“Our first lobster dinner on the Island”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We found this place and got to order our lobster for the next night. Eric the chef wanted it to be fresh. It was so good and so much food for our money!

“Best meal in Holbox”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is the "No Menu" restaurant and they offer you 4 choices, which change up daily depending on what the Chef can find fresh. I ended up ordering a HUGE flank steak with an incredible sauce over it and it came with a wonderful fruit salad and a lovely bunch of tiny potatoes and rice. It was delicious. It's the first steak in all my years of Mexico that was fantastic, let alone edible. My husband had the fish and again, he was blown away by how delicious it was in a mushroom cream sauce and how perfectly cooked. It was easily the best meal we had in 10 days on the Island. Do not miss this restaurant. The service was top notch and the cocktails were so yummy!!
