“Monchis is a great option for vegetarians on Isla”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Even though Monchi's may not have vegetarian dishes on the menu, Ramon does a fantastic job making substitutions of vegetables for meat and creates truly unique local food that tastes fantastic. It's a fun place to sit and enjoy the local comings and goings as you sit at either their indoor or outdoor tables. Ramon is the ultimate host and server making everyone feel welcome and catering to your every need. We eat here at least once every time we visit Isla Mujeres.

“It's Where We Send Our Guests!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We recommend Monchis to all our guests! The food is always fantastic, the atmosphere is relaxing and the owner is always at the restaurant to take care of the customer. The stuffed Grouper, The Shrimp, The Arrachera....It is all FANTASTIC!

“New favorite restaurant for Isla Mujeres veterans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

As a family we've been going to Isla every other year for more than a decade, and this is our new favorite restaurant! We were introduced to it by the cook, also a waiter at Cafe Cito (a delicious breakfast spot), and went two nights in a row. All the specials were delicious: tuna steak, stuffed grouper, shrimp (coconut, Diablo and guajillo), surf & turf, pineapple fried rice...yum! And the kids loved the burritos and quesadillas. Also be sure to try the Miama Vice drink :)

“Quick supper”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Our first and only visit was for a quick supper of tacos. We found them to be good, but nothing special. Maybe the main entrees are better.
