Breakfast

We had pancakes and the colibri omelette for breakfast. The pancakes were light and fluffy. The omelette was adequate, the server was great! We would go back

Food tasted nothing and had no spices whatsoever. Ordered the chicken fajitas and it was a rubbery experience which I did not finish more than three bites of. My boyfriend ordered the enchiladas, equally boring. The mojito was good. We had to spend the rest of the day and the night nearby the toilet so not only the taste was... More

For a humble restaurant like this I think the prices are too high, especially when they calculate the tip themselves to the bill. Food was ok but nothung special.

Colibri was rated very good and was busy, but the service was very slow. It took forever to get the food. We thought they had forgotten us. The food was not that great. The coconut shrimp were big, but not exciting. The side dishes left a lot to be desired. The only thing we enjoyed were the guitar and mandolin... More

We had breakfast at La Isla del Colibri. The offer is satisfying and the coffee is made by an Italian barista machine (Coffee is generally of high quality on Holbox - in contrast to other places in Mexico). The service was okay.

We enjoyed our lunch here and would suggest people try it out while visiting Holbox. The service was friendly. The food was fresh and satisfying. The drinks were delicious and although it was quite warm inside (hot August day) we found a nice spot outside.

Wherever we travel, there is always one place we fall in love with and return several times during the stay; Colibri is the one on Isla Holbox. Good juices, ample breakfasts, and good espresso/cappicinno. The staff is efficient and friendly, the kitchen is clean and accessible, restrooms clean. The omletes are great and the tocino (bacon) is the best I've... More
