The Colibri has a very central location and that's obviously the reason why many people go to that place for food. I've been there at the beginning of my longterm stay on Holbox and what I didn't like is that I wanted to order a juice and the waiter recommended a drink which was more expensive (+10 MXN). The food... More

We entered because of its exotic facade, full of colors and art, and we found a very local restaurant with a great cuisine and great people serving. We have a mayan fish, which was delicious, and some enchiladas. Everything was great.

The service is very good and friendly. The breakfast menu is varied but a bit pricey for breakfast. Our meals were okay but nothing special. The atmosphere is fun with lots of curios to look at. Give yourself time as this is a small restaurant and they only cook one table at a time. They accept credit card and are... More

I went here two times to have breakfast. There are many options, but I had the pancakes with fruit one day. And the other day I had a yoghurt, granola and honey breakfast. It was really good! They have really nice fresh juices as well, but also good coffee etc. The price is good and the staff is friendly. I... More

We've been to Colibri several times now and we enjoyed every single meal. A lot of times I can't find vegetarian dishes on the menu in Holbox ( I don't count "salad" as a dish...) but Colibri offers a couple of vegetarian options and I got stuck with their super delicious "Arroz Colíbri". My boyfriends favorites were "Pulpo a la... More

I don't know how the rest of the food is... I ordered coffee, juice, and ceviche. All were great. The biggest plus of this place is they use real coffee, not Nescafe! If you are looking for real coffee in Isla holbox, this is the place to go. Totally worth it to me just for that.

About half of the years I've been to Holbox Colibri has been delightful. The other half of the years it's been about average. Average isn't terrible, but when you're on an island full of good food you need something a little extra.

This was our favorite place to have breakfast during our 7 day trip to holbox. The food and coffee were delicious (try the more typical stuff you won't regret it). The staff was particularly kind too, we had a nice time with Rojo especially!
