Awesome Italian Seafood Cuisine. They also have Mexican and American food for breakfast and lunch. Restaurant is in the open and under a palapa. Only minor annoyance was the bugs just be sure to bring some bug spray. Definitely was not enough to keep us away. Staff was excellent and friendly.

This is the bar and restaurant for the hotel we stayed in for a week. It is an independent entity. They let us run a tab all week, took great care of us, kept our bottles of wine in refrigerator overnight, overall nice people who knew us and anticipated our needs.

This small restaurant on the grounds of La Palapa is an intimate spot where you can eat on the beach or inside. The breakfasts are very good - the fruit plate is huge with pina, papaya, melon, banana, & sandia. The lunch menu is somewhat limited but if you are too lazy to get off the beach and go into town it will do. I had dinner there twice. Once for the lobster - perfectly grilled and once for a divine Risotta Nero - cuttlefish in its ink an Italian specialty. The owner also has a restaurant in
Sardinai and it shows.

Try the shrimp salad or tacos for lunch. Excellent blended drinks, 10 feet from the ocean. Energized, happy wait staff. Fun place to eat, open for breakfast, lunch or supper.

Arrived by beach after everyone I asked for directions said there is no Punta Baja, is that a sign there not welcome in the community?

We ordered 2 glasses of wine, thought is was a nice jester that they brought us a bottle of wine, 2 spritzers, bread and oil. No questions asked. Ordered 2 entrees, we wanted Lobster they said no lobster today so I asked for veggie primavera instead of the lobster version, I got soggy noodles no veggies at all my guy also wanted lobster, but fish it all they had, really? My food arrived early but my guys was being deboned and took awhile. Over all huge rip off, we could of had 6 amazing dinners here in Holbox and wine for the price we paid at Punta Baja. Super disappointed, what a rip off.
