you ask for their tamarind sauce to... More

We visit here every trip & have enjoyed our dinner every time. This last visit last visit, though still good, has lost a bit of charm for me. I have always enjoyed having drinks & dinner while watching the fishing boats come in but this time the dock was empty. There were no "comings & goings" and I really missed... More

Both of us ate at Bally Hoo on Friday, July 31. We ordered coconut fried shrimp. The meal includes 8 large shrimp for 180 pesos. I compared this price to other restaurants and it was a much better deal than other places. We were amazed with the size of the shrimp. The meal comes with rice and vegetables; however, we... More

My wife and I had lunch there. We experienced the Best Fish Tacos Ever. She had shrimp and I had fish. They were very good. Lightly fried in chipolte mayo & topped with a tasty cabbage salad. The restaurant is at the end of a very busy dock. Its a great place for a cold Mexican beer & people watch.... More
