Small restaurant with excellent food and cocktails. Great presentations, great service, and delicious entrees with some very inventive taste experiences. Prices a step up from the surrounding places, but still reasonable for a high-end dining experience at a remote island vacation spot.

Just a magical, delicious dining experience. The last place we ate in Holbox and by far the best. Highly recommend. It's not even that expensive. They do take reservations and only cash.

I admit it. I was skeptical. I’m allergic to overhyped bougie nonsense. Oh, but Milpa wasn’t! Milpa so delivered! First of all, I went solo. Many restaurants (esp, hip, modern ones, I find) seem to not know how to react to a soloist. Not Milpa....More

We made reservations weeks in advance I was so excited to eat at this restaurant from the reviews, even though it looked a little more 'fancy' than the rest on the island. We got to the restaurant about twenty minutes early and ordered a round...More

Milpa has a different feel than the other restaurants on Holbox. You can tell they possess a greater ‘technical skill’ than other restaurants on the island. Run by the owners of Casa Las Tortugas you know they are going to serve you well. The owner...More

Milpa is very laid back, no real dress code. But their service and food will certainly deserve a nice outfit.
