There are so many vegan/vegetarian diners these days and we are glad to offer so much selection. Almost 40% of our menu is vegetarian or vegan. The sushi menu has several vegetarian rolls and we can adapt many others to be vegetarian (or vegan). As you mention, our menu is varied so you can bring the carnivores along to enjoy pork ribs, filet mignon or fresh local fish. Even picky kids leave happy. We're glad that you found us and hope we'll to see you again!

All of the items we ordered were A-Maxing! Lettuce wraps, sushi rolls, everything. Loved that they also had gluten free soy sauce and menu. So many different options in one restaurant . They have great steaks also! Whatever your party may want, they have it. You won’t go wrong. Thanks for an amazing meal.

Thank you for dining with us and for taking the time to write a review. We are glad to offer so many vegan and gluten free menu options. It's also amazing how much product-sourcing has changed in this region. Four years ago, we were bringing gluten-free soy sauce and rice flour or tapioca starch from the US. Now we can get all of it here in Cancun. We'll hope to see you again!

My wife and I met Peter and Annelise by chance on our first visit to Isla at a beach bar shortly after they opened Asia Caribe. After a great conversation about their love of the island they invited us to stop by for a meal. We loved it then and their place has continued to be a frequent stop on each of our subsequent visits to IM. Service has always been great as well as their food. Sitting in Caribe on Hidalgo street with a rum and coke lite and a dragon roll is our happy place and always our first stop when spending on the island. Thanks to you both, keep up the great work!

Thank you so much for your visit and for taking the time to do a review. That is one popular dragon roll and I think probably the most photographed dragon roll in the world! We look forward to seeing you again soon when you visit Isla.

Been eating here for a few years now and it never disappoints. So many different varieties of dishes are offered so everyone in your party is guaranteed they will find a dish on the menu that appeals to their palate. Some of our favorites are the Sticky ribs, grouper in a tamarind sauce, sushi, steak, etc. oh and be sure to leave room for dessert. The coconut cheesecake is to die for. When enjoying your dessert order some fresh brewed French press.

Thank you for your visits to Asia Caribe. One of the nice things about Isla Mujeres is that it brings people back year-after-year so we get to enjoy our customers over time. It sounds like you have sampled extensively from the menu and we're glad you have enjoyed everything. And definitely save room for dessert! Homemade cheesecake, chocolate-khalua mousse and ginger ice cream. Not that many places on Isla specialize in desserts. Ours are extra yummy! We hope to see you again soon!!

Funny story...I had posted on a FB group about where to get a good steak, and the owners replied stating they weren't a steak restaurant but had a very good rib eye. So low and behold, we were looking for the other place when we stumbled upon Asia Caribe, she remembered my post and we decided to give Asia Caribe a try...best mistake we ever made. The food was excellent! So glad we found this place. Everything was super fresh and the rib eye was excellent. I had the coconut shrimp and it was wonderful. The fresh spring rolls are a must! Can't wait to get back and try some of their Thai food. Loved the atmosphere of this place and the service was super friendly. Definitely recommend this place!!

Thank you so much for making such a good mistake!! We are very appreciative. It's true that we are not known as a steakhouse but our ribeye and filet mignon are among the best on the Island. My husband buys the whole tenderloin and the whole ribeye and we trim and cut our own steaks. Also, after 40 years in the business, he knows how to pick a cut of meat and our line chef is very good at cooking beef. It does take a special touch to get the done-ness just right. We'll hope to see you again when you visit Isla!
