Wonderful late lunch

We stopped in with some friends we are traveling with and were very pleasantly surprised. Not fancy by any stretch, but the food is amazing. We shared the coconut shrimp and lion fish and it was the best coconut anything I have ever had. I don't usually like fried food. The red snapper was... read more

Fish fingers were very good as were the chicken fingers. Good guacamole and chips. It's a local town in a town of 500 people. All we had were beers and appetizers, but I hear it's a local favorite!

We spent a delightful evening watching the Super Bowl game at Toby's Restaurant. Great fun was had by all as we eat, drank, and cheered throughout the game. We eat nothing fancy but hamburgers and fajita's were both were done well, were very tasty, and added to the whole experience. A great place to be when they are hosting a... More

First off- the Owner- Toby is a creative, positive, and really likeable guy whose persona affects everything in this simple little restaurant. The food is straightforward-nothing fancy. The main thing here is to order fish. One day we asked Toby if he had anything special and he brought out a 6 pound grouper which he expertly butterflied and served Vera... More

For a yummy casual meal, Toby's is the place to go. Mexican dishes and fresh seafood are all delicious. Great for families, and for larger group gatherings. Say hello to Toby!

The ceviche was tough, the fish undercooked, and all of it was frozen. My stomach did not agree with me after this meal.

Toby's is a great place in Xcalak to grab a meal. Lunch and dinner always something terrific to get from the menu. A wide variety to choose from. Also if you are lucky you might catch some music with the locals!

One of the best meals ever...not exaggerating! Toby's (our chef) met us at the door tired, wet ,and weary from a boat trip from San Pedro. We were the only people there at 3:30 in the afternoon. He opened his kitchen, made us welcome, and brought cold beer and soda. Then we ordered the Day's Special which was Coconut Battered... More
