Just a magical, delicious dining experience. The last place we ate in Holbox and by far the best. Highly recommend. It's not even that expensive. They do take reservations and only cash.

What a restaurant! I booked a week prior via Facebook. It’s a bit unassuming on a side street under a gym (Can you imagine if it was on the sand instead?). We got there 10 minutes before our reservation and no one is in there,...More

We knew that we needed to make reservations for this place. So, we passed by on Saturday to try and make a reservation for later in the week and they were closed. Sunday, we stopped by and they were closed. Their website states they are...More

We went their and were not disappointed. This restaurant deserves n°1 rank in Holbox. Food was succulent, generous and full of inventive combinations. The way the cook prepares and serves the dishes showes he took time to elaborate your dish and that he loves what...More
