Great food & service !

If you wish to spoil yourself with a good dinner in Isla Mujeres this is the place to go! The restaurant managed much more modern than other restaurants around. The service was great and food was delicious. Highly recommended !

We loved their backyard! Great ambiance and good service from nice people. However, I think we ordered the most "boring" dish on the menu; the shawarma wrap. Nothing very unique about it.. But loved the place and will give it another go:) remember: closed on Sunday's and Monday's.

Fantastic food and the outside seating is beautiful. We had no reservation on a Saturday night with a party of 5, but they got us in with just a 30 minute wait at the bar. Yaron, the owner, was as lovely as he is handsome. Even my 15 year old daughter was smitten! I wasn't sure i would like Mediterranean... More

This was one of the most unique restaurants we ate at on the island. Food and atmosphere were great. With one exception; they have cats that the staff feeds and they are constantly rubbing up against you while you are eating. Personally I think it is unsanitary. I wouldn't go back for that reason.

Easily my favourite restaurant on the island! The restaurant itself is beautiful with lovely soft lighting. The food was delicious! I especially loved the labane, pita bread and moussaka. The wine was also great. Very reasonable prices!

All dishes are great, especially the maftoom and the olive chicken. Its to bad that this place only opens for a few hours a day.
