My husband and I ate here in January and loved it. I had eaten here last year upon recommendation of reception at our hotel. Last year my daughter and I ate here twice because it was so good and, like other reviewers, couldn't seem to NOT order the same thing both times! That is, the sopa de lima (like a... More

This was the only restaurant on the island we returned to. We first had some Guacamole, Huevos Rancheros and some beers. Their guac is amazing, generous portions too. The huevos were a bit hit and miss, but once we mixed in their home made salsa we still cleaned up the plate :) We came back for a Pollo Mole (Chicken... More

We strolled up the street for dinner at La Lomita and were seated at an outdoor table by the door. What a lovely meal! The big and burly 'Sylvester Stallone' served us beer in chilled mugs, then a simple but tasty black bean soup, followed by the Chili Rellenos. Our best meal on Isla by far (17 restaurants and counting)... More

We visited this restaurant on a Tuesday evening and it was quite busy. Staff was friendly and the restaurant nicely decorated to give you the real Mexican restaurant feel. Each of the four people enjoyed the food and service. Price seemed a bit on the high side being $400.00 pesos or so per. couple. Nice place but a bit out... More

Over the years we've always enjoyed our meals here especially the chili rellenos. This time they weren't very good in fact neither husband or I could finish them. Our friends had enchiladas Suzia and shrimp in butter they said their meals were fine. So maybe we hit off night.

First impressions can be off-putting. I visited here last July on probably the hottest day on Isla ever. My legs were sticking to the plastic table covers (shower curtains). But the soup was so divine, and the Sol so cold and delicious, I couldn't wait to come back last month (December) and pay the owner another visit. And get more... More

A minute walk south of the church, brings you to a gem of a Mexican restaurant. We have had the bean soup (every time!, We can't pass it up!) which is delicious black bean soup with a mountain of onion, cilantro and rice on top of it. It is a meal in itself. The fish isleno is prepared in foil... More

This is by far the best restaurant in town on Isla Mujeres. The ceviches, enchiladas suizas, filete de pescado de coco, to-die-for chile rellenos and amazing black bean soup....so much food, so little time. Oh yes, and you must go for huevos rancheros for breakfast! The owner is a total character and has a great sense of humor. The prices... More
