It's been six months since I have eaten at Bruja and my meal is always delicious. The fish vera cruz is my favorite. It is well worth a trip to La Gloria for great authentic mexican foos at a very reasonable price

This place is easy to miss driving by in your rented golf cart but worth the stop for authentic, great tasting food. They accommodated 12 people on a moments notice and did a wonderful job. I see why it is a local favorite!

We just spent one week on Isla Mujeres and ate at La Brjua 5 times. Roberto, owner and chef, is very accommodating and generous. This was far best restaurant on the island
