The fish is fantastic, and the philly needs to be tried since it is the specialty. It is a small boutique hotel/bar but has a very nice vibe.

On our last night on Isla Mujeres we decided to try Bahia Tortuga for a Philly and Burger. We walked in and had a seat. We were there for over 10 minutes and never approached about a drink much less ordering food. The bar only had 3 or 4 patrons but 2 people behind it working. After waiting and never... More

Grouper sandwich is wonderful. Atmosphere very inviting. Closes around 8-9 PM out of respect for the guests who stay there. Good to see Danny again. We missed seeing Rhonda!

Loved the live music and the friend bar staff. One of the better views for the bars along this strip. Also visited Soggy Peso, however liked this bar just a bit more!

Had the hamburger and onion rings for dinner. Both were very delicious and cooked just right. Nice atmosphere with a live music to boot. I will definitely be back for more. The owner was present and went out of his way to ensure a great meal and service for everyone. I highly recommend you stop in and see for yourself.

Came here after hitting a few other places around the island and had a great time. The manager/owner that was there was very accommodating and excited for our business. They had live music and a dock with a porch swing on it. It was a nice size area with enough space that everyone is not crowded together. Food and drinks... More

The food is good the help very friendly, From Seafood to Nachos to a Philly cheese steak. Pricing is mid range for the island. But when the band is playing it rocks...Excelllent atmosphere over looking the harbor..... A good place to have a coctail and watch the sunset over Cancun
