I thoroughly enjoyed my shrimp pasta, but no atmosphere sitting on street level with traffic rushing by. The staff had to run to a store to provide red wine.

The service and the food were great! We both had the BBQ Chicken special with mashed potatoes, coleslaw, and salad. Yum! They also have an amazing pineapple habanero sauce on the side.

Mediocre service even when there's hardly anyone there, pretty average food. Disappointed that they kept getting our drink orders wrong.

Great 'street food' at Tacos Scooby, the price is great and the taste is too. In the winter this is a very popular spot for the visiting snowbirds.

We had wonderful tacos and service when we were in town in June. Tourist season was over and the locals were all very welcoming and pleasant. Great food, great prices, and great cold beer. Would definitely return.

Scooby's is a fun little open air place right on one of the streets in Melaque. We were a group of 7 and everyone really enjoyed their meals. The biggest hit was the lamb ribs which were tender and so flavourful! Many of us had...More

Octavio and Christina have a fabulous menu of ribs, chicken, steak, fish and tacos. The restaurant is open year round, the prices are good and the BBQ is to die for. I had the best grilled whole pacific lobster. It was huge. My husband had a steak that he said was very tender and flavourful.
