Laid back, funky. Good service. Be advised, most places in Xcalak are on a U.S. $ economy. We didn't have $$, they couldn't take our credit card due to the manager being gone, and they give you an exchange rate for pesos that is less than daily rate. Have some $$ if possible or just relax into the slight pesos... More

Toby's is a fun relaxing place to eat! Because of Xcalak being so small the main options for dinning are at your hotel or venturing to another hotels restaurant.

Opening times for Toby's is unmarked, we arrived at 11:30am and asked if they were open and was told yes. At noon they... More

I love this place. Toby is fantastic. The food is good. Toby will go out of your way for anything. He even went and purchased me wine! During football season he's closed on Sunday, but opens up for us Gringos and we can watch the games in English. I absolutely recommend to everyone! Such a great place. And don't forget... More

We have been here in November. Season just started and we were the only guest one night. And the owner invited us to the opening a few days later. Nice service, good food. It is nothing luxurious but offers all you need and a cold beer.
