Fried fish and ceviche is a must!

We stopped in for lunch after a long morning of snorkeling, so we were hungry! We were 3 adults and one child (9 years old). The service was friendly and as expected for a beach side restaurant. I don't get some of the negative reviews about the service being slow, did you not look around... read more

The margaritas were generous. My son loved the fresh coconut. I had the whole fish which was delicious. My husband had the lobster which was awesome and my son had the shrimp which was scrumptious. We loved the restaurant so much, we ended up eating their twice. The seafood was fresh and the service was impeccable. Loved eating on the... More

We arrived the end of evening and only 2 other tables were taken. It was enjoyable to have your feet in the sand and listen to the ocean. However there was no breeze that evening so it was hot! Those in our group who had the pescado veracruz raved about the meal. The others were not so impressed with theirs... More

We only ordered drinks here, but it was also where we booked our Whale Shark Tour. I highly recommend Mininos if you want to swim with whale sharks. They served us fruit before boarding the boat. The ride out was long, but Capitan Elmer made it as comfortable as possible. Once we arrived at the breeding grounds, everything was explained... More

This was one of our favorite places to enjoy an afternoon drink, some chips and salsa, and delicious ceviche. While some other places on the strip are a little more done up, the beach side feel of Minino's is something that's difficult to forget. In the evening, the fluorescent lighting can be a little harsh, but, honestly, if I'm complaining... More

Delicious fresh food (mainly seafood) served in a shack-style open restaurant right on the beach and the main strip in Isla Mujeres! Perfect if you want tasty, quality, reasonably priced food in a place valued by both locals and tourists! I had lobster and it was served with rice, beans and salad whilst my mum and sister had fried fish... More

Mixed seafood cocktele was outstanding and I'm ready to go back to try other things like ceviche and whole fish and frappes. All looked great and need to be tried - by me! And the waitstaff was great too. We had just come from the beach and when I reached for my wallet, I realized I didn't bring enough $$.... More

The first time I visited Isla Mujeres my husband and I went here for lunch. We sat in the back and dug our feet in the sand and watched the boats come in bringing tourists from the mainland. We ordered fried whole fish with garlic and drank out of coconuts. Three years later every time we come to isla mujeres... More

Mininos is one of the first places we eat each time we visit Isla. Mininos has the best cocktéle de camarónes and cocktéle de mixto.

I had the mixed (fish, shrimp, octopus) ceviche and it was amazing. Completely fresh and tasty. I also liked the habanero side sauce they provided. Great relaxed place where you can sit with your feet in the sand overlooking the marina. You can see further upstairs but it can be very hot up there depending on the time of day.... More
