Best food I had in Holbox

Great atmosphere, kind staff, good, simple food. I love this place and its colorful design. We were craving a good fish dinner and its exactly what we got. I like that they really invest in the quality of the fish and in cooking it well more than trying something fancy. When you have great fish all... read more

We had a nice dinner here during our visit to Holbox. We had fish which tasted really great. The atmosphere is funny, there's lots of details on the shelves and walls. The restaurant offers free wifi, there is no AC (as in most places on the island). Bring mosquito repellent!

We had lunch twice in the Colibri. Mexican food like taco's. The taco marisco tasted very well. The juice-bowls were also very tasteful (and big bowls). Nice little 'terrace' in front of the restaurant to watch the people go over the Island. Compared to other restaurants, a little bit more expensive.

The best place to eat. Service is kind and all food is fresh, evry thing is made at the moment you order. Juices are the best I've tasted. Affordable prices and nice environment make you feel at home ;).

This one has a higher than expected rating here on TA. Shills? Breakfast may be good, and the usual smoothies are good (not much to screw up!). However, dinner was extremely bland and tasteless. I had the Tikin-Xic Maya style fish, and they have no idea how that should be prepared. My wife got some shrimp kebab sticks which were... More

This is our favorite breakfast spot on Holbox. The food is good, but the location is better. Our typical breakfast is pancakes and fruit, but the real stand out is the coffee. It is the best I have had on Holbox, maybe in Mexico. We ate lunch there once, it was quite good. I had the fish tacos, which were... More

Great little place for breakfast. They made us coffee and eggs to order. We were very pleased and will defiantly be back for lunch or dinner! The staff we spoke with friendly and knowledgeable, very nice guy!

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
