Great place to split a couple plates between each other. Good service and price for the amount of food you get.

We've always honored Rubens due to their fabulous food and friendly wait staff. They not only make the best food in Isla Mujeres they also welcome you as family! It's a mandatory must-go restaurant while on island.

We lived our breakfast at rubens! Fresh juice, yummy egg dishes, great service. If I had one criticism as a super taster, it would’ve to use real butter and not margarine in your eggs Benedict and they will be perfect! I’ll be back thank you!

Been travelling around Mexico for a month, and Ruben’s have the BEST burrito in Mexico! As vegetarians we had the veggie burrito, but I’m sure the meat/fish burrito’s are just as good. Must try if going to Isla Mujeres
