Hog Fish!

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... read 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

my husband did the 1/2 day fishing trip organized by Martin. Martin was instrumental in keeping in contact with us to set up a date & time. The boat left at 0800 hrs & returned at 1530 hrs!!! What a great day on the water. My husband caught yellow tails, white & red grouper & a 3 foot tuna! The... More

I had an amazing, high quality simple dinner (think plastic furniture on the beach - this place is not fancy) here with some friends (one of whom had been here 8 months before and wanted to return); simple lobster tail with rice and beans, fun, friendly service, cheap beers, good cocktails, fantastic and authentic seafood (and you knew the seafood...

we has shrimp cervice in the loft over looking the bay towards Cancun. The restaurant is downtown on the beach. We think they have the best margaritas on the island, made with triple sec, abundant rim of salt. We even stop in for a drink when going to another restaurant to eat.

We have been vacationing in Isla for 17 years. This restaurant has been our favorite since we first tried it at its' original location. They are on the main drag, on the water, towards North Beach when you get off the ferry. Now they have added a palapa with a second floor and great views of the mainland. You can... More
