I have enjoyed many a good meal at Ruben's and my last visit in April was no exception. The best enchiladas mole on the island IMHO and my husband is a fan of his soups. Soup for lunch on a hot Mexican island? Yep! When it's Ruben's! Staff is very attentive and prices are reasonable. Great spot for breakfast, lunch... More

Stopped here for a late lunch after a day at the beach. So glad we did! We shared some guacamole to start. My husband ordered the chicken chimichanga and I ordered the fish tacos. Both were absolutely delicious! The hot sauces were homemade and out of this world! Very reasonable prices and friendly service.

We ate there for lunch with two children and we were greatly surprised. It's just off the beaten track, so ask around to find it, but it's opposite the main post office in Playa... More

We visited Ruben's Restaurant 3 times over our week stay on the Isla. Ruben and his staff are some the most friendly and attentive staff on the Island. We had breakfast, dinner and lunch to go. Ruben makes the best coconut and pineapple margaritas I've ever had. Our kids loved it there too. Everything we ate was delicious, authentic and... More

We had breakfast at Ruben's several times during our one week stay. Lobster Benedict is delightful, veggie omelette also very good. Service is excellent, if not overly attentive. Delicious, hot coffee. Will be back again soon.

This place has amazing food. Ruben comes around the tables and talks to all the patrons. It is definitely a good and unexpensive meal.
