“Great meals at Monchi's!”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

I just spent a week on Isla Mujeres and enjoyed our first meal at Monchi's so much that all five of us chose to eat there a second time during the week. LOVED the coconut shrimp and all that came with it. Very creative menu and lovely presentation, plus great service. It doesn't look like much from the street but every meal our group had was delicious. Also for appetizers - we ate guacamole all over the island but Monchi's was the best. Highly recommended!

“Great service and good food”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

The restaurant was crowded when we arrived but the owner sat us down on a couple of chairs and brought us free drinks while we waited. The menu was varied, reasonably priced and tasty. When my wife left her sweater behind, the next day they tracked her down to our hotel to return it - how kind is that?!

“Bacon wrapped shrimp! YUM YUM”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Visiting the island for 17 days and went back several times because the food was so good. The appearance will through you off but that's pretty typical for the island. the owner and the staff would always come out to chat and the drinks were fantastic and huge!!

“Love the fish!”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

We like Monchi's a lot. It's tiny and doesn't look 'fancy' - but that's the same for most all of the Mexican (not touristy) places on the island. Service is great, fish is wonderful. Had the fillet a la veracruzana - delicious. Earlier in the week a friend and I split an order of the stuffed fish - fabulous (rich!). Prices are good, too! Enjoy!

“Not fancy but very good”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Ramon and his staff prepare some pretty delicious food in a small facility. I know he is careful in selecting ingredients and is very particular about how things are prepared. The results are terrific. Really good food (and nice folks).
