Great fish and view

Service was slow, but the food was worth it. Right on the ocean near the ferry dock. I enjoy eating here for dinner at least one night when I visit. Very well priced too..

We asked some locals a very good fish restaurant and they suggested us this one... I know now why! The food is simply excellent, with a great choice as well. It was one of the best dinners I had during my holidays and even the spartan and plain furnishings made it somehow full of charm.

I had a piece of white fish here, it was cooked in a spicy tomato sauce, and the dish is honestly one of the most delicious I have ever had. My wife love her prawns. Sure, the place is casual, plastic chairs, and such, but do not pass up the opportunity to take some of the best seafood you will... More

Dined there with kids recently. All enjoyed the food, but the view was memorable. Cafe is on the beach... not near, but ON the beach. Sunset is awesome, service was good. I'd go back

We came here for the toes in the sand supper and weren't disappointed. I had the medium sized shrimp cocktail for 85 pesos and I think I got about 20 medium sized shrimp out of there. My husband got the fried snapper and it was excellent. Pair that with pico, guac, a few cervesas and great service and you got... More

We have made this our annual first stop when we get to Isla. Who could complain about eating with your toes in the sand? Service is always great and fish is delicious. We get it with garlic and diablo.

We stumbled upon this restaurant on our way from the southern part of the island. We only wanted a cold drink and maybe a snack, however after watching some fresh fish go by us we decided to order a meal. The waiter asked if we were interested in fresh fish and we obviously were. He proceeded to escort us to... More

This use to be my favorite place on Isla Mujeres and sadly it has gone downhill. The food and the service are just not they were 2 years ago. There are better options on the beach.
