Look no further, you must eat here on your next trip to Isla Mujeres. On our 2nd visit to Cancun made a trip to Isla Mujeres just to eat here. I'm not a fish person but their Tikin Xic fish is so....delicious. It takes time to cook but It's worth the wait (25mins) & is enough food for 4 people... More

Filled with locals- it's a charming place with a great bar- serving three types of Havana Club Cuban rum for your Cuba libre. Excellent fresh garlic fish, so tasty. Excellent shrimp ceviche too. Doesn't look like much but it delivers! Prices are fair and service is friendly- muy bueno. I recommend it.

We had two different locals recommend this place. We went and were excited, hoping for exceptional grilled shrimp. I had the grilled shrimp and wife had garlic grilled shrimp. Both styles of shrimp were very similar and truly tasted good. But the salad was mostly shaved lettuce and carrots and the rice had no flavor and partially hard. We wanted... More

If you go to Isla Mujeres it is a MUST that you eat at PICUS Cockteleria. It is a simple restaurant , no frills, but with the best food on the island. Their seafood (We all ate fish) is the freshest you can imagine . The cocktails are delicious , I ordered a Mango daiquiri that taste as if it... More

This little spot has great seafood. You can even watch them bring the fresh lobsters out of the water. The presentation is amazing. Gotta try the FISH TACO'S!

There are plenty of fresh fish eateries on Avenida Ruida Medina in El Centro, but which ones do it up right? Picu's is one of the best! Conch (caracol in Spanish) isn't as easy to find on Isla as it once was but it's well worth seeking out and Picu's does it right. Think of a paperback novel sized thin... More

My wife and I have a tradition now. We go to the same restaurant the first night on Isla Mujeres, Picus Cockteleria. It has a great view for sunset and the best and freshest seafood on the island. A great value for the price and you get to actually eat on the beach with your feet in the sand.

We ate at Picus a couple of times on this trip, and the food was better than we remembered. We had the mixed (fish & shrimp) ceviches, quacamole and filets fixed a couple of different ways. The food was fresh, prepared and served well, and there was always more than enough. The servers were friendly and helpful, so we enjoyed... More
