Just returned from Javi’s where we had wonderful Parmesan encrusted grouper and great margaritas. We have been to Javi’s in years past, and have always had good food — this year it seems even better! If you are visiting Isla Mujeres, don’t miss it.

Javi’s was recommended to us by our concierge at Mia Reef. Very close to walk to, and easy to find. Had the seafood platter- fresh red snapper, shrimp, and lobster. All excellent! Relaxing music during dinner as well. Would return to Javi’s!l
