We chose this restaurant because it was reviewed as authentic, it has friendly service and the food was said to be extremely tasty. We knew it has no air con and you may have to wait at busy times. We arrived at 2pm were seated immediately and enjoyed the breeze of a lovely fan. We enjoyed lime soup, garlic soup,... More

We had dinner here as various people from our hotel recommended it. The restaurant is small and definitely a local cafe. The food was good but very close by is a local restaurant with better food and ambience…Rubens.

This restaurant is a good example of home cooking. Some of the regional cuisine is served here like Panuchos or Sopa de Lima. The food is good. The only problem is that it is a small place and it is full most of the time, full so you have to either arrive at a time when it is not a... More

My wife would tell you to order the bean soup. Make a meal of it. I would tell you to listen to my wife. She felt the call of the soup twice on our trip. The second time was our final meal on Isla. First time, had a torta cubana. Second time had Veracruz-style fish (rolled the dice on that... More

We happened into PocChuk by accident. We were hot, tired and cranky with no idea where to eat so I pointed to the closest place I saw. The fans and the cheerful island decor made us feel better. The cold drinks came quickly which was even better. We marveled at how such a large menu could be produced in the... More

Small portions. Husband ordered french toast kind of a joke. I have Huevos Rancheros. Just kind of plain. Would not go back too many other places with better food.

This restaurant is located a block off of Hildago. There is no air conditioning in the restaurant so it can get hot. It is best to go here either early in the morning or after the sun goes down at night. Food here is very inexpensive. The tacos were very good. The tortillas are different than served at other restaurants... More
