The ostrich was amazing, and the rib eye was impeccable. Chimichurri presented a wonderful little accent to already fantastic food. They have quality Argentinian-inspired food and a great selection of Argentinian wines as well. Definitely worth repeat visits!

We were lucky to hear about this from another visitor. Up the steps you find a bright space. The food is delicious and we had the monster prawns. Sunset was free, but was the most special way to end a romantic night.

The nicest staff around, very attentive and no problem with English. Great view and breeze from atop the building. Had steak and fish while there and both were excellent. Caprese salad was wonderful. But THE bomb are the caipirinhas!

We had high hopes for this restaurant and it was a long way up. We could see the beach and town from that position and the sunset was a bonus. Ate delicious shrimp and could have gone back every night.

We have eaten in La Parilla Juan many times over several visits to Holbox. Lovely rooftop dining, excellent service, and most important, really good food. I especially like the seafood skewers. Service is very good. This restaurant has been around for a long time and is consistently good.

We went to La Parilla Juan after reading about its great sunset location. Lovely mojitos, amazing sea bass carpaccio up on the roof near the zocalo. Also, Alejandro, our server, was a rock star. A Holbox treasure.

Ate at this restaurant when visiting Holbox. There were so many stairs to get up there, it's on the third floor of the building. But once we got there the view was beautiful. You could see the ocean and town. I got the honey shrimp and it was really good. Try the Amaretto Colada, I had never had this drink... More

Juan has put a lot of effort and carino into his restaurant. We have eaten here over the last 8 years and it has always been a very enjoyable experience. Some times as one of the reviews mentioned, the music is not the best, but all you have to do is ask the waiter to change it, and they will... More

We really enjoyed our meal at La Parilla de Juan. You have to look for it a bit - it's on the third floor of a building (seating is both inside and outside on the rooftop patio) about one block east of the square one the street headed toward the hotel zone. We had lobster risotto and one of the... More

Food and location are great. The choice of music is not. Ate one dinner through an entire Macy Gray CD...yuck!
