We stopped here and had lunch. Great service, food and view. You sit right there and watch the fishermen come in.

Cozy beach soroundings with an ocean view. Our waiter Alex was amazing. The food was delicious (we can recommend the tacos both fish and steak). Tasty, fresh and totally homemade. Don't forget to order a huge margarita.

Oh, good old Ballyhoo! We always go here the first day we arrive back in Isla. (Our visitors go here almost every day.) The Margaritas are super large and very good.

On the beach, went here for lunch. Stopped in because it was on Mapchicks recommend places. The fish tacos were decent but the fish was fried which I was a bit disappointed in. The price was typical not cheap but not expensive. IMO the only thing this place has going for it is the location..perfect to watch the sunset.

Bally Hoo is the amazing restaurant that sits on the pier behind the Pemex station. They have ridiculously fresh fish and everything we have ever ordered has been fabulous. You can't miss the fish tacos and the Grande Margarita!! They are open breakfast through dinner.

I went with my girlfriend and some friends. The place is just next to a dock with a nice view to the sea and some yachts. We started with great margaritas and the food was delicious. I recommend specially the shrimps. The service was also friendly and the prices were quite reasonable.
