One of the local merchants recommended! Mi Amiga speaks fluent Spanish. What a great find. Very casual, locals. Awesome music. Beach Sand, plastic chairs, you are on the marina. Great people/boat watching. Ceviche was the best!! I had the Mixto. Combination of shrimp, octopus and fish, very fresh. Medium portion is filling. Had Pollo tacos that were good with fresh... More

We love going to Picus. We always go fishing a day or two and like to go there to take our catch to be cooked. The staff is nice, the prices are great and the food is always fantastic. They have a nice menu and are right on the beach so you cannot go wrong here.

This is the best fish on the island! We always choose Picus for our last meal on the island..What could be better than a table 10 feet from the ocean in the sand.Nothing fancy here..plastic table and chairs but the sound of the waves splashing on the shore.Each person in our party of 4 chose a different fish selection.I always...

Serves fresh fish daily... and I mean right out of the water. Take a group and get the platter. Arracherra is good too.

For under the equivalent of 15$ USD, we (two people) each had a fantastic meal of "Filete a la plancha" (grilled fish), a beer, and a soda. We ate here after snorkeling and upon the recommendation of the water taxi captain that took us out. We'd highly recommend!

We stumbled upon this just getting to the island on the ferry and waiting for our ride. It's outdoors right on the sand. The fish was amazingly fresh and delicious. The grilled seafood skewer was perfect, especially the conch. The service was very slow, even by island standards and the waiter pointed out to us that tip was not be... More

This is my go o place for seafood when going to Isla Mujeres. It's been around forever and I trust their fish. If you choose Tikinxic fish (Yucatán speciality) then be aware that it will take a while as they light a charcoal fire for that. The ceviche is good, the grilled fish too. I like looking at the catch... More

This place was recommended by Cancun Sailings during our trip over to Isla Mujeres. We had the mixed ceviche as appetizer and then the fried shrimp plate for entré. Both were excellent choices. The beer was cold and margaritas were the best of the whole trip. Definitely a place i would recommend and return to.

Actually met the owners at a baseball game on Isla, the owners sponsor a local team, and they delivered to the baseball field. My husband had a seafood cocktail that was stuffed to the brim with shrimp, clams, octopus, lobster, and delicious. So, after the game we stopped in at their cafe. Owners are on site. Affordable menu compared to... More
