Ivan the owner - is an amazing host. His restaurant is just off the main pedestrian shopping street. He was so friendly and welcoming - he actually custom made our dinners and they were awesome. Unfortunately, we found Aluxes on our last night in Isla Mujeres. But will definitely revisit next time we are in Isla. Damian and Anne London,... More

this is not just a coffeehouse! Try dinner here. You will NOT be sorry! The Gaberdina Shrimp, the Coco Shrimp and the Tuna were just amazing! The table next to ours said the lobster was the best they had ever had. And Ivan and his staff just make the experience even more Perfect! We eat here every time we are... More

Dined here on a Friday evening and the name is a bit deceptive, as it is really a nice restaurant also. I had a grilled chicken meal served with fries and salad. My wife had the grilled tuna. Both the chicken and tuna were good. The fries were a bit light on the portion. The service was good and the... More

we discovered this near the end of our stay...too bad as the food was excellent...the owner has an obvious passion for his business. Go try it out.

Just had a wonderful dinner. Flan steak melts in your mouth and seared tuna is great! Margaritas were strong and delicious. But the best part was the friendly, fun service and amazing shots! We're coming back for breakfast.

I heard good things about this place. We went for breakfast on a Monday morning and when we arrived the owner told us his cooks didn't show so he was closed, but that he would be open the following day. We came back the next day and the wait staff and cooks didn't really seem to be with it. All... More

Just wondered into Aluxe's while shopping on the Island. First thought was the place was cozy and Ivan (the bartender, operator) offered us a meal. We only wanted drinks and so we sat at the bar. Alex takes great pride in preparation and presentation with food and drinks and his passion for the trade is admirable. Always smiling and chatty,... More
