“Worth Finding!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Did a day trip on golf carts. Went by this place @ 10:30 am. I had found out they did not open until 2:00 durning high season. Just evenings low season. We went back @ 2:00 so We could try their Pineapple Cilantro Marg's. SO WORTH IT!!!! Best one I had in Mexico. Freshly made. No mix.

“Monchis, Monchis, Monchis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Excellent food although a bit slow, BUT, you are in Mexico. We actually ate there 3 times in 10 days mainly because we could walk there.. All meals were great and for one of our visits we brought our own fresh caught fish. We showed up with 14 people! No Problem! Ramone, the owner set up our tables together and brought out the chips and salsa while Ziggy prepared our meal. We all raved about Ziggy's 3 different fish dishes he prepared for us. We highly recomend this stop while on Isla Mujeres.

A little out of the way but worth the trip. Excellent food and selection. The price was reasonable and the service was just great!

“Great steak tacos.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The drinks were plentiful and good. The tacos were wonderful. Little place you would probably drive right by without a second glance. Staff was accommodating as there were seven of us. Very enjoyable evening.

“Monchis Tacos are BOMB!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Small hole in the wall off the beaten path of most restaurants. Very friendly staff and great service. The Monchis Tacos are by far the best thing on the menu, beware the habanero garlic sauce, it is very flavorful and delicious, but you can easily overdo it. A little goes a long ways! Good coconut shrimp and surf & turf shish kabob. Margaritas are strong and tasty! We ate here several nights and were not disappointed one time. They even brough our group of 6 people some drinks on the house, which was a very nice gesture. HIghly recomended and can't wait to visit this place again!!
