This place is right downtown. There are several restaurants on this street that hustle you in and this is one of them. We ordered the fish and a filet. The fish did not have much flavor and the steak was tough. Not a steak that you want to pay $40. Pick somewhere else for dinner.

Just came back from the island. This place was every bad thing the reviews say. The service was awful...not just slow but they could have cared less. The food taste like it came out of a microwave. Over priced. Also they do charge gratuity on the check. This place makes 7-11 seems like a 5 Star resturant. Just walk on... More

So many choices but we picked the fresh catch of the day- the grouper. It was a massive/thick cut & yet so tender & juicy all the way through. I could have had it for dinner every night. The street front experience was amazing too. Good people watching, street entertainment. Also, there were a few people performing/singing off to the... More

Wait staff was great, drinks are what you would expect but I should have left when the first thing the waiter said was that they had no pasta (not that I wanted it) or seafood (um hello, we are on an island right?). regardless we got the grill and the meat was sub-par fatty or tough and not very flavorful.

Our visit was amazing to L'Argentina! Our bartender, Rebecca, was amazing! Made us feel like home and took care of us. She makes one of the BEST MOJITOS! The scorpion shot is a must! If you want to experience what Isla Mujeres is all about you've got to pay a visit to L'Argentina!!!

We ordered 6 different items. 3 had octopus as part of the dish and all three in our party said it was the best they ever had. Nachos and tacos just OK and fajitas had very little meat.

I was in a group of 7. Most of us enjoyed the food immensely. Most of us had good service, too. If you order a bottle of wine, you get extra attention. (I didn't order wine). As a single in a group, my drink order slipped throgh their cracks. Food was worth it.

We tried twice and ordered a large variety of menus items. One or two were decent but most were WAY over cooked. Service good and drinks great - bartender did a nice job. Cooking on snow open flame should not be thief claim to fame.... But hey it's always packed so maybe something is working but up for us it's... More

Heads up! Pay careful attention to your bill, as they try to pass off the tip as part of the total amount due. Then, there is a chart of 'recommended tips' based on quality of service, (average, good, excellent, etc), implying (to me) that a tip had yet to be added. As for the rest of the meal, disappointing.

The meat was so dry and not edible... The service was fine, but we told the them about the bad food they ignored... We definitely do not recommend!
