The pollo caprese and fish filet with mango was delicious. Excellent service and wonderful view of the city from the second floor

The service was good during the first visit but hopeless the second time round. Restaurant space and balcony are open and pleasant to sit once the sun goes down. Fans could make a difference when still hot. Starter fish was not fresh!

We chose this place because the owner came to the beach in front of our hotel and informed us in a very friendly way about the menu/happy hour and the fantastic sunset view. The view from the restaurant (2nd floor) is great indeed, although located in the center and not at the beach. The drinks were fantastic, especially the margaritas!... More

We were told this restaurant was great by our hotel for something more casual, and the view is amazing and spectacular and the service that we received was very attentive and professional, and our waitress explained everything well and answered all of our questions. But the food was so-so or maybe even less, I didnt finish my pizza because it... More

We chose this place as other restaurants we'd hoped to go to were full (on a Thursday night) but from ground level this looked welcoming and was on the open air roof top which looked fun. We went up the two flights of stairs and the restaurant was empty except for a family of Mexicans just finishing their meal. We... More

The restaurant was incredibly quiet when we were here- only 2 other tables taken. The food was good but the meal was incredibly expensive. It was the most expensive meal that we ate on Holbox by far... nearly twice the price of Zapata etc... Couldn't understand why and it left a bit of a bad taste really. Reduce your prices... More

After our excellent first meal at La Parilla de Juan we went back two more times over the course of our seven nights in Hotbox. Friendly service, delicious seafood and excellent pizza (try the lobster pizza!). We also enjoyed more elegant places like Torgugas and Chapelin -- but we think Parilla de Juan should be in the top 10!

The food was cooked mostly in the microwave and tasted really bad. They have to change both chef and kitchen before I return. Don't let the nice view and the fancy menu fool you.
