Palapa overlooking the sea at sunset

Random musicians. Great spot to watch the sunset. Awesome food. Great service. The fish is fresh and if you look down from the palapa, you might even see the fish being filleted! You can also bring Your own catch and they will prepare it for you!!

The drinks were were healthy and the staff was pleasant. The salsa and chips were outstanding, which probably made the Margaritas taste better. The view was great with the fishermen bringing in their catch and preparing them for sale. Most relaxing.

Hi, Unfortunately I went there for recommendation and I fancy fish, octopus and squid. After trying not only i was disappointed by cold cold fish and hard old potatoes but also my stomach felt away over the edge. The octopus was over salted and felt like old, like it was cooked on the stove, not grilled how it was described... More

Another little local dive type place located on the west side, near the fishing boats. Recommended by the locals as one of their favorites. Primarily local clientele, not many tourists. Great ceviche, fish taco's and pico/chips. Casual place to take in the local atmosphere, watching the boats, the local families play with their kids on the beach, and the boats... More

One of our cab drivers offered Minino's as a recommendation after we asked where we could get the best, freshest grilled fish. It was his only answer and he said it with a smile. We were totally up for it. Upon arriving to the restaurant, which was tarps over a kitchen area and plastic patio furniture, the young son of... More

We went to Minino's for one reason only. The fried whole Hog fish! We were not disappointed to say the least! They let us pick out the one we wanted, then they scaled it and presented the fish to us before frying it. Took us back to when we were first on Isla 20 yrs ago, and had fried whole... More

There are a lot of restaurants along the main road of town, right down the street from the ferry dock (to get back to Cancun). This place looked as good as any. We were not disappointed. Good, fresh fish, decent drinks, and tables right on the sand. Reasonable prices. Easy in and out.

Had a wonderful dinner with a delicious shrimp cocktail and a Carribean King crab bigger than my head! It was perfectly cooked and the meat was tender- sweet and delicious! We'll be back soon!

Great dinner here - came back several times to watch the sunset, drink beer and devour some delicious, fresh, grilled fish. Throw off the flip-flops and dig your toes into the sand while you eat. Watch the boats return from their catch, and gear down into a relaxing dinner.

This was my last dinner on Isla when I visited in December. I was very much looking forward to a lobster dinner atop the new palapa they built. And I figured with all of the good reviews, why not spend a little extra as a send-off this time around. Well I wish I would have saved my money instead. After... More
