Just sit back and have a good time! What a lovely place to eat and relax. We went here twice and both times had great fish and coldest beer in Holbox.

We spent a week in at Mawimbi in Holbox and ate here most of the time. The food is spectacular and fresh. I really enjoyed our seafood platter, grilled octopus, shrimp and fish. All spectacular. Plus the breakfast was outstanding. The service is the best. Very helpful staff who speak multiple languages including Spanish, Mayan, English and Italian.

The complimentary breakfast is absolutely delicious! You get fresh squeezed juice (different every day), coffee, large bowl of fresh, tasty mixed fruit (so so good!), and toasted bread with marmalade. Perfect for a light breakfast. There was one morning we were extra hungry and ordered scrambled eggs, which were cooked perfectly. Other than that, the comp breakfast is a perfect... More

Small menu which I enjoyed. Have whatever fresh fish is on the menu. Have the octopus! Lovely pina coladas and mango dacks.

The view on the beach is really fantastic. However the food (guacamole and ceviche) was extremely tasteless.

Celebrated my daughter's birthday there for dinner. We stayed in hotel next door. So good to go out to dinner with bare feet walking on beach. They fixed a tiramisu birthday cake. Lobster was very good. Drinks were good as was service. Unfortunately, the bugs were pretty bad. They gave you bug spray but still tough to enjoy such a... More

Ceviche was probably my least favorite on the island. Setting is beautiful and service very friendly. A great place for sunset cocktails.

The food was delicious. The atmosphere was cozy and beautiful. Situated right on the beach you can sit out on the sand among the palm trees or in a cute thatch roof covered bar. The service was fantastic. Our waiter was very friendly and even brought us a book of the history of the hotel/restaurant to look at while we... More
