I have been eating fish tacos all over Isla Mujeres. Minino's was recommended to us by a local resident of the island. Minino's did not fail me. They were delicious and so were the beans and pico de gallo that were served with them. It's not fancy but the friendly staff and great food more than make up for the... More

Our taxi driver recommend this restaurant for lunch since I did not want to eat at a tourist destination restaurant. It's not pretty but humble. But what matters is the food and drinks. I was pretty impressed. Large margaritas and good seafood. Not bad. And we got a song while we ate.

Seafood place where we sat and watched the local fishermen unload their catch of the day. The ceviche was great and the food was fresh and well. prepared. Only negative was the flies were really attracted to me in this restaurant.

It was recommended to us that we visit Minino’s for their ceviche. The restaurant is located in town, right on the beach. While the location is nice, the service is a bit lacking and the food (including the ceviche) is very average. You might want to stop here for a drink, but there are many other places in town which... More

We ordered a shrimp ceviche and it was delicious. Everything tastes extremely fresh. The chips and salsa they give before the food is just perfect, it hits the spot. We also had cocktails which were strong just the way we like them. The only thing is the cleanliness is a little off but it is understandable due to the extreme... More

We enjoy all the restaurants along the water, so we had high expectations for Minino's. We sat upstairs, which was great for seeing the sunset and the boats coming in for the evening. Our waiter, Alex, was wonderful. He was friendly and helpful, and we thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with him in spite of our limited Spanish and his limited... More

Very beachy setting. Plastic chairs and table, wash basin available by bathrooms with soap! Went and grabbed a table close by waters edge. Saw everyone eating cerviche and whole fish so we did too! Ordered large cerviche filled with various fish. So fresh! From our table view we saw the guys bringing in the freshly caught fish and selling them.... More

If you wanted the freshest day boat seafood, Mininos has it. Ceviche, octopus al ajillo (the best!), filet Veracruzana, whole snapper or grouper... This is what Mininos does best. Eat that. The rice is decent, the beans are good, the salad is obligatory at best. But you will have the freshest, best tasting fish at fast food prices. You're not... More

I was looking for fresh whole fish and found it here. It was delicious and a great value. I am not sure the total weight, but I would guess half kilogram. 140 pesos ($7.80 US) incredible. I got it fried & it was pan fried without breading.

This is a true beach restaurant as the floor is sand and is right on the water. The shrimp ceviche was excellent and the portion was huge. The catch of the day was interesting as it was fried grouper. Check out the attached picture. For day trippers from Cancun it is very close to the ferry dock. Service was great... More
