We went here to get my husband's beloved Mexican shrimp cocktail. It did not disappoint. No better place than Isla with all the access to fresh crustaceans. The cocktail is loaded with them. On a whim we decided to try the flan for dessert. Oh. My. Word. It will ruin you on eating flan anywhere else. It's not just the... More

We ate at Mocambo 3 times in a week. The best was the whole fish (snapper) deep fried and it was fantastic really fantastic. The ceviche was good too. When we sat down we got our drinks from a smiling waiter. While we were waiting some fishermen brought in a box of fish - fresh out of the ocean! We... More

Outdoor seating at tables on the sand, nice view of fishing boat dock and ocean. Food was okay, limited option for vegetarian. A Mexican tourist couple nearby had screaming children whom they encouraged to run around and scream. We asked them to control the kids and instead they smirked and whispered to the kids who escalated the disruptive behavior. We... More

Don't use your credit card in this place, someone tried to make charges to my card after I ate in this restaurant. I was lucky that my bank denied the charges.

A taxi driver recommended this place. We wanted something different from American inspired. Amazing ceviche and seafood platter right on the beach. Don't let the lack of reviews fool you. Great lunch spot!!!

Typical Mexican seafood. The caracol ceviche was good, the totopos were crispy and the salsa and pico de gallo were well made. Beers were cold and very refreshing on a hot afternoon. The views were awesome with the dock in front of us with the lancheros tied to it. Pleasant and relaxing Caribbean-like atmosphere.

At this restaurant, you can eat at a table on the sand, a few feet from the water. My husband and I had dinner by the light of a crescent moon on a warm January night. I asked about the catch of the day and the waiter left for a moment, only to return with a platter on which were... More

Located right on the sand near the port - but not too near, we had a big snapper between two and octopus, the food was great and surprisingly the wine choices were great too! Staff were really helpful and the cost was surprisingly low.

We had several shrimp dishes, including the stuffed shrimp which were delicious! Enjoy a delicious, reasonably priced meal right by the water! The service was very good, and the restrooms were clean. We also appreciated that there was not loud music blasting throughout dinner, which we found to be quite common in the Isla restaurants.
