We went for a casual late lunch to Miriam's during our trip. Food: The food wad wonderful. We had the Chaya empanada, Fish tacos and Pork tacos, and the vegetarian (bean, cheese, pico, and guacamole) nachos (excellent). Everything was fresh, wonderfully flavored and well portioned. The seafood is fresh. Ambiance: A small shack, more like you local taqueria. Clean and... More

As many have commented this is your typical hole in the wall type restaurant. My wife really wanted to try it, I had some doubts initially, but I am glad we did. The empanada’s were very good, service friendly and the cheque small. This is one of the true local restaurants and I would have no problem recommending this place... More

Miriam is slightly off the main drag but worth finding. Essentially a small hut with a handful of tables. The menu is pretty simple with Empanadas being the main event. We opted for Lobster Empanadas (lobster being a staple of Holbox Island) and a fillet of fish. Both were simply served but very tasty and everything is made to order... More

We have just finished our first meal at this petit spot and could not be happier. This is our second last night on Isla Holbox and we will definitely dine here again. The husband and wife team were so welcoming to us (not so great at spanish) and patient while we practised ordering our meals. We were delighted with the... More

Holbox has an abundance--in fact, a glut--of restaurants with menus dominated by pasta and pizza. More traditional Yucateco restaurants need to be sought out, and of the few, Miriam's is the best. A congenial atmosphere, family-run, simple and cheerful, and serving food that is well prepared, traditional cuisine. We sampled many dishes over the two weeks of our stay, with... More

This is your typical hole in the wall kind of place. Good, wholesome, tasty and rightly-priced food. There aren't many cheap restaurants in Holbox that are appealing but this Mom-and-Pop style restaurant is. Taste sime fish prepared in different scrumptious ways, tacos, chicken and a few things more. Ample menu with lots of daily specials. Cheap beer too. Perfect for... More

A very basic place with plastic chairs and tables outside, and some inside. A very varied, low cost menu, with meals of the day. We had quesadillas, soup and burritos. No complaints.

The breakfast we had (omletes and empanades) were so oily and generally not that good. Some of the vegetables in the omlete were canned, and the place just doesnt look very clean to me.
