Very very good food. Our host was probably the best on the island, knowledgeable about his menu and was so entertaining. Open kitchen just a few feet a way is a treat to watch

Stopping for coffee is one of our must do's every day while on vacation. We went to Aluxes one day as a change from our usual coffee shop.

Our breakfast takeout (wanted to enjoy it on the beach!) was so great our first morning in Isla that we had to come back the next day.

We were on Isla Mujeres for 1 day last week and stopped by Aluxes and were not disappointed. The food was fresh and delicious and the staff friendly and welcoming. Their coconut shrimp is the best I have ever had. Hope to return again some time.
