Good Micheladas!

Very busy across from the zocolo dt. Had a pretty good breakfast but the micheladas were great sitting outside watching the world go by, dusty dirt streets and all.

We stopped in for breakfast and enjoyed the eggs Valladolid style and the chilaquiles. Both were so very good. I would definitely return!

We ate here twice, and stopped two more times for drinks. Great mojitos. Food was very good both times. If you get a seat outside, it's a great place to eat or sip a drink while you watch the world go by on the square in the evening. Prices are comparable to other, similar places on the island. Friendly staff.... More

After walking by this restaurant on many occasions and seeing it usually full, we thought that we should give it a try. We should have kept on walking! We ordered the guacamole, grilled garlic shrimp and grilled fish fillet plates. What was served to us were small portions which had little flavour and were obviously over cooked.

Certainly the best coffee we had on the island. Friendly waiters. Great variety of fresh fruit drinks. Loved the chicken tacos covered in black bean sauce.

We went to the island of Holbox. Instead of the ferry took a water Taxi same price and they run on your schedule. We were walking and came across this restaurant. The décor was Mexican and was quite busy with a lot of objects. We had guacamole with chips. The guacamole was well prepared and the salsa they served was... More

THIS PLACE IS TO AVOID, IT´s DIGUSTING!!! most of the people are probably impressed of the paintings that have the only function to distract from the fact that this is only an old garage like so many other restaurants on Holbox. As my partner complaind about their chewing-steaks, the only reaction of the waiter was: OK! As he brpught the... More

We ate at Calibri the first time for lunch where my husband enjoyed tacos and I the fried rice with shrimp; both were delicious and also had large portions. After that it was breakfast almost every other day- the huevos rancheros is very good and comes with a side of black beans and the hot cakes are also tasty. One... More

just finishing up a fantastic plate of camarones al coco. It was fantastic. Served with a very yummy fruit salsa. We will definitely return. It is also a great location for people watching. Staff is great as well.
