“Always outstanding food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

We have eaten in La Parilla Juan many times over several visits to Holbox. Lovely rooftop dining, excellent service, and most important, really good food. I especially like the seafood skewers. Service is very good. This restaurant has been around for a long time and is consistently good.

“Great view, great Argentine flavor.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

We went to La Parilla Juan after reading about its great sunset location. Lovely mojitos, amazing sea bass carpaccio up on the roof near the zocalo. Also, Alejandro, our server, was a rock star. A Holbox treasure.

“Pretty good but quite a climb!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

Ate at this restaurant when visiting Holbox. There were so many stairs to get up there, it's on the third floor of the building. But once we got there the view was beautiful. You could see the ocean and town. I got the honey shrimp and it was really good. Try the Amaretto Colada, I had never had this drink before but is now one of my favorites...

“Quite a climb, but worth the effort.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Juan has put a lot of effort and carino into his restaurant. We have eaten here over the last 8 years and it has always been a very enjoyable experience. Some times as one of the reviews mentioned, the music is not the best, but all you have to do is ask the waiter to change it, and they will be glad to do so. Believe it or not, some great pasta if your a pasta fan, but being from Argentina, meat is the specialty of the house. The salads are great as well as the fish. So you have a chance to meet the taste of all in the group. The view is very special and the drinks and wine are very good. A night that you will enjoy, also, there is never a rush, so go, have a before dinner drink, talk, order, enjoy the meal and a long "sobre mesa" after the meal.

“One of our best meals on Holbox.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

We really enjoyed our meal at La Parilla de Juan. You have to look for it a bit - it's on the third floor of a building (seating is both inside and outside on the rooftop patio) about one block east of the square one the street headed toward the hotel zone. We had lobster risotto and one of the specials of the evening, a seafood lasagna with curry which was exceptional. Prices were right for the atmosphere and menu - a little more upscale menu than most we saw. Climb the stairs and enjoy.
