Excellent modern Mexican food. Very nice place. We got offered the desert (without asking anything) because there was a 20 people table next to us and they thought that the service was not perfect even if We were pretty happy about the waiter.
White fish ceviche and tuna steak were excellent! One of the best place I've eaten in Mexico so far.

After a few days on the island we decided to give Rosa Mexicano a try. Being Holbox Island #1 on TripAdvisor we expected big things. We weren't disappointed. We started with the chorizo and melted cheese starter (Queso Condido...?) and then we both opted for steaks for our mains. The New York Strip was tasty and cooked perfectly. The flank steak was also cooked perfectly and very, very flavoursome. Each was served with simple accompaniments/sides with bold Mexican flavours. For dessert we opted for what I would describe as a Banana Split with a Mexican twist. Also very good.

Rosa Mexicano is a small restaurant run by passionate, young staff who serve good quality, contemporary Mexican cuisine with fresh local produce and although it is at the pricier end of the scale it is well worth the money. Due to the size of the restaurant booking would be advised.

This is definitely the best meal we have had during our entire visit in Isla Holbox. These guys serve fresh fish and well prepared meat, tastes like heaven. Our waiter, Jerry, gets 5 stars for excellent service!

On our one week holiday on Holbox we ate here twice and had lovely food both times. The restaurant doesn't perhaps look very welcoming or cozy, but Gerry is a wonderful person and had plenty of suggestions (worth listening to) about foods and served us interesting and lovely Mexican wines too. And, the food is delicious!

We had three kids under 5 years old with us, and the chef made sure they got what they longed for, and also took into consideration our sons milk protein allergy. He enjoyed his shrimps and steak!

Greetings to Rosa Mexicana and thanx for the experience!

Jerry and the chef started their own business on Holbox recently and was an immediate hit. The food is elegant, innovative, modern, tasty and an excellent fusion of awsome mexican food. Jerry is so friendly and welcoming. They present the food with great knowledge and passion. I went there twice and need to go back to Holbox to try more exciting alternatives from the menu. This restaurant is a must! Just go there at least once, and try it for yourself. You will not get disappointed.
