Don't Pass Up This Seaside Gem

We stopped at Da Luisa while driving around the island on our golf cart and we are so glad we did! The view was stunning and we were the only ones there so it kind of felt like we were having lunch at someone's private villa on the beach.

We ate three meals here while spending our first week mid-island. We always tried to get seating next to the sea, didn't care how windy it was. Staff was very attentive, and the food was great.

Beautiful place for breakfast on a warm day as they have a large outdoor patio overlooking caribbean. On a windy day you will have to eat inside. It was a pretty place but we found it very difficult to get someone to give us coffee. Never saw our waiter again after getting our food and had to wait forever for... More

What a view! This restaurant had an absolutely stunning view perched above the ocean and the staff was incredible. The food was presented very nicely and the food tasted great. All around a wonderful place to eat a meal!

We stopped for dinner at Da Luisa because the menu and location next to the ocean were both extraordinary. The view at dinner from the patio was without comparison, the ambiance was one of romance and elegance. The wait staff was unobtrusive but always attentive. We had a variety of dishes from perfectly cooked steaks, to savory lobster and delicate... More

We had breakfasts and dinners there and the food was very tasty and the service very good. We particularly enjoyed the tuna ceviche (big portion so ok to share) and the lobster spaghetti in a white wine sauce. Would definitely recommend this place for a nice romantic dinner with the lovely view on the Caribbean sea.

We stayed at Casa Ixchel which is the hotel connected to this restaurant. We ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals here while we were on the island. The meals were all great, would only avoid the pasta as we felt it was not cooked enough. Recommend the fish tacos, guacamole, grilled fish dinner and for breakfast definitely the french toast!...

We stopped here on our golf cart tour. Sat on rooftop and enjoyed mimosas and a delicious Yucatan breakfast- best of our trip! A must stop if exploring the island in the morning. This side of the island is rocky, and coupled with the sound of the sea and the great grease Meade for a lovely atmosphere. And- when our... More

We ate here our last night in Isla Mujeres. It was good... wish the menu was a little bigger and more fit for Mexico - I would say more of Italian... The lime soup was very tasty and so much flavor. I had the grilled lobster, which was just a tail - with potatoes, everything was served with these hash... More

First day on the island and I was craving ceviche. Like fresh white fish, shrimp ceviche. So we stopped here as the view looked pretty great (and it was). I went wrong in the menu selection and instead of choosing ahi shashimi or poke style, went with ceviche. The lime juice seemed to over cook the tuna, and it tasted... More
