Peach chipotle mojitos

Get the peach chipotle mojito - so delicious and doesn't skimp on the alcohol either. All of the flavoured cocktails were great - friends and I ordered a few and shared them.

This is a very good to excellent restaurant. We ate here twice in a week. Most of the food anyone in our party ordered was unique and excellent. Tamarind fish was a highlight. A few dishes were a bit bland, hence the 4 stars rather than 5. But compared with every other restaurant along Hidalgo St or the other higher... More

This was my favorite restaurant during our stay in Isla Mujeres. Excellent fish tacos. The Caribbean dish with the coconut in it was delicious too. Innovative drinks. The only reasons I gave them a 4 rather than a 5? Price a little higher than other restaurants and I felt mojitos were a little weak. Bring cash, like most restaurants in... More

We ate here twice in one day, so that tells you that the food is good, even very good. After a delicious breakfast we had an awful time getting our bill. We had to ask for it three times, and honestly, we spent about the same time waiting for the bill as we did ordering and eating breakfast. It was... More

This was the best restaurant we went to during our trip to Isla Mujeres. It is very close to the Playa Norte resorts. It had a more interesting menu than other restaurants in the area. It restaurant had a nice atmosphere and excellent service.

Very nice place, great ambiance, clean and beautiful setting. Everyone was very attentive and seemed happy to be working there. The owner Lola was super friendly, made the smoothie herself, and has a pleasant demeanor. Vegan and gluten free options. We had brunch - smoothie (coconut, lime, banana, cashew, dates, and coconut milk), eggs, plantains, toast. We will be back!

Yesterday we stopped in for cocktails and was so impressed went back this morning for a healthy breakfast. The watermelon mojito was simply fantastic as was my wife's pineapple ginger margarita. For breakfast we both ordered the fresh fruit with yogurt and granola which was fantastic and a very large portion. Organic coffee was bottomless and the best we have... More

Very friendly service on a busy night is always a good sign. Terrific selection on the menu of veggie items - all at decent prices for Hidalgo ave. Great people watching from street-side tables. Food was excellent and very attractively presented. We'll be back again.

Really enjoyed brunch here. Ciabatta rolls are to die for. Most amazing thing may have been the French toast rolled in coconut. I also appreciated being able to get a cocktail to go. Service was good, everyone spoke English which was helpful. I'd recommend to anyone.
