We came here based on recommendations and we really liked it. There was a bit of a line, but we grabbed some drinks from the bar while we waited. Once we were sat, we ordered a few different things to try off the menu. Their...ceviche was really good, as were their fish tacos. Definitely a good place to try.More

The recipes are not innovative, theyre almost traditional but in the best way possible, we enjoyed a great meal here. Coupled with the warmth of the staff and their service, recommendations, and the ambience... all made for a fantastic (fresh) seafood meal.

I went here with my boyfriend and we had the fish and shrimp tacos! The shrimp tacos were exceptional and prices were good. Fish tacos were okay but not super flavorful. The waiter got what we needed but wasn't super friendly.

This was our second visit to Holbox. We ate at Las Panchas on our previous visit and ate there twice during this visit. The fish tacos are excellent and their ceviche is simply outstanding. Everything is very fresh. Portions are large and prices are reasonable.

Nothing spectacular about the decor or location but the food was great. Super fresh and tasty. We had the fish ceviche and chicken tacos. Loads of food for your money.

Really liked this place, I had the shrimp dish with coconut and it was so delicious and tasty. Loved the tamarind sauce. The portion was really big and the price was 240 pesos if I am not wrong. My friends were also satisfied with their...dishes. We had a good time, central location. A big recommendation for sea fod.More

tough to get in here as their hours seem to fluctuate but go for lunch around 1 and enjoy very good grilled fish for about $10. Fair price, not cheap, but good portions. Staff is perfunctory, do a good job, but see too many tourists...so they just go through the motions. We are going back tonight to try something different and know it will be good.More

We've been to Holbox 3X and have made sure to eat here at least one time each visit. We like to mix it up, but their food is so good and the fish is so fresh, that we can't pass this restaurant up. This last...visit, we ate twice here for lunch. We had the fish tacos and fresh catch filet and every meal was excellent and flavorful. Highly recommend stopping here. It gets busy, but is worth the wait.More

Huge portions - I had a medium camarón ceviche and it was large by my standards. Very fresh and tasty. The fish tacos were okay, wouldn’t order those again. No card accepted

We ate here 3 times on this trip. It is very close to our hotel. They had live music almost everyday it seemed around 2:00. Everything has a very authentic taste and the beer is the coldest we had. Nothing fancy, but great for lunch...or after snack.More

This restaurant was recommended by reviews. When we arrived, there was a lot line. Also, some locals were cutting in front of n people that had their names on waiting list. After we waited for 30 minutes, we were told they were out of pulpo/octopus....We had already waited, so we decided to stay. I had shrimp and husband had soup. The meal was so-so. I think there are so many other choices in Isla where you shouldn't have to wait 30 minutes for. Not coming back.More
