If you want pizza this is the place on the island. The owner Adriano is from Naples and makes wonderfully tasting pizza's. We had a Margarita and a Lobster Pizza which were both outstanding. If you dine outside you are actually sitting at tables in the street. Watch the tourist and locals walk or drive by. Good selection of beer and wines also.

Yes, finally a great lobster pizza. The real Italian flavor of garlic and parsley and tails well cocked, soft and juicy. The dough is crusty and the cheese is real mozzarella that goes perfect with Mediterranean taste. I highly recommend this pizza as a very good one in the all Yucatan peninsula.

THere are a number of Pizza offerings on Holbox these days. Some on living on Past reputation & laurels, others, trying to CASH IN on the $$$.

NONE of the others COME CLOSE to this Family run Pizzaria run by a wonderful Italian Family.

REAL THIN CRUST....REAL MOZZARELLA, not the cheap Mexican Manchego used by others. Luscious ingredients Tasty SAuce, Great Toppings including LOBSTER.....Far better than the eatery on the park Edelin.....

Pastas a light & tasty........Small & intimate Watch the World go by & Savor every bite! DONT MISS THIS if you're on Holbox!

Lobster on pizza didn't sound all that great to me - until we had the Lobster Pizza at Cariocas. First of all the pizza had a crust that was thin and crispy, just the right amount of really tasty tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. Nothing to overpower the lobster. Ah, the lobster! Juicy, tender, flavorful. Not at all stringy or dry. In my opinion, the best on the island. There are a lot of places to get this dish on Holbox but if you start here, it will spoil you for the rest.

But that's not all. No matter how good the food, if the service isn't up to par, your dining experience can be ruined. Adrian and Natalia make your dining experience four star. This couple does everything right. It's like dining with family. We stopped the first time just for a glass of wine on our way back to our hotel. Sitting at a table on the roadside watching people drift by at night, we were never rushed or made to feel as if we should have ordered food. That made us want to return to experience the food and we did - two more times. The night we left Holbox, we stopped for a last glass of wine, shook hands and hugged the owners because that's the kind of people they are. When you get excellent food served by nice people, you get the best of both worlds. Don't leave Holbox without visiting Cariocas.

We spent 2 months in Holbox this past winter and I can say for certain that Cariocas has excellent food at very reasonable prices. Also, they serve wonderful wines! My husband claims that they have the best steak on the island and my personal favorite is the gnocchi Gorgonzola. Whatever your choice , you won't be disappointed . We also have another reason to love this restaurant . We left a satchel there one evening with out iPad,phones, passports and cash inside. After returning to our hotel and realizing what had happened an hour or more had passed. We were very concerned because we sat at a table outside. Thank God the owners found it hanging on the back of a chair and held it for us. What a relief! It's unfortunate but true - had we been elsewhere, we would not have been so fortunate . Trust me, the food is outstanding and the owners are too!
