It fells right at home and the artistic atmosphere of this little restaurant, with a lot of art and history makes the place very special. They make amazing fresh fruit juices and smoothies to live for. Tried the coconut fish fillet, that comes with rice and a side of fresh fruits, and still remember it. Waitress was very friendly and... More

My friend Dona Lolita and her husband Don Marco own and run La Isla and have since 1977 or thereabouts. Yes, I'm a tad prejudiced, but here's the thing: the food is delicious, plentiful and the prices are competitive. The owners are very supportive of live music and the arts so periodically, a local musician, Don Victor, will show up... More

We went to this place for breakfast twice, the attention was incredible, very fast and exactly what we required, we asked special things for our baby and the personal was really helpful. The food was wonderful, the motulenos eggs were fantastic. We really enjoyed this restaurant!

I ordered the chicken enchiladas swiss which comes with a creamy sauce with a hint of lime and melted swiss cheese on top. The cream sauce reminded me of one of the best cream sauces I have ever had in Rome a few years ago. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

Stayed in Holbox for a few days, and walk past this restaurant a few time, but never stopped or went in. It was always lively, seems like a place that would be fun to have food at. Then finally, on my last day I had an hour to kill before catching the ferry back, so stopped there for breakfast. Had... More

This is a unique looking restaurant with great interiors full of little details, posters, and items inspired Mexican and Latin America culture. The breakfast is great and quite affordable... Lovely place to start your day.

We went there because someone recommended it (the best fruit juices and smoothies). We chose two smoothies and they told us after 20 minutes that they didn't have the fruits to do them. Nice service, but not so nice food. The + on this restaurant is that they accept credit cards.

Good food here, particularly the huge fruit salad and granola for breakfast, best coffee I found too. You'll be entertained by the decor while you wait, colourful and Mexican.

If you want a typical Yucateca breakfast, this is the place to go. The Huevos motuleños are delicious and the smoothies - especially the holboxeño, with chaya - are peerless!
