Miguel makes excellent drinks, is a true local, and the food is not bad either :-} We always feel welcome there, even though they are on a side street. Can't say enough good things about it....but do not go there with Ixchel dining expectations.

Recommended to us by a local, this is a great little restaurant away from the main touristy strip (and much much better). Mojitos are great especially during happy hour!

We arrived in Isla Mujeres few days ago along with Regatta del Sol. Our friend the Captain of Bele ESprit 2 has been coming 23 years and visits Miguel's restaurant every visit. Located in heart of city about 1/2 block off Hidalgo, Miguel (owner) serves up scrumptious local cuisine with ever smiling hospitality grace and warmth. We tried the Cerviche,... More

That's how Miguel says goodnight to us snowbirds. Super funny guy, always hospitable. Good drinks, cold beer, and you can leave your autograph literally anywhere on the walls.

It is like stopping at the corner bar at home. Good family owned bar. Miguel greeted us like he remembered us. The wife & I haven't been there for 7 years. He didn't remember our names but he remembered where we live. We had no state name on us but he knew where we were from.

Stopped in for dinner. Was greeted with a hug and handshake by the owner. Very nice guy. Food wasn't the best I've ever had, but it was good. Will gladly return next time we are on the island.

I've never eaten here, but have been there for 2x1 drinks several times. Miguel is great - very friendly - and I always have the pomegranate margaritas. Mojitos are good too. We've always sat outside. Fun place later in the evening after dinner when wandering around town.

Ever since we've met Miguel years ago, his place is a must stop on Isla. It's just a little place with writing all over the walls and ceilings from previous visitors (including us) just a half block off Hildago. Sometimes he has a band, but none that we saw that week we were there. We stopped by every night after... More

Miguel's is still fantastic. Miguel has great food, great drinks and a good staff. His motto is todos es posible (anything is possible) and he certainly lives up to it. From the pomegranate margaritas to the food, it just can't get better.
