“The place they call you by your name...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Certainly the best spot on the island to start the evening, dance and have drinks with friends. Mix of local people and tourists make it for nice encounters. The two owners were really nice and friendly, the staff is great and the barman is really cute! Great atmosphere. Good drinks. Great spot.

“LOOK UP!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Above the street you will find this gem, with live music, good food and drinks, charming Paola from Perugia, and great atmosphere! We loved being above the fray.

“Best bar on Hidalgo street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Again another bar (also serving food) that is 'hidden' under the Restaurants category at Isla Mujeres so doesn't come up under best bars reviews. It really is the most authentic option at a street where cheesy bars - targeting people who...well...'want to still feel they are at their home towns' - dominate...Every night there is a different music band and the place has a balanced mix of locals and tourists. On the night we went a very good live salsa band was playing and there was a really good party atmosphere and vibe. I didn't try the food but in terms of drinks you cannot go wrong with tequila! Cocktails were good too and bar staff friendly and cheerful. Would definitely recommend out of all bars on that street.

“The place for live music on Isla”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

A nice mix of locals and tourists, La Terraza gives the feeling of a bar who likes to cater to both. We really liked the salsa band that plays Monday and Tuesday there. Staff is freindly. Try to get a seat behind the band on the deck, the fresh air and nice views plus the ban cant be best.

“Nice people watching and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We wanted to grab a quick dinner while we were downtown, and hadn't tried this restaurant yet, so we made it our choice. It is on an upper level under a palapa and open-air, so there is wonderful people watching from up there. My son had the chicken flautas and they were good - and lots of them. He has a large appetite and was full. I had plantains stuffed with cheese - a local specialty I have not tried before, as I have not seen it offered in the restaurants. It was good, and very filling. We had good service, the food was good, and the prices were very reasonable, and we enjoyed people watching. We didn't stay late, but they have live music and dancing most nights after 9PM. The only negative was the bartender (right across from our table) smoking cigarettes right at the bar. The island has a no-smoking indoors policy now and it is rare that we are bothered with smoke during dinner. It was sad to be bothered by it from an employee. I would have rated them excellent had it not been for that.
