Toby's is totally unpretentious, the kind of place you might not think you should enter. But the service is very friendly and the fish really wonderful. We had fried shrimp with coconut and I wanted a second order, but we also had ordered a grilled whole fish that was delicious. I would go back here again and again if I... More

A porch over a sleepy dirt street with dogs, kids, and motorcycles. A great place for beer and e-mail but not very good food.

My friend and I traveled from Tulum to Xcalak we arrived late at night about 9:00 pm. We were in Xcalak to fly fish and for a day snorkeling trip to Bancho Chinchorro. Although Toby's was closing, he and his brother Eric accommodated us, and remained open. That night we had very fresh fish taco platters with beans and rice.... More

great lion fish ceviche. great place to grab a beer and food and hang out after diving. Orlando's art on the walls is worth stopping for.

The lunch menu features a fish sandwich that is yummy but don't be afraid to ask for it even if you go for dinner.

Toby is a great owner and has just revamped the place. I visit at least once a week and find it hard to go past certain dishes on the menu. Lionfish is practically always available - ask for it. Either as a ceviche or a curry. Also the burgers and criminal they are so good, served with a huge helping... More

Toby's is, and there is no doubt, the place to go get some excellent, fresh and surprisingly inventive, good seafood at just about anytime during the day or evening. We just spent a week in Xcalak and five or six times we had a meal at Toby's at any given time of the day. Toby and Eric, his brother, are... More
