Amazing food & great service at this upstairs hideaway! Recommended to us from other traveller's & it was absolutely delicious. We had a table across from the kitchen so we were able to watch the chef in action. Highly, highly recommend!!

Hands down the best meal we have had in Central America in 6 weeks! We had the Argentinian platter to share and the cerviche octopus as a starter. Absolutely amazing and greeted by the chef! Great michaladas too! You must come here, we'll be back :)

Good diner and the welcome was like an old friends welcome. Food was fresh and quality home cooked. We had fish and meat and they were both top ranked quality. Try it if you go to Holbox!
