Don't bother for breakfast. Ordered a mojito and was served wine with orange tang. Ordered a basic breakfast of eggs, bacon and hash browns and received the order with no bacon. Never did get the bacon. The waitress was very nice but the establishment didn't...More

We stopped in here bc out was convenient. I just dropped off my daughter at the ferry, had my two nephews and didn't feel like finding a place to grab a quick lunch. What a mistake. The place was empty and I'm wondering if it...More

I typically give establishments the benefit of doubt on Trip Advisor. However, we had a very disappointing experience here today. This place was recommended by a friend due to its view and economical breakfast. The view is fantastic, looking at Isla Mujeres' Playa Norte. However...More

Right on the strip. Can seat outside and people watch plus watch boats and beachgoers. Had the guacamole and husband had the beef nachos. Both were very good. Ice tea was cold and good.

Went to this restaurant 3 years ago & had their ceviche. Made sure we found it again on this visit. It also has a nice view of the beach.

We had taken a snorkeling trip to the Island, and weren't scheduled to eat for two more hours. We came upon this quaint and shady outdoor restaurant, and were very happy with the quick service and great food. It was more then reasonably priced.

This was our third and probably last visit to Pinguino. The view is nice and the location is good, but... The Margaritas were rather small, expensive (100 pesos) and felt watered down. You get Margaritas twice as large and great tasting at Mininos across the...More

We needed somewhere to eat after coming off the ferry, before our accommodations were ready. I'm glad we chose Pinguino! We had all our luggage and they had no issue. Our server even moved a fan closer to our table to help us cool down...More
