This is a great, convenient place to eat if you are staying at or near Playa Norte. It's an easy walk from Ixchel Beach condos.

Our travel group was invited for a very special dinner created by the owner and his staff (normally closed after 6pm). It was outstanding! The staff are wonderful and happy. The food was dynamite! Had breakfast for following two mornings and fell in love with their Caribbean Benedict with lobster WOW!!. Would highly recommend eating here. Wish I was there... More

When I’m traveling, I often like to start the day with a breakfast and coffee that I’d have at home, maybe a bagel and cream cheese. They have beautiful salads, great sandwiches and very nice service.

We were on the Isla for 6 days and this is the only restaurant we ate at more than once. We only had breakfast there but it was great. The many different versions of Eggs Benedict were all great. My wife said the pancakes she had may have been the best she's ever had. Close to Playa Norte and not... More

My wife and I dropped dropped in for lunch. Great to experience AC for a change. Withe the obligatory coronas came a spinach salad and chicken sandwich with salad on the side. The bread was top drawer and the salad featured fresh fruit. My wife's spinach salad came with candied pecans, cranberries and goat cheese. Just like at home. Give... More

After giving Rooster a skip last year, we just had to try it for breakfast this year. All of our food was very fresh and tasty (including the amazing cinnamon roll!), service was with a smile, and the air conditioning was VERY welcome on a hot, humid May morning after getting way too late of a start for breakfast!

We've been coming here for 3 years and the breakfast here is fantastic. Great place to start the day with coffee, a Rooster muffin, and one of their delicious entrees! Best time is when they open at 7 to have plenty of shade and a cool breeze coming down Hidalgo.
