We stopped in for breakfast after seeing the good reviews and we were pleasantly surprised. The coffee was delicious, the service was great and the food was yummy. I had the had the ham and cheese omelette and my husband had the huevos motuleños. Both were delicious and we will be stopping in again for lunch or dinner. Very reasonably... More

I spent 4 days diving in Isla Mujeres and ate breakfast here just about every morning. There are options from toast and jam to omelets and hotcakes. The food is good. The service is expedient. The prices are incredible. I like to dive with a light bit of breakfast and this place hit the spot. I recommend it.

One of the handful of the places left on the island whose prices haven't risen substantially in the nine years my family has been going to the island. The food is great, the service was attentive. We have been going here for years and will continue to go.

We ordered a couple of veggie dishes (40 pesos each) which were good value for money, and tasted good. Service was attentive and friendly. We will be back again

We've eaten here twice. I wish it had only been once. The service was below average and the food, just average. There is a real lack of Mexican food on Isla Mujeres, which is why we went here to try it again a second time after not being super happy the first time. This restaurant is well located, but the...

Don't walk by this restaurant , it might not be the fanciest place to eat but the quality of the food will make up for anything it lacks in ambience . I had one of the best meals of the trip here, chiles Rellenos and fanta. I will be returning here.

Eager, friendly young server was capable and efficient. We were the only two diners in the place, but that quickly changed when two large families with boisterous toddlers came in. He had things under control, even when the grandpa of that group insisted on shouting in bad Spanish, and changing the order three times. I went here for the sole... More

There are actually two Poc Chuc restaurants across from each other with the same menu, but we like the one that is mid block on the west side of Juarez better. We've had several meals there over the years and enjoyed each one. The Poc Chuc itself (roast pork) was good but I liked other things on the menu even... More

My friends and I specifically returned here, after a great first visit two years ago. It was as friendly and authentic as before, and we really enjoyed our food. I hope that, just because they've been "discovered," they don't change what obviously works....just being their authentic selves. I love Poc Chuk!
