Such wonderful, attentive service! Love the atmosphere and friendly vibes but we were disappointed in our lobster. It was so over cooked that we really could not cut it with a knife. Will visit next time for breakfast.

We remembered this restaurant from the first time we went Isla Mujeres. Breakfast was delicious. So this recent visit we ventured back. As before, the food is great, presented nicely, and the staff is wonderful. Twice we went for breakfast! Oh, the cappuccino is fantastic! We are sorry we did not get there for dinner.

My wife and I decided to try the place as most of the places around the corner on Hidalgo seemed to too intense and loud for us. We actually like to hear each other's conversation while we eat! We loved it and ended up eating there three times during our 7 day stay on the island. You will wait a... More

One of their employees was on the corner offering a look at the menu, so we gave it a try. First off the service was excellent--fast and attentive. While my dish was quite simple--a cheese and chorizo omelet--it was prepared with the cheese in the omelet and the chorizo sausage sprinkled on top. Never seen it prepared that way before,... More

We were on our third straight day of rainy weather and ventured out for our favorite pastime on Isla Mujeres, eating dinner. I had been to Bistrot Francais before, but only for breakfast. After trying to get into Olivia (no availability as it's the hot restaurant right now on the island) we ventured around the corner and I spotted the... More

Every time we travel we eat here one night. The seafood is very good, and the french onion soup is the best! Very accommodating, great service, and the price is right.

We were waiting for over an hour to get our food delivered. The breakfast was good, but very disappointing after the lengthy wait.
