Catch of the day was grouper. Our group ordered it grilled, fish&chips, cooked with cream and shrimp, and in grilled tacos. The consensus was wow! Fantastic fresh fish. Calamari app was some of the best I ever had. Huge margaritas. Hidden gem worth the stop.

Lovely setting to eat in right next to the sea. Really helpful friendly staff and good food. Lots of seafood but they had a couple of vegetarian dishes. Cocktails great too. Would recommend.

Had dinner with friends here and it was a great night. The food was all very good and the portions are huge, Highly recommend the calamari and fish and chips. The service was good and it's a great spot to sit and soak in the ocean.

Never have a written a review about anything online before, but we loved this place so much I found myself wanting to tell everyone about it!! This is hands down the best seafood we've ever had. We went during slow season so we were able to pick our seat right by the water, beachfront. Service was great and the staff... More

Bally Hoo is located on the Enrique's Pier, the first pier on Isla Mujeres. The location is perfect for viewing spectacular sunsets as you enjoy fresh fish and seafood meals among other tasty dishes. One of the waiters told us that the fish on your dinner plate that evening was in the ocean that morning. It is that fresh. Enjoy.... More

July 2015 visit - Bally Hoo is a great beach bar, overlooking a shore full of boats and docks that lead out into the ocean. It has a great view of the sunset, which I got some fantastic shots of as we ate. We sat down after a long day exploring the island, and wanted to cool our jets with... More

Located on the dock, this is a great place for post diving/fishing food and drinks. The mango margaritas are delicious, with fresh mango. The food was great. We tried the shrimp tacos, fish tacos, and coconut shrimp. Everything was expertly prepared. The service is quick and attentive. Everything is very reasonably priced. A wonderful breeze blows off the water while... More

We were only on the island for a few hours as part of a snorkeling excursion, our tour guide recommended this place and one other, unfortunately we had already eaten at the other restaurant before arriving here for drinks and I wish we would have had our lunch here instead! However, I ordered a strawberry margarita and it was awesome!... More
