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!

This little restaurant is located in the colonial section of Isla Mujeres. It isn't as aesthetically appealing as the places on Hildago, but it's food is top-notice. A popular item is the enchilada dish. It's sold as an appetizer, yet it's a meal by itself. My friend ordered it and said it "was excellent." I ordered the grilled chicken tacos.... More

This is hands down my favorite place to eat on the island. I ate there for breakfast, lunch and dinner(3 times). The prices are great. The food is tasty. The atmosphere is authentic. The host, Roberto was super friendly. Every meal was superb. I cant wait to get back there.

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

Strangely enough, he had no desire to set up camp in Omaha, NE. No matter. Enchilada Suizas is all you need to know. This little place was our absolute favorite on the island. It is on the south end and well worth the cab fair. We visited twice during our week-long stay. The food is absolutely amazing, the service good... More

This place may not look like much but the food and service are VERY good. The garlic fish is excellent as are the fish tacos. The owners are very nice and the service was good.

I have been living in Isla Mujeres on and off for 2 years and have visited numerous times before that. I thought that I had had my favorite meals until I had the seafood soup (sopa de mariscos) with the chipolte chiles. I have eaten here before and liked it and thought it was a great value but this dish... More

Happened on La Bruja the first night on Isla Mujeres. We were very hungry. A fisherman had just sold his catch to Roberto (owner). We ordered the pascado entero. It was so good. The meal consisted of the whole fish, rice, small salad and vegetables. The steamed vegetables were frozen which was a bit disappointing. We returned for lunch today... More
