We stopped here for lunch and we were glad we did. Lil gem of a spot with great food and great views. Service was ok. Ceviche was awesome and tacos were great. Beers were cold and mojitos were made correct. Just get there and hang out.

Just had a light lunch here. Seafood tacos. Very good, as is most seafood we ate on Isla Holbox. Good service and reasonable price. Pleasant seating on beachfront.

I highly suggest trying the Arrachera- SO GOOD. Also, for the price, the giant bowl of guacamole is a great option. The staff here is incredible. Very helpful and customer oriented.

We had a drink here and found the place very rustic and relaxed. Nice place to spend the afternoon on the beach relaxing. We were walking and stopped in for a beer and stayed for the rest of the afternoon. Nice staff and good prices. Enjoy

Really beautiful beach setting. We were there for breakfast and enjoyed our meal. Only went once because it was a little out of the way for us but we enjoyed it. Can't say enough about the view.

Just sit back and have a good time! What a lovely place to eat and relax. We went here twice and both times had great fish and coldest beer in Holbox.

We spent a week in at Mawimbi in Holbox and ate here most of the time. The food is spectacular and fresh. I really enjoyed our seafood platter, grilled octopus, shrimp and fish. All spectacular. Plus the breakfast was outstanding. The service is the best. Very helpful staff who speak multiple languages including Spanish, Mayan, English and Italian.
