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

Picus - it's simple, humble, laid back, clean bathrooms, awesome food and wonderful people (owner/staff) ...I love this place! And a real bonus for the trip was that music man and his family were back again (and he also played at Sunset Grill this time)..lovely family and he's so talented!

We ate here our first night on Isla this year. Great food and decent prices, plus a beautiful place to eat on the sand.

If sitting out on the beach with your toes in sand which enjoying some of the freshest and most flavorful fish you'll ever find is your idea of a good time then you have to make your way to Picus. Great place to kick back enjoy some great food and drink while the waves soothe away all your cares.

We ordered the whole fried fish and chicken nachos. Both were excellent but the server all but otherwise ignored us. We had to keep signaling to other servers for help and to order more beer. I had the opportunity to eat here a second time and passed it up in favor of Olivia's and was glad I did.
