My husband & I visited Minino's on our trip to Isla Mujeres last week. Minino's is located right by the ferry dock and is right in the downtown area. Their tables are literally located in the sand, so stop by, take your shoes off, and relax. We had the octopus ceviche which was delicious! I had the shrimp with garlic... More

Great food, the coconut shrimp was amazing. They brought chips and salsa while we waited which was very good too! Had huge yummy drinks on a hot day with our feet in the sand. Also, had an awesome view of the water while we ate! Loved it

If you are looking for a place to kick back, stick your toes in the sand, and have a margarita as you watch the ships go by, this is the place. It's also a great place to chat with other tourists and locals. The only issue I can mention is the price listed on the menu for margaritas is not... More

Have no idea how this place made it to the Trip Advisor! It is truly bad. Everything is fried, greasy and overcooked. The only good thing is the service and it is right on the beach but none of this compensate for the feeling of eating bad food.

The first time we ate here, everything was extremely fresh and well prepared; my husband had the grilled lobster (our splurge but still reasonable) which was cooked just right for a pleasant texture and flavor and I had grilled fish filet (not sure what kind of fish but it was extremely moist and delicious). The sides were the usual for... More

This is a super-casual mom-and-pop seafood restaurant right on the beach just north of the ferry terminal. Fresh fish prepared with various sauces, eat off plastic tables while curling your toes in the sand. Very reasonable with great service. Four adults can eat a full meal with Mexican beer and bottled water for about $10 USD per person.

The best tried in three days on la isla. We had ceviche as appetizer and then a filete de pescado relleno de mariscos, which is a surprising mix of fish, cheese and seafood, and a calamar al aiji, a gorgeous grilled squibb chops with a sauce of dried tomato slices. Everything was fresh and excellently balanced in new and good... More

We walked into this place early into our stay on Isla Mujeres. It is on the beach and we were intrigued by the fact that the tables are literally in the sand. Service was friendly and prompt. Some of the best seafood ever. We wound up taking off our shoes before the food arrived and enjoyed having our bare feet... More

Our friends insisted that we try Minino's as soon as we arrived on Isla, and we are very happy that we took their advice! About a 5-minute walk to your left (upon exiting the ferry terminal), you will find the sweet little Minino's - a bit rustic, but in a charming way. We were warmly greeted, left our luggage at...
