This was my first meal on Isla this visit and my first time to Picus. I started with shrimp cocktail. The shrimp was plentiful but the sauce was too sweet for my taste. The guacamole was good if a bit underseasoned. I enjoyed the fresh fish and the 6 year old in me LOVED the buttered white rice. Good service... More

We visit Isla Mujeres a couple times a year and always stop by Picus for dinner. My husband and I had a fried fish for two people and it was the best fish I've ever eaten! It was so good we ate there 2 more nights while on our trip to Isla. Their shrimp cocktail was also some of the... More

We were looking for a good local restaurant to have fresh lobster and asked several locals. We heard "the food is always good at Picus" more than once. So we gave it a try. Sat 20 feet from the water's edge, had fresh lobsters (which we were able to select from several choices) and a great meal. The price was... More

We took the ferry from Puerto Juarez and got to Isla around lunchtime heading for the beach. After reading reviews of possible exploitation at beach restaurants, we decided to eat first and we are so glad we did! Picus had the best seafood tacos we have had! We got an order of shrimp and an order of fish. The fish... More

For all those who wish to slap me for not trying Picus on our earlier trips, the line is now forming. We loved everything about it, from the sand floor that starts the moment you step off the sidewalk to the friendly, prompt service to the perfect sunset view to the excellent food. Feeling that even a small ceviche was... More

Had a couple of meals here and both times the quality of the food was excellent. The fish fillet with garlic mushrooms and fries was fantastic as was the prawn ceviche. Prices were great and the service was first class. Added bonus of live music both times I was there and its such a great place to watch the goings... More

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
