Love this little restaurant right by Ixchel hotel. The staff was very friendly and the food really good. They brought out the fresh catch of the day, snapper, for our inspection and prepared it very well. I stuck with enchiladas suizas and was not disappointed. The margaritas were also amazing. This is a stop we will certainly make next time we are on Isla.

We ate lunch today at this wonderful place. It looks small but at night they put tables on the street and were having a group of 14 that night! Lobster tails are 1 peso per gram or about 10 bucks each. That's the best price I've seen on the island by 40%. The TripAdvisor map is wrong. Walk to the north end of Hildago and turn right. Take your first left and you'll see it about a block and a half on your right. You must try it!!!

Getting to Abuelos was like a treasure hunt. When we finally found it, we were not disappointed. Friendly staff that make you feel more like your at someone's home (in fact I think it is their home). The food was fresh and tasty, and the most affordable on Isla (whole fresh fish for under $10 USD). Seafood and classic Mexican dishes, everyone better than the next. I'm sure this restaurant will soon be on the top 5 for Isla here on Tripadvisor, we are here for another week and already have our next few meals at Abuelos planed.

My family and I ate at Abuelos 2 of our 7 nights on the Island and they were our 2 best meals. We had guacamole for an appetizer, it was great. We both ate the fish filet stuffed with seafood and upgraded to lobster as part of the seafood. It was stuffed into a black grouper filet with cream sauce. The second night I had the coconut mango shrimp, which was my favorite. There were 6 in our group and everyone loved their meal.

When we're visiting Isla Mujeres, we always make it a point to try to find great, new restaurants while still fitting in some of our favorites. Our last visit, we chose to try Abuelos because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor. Needless to say, this will become one of our new favorites and we'll be returning on our next trip. The nicest people own the place and it's so apparent they just want to please their guests. We had coconut shrimp with mango sauce and fresh grouper stuffed with lobster and covered with a delicious creamy sauce. The food was delicious, especially the stuffed grouper, which incidentally she said wasn't on the menu. My favorite was the margarita! Fresh lime juice and whatever love she put into it, it was delicious. We had to come back the next night just for another one! This place is a little gem.
