Great location and standard pub fare for those who crave some North American favourites. Try their Jaxarita and the nachos deluxe con pollo. Jax is the number one sports bar on Isla so be prepared for rabid sports fans especially during NFL playoffs.

If you are paying by American dollar, they really gouge you on the exchange rate. When we were there, the exchange rate was 17 to 1. These yokels were gouging people with a 10 to 1 exchange rate (almost half). We had pesos so it didn't matter, but their exchange rate was offensive so we didn't go back. I felt... More

The manager is wonderful. The staff is ok. I think because their English is not good, they are a little shy. The appetizers are good. The drinks are good, but a little on the high end. You do pay for the location.

My family and I have probably been to this place at least 20 times and have never had a bad meal or drink. Views are spectacular and the wait staff has always been exceptional!

If you get tired of Mexican food you can head here. Across the street from the ocean so nice view. They had the olympics on when we were there. The owner does not honor accurate conversion on US dollar but they do let you know on their menu I believe. Pay with a credit card and problem solved.

We stopped here on the way to our hotel and on our way to the ferry to leave. It was a great intro to the island and a great last impression. The pina coladas are great and the spicy margaritas are AMAZING!

The food is great at Jax , we ate dinner their 5 out of 7 nights we was their. We stayed at an all inclusive place, with a fancy chief but Jax's steak blowed their steak out off the water.

Great Atsmosphere and awesome service. My wife and I ate on the rooftop patio just before sunset and loved every minute.

I travelled with 2 first timers to Isla Mujeres 2 weeks ago. They were interested in watching the sunset while having dinner. Although we arrived too late for the sunset, we enjoyed really great food. I had fish tacos, the other guests ate pulpo ceviche and assorted seafood appetizers. The prices are fair, on par with what you would pay... More

For those who likes Bar food and beer, this is the place. Nice location, nice atmosphere, good service. Get on the second floor that has a nice view.
