We liked the place at the main square for people watching and the full evening life of Holbox. The food we had was rather average to tasteless. The Stir-Fry was greasy. It should have featured garlic and ginger but tasted of neither of it. Soy...More

It's a bit pricey but always well executed sushi, with a menu that gets wider by the year. They can also do pescado entero from the day's catch and charcoal grill a mean rib-eye.

This place has the most delicious sushi that I've ever eaten. If you want to eat really good sushi, this place is a no-brainer.

These guys make great sushi and teriyaki dishes as well as local seafood favorites. They have the best selection of Mexican microbrews. Late night in the upstairs bar, midnight to 3am, this is the spot where the whole island goes to party.
