Tasty drink and snack but horrible staff!! Servers couldn't be bothered with us I guess they forgot we are paying to be there. When trying to engage with him conversationally he told me he doesn't speak english, fair enough I'm in Mexico so I used...google translate. After leaving the money on the table his english improved to tell me the tip is not included. Haha neither was your service. Too many restaurants on the island to deal with crappy servers. GO ELSEWHERE.More

Had one lunch here - the Argentina’s empanadas were delicious!! Definitely recommend the pork. My partner had a pepperoni pizza, which was also very good. Bonus - margaritas are a little cheaper here than elsewhere! Good value for money

Had breakfast there and the dishes were incredible. The young lady assisting us had the prettiest smile and sweetest personality she was an expert at her job. Highly recommend.

Very welcoming and friendly waiter, delicious pizzas and pasta! Special mention for the pasta bolognese with a succulent sauce. The waiter offered us tequila shots with coffee, very good experience. I highly recommend it!

I dont remember the last time I had a pizza so freaking good. I would say it was one of the two or three best pizzas I've ever had in my entire life. Traditional wood oven, thin crust and great toppings. We had the Pibil...and the four cheese pizzas.More

What a wonderful place with a great staff and terrific food. The day and pasta is home made which made for great empanadas and an excellent seafood pasta. Their traditional breakfasts were amazing and we enjoyed eating there frequently. They also make great drinks and...have a terrific selection of regional beers in draft and bottle. They have upper level seating as well that looks directly over the town square. This is really nice to take a break from walking, have a few drinks, and enjoy the people moving around the square and town. All of the staff was amazing, but Georgiana was especially outstanding. She took the extra time to explain dishes, make recommendations for food and beers, and also took time to chat with us. She was one of the most favorite people that we met on our vacation.More

We had personal pizza and it was exactly as we requested with fresh ingredients. They have a delicious Limonada with natural brown sugar. If we return to Holbox island we would eat here again.

I took my chances to travel with my 3 kids on Covid times so I expected a lot of places to be closed luckily el Hornito was open, we had the most delicious breakfast on the island , the kids loved the decorations and the...food and the staff was so nice and friendly besides everything was neat and very clean! I highly recommend this place if you ever visit Holbox. The pizza was nice too with a couple of beers after a long day at the beach chasing my kids lol : )PMore

We stumbled on this place on our first night in Holbox and loved it so much we went back more than once. We ate the empanadas and the shrimp pizza - always ordered enough so we could have a slice of pizza for breakfast!

The crust on the pizza was thin and crisp which is what I like. The toppings were adequate. I had the margherita which was good but had the unusual addition of dried oregano on top (it overpowered the flavour of the pizza). My partner had...the pibil pizza which sounded really good but was actually bland. It was an inexpensive meal, but with all the other options available on Holbox, I see no reason to return.More

If you’re in the mood for a good pizza, this is definitely the place to be! Thin crust with delicious toppings, so good I ate there 2 days in a row! This restaurant deserves more then a 5 star rating!
