Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A friend suggested we meet him here for lunch. Although the ceviche was truly delicious, we were disappointed with our shrimp skewers and cocktails and the ambience was non existent. Considering all the charming and fabulous places on Holbox this was just not worthwhile. Really loud, bad music playing from terrible speakers and plastic dining chairs were a total buzz kill. We couldn’t wait to leave which is saying a lot when you’re right on a beach.

The location is very good - on the beach with plenty of shade for eating lunch. The service was decent. The food is ok. We had fish tacos and shrimp tacos. The fish tacos could use more flavor and was a bit dry but there was quite a bit of fish. The shrimp tacos were fine, included small shrimp and a lot of vegetables. If you're going for the location, 5-star. If you're going for the food, 3-star.

We stopped in here after a walk along the beach it's a cute setting on the beach with little palapas. The beers were a little expensive but in keeping with the majority of island prices. The Pico de Gallo was delicious and chunky and the guacamole had good flavour. The plates looked delicious and substantial although we only stopped for snacks.

Wow this was a disaster! We’d read such good things but — long story short — we had a very rude server, all of our seafood was drenched in some sort of soy-like sauce and we paid £100 for the privilege. (Also they “couldn’t” take card, and then they “could” but only for half.) I suspect we had a really awful waiter and the kitchen staff were having an off day. But save yourself the trouble and go to one of the other amazing restaurants on the island. Whatever Raices was, it is no longer! The best I can say is that the portion sizes were generous.

My partner and I were simply walking past the restaurant and the friendliest man started talking to us. Gonzalo. He invited us to come by for dinner later that day and offered us a margarita on the house if we did. We returned for dinner and upon arrival we were given a huge warm welcome, Gonzalo had remembered our names and swiftly brought us our drinks. Over the course of the evening Gonzalo made recommendations on what to eat and we genuinely talked about many topics. His service was the best I had ever received at any restaurant and I have been to many. The food was delicious, freshly caught fish from that day and grilled. He brought us over to the grill to show us how they were cooking it and explained the varying sauces they used. The ceviche was the best we had in Mexico. Gonzalo thank you for a wonderful evening and I hope to make that trip with you into the jungle to see more ruins and cenotes. We loved it so much we went back on our final night and met Froy. His service also was incredible and he treated us to a drink on the house, wonderful conversation and recommendations. We had the seafood platter which was enormous and came literally in a treasure chest. Please visit this restaurant. It is an experience! The people are wonderful and it felt like home.

We found ourselves stranded on Holbox after the sailboat we chartered from Dream Yacht Charters in Isla Mujeres started falling apart. There were issues from the beginning but Holbox was the first inhabited place where we could abandon ship. Our captain met us that evening for a farewell meal and recommended Raices which he had bee coming to for years...even back when it was a 4x4 palapa. My wife ordered the shrimp ceviche for an appetizer and it was the best ceviche either of us have ever eaten. Unfortunately, the portion was so large we were too full to order anything else!

This is the spot in Holbox to watch the sun go down. Great bartenders, best ceviche in Holbox, reggae music, and the blowing of the conch shells to say goodbye to the sun as it sets down into the horizon. Chill vibes!

The location has changed and they’re no longer on the beach. Look for signs! You have to pull up several google maps to find it. It’s actually not a good location but if you find it it’s a hidden gem. All the locals will tell you it’s the best fish in the Island and they’re correct in saying that. The wait staff is excellent and very attentive. We ate there one night and liked it so much we went back for lunch and supper two days later. The fish cooked on the grill is cooked to perfection. We recommend the spicy garlic. The owner also guides and will cook your catch in various ways. We normally don’t rate restaurants on this sight, but had to on this one! It is well worth your time.

We went twice and had 2 dishes that were good but not great and they were the shrimp tacos and the shrimp cocktail . We also had 2 other dishes that were not so good and that was the fish tacos and the coconut shrimp dinner. Services was good and the price was decent. They do give you plenty of food on every order also the music was good.

This is one of our favorite restaurants to visit when we are in Holbosh. They have great fresh, ceviche, AguaChiles, whole fish you name it they have it! The restaurant has been located on the beach for many years, which is another one of the reasons we like it so much but unfortunately they had to move into town. We still visited them in town (because no way would we go to Holbox and not eat there!) and hope that they get back to their location on the beach very soon!

Great fish restaurant on Holbox Island but other dishes are also available. Excellent value on food and drinks. Service very polite friendly and helpful. If you are worried about mosquitoes don’t be the staff do everything to rid the area of the flying pests. Make sure to visit Raices when staying on Holbox Island.

If you want fresh fish, caught that day, prepared simply, this is the place. Paul, who greeted us, is a total character and a total charmer. We went twice: once for lunch and the second time for dinner. Our lunch was surprisingly vast with an amazing aguachile followed by a fish cooked on the charcoal grill. They're proud of the freshness of the fish, showing you what was caught that day so that you can choose what to have. The restaurant isn't near the square, so perhaps that is why it was never busy. It's a pity that more tourists hasn't found this absolute gem.

Terrific outdoor restaurant in the heart of Holbox. All fresh seafood that is grilled over an open flame at the back of the restaurant. The manager Pao is one of the friendliest individuals you will ever meet. Unbelievably accommodating. Don’t miss this gem.

We had a very good lunch on the beach at Raices. The view is naturally beautiful since it's right on the beach , they play nice music with a lot of reggae. Service was very good , tacos , tostadas , and crab all were very good also. Will definitely return.
