“Felt like family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

We ate here several times since it was close to where we were staying and had excellent food every time. The help always asked about how our trip was going and treated us like old friends. Everything we had here was good, but they had the freshest side salads with dinner that I just loved. Oh and the bread used for toast for breakfast was scrumptious.

Thank you so much for visiting Barlito Marina Paraiso & writing a review for us. Isla Mujeres is like a big family made up of those of us that all live here & those that continually visit. For some reason within days of someone's first visit, Isla feels like home. The Island welcomes people in & snatches their heart. We feel so lucky to meet so many nice people from all over the world. Everyone is so different but a love for the Island brings us all together.

I am so glad you enjoyed your salad. I am a big salad person & often crave fruits & vegetables after eating only local cuisine for a few days! The fresh produce down here is so wonderful to work with!

We thank you again for your nice review & hope to see you soon for another visit!

My best regards,
Tiffany

“Fabulous place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

I went to Barlito's for lunch today. It exceeded all my expectations. This is my third visit to IM, and the first two times were, well, not good. Everything three years ago looked run own. This visit, however, changed my mind about IM. In particular, going to Barlito's for lunch.
From the road, the Marina Paraiso hotel doesn't look like much. however after entering the hotel grounds, it looked like a Shangrila. The restaurant setting is incredible, with a marina in the foreground, and the hotel pool right there. If you eat over 100 pesos per person of food at the restaurant, you can also use the pool.
Food was great. Wife and daughter had paninis, while I had a 10 oz. mozzarrella burger. The seasoning and fillings of the burger were great. Not anything like Mickey D's.
Tiffany the owner came out to greet and talk with us. She was great.
Go there. Place is fantastic.

BigED, thank you so much for your kind words & review for Barlito Marina Paraiso. We are thrilled that your third trip to the Island was finally a success & we were part of that! Brad really outdid himself with his burger recipe! After we introduced it, I had it every day for a week! We hope you will continue to come over from Cancun for visits & maybe even some day have you stay with us on Isla!
My best regards,
Tiffany

“New location even better than old one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

I have always enjoyed Barlito's restaurant. And when they left Centro and moved to Marina Paraiso I was worried, but boy was I wrong. Their new location is absolutely beautiful and it is so much less stressful than the old one. I no longer feel like I have to eat, and quickly leave, to give someone else a seat. Their food is still delicious and the setting is wonderful. It is well worth going a little bit further from Centro to get there. Try it - you'll be glad you did.

Thank you so much for checking Barlito out in our new location at Marina Paraiso Hotel. We too really love the new atmosphere. Our downtown location was so small, our customers did always feel rushed because people were waiting for tables. It is nice to have so much for space & the tranquility of being on the water, people can sit back enjoy the view & finish their cup of coffee at their leisure. We really appreciate you taking the time to post a review & we hope to see you when you are back on the Island!

Our best regards,
Brad & Tiffany

Thank you so much for your review on our pizza at Barlito. We love our pizza & always found it to be a very popular item on our catering menu when we were downtown. When we moved into our location on Hidalgo at that time Tropical Pomodoro was our neighbor. We really like Mario & Stefania & did not want to compete with their pizza so we only ever had our breakfast pizza on the menu. Now that Barlito is at Marina Paraiso Hotel, we have our traditional pizza on the menu all the time. Thank's again for taking the time to post a review. We look forward to serving you "pie" again soon!

Our best regards,
Brad & Tiffany
