We got this from a list of best restaurants and were somewhat disappointed. The food was okay but not great, they didn't understand the salad concept. Upstairs location not far from the main plaza was okay. But service and food just average.

Nice food, excellent service, both efficient and attentive. Nice location with good views. Surely is worth of a visit.

We were looking for a place to eat tonight and found this place. It has brown stairs that you have to climb up to get up to the restaurant which is a roof top one. We looked at the menu and our party of 4 decided to try some fish, chicken and spinach parcels. The boys had the fish dishes... More

You probably have the best view in town, given that it's located on the rooftop, 3rd floor. Nevertheless, the food was just about average. We ended up dining at the hotel (tortugas) the rest of the week since the town doesn't really offer much fine dining.

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 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
