My wife and I came here on our first night after a long day of travelling. The food was awesome and the drinks tasted great. They also take cards which is awesome.

We enjoyed fresh fish, shrimp and guacamole. Meals are generous and mid-price range. Wait staff was funny and energized. Since it was my birthday, they delivered a complimentary flan dessert (complete with a candle)

We loved this place! Stopped in for drinks on our first full day on island.

We've visited a couple of times before and always had the "surf and turf" mixed grill, its huge and fabulous! Service is slow but, that's Holbox/Mexico. For that they would get 4 stars because of the service. This time we ordered fish and ribeye. When it came nothing else came with it, no garnish, veg, fries nothing! They had to... More
