“Stunning sea view - must visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

We rented out a golf buggy to explore the island and the golf buggy driving was so much fun!
Isla Mujeres is a very small island and it will not take much time to go around it.
Acantilado is a nice restaurant with the stunning sea view. There were a few outdoor tables with the umbrellas available and we were lucky to get one!
The service was slow and the food was ok. However, we were not impressed with the lobster tail at all. Definitely worth to stop by to have a drink and enjoy the scenery!

“Lunch in Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014 via mobile

If you are looking for a beautiful place to dine on Isla Mujeres you have to try Acantilado. The food and drinks were excellent. We had the lobster special. The lobster was delicious and the vegetables were very fresh. The view from the restaurant is truly amazing!!

“Always worth a stop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

Let me preface by saying I have not eaten here. But we have visited 2 years in a row for views one can never forget. It's a special treat to grab a table, grab some cervezas, and soak in the view. This is the most captivating spot on Isla, and it really puts into perspective how small the island is, and just how blue the waters really are.

Go. Just do it. Grab a beer, and take it all in. You won't regret it.

“The view is worth the trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

Rented a golf cart and drove the entire length of the island. Stopped here for a snack and drinks. Scenery is worth the trip. Cerviche was excellent and the guacamole was fresh. Killer daiquiris and margaritas.
