We have been coming to Isla Mujeres for 11 years and this was the best meal we have had! We have heard that this place is worth going to but just hadn't made it here until now. So worth the trip!! The flank steak, ribeye and filet mignon were absolutely incredible! Melted in your mouth! And the service was amazing!

Bastos grill is located in the middle of Isla. It is a small restaurant with delicious and authentic Mexican food. We ordered the Enchiladas and the Chili Rellenos and both were excellent. Prices were good. Don't miss this gem of a restaurant!

We come to Bastos frequently because the food is so fresh and so delicious. Tonight we had arrachera steak so tender and flavorful. The margaritas as potent and the service is friendly. It is an authentic, family owned restaurant on Isla and you should not leave Isla without having a meal here.

Thanks to all my fellow reviewers. I found this place on TA. We decided to eat here one night and glad we did. In short, the place is small but very busy the night we went. Located away from the "tourist", this littel place sits on a street where the locals reside. That was the neatest thing for me. Service... More

When we arrived, they were full. The owner set up a table on the side of the street for us. They took great care of us and the food was very good.

This was our first visit to Bastos Grill, but I'm sure we'll be going back as soon as we are able to get back to the island. Very authentic, delicious food served up at a very reasonable price. Great service!
