This is an unassuming little place on the beach, but don't be fooled. Leo is a magician with fish, which on Holbox is fresh every day. We usually just go with whatever Leo recommends. His grilled fish is always delicious. Great food, very reasonable prices....More

If you want the freshest fish, prepared by one of the best chefs on the island, you cannot do better than chef Leo's changarrito. Chef Leo's sauces and spices are always a complement to the fish. Great sides and a casual dinner experience right on...More

My husband really wanted to go to this place, but all that is here is remnants of the grill, the little shack, nothing else

The fish is freshly caught and brought in the morning. Simply the best grilled fish I ate. He asks how you would like the fish, or if you would like ceviche (also extremely good). Leo is amazing with his costumers, After coming there now a...More

Leo made us an incredible boquinete, grilled with a little bit of garlic - it was one of the best fish we've ever tasted. It came with tortillas, salad, rice, homemade crisps, chips + dip, all for just 220 pesos (£9). More than enough for...More
