The decoration is a trap! The restaurant looks trendy but the food is awful (fried, poor taste), service is cheap (but you are charged for 15% at the end...no choice!) and prices are higher as compared to other restaurants in holbox. Finally : go somewhere...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Basico - the pasta was delicious and fresh, the service was excellent, and we enjoyed sitting in the booth with a street view to people watch and listen to the live music.

Lovely setting in Holbox. Service was typically excellent in the three times we ate there. The manager seemed out of sorts and unsure of how to help when it was busy one night. The beet salad was a hit three nights there. The guacamole was...More

Interesting high end cocktail list - delicious drinks. Food menu seems very pricey given overall nature of the island so we opted to skip dinner. Nice place to grab a few drinks to start the evening.

Had a meal which was nice, cocktails were good, but unfortunately the experience was soured by the price we were charged for water. I hadn’t noticed until after I paid the bill, but we were charged 125 pesos for a bottle of water. That’s £5,...More

A very upscale place that someone too great care to design, but better yet the food was truly excellent. Try the sea bass and don’t miss the mushroom pasta—it is far superior to anything at Casa Nostra.

A group of us (3 couples and a 4-year-old) chose Basico for dinner. We were taken to a table at the very back, where 4 of us had a fine view of the wall. There are amber floor lights, the brightest lights in that part...More

Located at the main street just one block away from the sea, this place is a must stop. It will delight all your senses. Our cuisine proposal in mexican contemporary fused with oriental ingredients to accomplish a unique and original blend. Our cocktail's mixology was designed specifically for each drink mixing spiced and fruits. We blend our own syrups to achieve a unique taste. We have 15 cocktails listed on our menu, sometimes our mixologist will whip up something new in the spur of the moment and we will only have it available at that time. Our music is based on a tropical mood. We designed a playlist for each moment of the day according to the position of the sun. At night we sometimes have disco house DJ's. We have a great bar and very comfortable arm chairs and tables for bigger parties or for those seeking a complete restaurant ambiance.
