“Fantastic Eats”
Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

While the pizza is delicious (try the octopus/pulpo), their tacos are not to be missed,

Try a shot of their Xtabentún liquor for dessert!

“The best Margaritas on the island”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Over a couple of years, we have used this place regularly. The service is quick, the pizzas are tremendous and the Margaritas to die for. Of particular note are the lobster pizzas, which may sound bizarre but, believe me, are absolutely delicious. It's a great place to just enjoy well prepared, value for money food, enoy a salty margarita on the rocks (with a bit if a kick) and just watch the village passing by!

“Poor Service, Okay Pizza”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Lobster pizza seems to be the island's signature dish and everybody told us to eat it here. It was okay. The crust was more like a cookie dough than a pizza crust (maybe it was undercooked?). I can say they were very generous with the lobster, it was piled on the pizza. However, we don't think pizza is the best venue for lobster...the lobster was terribly dry. I think a shrimp pizza comes out much tastier. As for our waiter, he wanted to be anywhere else other than waiting on our table. Ok, you don't have to be friendly or even smile, but don't stand in the corner smoking a cigarette while staring at my empty wine glass.

“How many lobsters can you fit on a pizza?!”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Well, there's the lobster pizza of course! Amazing, and until you've tried it you'll never just how good it is! I've been going to Holbox for a few years now, and always fit in a visit to Edelin. and you know what, the standard has never dropped, in fact if anything the pizzas have got better! And you know that they say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, well, there are lots of other places that have now added lobster pizzas to their menu, but they just don't do it like Edelin. But there are other things on the menu, such as the anchovies and alcaparra pizza, which comes pretty close to the lobster in my hit parade. And then they have the best, most powerful margaritas on the island, knock out drops. A great place, and at very reasonable prices! Don't miss it!

“Okay”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Just okay pizza. It was crowded all the time but we still got in quickly. We were expecting it to be amazing but like most places on the island, the food was just average
