This place is really delicious, and prices very moderate for an eatery frequented mostly by tourists. The sopa de lima (lime flavored soup with chicken and vegetables) is exceptional: Really well seasoned, lots of vegetables (rare here) and very good cuts of chicken. All dishes are good but that soup and pescado a la diablo (spicy fish) are my favorites. The owner Ruben is also a really nice guy, and each year hosts a drive to give toys to local children - the last one I saw had toys piled from floor to ceiling, all for donation. I loved the food and felt good about eating there.

We had walked by Ruben's on a few occasions and noticed how popular it was. Eventually we decided it was time to give a try and we did! We went in the mid-afternoon when it wasn't too busy. I had the filete empanizado which I have always enjoyed on my visits to restaurants around Mexico. Today was no different! I wish that we had been staying longer on Isla Mujeres so that we could try more of the menu. The next time!!!

Rubens offers a wide menu, and the staff is very friendly. A good place for Mexican food, but also for a nice breakfast, if that’s your call. You can sit inside, or enjoy your food in a small courtyard, just next to the restaurant. If you are at the way to the beach, you can also easily enjoy a light meal, since it’s at the way. Good service.

A small and charming restaurant with great staff and good food. It's a place where you can have your breakfast, lunch and/or dinner.
