My family had dinner one night here and we enjoyed it so much that we came back the following morning for breakfast which ended being one of our favorite meals. For breakfast we had the steak, chicken chilaquiles, pancakes, and a breakfast burrito. Delicious!

Rueben’s is a small place near downtown Isla Mujeres serving amazing, authentic Mexican food. The service was great and Maria is so kind. Highly recommend Rueben’s when you are visiting the island.

One of the best places to eat. Not only tourist go here, but also local people. We loved the Mexican food they serve. A main course is more than enough! The restaurant looks local, which we like. They have WiFi an English speaking personnel. It’s...More
