Roberto & Maria are always very welcoming and appreciate you. We always try to make it there a few times each visit. Love the enchiladas & grouper fish. Maria always has a smile on her face. Great place!

We dined at little gem of a spot multiples times, and loved everything we tired! From the huevous motulenous to the mixto ceviche, it was all outstanding. Roberto cooking in the back, and Mary up front make a great team. Roberto even added chorizo to...More

With every passing year Mexico and Isla Mujeres unfortunately becomes more Americanized. Places like la Bruja are refreshingly authentic. La Bruja is almost like being invited to eat in a Mexican home. Spoken Spanish is not a requirement to eat here, but it is helpful,...More
