Best sunset on the island!

Twice we enjoyed cocktails, music and the most beautiful Isla Mujeres sunset while hanging out in the palapa restaurant-bar. What a wonderful way to start an evening on the island! It's a great place to hang out, relax, listen to live music and chat with other tourists. Great food, fabulous drinks... read more

We were actually planning to eat at another restaurant which didn't work out. We decided to eat at Bahia Tortuga and weren't disappointed. The service was very friendly and attentive. Rodrigo took great care of us and was very patient--even when we kept sending him back and forth with drink experimentation that never seemed to work out the first time--our... More

We had a nice meal on the ocean which consisted of fresh snapper and braised garlic shrimp. My wife had the shrimp which are plastered with garlic which she could taste for a day. I enjoy the snapper very much. nice meal for the money.

We happened upon this spot while looking to rent a boat. Not only did the owner set us up with a charter but he also managed to serve us one of the best burgers we have ever had. The onion rings are also not to be missed. Danny was so very helpful and his hospitality was tremendous! Thanks for helping... More

Grouper was good and fresh (from a Floridian fisherwoman) and the onion rings are out of this world. Do not recommend a glass of wine...too lite on the pour....but the food is FABULOUS and the ambiance for lunch or sunset cannot be beat for quaint dining experience!!! you are looking out over several sailboats...lovely view!

The restaurant staff were so friendly and kind and the food was soooo good! My husband and I ordered the Philly cheesesteak & the traditional cheese burger. Both were amazingly delicious. We happened upon this place at the end of our trip, but will definitely be back next time we're on the island!
