Nothing fancy here, just consistent solid execution of the basics. Service is friendly and quick, menu is everything you expect from Mexico. Pleasant place to catch lunch and read a book.

A good place for breakfast. One of the best salsa roja that I've tasted. Staff is incredible friendly with guests and random people likewise.

With such a beautiful view and amazing food, be sure to stop here if you are in Mahahual. Caballo Blanco hosted our wedding in June 2015 for about 30 people and the food was phenomenal. It was the best food I have ever eaten at a wedding! Tina was a superb host and we could not have pulled off a... More

We had refreshments and a meal here while sitting on their beach. Being concerned about food and water in another country, we opted for mostly fried food. We did order the guacamole, and it was OUTSTANDING. The service was wonderful, and of course, this being Mexico, the prices were great. (especially compared to what we paid on the ship) If... More

Being an American there are times that you just got I have that burger! Since I live here in Mahahual I have had an opportunity to try almost all the restaurants here and as far as I'm concerned Caballo Blanco has without a doubt the best hamburger in town. Reminds me of the Jimmy Buffett song Cheeseburger in Paradise.
