Great breakfast. Hot cakes are awesome not sure what the bad reviews were expecting but this is a very low key island. No posh resorts here. No 5 star restaurants. Service is good and food is good.

What can you say about Holbox, but ahhhhh! We had dinner here one night, and liked it so much we returned for breakfast. Good food, friendly staff, and lovely decor. And don't forget the Margaritas! The fish was fresh,portions were big, everything was perfectly prepared.

Down to earth people, we had few good cocktails at this place. The guacamole is delicious, great snack. Overall, more for a quick coffee or nice cocktails.

Great food verity, amazing flavors, high quality products, definitely coming back here. We had pastats and smoothies, not the pasta you eat in an Itallian restaurant but excellent flavors and fresh ingredients. Also the atmosphere is very calm, local and friendly.

Just happened upon this place while strolling the streets early one morning. Although they were out of some choices, the food we ordered was terrific. The best part was the fresh fruit drinks and the Mexican coffee. Our family of 5 was happy and we returned for another breakfast. Place is laid back, perfect for Holbox. Management is extremely attentive.

The grilled fish was quite disappointing and there are better places for a good fish restaurant in Holbox. The recommended rib-ey steak was average but in general, you will get a better food experience elsewhere. May be it's good for breakfast and lunch as other reviewers recommend but we would not recommend it for dinner. It does look nice from... More

The food is nothing special and expensive! On the bill they already including 15% tip that in mexico is illegal and also if u willing to pay with foreign credit card they want to charge a 5% extra on everything! Do not go there! There are better places, honest and way cheaper! Rude employees.

Both meals at this restaurant were very good with ample amounts and great flavour. They also serve very large margueritas at reasonable prices We would definitely recommend this restaurant but they are a bit slow and who cares as most of us are on vacation

This place had a great vibe and good food! We both had liquados and lunch as well. The owner/manager was there and he was super friendly. We loved the decor and it really added to the overall experience.

Breakfast was very good. I ordered it a whit omelet with vegetables and cheese, coffee and my wife ordered chilaquiles. Very good service and very good food. Ceviche is good as well since we try it in the afternoon.

Thank ReneCatalan
