Sailboat cruise to the island watching the sunset- then the freshest fish ever! My step-daughter said best shrimp cocktail of her life! Go for the "Pescado a la TIKINXIC " They do have hambergesos for the non- adventurous!

Although the place is located among the tourist traps on the main oceanside street, it is a great place for very reasonably priced seafood. We had the coconut jumbo shrimp which came with pineapple sauce, rice and beans and a large fish ceviche which was huge. Both dishes were very generous in size, fresh and very we'll prepared. The meal... More

We went to Isla Mujeres for only 5 days, and ended up eating most our meals there. The staff was great the food was muy rico (absolutely delicious), the price was fabulously in our budget. I highly recommend the place, the atmosphere for any meal was idyllic, feet in the sands, nice entertainment, smiley and enthusiastic staff. Great Great Great... More

I had the steak tacos and they were not very flavorful. The steak was of questionable quality. I normally do not add sauce to tacos, but had to add because they were bland. I couldn't taste the onion and I got one strip of fresh red onion to add to the three tacos. The mango margarita was decent.

One of my favorite places to eat! The ceviche is incredible and the service is five star. Our waiter was so impressive. He was so busy and also entertaining the island's president, Quintana Roo's Secretary of State, and all of their entourage, and each table he gave the same amazing service to. The atmosphere is great as well. Listen to... More

Came here to kill some time while we waiting the ferry. I got food to go because the food at the resort wasn't all that great. Anyways, the garlic fish was delicious and was one of my favorite meals during the trip! The ambiance was pretty chill. I'd skip the cocktails and just order beers.

Located on Medina, on the water. Tables in the sand just adds to the island feel. They had live music while we there. Had the best conch with garlic butter. Hubby had grilled fish that he totally enjoyed. Fun atmosphere with very reasonable prices.

First night on the island and of course I wanted fresh fish so we walked along the beach until we hit Picus. It was a little tempting to play in the sand right away (it was pretty busy so the service was on the slower side), but my parents told me I had to wait until after dinner and Grandma... More

Ate here on 3/25/14. Visited the island for a day. Hired a taxi driver (lived on the island for 30+ years) for about 4 hours, and he recommended this place for somewhere with seafood and burgers. This was THE BEST ceviche ever! I think it was about 90 pesos. If I ever get back to Isla Mujeres, I will be... More
