We attended this restaurant after spending the day on the beach. The service was extremely slow, took almost 1 hour to get our food. The quality of the food was poor as well. Good place for drinks due to its location but would never eat there again

Buho's is a great place to have a drink and watch the sunset. This is on the public beach. Lots of foot traffic heading back to town.

we stayed next door and had a 30 meter walk over there but apparently we were bothering the staff by sitting there and trying to spending money. We stopped going after that. I like to be at least offered a cold beverage at a bar. go to Tarzan's...much more fun.

Hard to really judge the foid, as the service is the problem here. Extremely slow, so food often arrives cold. No way to tell whether it is caused by wait staff or kitchen.

One of the best point in the Island. Hammocks , swings and nice table on the sand all around the restaurant. It's relaxing in the evening, especially with a good drink watching the sunset.

Sorry to say, but we been around for 10 days and the staff is seriously unfriendly, food average (or less). Takes ages to ve served. I would recommend to only drink a beer or Softdrink and enjoy the view at the bar. Just 100 meters right is the Green Damon Bar - 100x better.

The waiter was nice, but he would not recommend i ordered the ceviche as it was not any good or fresh. Not exactly what you want to hear at a seafront fish restaurant. So we had their pizza, witch was very meh..

This was my favourite bar on Playa Norte beach! Lovely beach bar with swings. I went there almost every day. Staff was great and cocktails good.

We stopped by here for lunch on day. Right on the beach and the bar has cute swings. My husband got he fish and chips and I had the Enchilada Suizas. The Enchiladas were amazing! Totally recommend!

This is the setting you came to isla mujeres for. Yes the food is mediocre and the service not the best but it's such a lovely spot that I'm willing to overlook its drawbacks. And I've sure eaten in a lot worse places.
