“Delicious once again!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

Went here last year and loved it so repeated. It was just as good or better! We had the lobster tails. Started with guacamole which was fabulous! Service was impeccable and the meal was outstanding! Reasonably priced as well.

“Authentic Mexican food in a great setting”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

I loved the food and ambiance here. Had really fresh shrimp. My only word of advice would be to bring insect repellent, as it detracted from my meal. But, I wish I had gone a second time. It was that good.

“Lively fun place to enjoy lunch or dinner”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend and I were extremely pleased with our dinner at Viva Zapata. It is an open air fun restaurant with a great bar and a very relaxing atmosphere in which to eat. As in any restaurant you want to enjoy great food but for us more important is the staff. The waiters here were young, outgoing and fun. They went out of there way to make sure your dinning experience was a success. So three cheers for the waiters. That night we really enjoyed the awesome Gucamole with home made chips ( not skimpy on the portion ) to start and then we shared the marinated flank steak tacos that were out of this world. The tacos were fresh and home made and really complmented the tasty filling, probably one of the best tacos we have ever ate. The menus has a large selection of Mexican food to choose from and was very reasonably priced for great quality food. This is a must stop on your list of dining experiences in Isla Holbox

“Back again and excellent as always”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

Once again back to that quaint sand bar island in the Mexican Caribbean, and first night stop for a DELICIOUS fresh ( they were swimming in the ocean that morning) corbina fish fillet in garlic grilled on the fire to perfection... Viva Zapata's is always good. Chendo and Noa and staff have a great product and the new additions to the restaurant ( long wood bar, sitting area and now for World Cup a big screen TV and a 'snack' menu) are nice plus... You will enjoy it here.
